Default Anyone's chi get "mad?"

Has anyone experienced this with their chi?

I try to keep Angel away from busy work areas. He has a "safe" spot at home. Occasionally at work and home he will get underfoot. He isn't "little" - he weighs almost 9 lbs!

Well, if you "accidentally" stop on him, boy does he get mad!! He doesn't cry and whine, he barks, growls, and bites!! It's actually kind of funny to see him "get MAD" but it isn't. He doesn't bite hard, but nonetheless, I am working on stopping him. I hold him down and say no. He's even done it to Susie! I have never experienced this before with a small dog.

Geesh! No one steps on him intentionally, but wow, watch out!

All in all, he is doing very well, with his training. I need more discipline than he!

Jaxx doesn't get mad like that but you can tell when he doesn't like something because he makes a big "huff" sound. It is basically him taking a big breath and letting it out. It is so cute though.

Tell him to go lay down so he won't get stepped on. Now that you are aware he's always under foot, I'd be extra careful moving around so not to step on him. Although he's 9 lbs, he's still small & can get a broken bone just as easy as a 5 lb baby. Sometimes Midgie will get under foot & I have to tell her to go lay down so I don't step on her. When I have stepped on her, I'd grab her into my arms & say I'm sorry, Oh poor baby & smother her with hugs & kisses. Since your baby is getting mad, maybe he thinks you don't care about hurting him, or you meant to do it. Try cuddling him & telling him sincerely how sorry you are. You'd be surprised how much they understand & the difference it will make in his attitude.

Ike gets mad when he is over doing it with our pug, biting and pulling on her , trying to play, when I stop him, he shows his teeth to me and throws himself around , like I am scared.

Nineteen week old Fonzie has always been a very quite pup. He very seldom barks, only occasionally when he gets very excited playing and then he kinda startles himself when he does. I have never heard him growl. Anyway, yesterday he was lying on my bed and I was in a chair next to him fooling around on my iPad that was sitting on my lap. I started watching a video from youTube and all of a sudden the most furious growling come out of this little 2 1/2 lb puppy. I guess he thought that man was going to get his Mommy.

Douglas gives the most heart wrenching, loud screams when he is stepped on or accidentally bumped with a foot. (I think he was kicked at one point. I tried to scootch him out of the way with my foot once and he acted like I was about to pummel him to death)

I'd say a firm NO when there's aggression and once there is no aggression lots of cuddles will help.

Yes, Star got mad the other day when I clipped her nails, especially with daddy.

Daddy was giving her belly rubs while I was clipping her nails. She was so mad afterwards that she wouldnt go to daddy, even when daddy calls her to come, and she always goes to him when called except for the other day, she just gave him major stink eye.

Hmm, sounds like something I can try! It all happens within seconds and he's already got hold of my pant leg! Sometimes it happens when I am opening the door to take them outside. He goes out on a leash 99% of the time, so when I step back while opening the door, he can get stepped on! I always try not to step on him, but it does happen! Luckily I'm on the small side! Hahaha,
