I think at this age, it's a lot less about asserting dominance and a lot more about exploring (and pushing) boundaries socially. She may not do it to the other one because they don't tolerate it. Some dogs will be MUCH more tolerant of a puppy (including of rude behavior) than others, and those "fine, I'll deal with it" vs. "don't even think about it" cues aren't always obvious. Correct and redirect and she'll get the picture.

|MrsFergione||Okay that's what I've been doing. Just telling her no and moving her to a new area. I wonder why she doesn't do it to the other one!|

Starting to assert dominance
Our german shepherd puppy is 17 weeks now and she is starting to show dominance over one of our other dogs. Our other two dogs are chiweenie sisters who are 2 1/2. She's only doing it to one of them, she stands over her, just how she is standing but on top since she's much taller lol Is there anything I can do to discourage this? My other dog is NOT happy about this, but it's weird she is not doing it to the other one at all.
