Question:

I was wondering if there is anything that I can do when my daughter brings over her baby. Pete our JRT is a wonderful dog, however since the baby has arrived his personality has changed. Pete always barked when someone came into our home, and barked for quite sometime. Now however, it not just the barking he jumps up and tries to bite her hands or feet. We tried to do the doll things, the blanket everything that has been suggested to us. We love him and I don't want to crate him all the time or put him in a room while she is here. I will be babysitting my grand daughter at least twice a week and I don't want to get rid of him. What do you suggest can be done with him. My vet said to keep them separated but AI am try to be understanding of his feeling also. Please help.
