So, our new pup, now 12 weeks, loves to play with our older dog, and vice versa. Its so nice to see our old rescue FINALLY play like a dog! Heartwarming..
However, the little one is relentless. Non stop. AT her continually. And she has been SO good. She keeps rolling him, gentle pins, gentle growls, tail is always going.
But, he never stops. He takes her bones and toys, and no matter how much she keeps disciplining him (maybe not strong enough?) he just is non stop.
He will escalate to where he is doing the crazy blind run around the house thing. Its usually at this point that I step in and scoop him up. He almost always immediately, or at least in a minute or two, settles right down and snoozes.
He will go in his crate fine and stay in there for anywhere up to 3 hours (usually only as much as 2)..
He also seems to want to be touching me or my other dog almost all the time.
Are these bad signs? Should he be expected to stop the madness earlier? Is the fact that my older dog isn't stronger with him going to cause problems down the road?
