Possessive behavior in dogs is actually quite common. We often see them guarding their favorite toy or sleeping spot, or making sure other pets in the house stay away from their feeding bowl or treat “cookie jar.” In a way, it’s hard to blame them for protecting what they believe belongs to them, and that includes their human.
Jealousy in dogs can occur when you bring in a new pet, start a new relationship, have a baby or when there is any other change in your life which takes your attention away from your dog. Watch as this adorable pooch tries to attract owner’s attention, by whining and wagging his tail. The adorable pooch seems desperate for the human touch and is obviously green with envy!
