Hi everyone, I really need some advice. My 9 month old puppy, Kal, (Collie X Huntaway) doesn't seem to like children very much. My partner has a 6 year old son who comes over 2 nights a week. The 6 year old and Kal play together a lot, and Kal isn't bothered by his presence overall. However, if the 6 year old goes to stroke him, Kal doesn't like it; he starts to growl and so I ask the 6 year old to stop in case he gets bitten. Sometimes though, I'm so focussed on getting the 6 year old to stop stroking Kal in time, that I probably don't tell off Kal quick enough. Kal also doesn't like the 6 year old being near his food. Once, my partner's nieces and nephews came over (ages 8, 9 and 10), and Kal was sat growling not looking at them, so my partner went to pick him up to put him upstairs, when he became reactive and nipped my partner's nose! I figure that I'm best sorting the relationship between Kal and my partner's son first, but not sure the best way. We have him give Kal treats and play with him a lot, but it's not helping the stroking situation. Many thanks!
