Tartar 92BG buildup a separate file nica a other polish any commonalities or patterns can be identified. I wouldn't be surprised if you did indeed find a commonality between the different incidents. Hopefully you do, because that help you understand how to manage the dogs' environment to prevent future incidents from occurring and to determine if you need assistance the form of a behaviour modification strategy. Thanks for this info. The aggressive dog is daughter's and I have asked her to get her to the vet, to first determine is any health issues, this is the works. We have reviewed when the incidents happened, and it appears to be related to resource guarding. Such as the older one was a special spot, around us humans, and felt that the younger one was trying to move into her spot. We are now more careful about watching for body language when the younger one seems to move closer to the older one. There is no reason to doubt your experience as to how your female dogs get along. Please remember however, that just like humans, each and every dog is individual, separate and unique from any other. The relationship between your dogs is how these two particular individuals relate to each other, but your personal experience does not disprove the accepted theory of how female dogs relate to each other generally recognizing, of course, that there are exceptions to every rule. Scientific evidence compiled from years of observation, study, and analysis are what distinguish between anecdotal evidence and proven theory. One thing most people fail to understand, by the way, is the meaning of the word theory, which I believe has caused quite a bit of confusion no matter what the topic under discussion be. A theory is not just idea or mere speculation, which is how most people think of the term, but is fact a coherent group of tested propositions commonly regarded as correct that can be used as principles of explanation and prediction for a class of phenomena. A principle, law, or doctrine, such as the Law of Gravity or the Law of Cause and Effect are examples that demonstrate what is meant by theory. It can, and has been, tested and replicated under controlled conditions, meaning it can be relied upon to be true the majority of cases. I think it's great that yor female dogs get along well, and I've seen a few such cases myself, but I've seen more situations where it was extremely tense and volatile situation that the average dog owner guardian opinion is not equipped to handle. One further thing comes to mind on this subject is the attitude, demeanor, and expectations of the dog owner have more than a little to do with how a group get along with one another. State of mind is the only area which I agree completely with and if you think about it, it makes perfect sense. A nervous owner transmit that emotional energy to the dog, and as has often pointed out, nervousness or fearfulness are what drive much of the behavior dogs that is problematic. I agree with Debbie. I have 2 sisters, a brother and their mom. About every 3rd or 4th night one of the girls start growling when their mom or siblings try to get up and if I dont intervene we have a fight. I just place them on the floor and by the time they get back up they are no longer growling. How does being at the same 'hierarchy level' equate to the dog being dominant over us? You literally just said they're at the same level. If I'm control of the resource and I'm iving it to the dog, as per your example, then I'm tautologically control. I would define what the dog is eating if the dog is trying to eat food, that's a behaviour I 't want the dog to practice However, I do reward dogs from the table, meaning both that I'll give them something while I'm sitting at the table, or I get up from the table, go to dog, and deliver the edible item. I do this when dogs are good, and when they're engaged behaviour I want to have repeated. mind, the real issues with 'dominance' tend to occur when there isn't permission being sought or given from the person or the dog. It's all about the relationship, and it's all how we define the terms, if 'dominance' is defined as something like 'contest between members of the same species over resources,' then I'd need to find a new term. If dogs are trying to take meal, especially after being told either to leave it, or do something to me that's rude pushy behaviour. I 't think the dog is necessarily being 'dominant' at that point, but it could
