As for not wanting to eat the food anymore, if the food dosnt get eaten take it away when the dog is hungry it will for sure eat the food lol
God bless you, I am off the wall trying to keep these two in line but I will try sitting between them, not sure if it will work because I've tried separating them in different rooms. The thing is, I have two very willful dogs..
Tess, the GSD, is getting so big and strong, she doesn't look like a puppy anymore, and although she has been trained, she is still a work in progress.....she doesn't always listen to me, although she is getting better. Maisie, the Cairn Terrier will not back down from anything, I've never seen a little dog with so much courage before. I read that they never back down from a fight, therefore a lot of them will get hurt, and I can totally see this in her....and she's only 3 months old.
Tess is pretty gentle with her but when Maisie jumps up and nips Tess's face, she gets mad and goes after her, but the little devil just keeps coming back for more. Did you have this problem with your shepherd and rotti/mix? If so, did they eventually slow down when they got use to one another. I know it's hasn't been that long for you though.
Thanks for the advice, I really appreciate it!
