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.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      That ion x does look sweet! Not sure if I can justify the switch from my current ion... what was your out the door cost?

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.
