PostSubject: friend's dogs behaviour   Fri 08 Jul 2011, 9:51 pm

We had indie round at my friends last night who has two minature jack russels aged 3months and 5 months. I don't like how her dogs (one male one bitch) jump all over indie as I don't want her to play like that, how do I tell her without upsetting her?

The behaviour is only in the house!

Had diesel and lola out with them today (kai was in the vets and indie needs 2nd jag) and they were totally fine.

I have my reasons for not allowing the wild play as kai was allowed to do this as a pup and trying to teach him manners was a nightmare as he thought it was ok to play wild.

When we got Maizie our friends got 2 JRT crosses about 2 weeks later. We let them play wild rough & tumble etc and at 5 months ended up having to break up a serious puppy fight between Maizie and one of the JRTs. Because they were all pups with no mature influence ( including us humans )they went too far and took liberties with each other.

We all learnt a lesson and stopped it straightaway. But the damage was done and they were never the same after that and it has stayed with them despite continual socialising.

Don't feel bad telling your friend that you don't want this rough play - we learnt the hard way that " free" puppy playing isn't aways good. they don't always recognise boundaries.

all good advice, you can't expect puppies to raise themselves into nice social animals, they need at least one experienced influence be it a dog or a human (preferably the person responsible for the dog!).

I know from first hand what it's like to have a dog who has no dog social graces, so tell her otherwise it's not fair on your dog, play gets too out of hand.
