Hey guys! Just looking to see if anyone has some suggestions or if they could tell me if this behavior is normal. Thanks. We have a male 1 1/2 year old GS and we currently just got a female GS about 16 weeks old. They are adjusting to each other pretty well, you can tell our little man is a little mad shes around, but we dont show favoritism. However Allie, the pup, has alot more energy then Batista, our older dog. They run around like crazy and do the playing thing however lately it seems like Allie is just getting a little carried away, she attacks his legs and ears she even gave him a big scratch/gash in his foreheard today either with a tooth or claw. Other times he gets carried away and clamps his mouth around her neck. Its all pretty new as we've only had her about 3 weeks or so and our little guy was never as hyper as she is...do you guys think we should just hang in there and they will both just calm down and adjust completley eventually? Does anyone have a estimated time frame of how long it may take. Also, when my daughter or I are watching the dogs, they are really good. We stress calmness in the house and are very big on disciplining. We even take them out seperatly most of the time because they tend to get carried away. However if we go out and my husband watches them its like all **** has broke loose lol. They are his babies and he lets them get away with everything, and Im pretty sure theres probably no discipline at all when we are not around. I think we should all be on the same page as far as discipline, dont you? It might calm things down sooner. If anyone with more then 1 dog could help me with some suggestions or just tell me their stories it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you everyone!
