Colt is suddenly Growling at my wife?

Postby Chowdog2 » Sun Oct 11, 2015 6:01 am

First of all I want to say Hello to everyone here!

My wife and I have had 2 chows for a while. We have had Emma for 11 years and 2 years ago we got Colt. my problem is over the last 2 months Colt has just started growling at my wife for no reason that we can figure out. Now Emma has been fixed for years but Colt is not. now he only does it when she wants to pet him. he will play with her and lay around and be just be fine, but when she just wants to pet jim or hive him a hug he will growl. Any ideas as to why this is going on and what we can do to get him over it. we have had him from a puppy and dont know why this is happening, we have never been mean to either of them so we are at a loss.

Thanky you for any help you may give

Sounds strange. Especially if Colt has never had this issue before. Does he growl at you when you want to pet him? If he doesn't I would just leave him alone for a while and see if he snaps out of it. Maybe he's in a mood, and something she has done irritated him. Chows are funny that way, if they want hugs they allow them. If not, your not going to get one. If he's acting normal otherwise this will probably pass.
