i have a 5 yo papillion. we got him back in october so this is the 1st summer we’ve had him. we tend to get up later, sometimes 9 or on an awesome day 10! (the best part of the kid getting older!!!)
my husband is generally up b/w 5-7 to get ready for work and he’ll let Axl out. i dont like to sleep with a dog in my bed so my door stays shut. sometimes Axl sleeps with gigi and sometimes he sleeps out in the living room, this has been going on since we moved. he is not opposed to being by himself. in the last week though it seems Axl has figured out that if he sits in front of my door and whines long enough i will get up and me getting up, in his mind, equals food. shortly after hubby leaves he takes up position outside my door and starts. even when the kid was in school i didnt get up at 6!
any one have any ideas on how to stop this behavior??
