I don't understand what yiu mean that dogs don't get their feelings hurt Woody is very sensitive. I have never given him a rawhide again since my trying to take it from him and getting bite. He does have his own bed and sleeps on it 85% of the time, sometimes he seems sad or insecure and at those times he wants to be close to my husband and me and that is usually when he gets on the bed. If he sees our smaller dog on the bed it seems to make him sad. He has never been aggresive any other time then the one time with the rawhide all other times have been when he is disturbed while sleeping
This aggresive behavior is when he is asleep and then is abruptly woken I would like to understand why he gets this way.
