I am concerned that I am not giving the best care to my two dogs. As an autistic I "ignore" many cues and am reading as much as I can and spending as much time as I can with them.
My female cattle x is 10 and was with me 7 years before my male cattle x came to live with us. She is top-dog, he defers to her though is always pushing the envelope.
I am training myself to look at her first (he moves the most and movement "calls" me)~ when is it ok though to look and pet him? I walk them separately (her first) and make time to play with them separately~ though when they are together I am not sure how much attention I should not pay him.
I spend the most time petting her, and then will give him a couple of seconds, then return to her, and always end with her.
