My GSD growls when laying down and I am petting him. What is up? Any advise besides leave a sleeping dog lie.
Just curious, how would you correct the dog?Just me but I would have corrected it as not acceptable behavior the first time it happened. Sometimes they don't like to be pet or bothered when they're sleeping for instance but growling back? Never.
There were weeks upon weeks when I used to pet my 4-6 month old occasionally, trying to keep him awake and not sleep too early so as not to be fully awake too early in the morning. They might moan or sigh. Growl? Never.
