Question for the dog peeps: Would your dog barking/growing at the night nanny concern you? We have two nannys working with us. One my dog LOVES and wags her tail, licks, follows around, etc. The woman is very sweet and I too get a good vibe from her. The other lady, however, is greeted by non-stop barking and growing from my labradoodle who I have never seen act like this. DH and I are trying to correct her behavior but every time the nanny has come (night 3 now) my dog acts the same. I find it odd and am wondering what she's picking up. Maybe I'm giving her too much credit and she's just being a bad dog? It's odd though because she is very well trained (she works with me) so for her to growl is bewildering. The nanny came very highly recommended by people we know and I think she takes good care of Finley (I go in to the nursery every 3 hours to pump so I am able to keep an eye on things) so idk.... Any input?
@mom2adoodle could it possibly be that the nanny is coming at night and that it's an unusual time for a visitor to come to the house? There's only been a few times my dog has acted that way around visitors to the house and usually it's due to some out of the ordinary circumstance (husband isn't home, it's late, she's meeting someone while on her leash, etc)
