The new puppy had her first vet visit yesterday and he advised that we dont let the dogs share anything. Food, water, toys, bedding etc. He said that should help with jealousy issues.
When my husband got home from work, he took the first dog out on our gentle leader headcollar thinking that she wouldnt be able to bite with it on and out of the blue she decided to be nice. I cant figure it out, its like she just made up her mind that she was gonna be friendly. She did play with the lil pup and at one point it looked like she was trying to mount her, but I think that was just her expressing her dominance. She really didnt bark or nip at her. We were even able to put them to bed in their crates right next to each other and neither dog complained all night. Amazingly enough we didnt have to get up at all last night to take the pup outside for potty. She didnt cry once. Im wondering if our first dog gave her some sort of security or something.
Well whatever it was Im just glad its over. We will still be attending obedience classes with both dogs just in case.
