So, I touched on the jealousy that Buddy's been displaying since I've started babysitting my niece, but I really feel it's getting out of hand. This morning he tried to jump in my  lap while I was holding her! He's started acting up, jumping when he knows he shouldn't, resource guarding (which has never been a problem before) and hiding when I ask him to go in his crate. And those are just a few little things off the top of my head.

I'm getting desperate here. Does anyone have any suggestions on getting him to accept her?


  1. I don't have kids - but here's an article that might help you:

  2. Oh no! The best for me is probably to give attention to both Buddy and your niece. To make sure that he is not neglected and then with time, let him know that your entire focus cannot always be with him. It's a hard process but the reassurance that he is not forgotten is important.
