I have a 4 month old german shepherd. I also have a 9 year old black/lab blue healer mut. Our older dog is packed full of energy & really loves playing with our little one. The issues we are having is with our little one. She is obsessed with jumping up & biting/snipping at our bigger dog then does her "big girl" bark. I'm pretty sure it's one of her "playful" barks, & she doesn't do it ALL the time. It's usually just after we let them out of their crates. She also will bark and jump forward at other dogs at the pet stores, now it's NOT EVERY dog at the pet store. She really isn't an aggressive puppy. She loves kids & dogs & loves giving kisses. Part of me thinks she might grow out of this & she is just wanting to play with these other dogs?? I just don't know how to get her to stop barking at the other dogs & deal with her behavior towards our older dog. I also know we need to socialize her more than what we are. Please help with any ideas or suggestions.
