Hello. I recently adopted a medium, short haired hound mix and I also own 2 miniature pinschers. My hound mix'es name is Daisy and she is so nice and polite to company & other dogs especially my 2 miniature pinschers. The problems that I'm facing right now is that my 2 mini pins don't really like her. Daisy wants to be polite and show respect towards my other dogs, but she can't really be nice to them when they are barkign at her and snapping. It's not bad snapping, snapping like a warning kind of. I'm not really sure...can anybody give me any advice 4 this problem.
I've watched a lot about this on how you can slowly make them accept her as a member of the "pack". It takes a while and a lot of effort on your part.
It's best to do this outside, on a wide area since it's a neutral area and requires 2 people at least and it's best to train them one by one.
What you do is, every time your 2 old dogs sees Daisy, and I mean actually look at her, and not bark or get aggressive, give them a treat. It has to be the best or at least one of a kind treat. This treat ONLY appears whenever Daisy is around. Make sure you capture their attention as soon as they look at her and then give them the treat. Don't give them any if they bark at her or get aggressive towards her. Only give it to them if they look at her and they don't bark or show aggressiveness.
That way, they will associate Daisy with a good thing. That whenever they see her, and don't snap at her, they will get a really good treat. It's best to do one at a time with your 2 dogs. Make sure Daisy and one of the dog you're training are from at a far enough distance that they don't start barking right away. Slowly bring them nearer if your old dogs don't bark. Keep feeding them the special treat whenever they see her and don't bark. Keep bringing them nearer and nearer until they are close enough.
Another thing you can do also is butt sniffing. Walk around in a circle with Daisy being walked by another in front of you bring one of your 2 dogs near her butt ONLY near enough to sniff at her butt while you're walking in a circle. Dogs sniff each other's butts as a sign of meeting and to know some information about the other dog.
There are other ways I've seen but these 2 seems to work based on the programs I watch on TV on training dog behavior. As someone said, look online and you should see lots more.
