We've been married for 3 years and I'm expecting our first child. I'm currently 7 months pregnant and while I've never liked the dog, things are coming to a head now. He had the dog before we met and he has TONS of energy. Money is a tight and we can't afford a dog walker/doggie day care. The dog sheds like you wouldn't believe and has never been trained. I've been on my husband since we moved in together to train the dog, but he always half-asses it and the dog just reverts back to bad behavior (like jumping up on people, scratching and pawing at people if they don't pet him 24/7, snapping in people's faces if you push him away from you, begging, and jumping up to snatch food etc.) He's knocked me down twice so far since I've been pregnant. Once it was because I was holding hamburger meat and the second time it was because I came home and he was excited. I'm lucky it wasn't at the top of the stairs. I hate this dog and I'm sick of the constant cleaning and bad behavior. I am also allergic to it and have to take allergy meds daily to deal with the symptoms. Can I ask him to get rid of it? He's so defensive about this damn dog but doesn't work to train it and the bad behavior persists!

you're allergic? omg why wouldn't your husband get rid of the dog if you're prone to allergic reactions and are pregnant? is he blind? I mean okay yeah dog is a man's best friend and people get attached but you're his wife:P and you bear his future child. whats more important... wife and child? or dog? its really not that hard. and this doesn't mean he has to get rid of the dog, simply just let another family member or friend take care of it for the time being until things are settled down with the pregnancy and everything.0
