If you have more than 1 dog, I could really use some help.

Posted by   + Show Post

We have a male 18 pound terrier.  DD (visiting) has 20 pound female Corgi. DS (visiting) has 75 pound female (lab/pit mix).  The famales HATE each other. This holiday is becoming a disaster, we have 1 or both crated in different rooms all the time.  It appears to be the Corgi instigating (out of fear, we think) just barks and lunges. The lab/pit is is trying to ignore the situation but is getting so stressed, she just paces. 

Is there anyway to get these 2 dogs to get along?  My male dog gets along with both with no problems.

Watch the corgi, when she shows intent to act (before she acts) snap her out of it by grabbing her attention and redirecting it. If that doesn't work the leash the corgi to you and when she starts acting up, jerk the leash enough get her attention, but not enough to hurt her.

In a nut shell, the corgi has behavioural issues. It needs to be socialized, and trained. It also sounds like its spoiled. Is it treated like a princess? That will always give a dog a complex. A dog is a dog, not a person not a baby.

Bigger dogs are more mellow, it takes time. I have my kids Grandma move in few months ago & I have very mellow Rottweiler & she has a very hipper aggressive German shepherd & it took about 2months to get along. Never separate them. He's still very damanant tho,but my rotti now ignores him
