    Default First lovers tiff

    Harley and Bella had their first little scraps last night, she is coming up on 3 years and maturity so I was expecting something to start happening soon. First one was because Bella was sleeping on her bed and she has smooshed it up so I was fixing it for her and Harley swooped in to try and steal it even though his was fine. She was not impressed and told him so. Second one I am not sure what happened as I was in bed but it was a little longer than the first.

    Nothing to crazy though, it was more just growling and doing the weird mouthy/pushy thing.

    Ahh. How not cute at all.
    Bernie and Pohm went through a relationship spin out. Every little thing he did, was wrong in her books suddenly. Seriously was demonstrated, why they call em bitches.
    Mine kinda went, slightly longer, slightly longer and more loud, then slightly longer and 'accidently' knocking the other off their feet. Hard impact fighting zoomies style.
    I left them to it, having posted on here, and sure enough, they worked it out themselves. I just sat a boundary of "take your domestic OUTSIDE NOW". Same with all fighting. Only whisper fights, led prostrate, pawing each other and nibbling each other. Roughly 7-8pm daily

    Lol she sure is a little cow! I wish she would mature in her "I am a psycho staffy" and start calming down a bit! haha wishful thinking I don't think that will ever happen. I just hope it doesn't become a regular occurrence to the point where one of them gets hurt!

    Hi Jadielee87

    It's just another training opportunity. You set the limits on what is and isn't allowed - especially in the house.

    What you need to watch out for is ongoing escalation or if your training opportunity just shifts the fights to when you're out - usually dogs just sort it. Sometimes it gets way more serious than that and you'd need to separate them when you can't be supervising. Hopefully you'll know where it's going.

    Pippi is always bitching at Barney. Hes either too stupid to notice shes getting agro, or he is the most tolerant dog ever.

    Very occasionally does he snap back. But nothing ever lasts more than about 1 second. Coz he snaps back and she rolls, or he snaps back them looks at us sheepishly.

    The odd time one of those doesnt occur, I yell out "Hey" and it stops immediately.

    They are always together even when I am not home, I am unsure if these happen when I am not home but they cant get too serious or else I would imagine we would have seen some injuries on Pippi by now hahahahahaha

    Hope the lovers sort it out soon!

    Our girls had their first big fight the other day. I gave them bones for dinner the night before and there must have only been 1 left the following morning because somebody had it and the other wanted it (I'm not sure who). Just heard a lot of noise and went outside and Meika had a lot of blood coming from the tip of her ear, totally freaked me out but was only a little cut, just so many blood vessels and it didn't help that she's white! So now when they get bones, I lock them on the balcony (really big and plenty of room for both) so they can't go in the yard/burry them and then I take them away after a few hours so there are no leftovers to fight over!

    Good practice for when you have a second child!

    It happened again yesterday.... over a bone of course. It was strange though when I went out to stop them Harley was just sitting against a wall and Bella was all up in his face. She is definitely the instigator. Luckily he wasn't really doing anything back and all I had to do was yell out "OI" and they stopped, poor Harley looked ashamed and I brought him inside while she stayed out.

    Won't be giving them bones when I am not around now, don't think its a good idea. I left her outside so she could finish hers without Harley hanging around and she didn't touch it once until I put Harley back outside later on.

    SEE there, bitch! Truly scheming critters. I am 2yrs into my first ever bitch dog. Never again for me. Ive owned 4 male rotties, and one female. WHAT A DIFFERENCE!
