My name isXXXXX have been working professionally with animals especially dogs in both health and behavioral issues for over 18 years. I have over 14,000 satisfied customers. It will be my pleasure to work with you today.
In order to supply you with the best information, I do need to ask for some additional information. Once I receive your answer, it will likely take me about 30-45 minutes to type up your response. I hope you can be patient.
How old is your dog in months or as close as you can get it?
Is he neutered?
How much obedience training has he had?
Do you walk him daily?
If so, how long are your walks and when do they happen?
Is there anything different about the mornings he does this?
Is it always in the morning?How often is he fed?
He is approximately 14 months old (this is a guess because he was a rescue, they found him at about 7-8 months old). He is neutered. We walk or jog him early every morning for 30-40 minutes. He went through obedience training at a prison for three months before we got him. He is fed twice a day, once in the morning and once in the evening. This behavior only seems to happen in the morning after he has been walked and fed. He doesn't do it every morning so it is hard to tell why he does it. Many times he will mouth me a little and I will command him to sit or lay down and and that will put a stop to it. But when he starts jumping and barking/growling and mouthing he doesn't listen and nothing works except timeouts.
