      I do think he's just giving all us animal lovers a bad time Don probably has a farm or like in my case a starter farm at home.

      I just aquired a new puppy. Pit/Lab and she is adorable. named her jennifer. she just wandered in the grocery store and my boss actually let me take her home. My daughters Lab/service dog was not to pleased when my daughter handed the new puppy a piece of ham. The fight was on and i got bit in the process. I get worried when i see the service dog pace in between the puppy and my daughter. Any ideas on a peacful solution?

        ftrphxcop,
        Give both ham and the older dog a bigger piece!!!
        I had the same problem with my cats! I had to remember to always feed the older one first or at least put his food down first. They get really hurt when a new animal comes into the home. Much like us humans!!!

        What do you think if I put my signature as ,
        "I love defenseless men, especially in a good gravy!!"

          You must establish the dominant dog first. It should be the service dog since he was there first. He should always be fed first, given treats first, etc. It's not easy! I did this with my Yorkies. The female was the established dog so she became the dominant. My husband would hold the male until I put her food down. When she started to eat, he'd put the male down to eat. The dominant female fought this, of course. She would stop eating and charge him but I would say, NO" and slap her nose. Thereby, the BOTH knew I was the ultimate domiant, she was the dominant (since she got fed first) and he was not dominant.
          It took awhile and even now he will try to steal a piece of her food but backs off quickly when she growls.
          The service dog should be the donimant and he is real insecure right now. He must be shown he is dominant and every bit as loved as ever. My female always slept on the bed with me. The male either slept with my son or in a crate, depending on how bullheaded he was. He wanted to be the dominant and had to be taught he wasn't. If I give treats, she gets hers first and THEN, he gets his. Everything I do for them, she's first. And the whole family must treat the service dog as dominant such as petting him first when they enter a room, then the new pup, etc.

            The service dog does not recieve treats or any type of food that is not dog food. This is to prevent a person from luring the animal away from my daughter or poisoning by a person who does not prefer animals. She is completely deaf and should someone do this it would mean immpending harm. The animal is trained with toys and a clicker.

            I really thought if i just put them in the yard alone together they would learn to get along. So far it is ok until my daughter is in the room. Then the growling starts again.

            I don't want to give her away but i see no other choice.

            WW, I like it.

              Sorry,ftrphxcop,
              I can tell you almost anything about cats or pet dogs but I have no expertise in the situation you have further described! Maybe someone else does!

              P.S. I saw your WW comment after the fact! I wouldn't have the heart to do it though! They might confuse that with being vulnerable! (and to some thats still an attraction!!)

                Well, it's obvious the service dog is very protective of your daughter and probably always will be where this dog is concerned because her training has taught her to be so. Maybe you could call where the service dog came from and get some advice. I'm sure other people have service dogs and other pets.

                  Seems logical to me. Any man who is defenseless deserves to be in the gravey!
