    I've heard the same thing. They seem ok together except he wont leave her neck alone and I think it's still pretty sore.

    Shadow and spot hated each other and at times nearly ripped each other apart. I did try and keep one in, one out as much as possible and I learned to patch up their wounds. The hose became my friend when they were at each other for about 6 months. Unfortunately soon after, spot was accidentally run over so I did not have the time to see how that relationship would have progressed so can not offer much advice except the usual separation etc.

    Any posts made under the name of Di_dee1 one can be used by anyone as I do not give a rats.

    Maybe put a correction collar and lead on him and correct him every time he tries to lick it? That way Madeleine will know you're in charge of the situation and she won't feel the need to defend herself.

    I dont have a correction collar that will fit him.
    He stops and comes away from her when I tell him no and I'm not letting them together without me being there. She seems relaxed when I'm around.

    I think I'm feeling a bit better about it today. I'm hoping when she's not feeling so sore they'll be ok.

    Separate them if you're worried. Not worth the stress and potential danger

    I had this problem with a shar pei and a rotti, would cause all sorts of dramas and vet bills
    I had Nekhbet from DOL come in and do some training, now the two of them can share a bone and not kill each other
    I would contact her

    Sounds like your boy is doing all the right groveling moves, licking around face etc. Also sounds like he is reaching his sexual maturity??

    If the dogs have had a squabble I like to separate until they have calmed down and then reintroduce them while on a walk.

    I find with dogs that like a walk the focus is off each other and on taking in the environment and let them both off lead again and put them together when home.

    If however it continues too much you might like to get someone in to observe and get their opinion.

    This is also how I introduce adult dogs into our home. Via the walk system. When I have friends come and stay after a dog show we walk all the dogs together just for about 15 minutes then they seem to be able to come into the yard and all run together without much problem. We will have Ridgebacks and Whippets together all entire males and females. The walk is the trick I think.

    Would not definatly recommend Julie, I couldnt have asked for better results, took alot of work on my behalf, but once she had laid downt he ground work, the rest was easy.

    I had two dogs that needed vet visits after a bird died in our yard, this week they found an old peice of bone, one had a chew, the other had a chew and so on until it was gone, they both laid around relaxed waiting their turn, was fantastic to see..

    Mind you I am not at the stage of throwing out a fresh bone and seeing what happens lol, but I am please with the process we have
