In my opinion, My 5 yr QH doesn't nip. But does he?
While I am caressing his neck he will sometimes GENTLY grab at a coat sleeve or my scarf. The hood attached to my coat. He is mostly lipping these items and may grab I tiny piece of material. When his teeth does connect with the material he doesn't swish his head.
I usually extract any cloth and laugh. To me it is bonding. But am I wrong?
There is no aggression in his posture. His eyes are soft and droopy. One back leg cocked.
Is this the start of a bad behavior? Otherwise he is completely submissive. Great, no excellent tying and ground manners. If I move my position while grooming he will respond by stepping away from me (if I am near a wall) always to respect my space.
It's soooo cute when he sniffs me and nuzzles my scarf the mouths it. Is it bad?
