    to EBN..... she is trying to be alpha and own the house/rule the pack.

    She is adorable, and unfortunately this can be normal behavior for bullies!!! Christine has given you some great advice… persistence is key. Good luck!!!

    Welcome and you have a beautiful baby. Mine tries to dominate by standing pretty much on top of the other dog with his head held up. He even stands over or on top of them. It took us a while to understand he was trying to dominate. He growls at me to play, not at the others but I have had to teach him not to bully or bother the others. No is the popular word and hush. Also no sir. Also persistence is key. Canelo is my first bully and he can be stubborn and strong willed but persistence pays off.

    Hello,
    In nature, the Alpha order is part of nature. We don't allow this type of behavior in our houses and animals. But it does exist. Co-existence is the moderation. Correcting behavior is not punishment, but rather positive reinforcement the opposite of unwanted behaviors. Re-directing attention along with the "nothing in life is free" can solve any problem with enough time. How much is enough? When it is done and resolved, that was how much time it took. How much time and energy did YOU put into the process to change? You need to be the ALPHA leader. Earn respect, NOT demand.
