My dog is being more obstinate and challenges me when I give verbal commands, more than usual. These traits are characteristic of her breed but lately it's been very acute. I wonder if it's because she notices a change in my scent now that I'm pregnant. Granted, she's been through a lot in the last month, having suffered a stroke of the spinal cord, complete paralysis of the back legs and subsequent physical therapy. She's back on her legs now, although very wobbly, so this could certainly be the source of her unusually willful behavior.
So I'm wondering if you've experienced any difference in your dog's behavior?
