How is the Mini with the pup? I ask because sometimes, especially in pups taken too soon from their mother and siblings it's GOOD to have an older, FAIR dog put the pup in it's place a couple of times. Of course, you must monitor and control all interactions, so no one gets hurt

Welcome!

Spaying and neutering can help somewhat, and like Kingsgurl said sometimes having an older dog to put the pup in its place helps a lot.

Puppie

Postby zifosgirl » Mon Jun 04, 2007 11:22 pm

Well every now and then Puppie can get really dominant. She constinantly pin Tomahawk on the ground by his neck. He'll lay there and let her, and when he tries to get up she'll pin him again. But i've only seen her do that once so far. He's been with us for about a week. Other times he'll bother her while she sleeping and she'll growl and snap and him. Most times he'll walk the other way ans find something else to do. I do try to reinforce Puppie as the dominant one. She eats first and jumps on the bed first and sleeps closest to me.

But what makes me confused between play and agression is sometimes he'll get really growly with her. I mean his fierce growl and curl his upper lip and lunge at her. and lately he'll hold on to her and shake. So far though Puppie has yelped in pain or anything. She'll often roll on her back and let the lil one bite her hind legs and neck. So I guess things are fine.

I have video's of one play session, take a look and let me know what ya'll think. that may really help me what to watch for. They kinda hard to see, I recorded it on my cell phone.
