|trcy||I allowed for corrections...absolutely. I did not allow bullying at all. There is a difference.|

Keef is more likely to yield to Halo than the other way around, but even she knows not to try and take away a prized treat like a bully stick. She tends to want whatever he has, even if there's a virtually identical one nearby (like Nylabones or Orbee balls), but she'll wait until his attention is momentarily diverted to snatch it away, or she'll try to trick him into walking away from it, the little snot!

Sounds like my house with the boys...Jr being a ylw lab(alias: hoover)will wait for the right moment to snatch Quince's whatever...but would never attempt a bullystick

|GSDElsa||Not in my house. Elsa wants to be the ultimate regulator and she takes it way too far. She has no sense of doggie manners herself.|

We haev two females. 9yrs and 3yrs. When Kana was little, Paison was quite the disciplinarian. Never bit, but would make sure Kana knew she was not suppose to chew the shoes, chew the plants, eat others food etc. Now Kana is dominant, but they never get crossed. As for other times, I don't like it when Paison won't let me drink from the toilet and Kana is always making me go outside to watch her poop.

Sinister corrects the cats, I love that and he is much more effective than me correcting them. When he hears them being naughty (cat fight, clawing furniture, clawing the wall, making a noise that sounds like they are destroying something) he will get up and go over there and either bark if they are on a counter or a higher place, he will karate chop them with his paw or he will go put his mouth over their head. The mouth over the head method is the most effective, the cats always end up with a very wet head. He never hurts them and I know he never will, 2 of them are his best friends and they are the 2 that are the naughtiest!
Sinister only corrects dogs when they get too close to him when he is eating. He doesn't snap at them or growl he just yells and moans.
My friend and her dogs are living with me, her female ACD mix, Rue, is a real B! I do not allow her to correct my dog because he isn't doing anything wrong when she does it. It's more like she is just being bossy and rude. When he comes to greet me when I get home she snaps at his face and won't let him come to me. I HATE that, he is my dog, not you! I correct her right away and send her to her bed. She does this whenever he comes to me or to my friend, it is worse when she is by my roommate and he comes over to get attention from her, she growls, shows her teeth and then snaps at him. She also guards her food dish so that no other animal can come into the room. She also goes after my roommate's other dog. She redirects her frustration on which ever dog is closest to her.

|gsdraven||I do think dogs learn boundaries with other dogs better when the other dog sets them. As long as the correction is appropriate and the other dog listens, I don't see anything wrong with allowing it but also monitoring so things don't escalate.|

Jax definitely likes to police everything! I do have to keep on top of her and not let her run the show but in this case I let her get away with it.
And what upsets me the most about this is Jax had never been aggressive about her food but this was a concern for me because of Chaos's behavior. I was concerned that her constantly having her nose where others are eating would cause food aggression. So hoping this correction ends this.
