As you all know I have a 100lbs Rottweiler and a 4lbs Pomeranian. They are best friends eat from the same bowl, sleep together & give each other kisses when they see each other. But at play time my little one "Bella" trys so hard to play with the big boy toys and every time she gets it here comes "Raider" & she drops it and barks. Then when I just try to play with her he gets very sad and butts in and takes the toy away. I only have toys for big dogs because he will eat the little toys & I don't want that to happen. I don't think it is fare that she dose not have any toys her size but what do I do when the other dog could be in danger. I guess what I am asking is who do you play with 2 dogs that are so different? Dose anyone have a pair like mine and do you think she is happy just nipping at his hills at play time? What do you think.
I have a GSD and 2 chihuahua's and one chi is 3.8lbs so I can relate! My chi's do have their own toys and if the GSD wants to play with them he has to be very gentle. Amazingly he is and he knows his toys from theirs. Sometimes he does ruin one and will come to us all sad knowing we will not be pleased. I really did not have to train him he knows that they toys are not his. I would get your baby some toys the small dog does need toys.
I have 2 80lb labs and a 6 lb yorkie poo. Harley has his special toys and the labs have theirs.
We have indoor and outdoor toys (does anyone else do this?)
We pick up Harley's outdoor toys immediatley after he's done playing with them. My labs mainly stay outdoors.
My labs like to put one of Harleys toys in their mouth, then lay down on the ground and tease harley into trying to pull them out from their mouths... or they drop them in front of Harley and pick it up real quick and run, then Harley runs right behind like a game of tag.
Hello, I have a 5 month old cocker spaniel and a 1 1/2 year old pit bull. For the most part when they play together they don't even play with the toys. They would rather chase each other and jump all over each other. Usually when my pit bull grabs a toy to play with my cocker spaniel gets upset and tries to take it from her so that the pit bull can chase him. They're so weird.
i would get some small toys and bring them out keeping the rottie somewhere else, then put the small toys away after a play time. i have a lab and a pug, and my lab usually doesn't bother the pug's toys. i don't have the small toys in the kitchen when they are gated in there together when i am gone, i'm always able to supervise when the small toys are in the lab's reach.
