sweet_ceana Posted October 13, 2007 Report Share Posted October 13, 2007 Part of Ceana's fear & agression draws from lack of companionship. Our attempts to socialize her at the dog park seem more over whelming than anything. She hasn't once tried to play with a dog at the dog park, but when we meet another dog one on one sometimes she will interact very positive and play. Part of her attitude also stems from Chris and I having to increase our work hours since the move. If you blow Ceana a kiss she will show you her teeth because she thinks you are leaving. We have been blowing kisses constantly and giving her treats and ball throws to dismiss this behaviour. It is almost at bay, but it does point out that she is more lonely then I would like her to be. The amount of work hours we put in at the same time is about to imporve. Once Feb. comes around Chris will be able to work from home and so she will only have two days where she has some alone time- and it will not be much. Come Feb. Chris will/ should be having knee surgery and will be home for 2 weeks straight. We know we want another BC, but we wanted to wait for ceana's issues to be "fixed." So my question is... if we brought in another dog is it possible that she would learn dog interactions better and more comfortably while also increasing her sense of companionship? Chris wants a puppy- but I want to rescue a boy that would get along with her and future children. (Strangely Ceana has all these problems but thinks kids are the greatest things ever.) Having Chris home for two weeks non- stop would make me more comfortable with bringing another dog in. We should have more space in Feb. as well. (another dog is 100% pending on if we move into a house since it would be a more nuetral territory & Ceana is a possesive dog.) We have had play dates at the house with dogs she loved and she did not have a problem with them at her house. I just want to make sure all goes as smoothly as possible. When Ceana gets along with another dog she is so happy, it is like nothing else. We really want that kind of constant bond for her. Do you think bringing in someone special for Ceana to play with and be a dog with could help our situation or is it a horrible mistake?
