Canine Rivalry. Dog Jealousy

Go to Index

Dogs also feel emotions. Canine Rivalry and jealousy are easier to find in dogs of the same gender, size, temperament and age. They can fight over bones, places to sleep or the master's attention.
ADVICE 429
Dogs can not share covetable objects, so each dog should have its own bed and food bowl, even if it has the share the water bowl. In some dominant breeds such as the Doberman, there is more rivalry among bothers and sisters than in other breeds.
ADVICE 430
Between two male dogs that live together, it is necessary to castrate the weakest one to increase the difference between them.
DISPUTES FOR POSITIONS
ADVICE 431
The objects that provoke most of the fights among partners of litter are bones. Avoid possible problems by not giving any bone, or giving them in separate rooms.
ADVICE 432
It doesn't matter how many bones you give the dogs, a dog will always want the bone of the other dog.
AVOID VISUAL CONTACT
Reduce their rivalry feeding them at the same time, but trying to place them in opposite directions.
ADVICE 433
Each dog should know it would receive a food reward if it eats next to the other dog without fighting. Give its food bowl to the dominant one first.
MUTUAL REWARDS
ADVICE 434
If the dogs have a similar personality and it is not clear which is the dominant one, give them both an order and reward them at the same time. They will learn to obey in the presence of the other.
CONGRATULATE THE DOMINANT ONE FIRST
In the canine world there is no concept of democracy. If the dogs show you which one is the boss, you will have to recognize this hierarchy by congratulating the dominant one first and then the others. This will make the dominant one not to exercise its authority too much.
JEALOUSY
THE PRESENTATION OF THE PUPPY
Even when the majority of the dogs end up accepting another dog at home, there can be some jealousy at first. Reduce the problems by incorporating the new one to the routine of the other dog.
ADVICE 435
Give all the possible attention to the oldest dog in the presence of the newly arrived; the dog will soon associate the puppy with pleasant activities.
KIND LACK OF ATTENTION
When the puppy is absent, don't pay attention to the oldest one. In this way, the old dog will learn to associate the presence of the puppy with more attention from you.
ALLOW IT TO BREATH
ADVICE 436
Puppies can be fun but also exasperating. The old dog can end up tired of the constant noise of the young one. Place a fence so the old dog can run away from the puppy.
