My boyfriend of 3 years gets very annoyed with my dog who Iv had for just over a year.
I wanted a dog my whole life (I’m 38) & until Christmas 2020 this wasn’t possible. I got my dream dog (a mini dachshund) and he’s everything I ever wanted. Me & my boyfriends relationship is hard work and since iv had my pup it’s gotten worse.
He has no patience with him & has told me he hates dogs (he has and has had dogs all his life) and plays rough with him but too rough, he doesn’t like it when he sniffs him, or touching him at all when he’s just sitting on the sofa.
I just don’t know what to do, I end up loosing my cool because I’m fed up of telling him not to be so rough, telling him to tell my pup No instead of pushing him hard away, it’s got to the point where last night I locked my pup up in the kitchen for both of their benefits,
although it’s my pup who’s suffering but I’m keeping him from getting hurt (my bf doesn’t a lot of weight training so doesn’t know how strong he is) I love my bf so much but I don’t see a solution to this.
- Did you guys not discuss this in advance? I wouldn’t date someone who was unkind to animals. Hard pass for me.
- Instead of locking your pup up in the kitchen, lock your boyfriend outside and tell him to kick rocks. Mistreatment of animals is a deal breaker.
