It sounds like your dog is craving some one-on-one time with you and your wife. Maybe spend sometime with the dog in the yard while the baby is sleeping? Or take the dog for a nice long walk, while pushing the baby in a stroller? Or buy a few new toys? Figure out what your dog needs in order to feel loved and important...

Hang in there. The teen stage is super tough. My heart breaks for Bella. She was the baby and is now feeling a little displaced. Kai has been there and done that when Bella came along and sounds like his maturity has added to his outlook. The changes in the home can be so stressful for both of you new parents that of course your dogs are going to feel it too.

If you can afford it you might hire a dog walker. I know this can be expensive but I also know having a new baby is exhausting for both mom and dad. And being tired can be even more challenging to caring for a teen boxer and a new baby. With all the chaos of a new baby you are probably wiped out as is your wife. I remember being a new mom and feeling too tired to walk the dog or even toss a ball. Bella might enjoy being the star for a while with a hired dog walker. There is also doggie day care but I think a dog walker that comes to your house and spoils Bella for a little while might do the trick. Burning off some stressed out energy could help Bella. And then when she returns tuckered out she might feel less destructive and with less anxiety. And be the beauty you know she is.

To update, bella is starting to calm down with getting in trouble.

Its winter in ohio, so no backyard playing. She does her business and gets back inside!

Bought her some new toys to keep her busy, and anytime my wife has the boy I play with her.
As of 12/2012

Kai (Male) 6 years old 90 lbs

Bella (Female) 2 years old 65 pounds
