New pup? and help.

4 posts in this topic

We have a new 10 week old female Brittany (which we have had for 3 weeks)and we also have a 2 1/2 yr female gsp, these two are in separate side by side outdoor kennels during the day and we bring them in the house after supper for the evening. The problem here is the new pup is very aggressive as she bites, growls and barks at the gsp all evening till we separate them for bed time. Not sure if this adds to the problem but when these 2 are out in the yard together the gsp runs circles around the pup and she gets to chasing and barking in frustration. Our gsp is young and prbly enjoys the playing but it sure seems to me like the pup is getting out of control? thanks

Hard to tell without seeing the dogs if the pup is playing, or actually aggressive. I would watch it close because a 10 week old pup shouldn't overly aggressive towards other dogs.

If you watch a litter of pups when they are all together you can usually pick out one or two that are more dominate and aggressive than the rest of the litter. Maybe your pup was the dominate in the litter. Your older dog will let the pup know when its had enough.

I have a 10 month old Britt and he is quite the talker. He is always barking or making whatever noises he can when he plays. Even when he plays with me or my 5 year old. I was worried at first, then realized he was just having fun, and not being aggressive. Hopefullly that is the case with your pup. Hope all goes well. Enjoy the pup grin.gif

I have a 3 1/2 year old and a 2 year old britt. Ever since

they met, they have ran played aggressively together. They

run full speed around the yard, biting and rolling around on

the ground. Not mean spirited, just friendly nipping to get

the other one going. Both are good with other dogs and the neighborhood children. Keeps them in good hunting condition

too with all the running around also. They are in the kennel all day long side by side and go nuts when I let them out when I come home. They seem to enjoy each other.

I wouldn't worry about it.

      Things have become pretty hit or miss for my house out there.  I fished last week from Tuesday through Sunday; alas, school started yesterday so it's back to the real world for now.  During afternoon primetime, I caught between zero fish (yes, I got skunked one night) and 12.  Daybite was very tough (mainly because I quit fishing and either went hiking over at Kathio, tip-up fishing in the bays, or went down and looked at guns at Boone's), but the reports I heard from those fishing hard during the day made that decision fairly easy.     The overnight bite was pretty steady, with multiple fish each night coming on the rattle reels.  I pulled the lines twice because I got sick of catching 15-17'' walleyes.    Sunrise was also hit or miss.    All in all, it's not early ice anymore, that's for sure.  I'm still fishing fairly shallow, and it might be time to move the house.  Biggest fish all weekend was just under 28''.  I still have only one keeper in my current location despite catching well over 100 walleyes there in the last few weeks.  The last week or so was pretty strange...at least two nights either me or my friend caught more than 10 fish while the other guy, fishing less than 15 yards away, caught very few.  Why the fish can be loaded in one spot and non-existent a few feet away, and then switch the next night so the "hot" house goes cold, is a mystery to this fisherman. Maybe they swim counter-clockwise around the lake one night and then turn around and swim clockwise the next?

      I dont have any experience with this, but as i was reading response about dog needing the surgery on its other knee after. I wont if it is like a athlete, where they come back from an ACL and tear the other because favoring it so much? Just thinking out loud basically

      These stats have a lot to do with it!  GF=138 GA=92 One of the highest and lowest in the NHL as of today that is huge.

      Thanks for the report!  How big were the walleyes?  Keepers? Care to share your tactics?  Time of day, how deep you were fishing, type of bait?  I'm new to metro walleye fishing and trying to hone my skills a bit.
