Guest NRN13 Posted August 21, 2013 Share Posted August 21, 2013 Hi again. So we have now had Cleo for 2 1/2 weeks. She is doing great. Has mastered the stairs, learned her name and "come", happily sleeps and naps in her crate (door open), no real digestive issues, improving on the leash, and no space or sleep aggression. Sweet as can be. One thing we have noticed though, is snarliness when she has a rawhide. She is not even 2 yet, and still really needs to chew. She has lots of toys and chewy things, but we thought we would try a rawhide bone. THe first time, she growled when I got close. We traded up with her favorite special occasion treat, and it was ok. I gave it to her again today when I was alone with her and she growled and barked at me when I was close. I got her interested in the treat and traded up. The rawhide is now gone. My question is, is this something I need to work on to remedy or do I just never give her a rawhide? I work with her daily, give her treats and kibble from my hands (which she has just started taking), and try to get her to associate hands with good things. She is very young and really naive I know this is very common when greys are first adopted. But will she just become more comfortable and not as possessive with time or do I need to work hard on this? And besides trading up, what do I try? Thanks for the wealth of knowledge you all have (and your willingness to share)! Nicole Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
