Ok here we go again. Lizzy is standing up for herself which means she feel secure I hope but…. My question is how do you know when things are getting out of hand? At this point when I get them to stop I order them both to their crates and let them cool off 5 or 10 min. Is this the right thing to do. They dont seem to be biting down it still seems to be all show and sound but how do you know when it is getting serious? They still play together and sleep together. Tonight it was prompted by treats. Do a trick get a treat. Lizzy wouldnt back off so zoe could get hers and zoe told her to get out of her face and they got into it. Do I need to crate one while I work with the other or work more on manners for awhile with Lizzy so she waits her turn.
I have actually been trying this but she is very food motivated and just wont back off.
