How jealous is your Male/female GSD?

My boys seem to be fine. My girls are have a big green monster within them. Arwen and Jenna seem particularly afflicted, and will carry on like I am sticking them with a red-hot poker. Are your boys or girls more likely to be jealous?

Re: How jealous is your Male/female GSD?

I don't have any boys, but my girls do get jealous over me, they "think" they need all my attention and cannot be shared at times, they're not violent or bitting, but they do let out a bark, or a growl, even sometimes they will whimper.

Re: How jealous is your Male/female GSD?

Oh they're both jealous of each other. Fortunately since Frigga was spayed it's gotten much, much better. No nastiness but she likes to squirm inbetween me and Odin when Odin is getting his turn of affection. He's much more laid back than she is but his patience does have its limits. When he's had enough of her showboating he rams himself up close to me and being twice her size blocks her quite effectively.

Re: How jealous is your Male/female GSD?

My Cody is very jealous of me..I cannot touch another dog without him trying to interfere. He cannot stand seeing me give another dog affection or attention. We are working on stopping this behaviour and he has gotten better. I always correct him for acting that way.

When I take Yukon to the dog park and another dog comes to me for petting, Yukon will run over and start whining and barking.

I hope to get Yukon a little buddy in the near future so I'm working on stopping his jealous behavior around other dogs.

Re: How jealous is your Male/female GSD?

Getting Arwen spayed did not help AT ALL. Perhaps it is a little bit worse, now. Ah well, it wasn't the reason I got her spayed, I wouldn't have minded it at a bonus though.

Re: How jealous is your Male/female GSD?

I've only had one super-serious issue with jealous dogs. Slider HATES Mac.

Once I discovered that toys were the trigger for fights, I was able to stop them as long as certain rules are closely followed:
1. Mac and Slider are NOT allowed to play with any toy in the house (where they run free together while I'm home).
2. Outdoors, Slider is in a pen while Mac is in the big yard, then Mac's put in the house so Slider and Bruiser can go into the big yard to run around and play.


Slider's evil spawn has picked up on his father's jealousy and also dislikes Mac, BUT is not aggressive with him.

Re: How jealous is your Male/female GSD?

I am not allowed to interact with any non-approved dogs. We have stopped going to the dog park for this very reason. Once a Labrador had the gall to jump on me and Ozzy went ballistic.

I think he resource guards me. I don't know if that is jealousy or possesiveness.

Re: How jealous is your Male/female GSD?

My male GSD "jack" who's the only full GSD is out numbered by the "ladies" so he for the most part waits his turn to be with me.
My GSD/Dingo mix "Ghost" is VERY jealous, any time I pet one of the others she has to nudge her way right in & then proceed to block them with her body--so that she's the only one within reach for me to pet, until she gets bored with it & moves on. My hubby says "Jealousy!" everytime we see her get up to make that move.
