Dozer is ruining Scooter's life...
at least that how I feel and I feel really bad.
Scooter loves to play with Dozer BUT Scooter doesn't get to play anymore.
Scoot used to LOVE to play fetch with his little stuffed toys. He would grab one and come howling at me with the toy in his mouth in a play bow wiggling all over...until I got Dozer. It was the cutest thing ever and I feel like I have ruined it for Scoot. Dozer tackles him all the time and rips the toys right out of Scooter's mouth and 65lbs vs. 17lbs; Scoot loses, then Dozer rips his favorite toys up. I have to hide all of Scooter's toys (and I mean the 2 he has left). Scooter now will run for a toy, see Dozer and drop his toy and run.
I feel bad because I just want Scoot to be able to play like he has for the past 5 years. I have tried holding Dozer's collar so Scoot can play fetch but I can't even hold him. I have put Dozer in his crate and he throws a FIT!!!!!! Dozer will even get a little nasty trying to get the toy away from Scooter. I have even tried to throw the toy so Scoot can fetch it while I hold Doze, than I switch so they can take turns. Scooter does fine, Dozer just takes the toy and runs.
I know he is a puppy but Scooter should still be able to play the way he has for 5 years. Any ideas on how I can let Scooter get his play time in without the big bully, lol...
