I saw in a recent post that dogs don't have thoughts of being angry therefore displaying bad behavior. My dogs are very well in the house. They don't chew things up, poo/pee inside, and don't jump on things (ie: Counter). But when my husband would go out for work for 2-3 weeks at a time, Mako, our youngest at 6 months at the time, would poo, pee, chew to destroy, and jump up at my counter. Even though I was still here. It stopped immediately when my husband came home. Then, I went on a trip with my children for a month, leaving hubby home with the dogs. Mako acted out again. Doing the same things as when hubby was gone. And he doesn't do it anymore, now that we're both home all the time. I can't believe that dogs don't have feelings of abandonment, anger, disappointment. Have you ever looked in a dog's eyes when they're begging you to get on your lap and you say no? There eyes change to a sad little look that breaks your heart. They're either great con artists of the heart, or they can think like that. :biggrin: Just so everyone knows this is just my opinion, these are just my personal thoughts and how I view animals, and I'm not asking for help. Thanks!
