Should I intervene?
Question for the experts...
I've had my pup home for two weeks. She's ten weeks old and an extreme high energy pups. We have an nearly three year old male GSD and an eleven year old female lab.
The male GSD has started to take a shepherding, disciplining role with the pup. He warned her away from our labs pillow last night. This evening we had a guest over. The pup was jumping on our guest who said "no, down." Instantly Markus basically grabs the pup and removes her from our guest. Tonight he just
Very loudly barked/growled the pup away from our lab's pillow. It seems he thinks he's in charge of pup discipline and gets upset when the pup breaks the rules. I must say...the pup listens to him! He's never hurt her nor do I think he would. However, I don't want him thinking its his job to keep the pup in line.
Should I intervene or let this work itself out?
