Puppy jumping on me when I raise my voice
 
Just kinda curious about what this behavior means:

Warden jumps on me when I raise my voice. For example, if we are outside playing etc and the neighbor dogs (completely unsocialized) start barking and I tell them to quiet, Warden runs to me and jumps up.

If bf and I argue (rarely, but it happens) warden will jump up if I'm standing, sit on my lap if I'm sitting, and once he even laid on top of me, covering my head.

Im sure he knows I'm not yelling at him, so what does this mean?

He also follows me everywhere and wants to be by my side at all times; even if he's been sleeping he'll get up and follow if I leave the room. I know they are Velcro dogs so I don't wonder much about that, just thought I'd provide extra info.

Thanks!! Just curiosity

A raised voiced means excitement (whether good or bad excitement) this is your dogs way of showing his excitement as well.

Oh! Haha that's a straightforward answer, thanks!

I'm guessing the reason he doesn't do this to fb is because he's not as bonded with him?

Might not be comfortable with him enough to do it or possibly the bf blocked it doesn't reinforce the behavior or punished for it, and the pup decided not to repeat the action.

I'm no expert but that would be my guess. My girl is much more bonded with me and shows more reactions to my moods or excitement than to my husband.

Yeah idk I always correct him and he knows the "off" command well usually - plus bf pretty much encourages the lapdog behavior as he likes to cuddle the dog, so maybe more of that first one haha.

Thanks!

It's important for you to remember that Warden is focused on you. Your behavior will have a direct result on your dog's behavior.

Thanks :)
This doesn't happen often, I was just curious. I feel that Ward and i are in sync a lot of the time lol so the excitement explanation makes perfect sense.
