I have a very good friend who trains dogs for a living. She told me to be very careful leaving a puppy with a full grown dog. She told me that one well places wack on the back with her paw could break his back. But when we had a play date with a dog the older dogs age, the puppy was in there biting tails and running after them. They ignored him. That was supervised playtime,however.

Until my dog is a full adult, I will never risk him being alone with another dog. Not even a puppy his age. It just isn't worth the risk.

I agree with the others ... and have a question ... how are your adult dogs with your African Grey?

I ask because I too have a grey and my last dog had no issue with her at all, in face they were friends.

However, Kyleigh, at 17 months would gladly chase her around the house in the hopes of catching her ... careful there. I've learned very quickly that my last dog was very special with her relationship with my parrots!

Hi Kyleigh,
Thanks for your reply. We are going to play it one day at a time and closely supervise all the pups.

Our animals are all fabulous with our African grey. They actually ignore her to an extent and when she does get on the floor around us they look at us with the "mum- Maddie's not supposed to be here". They are all gentle with her.
However with the new puppy we will be very closely monitoring them.

I do love that Our grey know all the dogs names mimics there barks, gives them commands and tells them to do stuff at appropriate times. There is certainly never a dull moment with a grey
