So, i have had this happen and i find using a muzzle is the best tool. Just until you are sure zena will not hurt him, it may take a few days, walk them all together and make sure the little newbie knows his place in YOUR pack, be a leader. I have used a muzzle as a tool for situations that could get sticky, and it took about a week before my big goof (the one wearing the muzzle) accepted and moved on. I am not talking the nylon muzzle that fully keeps the mouth clamped i am talking about the roomy face mask that allows for the mouth to be open to a point, my dog to freely pant and drink water.
