Stanley is in trouble and going to lose his allowance. He ate mom's ear muffs (the ones she used running) and he jumped all over her (for the millionth time), scratched her legs and snagged her new fluorescent yellow running shirt. The trouble is that Stanley loves to jump all over mom, not dad, just mom. If he sees her getting ready to pet me he will fly (through the air) across a room to land on her to try and stop her from petting me. He grabs her hands in his mouth to try and stop her. She tried to give Stanley more attention but he keeps messing it up by biting her hands and wrists. But the REAL trouble is when mom and dad come home and take us out of jail or the Doodle Clubhouse!
|We hear mom and dad and wait calmly, UNTIL Stanley sees them then he goes bezerk!|
|Dad tries giving Stanley kibble to calm him down. Dad lets me out because I am already calm, I am a calm Dood. That is another problem for Stanley. In comparison he is crazed.|
|Now we're out of the Clubhouse, eating kibble treats.|
The pictures end here because Stanley turned around and started attacking mom and scratching her up. No matter what she did he would not stop! He was too "wild wif joy". When she tries to walk away from him he grabs her hands "on the fly" as he runs past. Last time his teeth scraped her hands up. She is so frustrated with him she started using HBO words! Mom says Stanley is obviously jealous. He only acts this way with mom. He is pretty calm around dad and usually only has this (really bad) behavior problem when he has been separated from our pawrents. Any advice or suggestions?

Pee Ess - Mom said to tell you that these attacks are not mean attacks but more like bull-in-a-china-shop-leg-shredding friendly ones. Even when we think we have him calmed down (which is hard since he is wound up tighter than a clock), the second he turns away from dad and sees mom he winds back up and goes into his hyper-jump attack mode. Mom thinks he might have some separation anxiety too. But 2 minutes after he is done jumping all over mom and shredding her bare legs he is fine again. I don't like him jumping all over mom like this so I have started biting his back leg to distract him. Sometimes it helps.
Pee Pee Ess - We just did an experiment I sat on dad's lap and he petted me. Stanley wasn't bothered. I got on mom's lap and she petted me and Stanley came flying across the room and grabbed her wrist to make her stop.
