Leerburg no longer advocates Alfa Rolling dogs! That's good enough for me! What your seeing is the "change in behaviour" that my GSD went through! Only Breed I have ever experienced that with!
My experience says, that if you don't get this under control you are going to have serious issues!
GSD's have high rank drive if you don't know what that means...then you need to find a qualified and certified trainer! Don't leave the 13 year old around this dog without a muzzle!
Sorry my guy growled at the first guest that came into my house when I got him! That was enough for me, I muzzled his butt around people till I got it under control and I did with a lot of work!
Now you have a problem don't let it become an issue, he's told there is a problem here...he's not gonna write a note!

Any way- she is defiantly trying to reassert herself, any time you have more then one dog in a house these things will occasionally happen. One of your dogs is dominant over the other (with out seeing them or knowing them personally it's hard to say which one that is) but she is maturing emotionally and physically, I'd say its totally normal.

|Cajun||Cajun is well behaved overall and while she tolerates other people and dogs she does not usually give us too much grief though just like any kid will try and get away with whatever she can "every time". She has been submissive with the older dog and was a bit surprised she lashed out at her. However, taking everything into consideration, especially the fact that nothing has changed in her environment, I tend to agree with the combination of age, hormones and butthole teenage stage. Thanks all for your thoughts.|

|harmony||when you put a dog on its back and stand over top it, they will know (fixed or not).|

|Msmaria||She could be having a false pregnancy. My shih tzu went thru it once. We knew she couldnt be pregnant because shes not outside unattended. Or it could just be hormones. Theres a few threads here about having two female dogs. Hopefully someone more experienced will comment as ive never had two females living together.|

|Cajun||Thank you for your thoughts. There is no way she is pregnant. I hear what you are saying about the teenage stages. She is always challenging us as leaders and never wins so maybe she is trying to establish where she fits. Just watching them it makes sense. We will help her with that. We never leave them alone unless they are crated so no worries there. I am not sure spaying will fix that either - my preference is not to spay but we will see what she is like when she is all grown up !! Thank you again.|
