Do your dogs have nightly routines? Well Bf and Gf have one. When its bed time he races up the steps first then turns around and growls and slaps his paws on the wood floor. GF stops halfway up, sits, looks back at me then at her BF. She goes up a step repeats. All this time he growls and slaps his paws down. So she just walks up then casually saunters by him, BF then looks at me in confusion then follows her to my mother's bedroom. I have no clue why he does this. I think GF just plays along with him so he can feel alphaish for a second then quickly reminds him "nope, in your dreams".
