    Is hubby bothered by the dog's behavior? Does he think your dog behaves better than his dog? I get the impression hubby doesn't want any training tips. Your post doesn't say that hubby is bothered by...

    I know dogs will respond to tension, arguments, and raised voices. Makes sense some sympathetic cats would, too.
