So since we have adopted Pandora, Padrona has been showing signs of Resource Guarding/Dominance. We have not been able to give them new toys because the moment we do a fight breaks out between them and she has even been aggressive towards other dogs which is strange because we socialized her pretty young. She has also been aggressive with snacks and usually will go after our Min Pin. Pandora has a habit of mounting Padrona ( She is just finishing her heat ) and every time she does she is immediately told no and down. Pandora is spade where our Padrona is not yet, could this be a big factor in this situation? She even was growling and snapped at me today when I tried to get the toy away from her. Any advice would be fantastic.

Blessed Be

you may want to et your self a squirt bottle and fill it with cold water put it on stream,once she starts to show sigh of her dominance you may want to squirt her take the toy away then return it repeat as many times as needed until she gets the hang of it we share our things. that it is a good thing to share not a bad thing.if she is going after your other animals keep ker on a 6 foot least at all times while supervised. correct bad behavior as soon as it happens. remove her from the situation then return her once calm. repeat as much as neccessary just like giving a child time out. never put her in a crate for punishment. they thrive on attention. lack of attention is punishment enough. you may also consider having her spayed. this too will eliminate agression. best of luck

I have the same thing happening with the toys, but I just try and take charge of the situation and we go from there. It seems most dogs want to play with what the other dog has.

When you can't travel with your pugs ...

When traveling and can't take our babies with us we used to have a friend stay with them at the house. She let us know that they spend most of their time by the front door waiting for mama to come home. That broke my heart. Velma even tries to escape to "look for mama." One time it was many hours before she was found -- so so scary.Now we leave the girls at a friends house who has a doggie daycare. They do okay there but really keep to themselves/huddle together in a corner. I'm so conflicted.…See More
