Netural Territory
by: Donna

Your email did not work.

How long have you had each dog?

Have they been properly introduced (outside of the home on neutral territory)?

It seems you have a male and a female.

Is the male neutered? If not, make sure to neuter him. He'll be less territorial although it will take some time. When the female is old enough, spay her.

Get the pronged collar off the male. You'll injure him by him pulling on it. He'll just feel pain and associate that with the female.

Has your male always gotten along with other dogs coming into his house?

You cannot force them to get along. If he has been around longer, he does not want to share his house. It's been his territory for awhile.

The pup should be crated, anyways, when you're not home. This keeps her safe from chewing things and, she gets her own space. http://info.drsophiayin.com/crate-training-handout/

These things take time. You will have to keep them separate until male is ready to accept female. When on walks, have one person walk each dog on either side and let them get used to each other that way. They'll know the other is there. Also have someone walk ahead and allow male to sniff female's bum and then the other way around. Don't allow either dog to turn around to stop the sniffing. Just a quick sniff and walk on.

It's important to let them get used to each other on neutral territory.

They also must be fed separately all the time.

serious issue
by: Anonymous

You love your dog. He's beautiful and looks so happy, pampered by his 2 human servants. You are so indulgent that he knows he owns everything. You, your space, your food...he has dominion so why share this privileged life with another canine? What's in it for him, after all?
With your loving indulgence, you have created a dangerous imbalance. He has dominance and your pup is at great risk of being eliminated by him as he is supreme, and you have taught him he has that choice.
Your photos tell the story; he owns the furniture, so he chooses were he will sleep. You allow him to stand up against you, so he has shown you that he dominates you also. And, he will not share. They are a big powerful dog and strong minded into the bargain. So, good luck changing this anytime soon.
The REAL risk is that one day one of his servants may do something he disagrees with, and the human will be quickly disciplined...in dog fashion. This could be you, or this could be a visiting grandchild. You think of him as a big sweet marshmallow but he's a dog. He does what he does to get what he wants. Please do not resort to any training methods that use intimidation or pain as a motivation. Your sweety will challenge you and this could end badly. Do find a positive reinforcement trainer familiar with this breed to teach your dog, and you, balance. Work hard on this. And, do rehome the puppy for her safety and yours. Good luck.

Training

Yes, never use punishment on your dogs, never.

Dr. Sophia Yin is a great resource.

You should bring in a positive-reinforcement trainer to show you how to work with your dogs. Make sure the trainer follows Karen Pryor, Drs. Ian Dunbar or/and Sophia Yin.


Never send your dogs away for training. You need to learn how to manage your dogs at home.
