Aggression

by Nancy Haun
(Morristown Tennessee USA)

We rescued a 9 month old GP she weighs about 100 lbs. She gaurds everything. When she is in the living room she will attack my pit mix female upon entering the room. However they are best friends outside. They play and play and have even eaten off the same bone at the same time. What can I do to stop the agression inside the home?

How long have you had her?

Did you do proper introductions of your two dogs?

The big problem could be you have two females. This is not always a good scenario. We never recommend the same sex in a house.

You need to separate the dogs via a gate until your Pyr decides she will accept your mix. This may take some time and there may always be a territorial issue.

It doesn't sound like aggression but rather, typical of a Pyr, she is territorial especially of her house from another female dog.

Patience
by: Travel Bear

Our GP rescue was very leary around us and we didn't even eat from his bowl. He would wait until we left the room to eat. I started feeding him on the back porch and would close the door. He would then go and eat his food. Today, after 5 months, he doesn't care who's in the room and he happily eats his dinner. Lots of stress on my part that turned out to be nothing. He just needs patience.
