My dog was naughty this morning
March 11, 2009 11:22am CST
My dog, Secret had eaten his breakfast and been outside into my back garden. I was feeding my toddler son in his highchair. Magic, my other dog was sitting on my sofa. All of a sudden I noticed Secret do some dog mess on my son's play mat. I said "no" and put him in my garden. He had just been outside so I wonder why he did that on my son's mat. Has anyone got any idea of why my dog did that? Thanks

He was probably claiming your toddler's mat as his territory. Perhaps he has a thing about the child, in that he gets a lot of your attention, and he thought if he messed up his mat, then he would draw attention to himself. Either that, or there is some odour from your son, on the playmat. I'm not sure. Brightest Blessings.

Could have been just an accident. They do happen at times. Or it could have been some jealousy or maybe he was mad. Keep an eye on him and see if there is pattern. Hopefully it was just an accident and it won't happen again. Time will tell what the true story was.

It may be jealousy. I had a fiest terrior who was so jealous of our granddaughter that I finally had to get rid of him. He was six months old and had been around her since she was two weeks old. When she started to crawl and walk he got overly protective of his water and food dishes plus his toys and bit her in the face. He went down the road after that incident but before that he would pee on the area in front of her toy box, on her beanbag chair but then he would want to sleep next to her. I tried working with him but when he bit her it was done. He bit her in the face just below her eye. I gave him to an elderly man who had no family and it was a perfect fit. I did not want to have him put down as he was a young dog but I did not trust him with our granddaughter after that.

i also have a dog, a medium size one. she is very naughty, she's all black and has beautiful eyes and a big tail. every day she does something naughty, pulls out the flowers, runs after the cat, barks at midnight and weaks me. so, , even she is not a good dog, i love her and she's one of the family.
