Is this normal?

I have this dog that I just got and she has a problem with me, she is fine with everyone else but she acts scared of me, could this be because I am pregnant and she knows it?

  • Could be anything. One of my dogs can't stand anyone that is high strung in nature, just will absolutely not accept them the way she will anyone else. Do you know her past?

  • Yes! I have been a Vet Tech for many years. Dogs will act different when they know a woman is pregnant.

  • Could be. Also could be that she's heard you yell or act in a certain way that has scared her. Just be very gentle and calm around her and hopefully she comes around.

  • I have been pregnant 3 times and each time i have been around dogs and i have never had this situation. Hopefully she will come around soon.

  • Maybe you have a smell about you that reminds her of something unpleasant.

  • You might remind your dog of someone that has abused him- i would try to spend time with him alone- praising him alot & taking him on walks- i am sure he will come around in time- Good Luck!
