    Default Am I doing the right thing?

    Okay...so I brought home our new bully baby, Angel, last Thursday, and my girls are still arguing like cats and dogs! They do really good when we're out on a little trip (We've been to Lowe's, petsmart, my mom's, and to see 'dad' at work). As soon as we're back home its Katy bar the doors! They're back at it again! I'll let them play until it starts getting serious, then I'll break them up, they get the no bad dog, and Penny gets the no sign (mean eyes, and finger shake), and one of them will go into time out depending on who hurt who.
    They both seem to want to be together! They eat out of the same bowl, share water, treats, they won't sleep unless they can lay like a dog pile (usually on me somewhere), and they both give each other kisses for a few sessions a day on the head, feet, etc. When they're being nice to each other they both get tons of loves, and usually a treat for good behavior.
    Are there other things I should be doing? I've never introduced dogs to each other, and I don't want to be the reason they're fighting so much

    I think they will work it out. Just keep on top of reprimanding them when they act out toward one another. I think I would put them both in time out though so you don't create a jealousy between them.

    Unfortunately it is in the Bully nature to play aggressively they will figure it out sounds like they love and care for each other and that is 90%of the battle.
    You are doing great keep it up

    Here they are sleeping earlier today. When it's time for a nap they're ready for some mommy loves, and cuddles with each other.
    I've tried substituting a toy to chew on for each other, too, but it's just so much more fun to try to eat each other than a bone or toy.
    Thank you for the advice! I'll try putting them both in timeout in seperate rooms to see if that helps. It's so mentally exhausting to think your babies hate each other, and a big reason we got Angel was to help Penny, since she's deaf.

    Pups will play and play hard, you are doing right by braking them up when they get too rough, just keep doing it, they will learn.

    Oh my goodness, they are so cute together!!! I say keep doing what you are doing and eventually they will work it out…

    you are on the right track... stay consistent on the corrections and as Rosalie stated,,, they should both get time out when something happens.
