My wiem has started 'talking/crying' to the other dogs when they have something she wants like a chew, even though she has one, she doesn't want hers.. Now.. the other dogs don't do this..

It just so happens she is now 2 and it sure reminds me of the terrible 2s in kids.

I can call her and she will come to me but she will go right back and do it again. The other dogs normally just get tired of hearing her and will walk off leaving the chew for her.

LOL...I'd much rather deal with it in dogs, than in kids!

LOL.. that is true.. I just find it so funny (NOT) that she is 2 and is doing this, I am sure it is to just drive me crazy.

Dogs often do go through a terrible two's stage just like kids. I hate to tell you this but Jazz's phase lasted until she has 5! At agility when she was about 4 1/2 I had a lady that breeds border collies ask me how old she was and when I told her she said" wow as she still behaves so immature!" Young at heart I guess

Now that she is 12 I would give anything to be back in those years she tended to annoy me !

I totally believe in the Doggie Terrible Twos !

My going-on-three dog does the same bark-in-the-face game your dog does...so pleasant, isn't it ?

In my house, it's a game between the 2 of them. The dog being "barked at" seems to enjoy it and often sets up the game (takes a toy and just holds it).

We're working on the "Quiet!" command...still have a ways to go .

Your dog is sooooo cute! As you say, just like a kid, but cuter because you don't expect it in a dog! Smart dog, too, I bet.

Thanks.. Yeah, she is smart.. She opens the patio door when she is outside by hitting the back of it and is now trying to open other doors using the door knob.

Riv, I guess my other dogs have done something similar but they never 'talked' like she does. One day I expect her to say 'give that to me or I am going to tell Mom'.. LOL

This may not go away. My collie is 7 and still talks to everyone (dogs, humans, etc). At least now she uses a low rumble chuff instead of whining or barking. If it were incessant or inappropriate, I'd get some more training. As it is, she really seem to be trying to tell us something.

We have 3 collies and the almost 3-yr. old female is a talker. She "yowls" if you are petting a sibling or if you're sitting in "her" favorite chair or if someone has a chew toy that she wants. It's really quite amusing and always makes us laugh.
