Wanted to ask if anyone has had any issues with their Aussie being aggressive and bullying the other dog in the house. I have brother sister pair and the female just runs at him and is really rough. I separate them and no sooner she is at him again. She doesn't hurt him but the growling and running is so annoying. He loves her but sometimes he runs to me and hides from her. Is there anything I do to make her stop this behavior?
I have the same thing happen with my Aussie..she is about a year and a half old. Really rough with our other male aussies where she'll tug on their necks and tackle them. They play along back but sheesh...They get rough out in the yard. I would love to find an answer to this as well.
I have two Aussie about a year old and they are sisters from the same litter. I also experience the same issues of bullying. When I spoke to my breader about this she said I need to dominate them. What you need to try and do is flip them on their back. Not hard and you need it to be controlled but you flip them on their back and say in a firm voice that is not ok. You shame them while they are on their back (I can't believe you did that, how could you think that was ok, or how could you be so naughty) and keep them on their back until they relax and their butt isn't tense. First time it took my girls a couple of minutes now it only takes a couple of seconds but it will show them you are Alfa and you say what is ok and not ok. Hope this helps!
