Clawing at our hand, biting, jumping, barking, howling... I'm not really sure how to teach her.
Also, we bring our new pup to my parents often who have a dog of their own. Their dog is a 9 year old lab, who is normally friendly. With the puppy she growls and walks away. Is this the dogs communicating to establish dominance? We have keeping them apart, but they do need to learn to be around each other at some point. But I am worried that my parents dog will get to the point of annoyance with the puppy that she may lash out and hurt her. Any thoughts?
Your parents dog may be teaching your pup to back off. If you parents dog is growling and walking away he is trying to teach your pup manners. It is what the mother dog or other pups would do if your pup was misbehaving in the litter. I would let your parents dog handle if if it does not get aggressive.
