Rusty, his backyard Scooby snacks & the happy growl.
We are absolutely thrilled to have the opportunity to be in our 4 year old puppy dog Rusty's life. It's been nothing but a positive/fun experience. He is absolutely spoiled rotten. My wife & I joke that we think that he thinks he's human.
One of the tricks he taught me, was how to receive a kiss. I pretend I'm gonna return the French kiss but at the last minute close my mouth & hold my breath.
Our beloved pupster snacks on my wife & I call Scooby snacks (his terds) at least once a day. His breath is pretty tough.
Anyone else been down this path?
This issue has been rather recent. I too searched this but I must not be using the right search words?
A couple weeks ago the wife & him were out in the living room & wheeled in from sleeping. Like always he picked up the nearest chew toy or his Kong ball (he loves this thing)
He gets so excited & starts the wiggle dance so hard that I think his body shapes the letter "U"...and while this is going on he lets out 6-8 second low growl, wiggling like crazy the whole time. He's done it with me twice & tonight he did to my wife. She sort a freaked out but I assured her begrudgingly that he likes her more than me so no worries..
Any words of advice I can relay to her to help calm her fears.
Thanks in advance.
Ugh, the poop eating is common enough. Some people say it's because the dog is lacking something in his diet... Other people think it's just because the dog likes it. My dog, Dexter, eats poop regularly. I have doggy mouthwash to put in his drinking water (can be found in pet stores), and I brush his teeth. I have tried nutritional supplements, but that didn't help. You can try putting Tabasco sauce on his turds to deter him... But if you're going to do that, you might as well just clean up the poop while you're there.
As for the growling thing... It sounds like your dog is playing. Maybe I'm missing something? My dog does that sort of thing all the time. He's trying to get me to play with him.

My golden runs three circuits around the house with a toy in preparation for a walk, growling and burbling (hard to describe this sound) the whole time. Tell your wife that your pup is simply telling her what a wonderful life he has, trying to express his joy in terms she can understand. Not one thing is threatening about a golden wiggling himself into a U and "growling" at the same time
Golden retrievers think life is a party thrown especially for them
