Protective Jack

by Shelley

I have an 8yr old female JRT named Sam. I also have two children 10 and 5. For the past couple of months if Sam is laying with me and someone (hubby or kids) come near me she growls and in some cases will go after my hubby. It mostly happens at night but its becoming worse. She's always been very close with me but this is becoming a concern. Not sure how common this is or is it due to her getting older. Any feedback would be appreciated. Thank you.

JRT's love their owner, often favoring one. Many dogs do this. Others in the family need to give her extra love, which means to them, their very favorite treats. Whatever that is. and be extra kind. It's not a big deal.
