I have a 10 month old male Labrador and about 2 months ago we got him a playmate from the pound. She is a desexed 1-2yr old German Shepherd x Kelpie.
They get along well together, but whenever it comes time to feeding them, or food in general, she gets REALLY aggressive and attacks my lab. The past few days it has been getting out of hand because my lab is starting to fight back which only provokes her more. They are even starting to draw blood on eachother and obtain 'battle wounds'.
I love my pound puppy, but it isn't fair for my lab to have to put up with this behaviour. He is such a nice, placid dog that wouldn't hurt a fly. I really don't want to get rid of her, but I'm not sure what else to do? I already feed them seperately, but being a lab, he finds things to eat all over the place and I'm not out there watching them 24/7.
I've looked into getting professional dog training, but it is too expensive and I was told it isn't 100%.
Any suggestions as to what I can do?
Please help me...I want to keep BOTH my dogs!
