1 >>> usuing his paws is a sign of intelligence.

2 >>> learn dog behaviour. he's not cheating.

3 >>> your pregnant. protect yourself. don't
do things that encourages your dog to put
his paws on you.

4 >>> protect your baby. if your dog puts
his paws on your baby it's your fault.
watch the dog and the baby closely.
never leave them alone.

Can I get him to knock this off? Teach him that it hurts?
It's like he doesn't realize he is big and can hurt me....
