I have a yellow lab which had some issues when I got him as a pup. He would never want to leave the house and be sociable. Now he is 2 years old and wants to leave the house for walks, and loves to explore. But lately he has been very loudly verbal, whining and groaning in the mornings when he sees me. He gets so excited and wants to play, which I do play with him, but being that verbal he wakes up the house, and I leave for work at 6am. Has anyone had this problem and has a solution to keeping him quiet.
Welcome to the forum.
Sorry, I don't have a solution for your situation. (I did not vote, because I don't really understand what you are trying to determine.)
I didn't vote either, for the same reason as above, but wanted to say Welcome From NY!!!
Welcome, I have no solution to your issue. But if you can find an answer it will be from someone on this forum.
