Default A really close call :(



My daughter and Chloe were laying on a huge bean bag together. Chloe had a buffalo tendon. My daughter turned to Chloe and Chloe nipped her!!! I am so upset

Oh no! That's one thing with these guys, they act very quickly! Fortunately she didn't break the skin.

How is your daughter? She must have been shocked, surprised and felt bad that Chloe would do that! I don't know what to say! I had my first chi around little children, but, he never really had any chews or bones because our cockapoo wouldn't share, so nobody had any!

I hope your daughter is okay!

Thanks. Going forward, no tendons unless she is in her crate. Addison is ok. I explained to her that Chloe did note an to hurt her. She doesn't seem afraid o her which is good. I was worried about that. I am so glad she did not break the skin. This was a tough night.

So am I understanding that Chloe bit your daughter to "guard' her treat?
If so that is NOT ok under any circumstances.
Please do some research and treat this as a serious issue, she didn't break the skin this time, but that's not to say it could not be more serious next time.

I may be rare in my views that dog aggression to children is a deal breaker in my home.

I'm sorry this happened its really sad when your dog does something like that, my Sugar bit me during the summer, but hasn't done anything like it since.

Though if it had been my daughter it would have been a lot worse in my mind.

I hope your daughter is ok and sorry I can't help but just wanted to say I'm sorry this happened.

Awww poor baby! Kalisee did that once or twice to myself and my daughter a few months ago when she was "disturbed" by use...She got into trouble a nice long time out and has not attempted to do that. I think it is a "power trip" because they know that the kids are also the little ones in the home.

I feel badly for you because I know you feel betrayed by your little sweetie.

Rest be assured it is not "ok"! I was just saying that I was thankful that it wasn't worse. Chloe is a puppy and I am sure she was resource guarding. We have talked about that many time in the 4 training classes Chloe and I have done together. I will take nessary actions, like no tendons while roaming the house, and supervise Chloe around dd. Chloe is like one of my children. I will not "get rid of her" because we have a issue to work through. No dog is perfect.

Yes, I was upset and disappointed. Chloe had herself a long time out too. Not to mention all her "chewies" are gone. I will talk to my trainer and do some research, on the best thing to do moving forward. Thanks for your support.
