We have had our 6 mos. old labradoodle, Max, for a little over a month. Apparently, he lived in the basement of the old owner's house and wasn't treated well. Since we have had him we spend lots of time with him--He loves to chase balls in our backyard. For the most part he is sweet. He does seem to have alot of separation anxiety. If we have to go inside for a little while he gets quite upset. However, the new problem that has been happening for a week--he growls at me --when he is frustrated. For instance, he wanted to play outside this morning and he was frustrated when I could not. He can inside jumping and growling. Thise was the third time this week. He does get quite a lot of exercise. We have a big yard and either me or my husband play with him. How do I handle this. I really love this dog, but frankly this morning I was afraid of him.
