Hello! My Westie has just turned 1 year old! He’s extremely well socialised, very affectionate and well behaved! Very stubborn like all stereotypical Westies though! Haha! very recently in the last few weeks, we’ve noticed that in the evenings, he’ll jump up beside us on the couch to relax or nap. If we try to stroke / pet him, he’ll snap and whine (no biting, no growling). If I leave my hand there he might very gently mouth it and will eventually lick it before he’ll jump up and move away. he’ll do this during the day too. 99.9% of the time it will be when he’s napping / relaxed. Otherwise he’s honestly the most affectionate wee thing and loves cuddles! he’s not in pain and nothing wrong with his skin as I’ll touch his hips / back etc at other times and he’s fine. im just trying to work out what he’s trying to tell us? Or if it’s just his hormones making him grumpy? (He’s not currently neutered). its just very new behaviour so trying to work it out! many advice very welcomed! Thank you!
