Gumdrop is only 10 weeks old - we got her 2 weeks ago - and is doing so well with all of her adjusting and training. She is very sweet and affectionate. But in the last week, she has growled at my husband 3 times, and myself 2 times, when we try to pick her up. We are not hurting her, she is just showing a little "sass" . We need to nip this in the bud and stop this unacceptable behavior.
When she growls she has been either wanting something badly (to get into a room), or was sleeping, or is excited (had been playing crazily and it's time to go home). In other words, she is making little spoiled puppy complaints - like a little tantrum.
Anyone who knows how to deal with this kind of unacceptable puppy aggression, please let us know.
