marko- Thank you for the advice and kind words. I will work with Zeus on calming down upon my command. I will definitely remain watchful, especially as you mentioned because some labs can have strong prey drives. We did adopt a lab because of their gentle nature knowing that we would have children in our home. Our hope is that our son and him will grow to have a great relationship with one another.
Barkingdog- Thank you for your concern
Zeus has no issues with being woken up, . He is generally a very docile dog, which is why his behaviour towards our neighbour too me aback.
