Prey drive taking over playing?
So, some of you may remember my story about taking my lil girl to my mothers house a few weeks ago and her playing kinda hard with my sisters ****zu.
Well we were up there yesterday for the day, and after she calmed down and started playing, the playing got rough. To the point I stood inside the house watching to make sure she didn't try to kill the other dog.
Basically, now or yesterday after doing the normal chasing one another and rolling one another on the ground, she started to constantly go for the ****zu's throat. I even caught her laying to the side on all four legs with her mouth completly around the ****zu's throat while the ****zu tried to get out of it. Finally when he did, being his nutty self he came back to Nuhkia looking to play even more. This holding around the throat seems like a hard core prey drive and at 4 mons old. I'm definately afraid that in another month or so, they'll no longer be able to play together.
Also let it be known, that at times when she would get a grip on him she would thrash her head side to side, she definately took alot of hair off him. However he never onced yelped and constantly kept coming back for more.
