I have currently taken on a 10 month old great dane foster dog.
Bit of background: Female, desexed (a week ago), 10 months old, little else is known of her background.
She is currently resource guarding myself and my partner against our 2 dogs. We own a 2.5 yo desexed female RR and a 3.5 yo mutt (lab x staffy) desexed male.
We are currently ignoring her and using the NILIF techniques as we have with our own dogs. When she growls/lifts the lip/or snaps at our dogs, we growl at her but continue patting our own dogs. Are we doing the right thing?
Our own dogs are very confident dogs with Brembo (the mutt) being our alpha male. Luna (the dane) is submissive with people and has shown submission whilst playing with the dogs. She is in no way aggressive/dominant with them when playing but only when my partner or myself show attention to them.
Any advice would be appreciated.
