    He's also chewing monster unless supervised.

    He has always slept in a nice, safe, crate.. It's only now that he's being given more freedom. I wonder if subconsciously he just doesn't feel safe outside his 'den'?

    As part of my normal puppy training i'm always playing with his feet, opening his mouth, checking his ears and basically getting him used to being manhandled. I think im going to start doing the same thing while he's dozing off. Maybe try to get him used to be touched while sleeping outside his crate.

    I think i'll also try to wake him up more slowly (i did rub his belly before i picked him up yesterday.. he seemed to like that.. but then i went to slide my hand under him and he went ape-shiz-crazy).

    Or i'll just take a big 6 foot stick and strap a Mickey mouse hand on it... then poke him from a distance to wake him up.
    I would try to wake him with voice before I tried to touch him. Just until he gets used to waking calmly

    We had a deaf dog who reacted like that as a pup. We didn't realize she had gone deaf until she got a little older and she would startle and snap just like you described. Try banging on the floor with your foot so Kevin can feel you approaching, before reaching out and actually touching him to wake him up. You may want to get his ears checked.

    I would growl too if I was woken from a nice, deep sleep!

    You got good advice already. Just thinking that Kevin was scared/startled from the wake-up call and he's doing what dogs do when they're scared--trying to protect themselves. You could even go as far as giving him a tiny treat when you gently wake him up, or put the treat under his nose as he's waking up so he will associate something positive with waking up.

    HOLY CRAP.... why can I not see this handsome devil's picture!!! I am on a PC so it is not an iPad thingy.


    I agree with others... call his name, rub something over him or place a treat in front of his nose to slowly wake him up

    Daisy did this for a long time. Shes ten months old now. The best thing for us was to some how wake her up another way. I.e turn on a light, ask her if she wanted a treat, or shake the box of treats....She would come running. She has grown out of it. So there is hope lol
