Puppy is acting out against my husband
So our new puppy has become extremely attached to me. In some ways its really good because he's going to be my service dog, so I want him to be bonded to me. When we go for hikes and such, my husband will run ahead of me and Huter (puppy) will follow him for awhile. But he will not get too far ahead of me. He stops following my husband and will turn around and wait for me to catch up before continuing on. I like this behavior.
However, there are other behaviors that are proving to be very annoying and potentially serious problems. Huter is like the perfect dog for me. He's potty trained when he's with me. He listens to me. Obeys, does his tricks, sits at a door before entering, walks well on leash, comes when I call etc... But whenever my husband is watching him or trying to interact with him, he's a little demon puppy. He bites, pees/poops on the floor, ignores him, pees on husbands dirty laundry etc... Its not even when he's unsupervised. He NEVER has an accident when he's with just me. But for example, yesterday, husband and I were in our room with Huter. Huter barked at the door to go potty. Nick got up to take him out, Huter turned away from the door, walked over to Nicks dirty uniform and peed right on it. Then walked over to me for attention and love. I did not give him attention or love after that. Nick picked him up and took him outside to his potty place.
Has anyone else experienced this? That was just one example. This stuff happens frequently and its obviously directed towards my husband not me.
