Hi everyone! I am looking for some advice. Cricket and Clover seem to like each other. They play "fight" ALL the time when they are together. I let it go in the beginning, thinking that they would get it out of their system, and settle down together. Well....we have had Clover for over 2 months, and they STILL do it. They chase each other around, play bow, rear up on their hind legs and "box", nip at each other, pull on ears and tails, etc. The puppy of course is the one instigating most of it, and is always trying to jump on Cricket, like she is mounting her. Cricket is no angel either though, and will pull on the puppy's ear, etc. Everything I read said that it is normal when introducing dogs, and that they will sort out amongst themselves who the "boss" is. Cricket does put Clover in her place, but Clover is relentless and doesn't ever back down. She just keeps instigating her. It's ok when they are outside running around, but they do this in the house, and it is annoying and dangerous when the little one is walking about. The dogs listen to me seperately, but when they are together, it's like they totally tune me out, and get overly excited. We have to put gates up and keep them apart for times during the day, just so we get some peace! I'm not really sure how I should handle this behavior. Should they both get reprimanded for play-fighting? They are obviously playing, and not hurting each other. How can I stop them from playing in the house, without essentially keeping them away from each other? I want them to get used to each other, and be able to coexist in the same room calmly. Clover has gotten alot better with jumping on people, and hardly does it anymore. She is getting alot better with potty-training, and listening to me when we are one on one. She just totally loses focus when Cricket is around her. Any advice?
