Tammy525 Posted August 24, 2006 Report Share Posted August 24, 2006 New issue with the new pup: Yesterday they were finally playing like dogs and Scout went on a running spree and bowled her over. She yelped very loudly and he freaked. (she yelps all the time, he pays no attention unless he has caused the yelp). He wouldn't play with her the rest of the day, no matter how rude and persistant she was (happened before 8 am this am) Now today, he is playing again, but has rolled over on his back for her twice!! He made her yelp another time today and we praised him, but he was still freaked out again. I admonished him for rolling over for her, he jumped back up both times. Is this hopeless? Is there anyway to encourage a submissive dog to dominate the pup? We need him to help with her training. He is a perfect dog and we want her to be perfect, too!!(obviously I am asking way too much to have two perfect dogs, but you get what you expect, right?) She is very rough with him, biting his eyelids, jumping in his face, climbing on top of him. He is 53#, she is 5#. She is gentle with us.
