Question: Is it alright to let my old dog correct my new puppy for bad behavior by barking and growling at him?

I have a mellow, neutered male 12 year old mix breed medium sized house dog and recently acquired a JRT puppy. Is it alright to let the old dog correct the pup with growls and barks when she pesters him or jumps up on him? He wants nothing to do with the puppy and usually walks away from her. He is tolerant of sharing his bed if she lies quietly beside him. The pup is doesn't always get the message, however, and continues to bug him until he gets up and goes to another spot.

Cindy's Response:

I don’t allow my older dogs to be harassed by new puppies and I don’t allow them to correct the pup either.  I keep control of the situation until the new pup is integrated into our house properly, knows the rules and I am able to control the pup via my voice.  This can be a while!

I’d read the article Ed wrote on The Groundwork to Becoming your Puppy’s Pack Leader.

We use an exercise pen to get the puppy used to living with us and our other dogs. It keeps the pup and our belongings safe and allows our adult dogs to relax and get to the know the pup in a safe manner.  I don’t want my puppy to have a bad experience with my older dogs.

I’d recommend the video Your Puppy 8 weeks to 8 Months. You might also want to browse our streaming video section.

I hope this helps.

Another Question:

Thank-you Cindy. My old dog will also be grateful for your advice. I will continue to use the ex-pen and keep the pup separated from the old guy. I'm curious, how old was Stella when she was under voice control in the house, or is she still not ready?

Cindy's Response:

Stella is still on a leash when she's out of the ex pen in the house with us (she's 9 months old). She's made good progress but I'd rather have the leash on her and not need it than the other way around. :)

Cindy Rhodes

Thanks:

OK!  I intend to do the same. You guys are a great encouragement to me to do what I know is needed instead of doing what my friends (with disobedient dogs!) expect. It's tough looking like the meanie, but I want my dog to be a welcome visitor when she is grown up. Delayed gratification!

On Leerburg's Chewber

I have a 2 year old Malinois that loves flying discs, but has a very hard bite, very sharp teeth and a "scissor bite" like a pair of tin-snips. So, even though I do not let her "chew" on her flying toys, and she does not try to destroy them, they seldom last very long before they are damaged past the point of flight. Those "kong" discs don't even last a week...

The Chewber is the only flying toy that has lasted for over a year and shows almost no serious signs of damage. It's very flexible and can be rolled and stuffed into a pack or pocket, but it always springs right back to shape and does not get stretched or warped like other flexible rubber or foam discs.

The Michael Ellis School for Dog Trainers

In the fall of 2012, Michael Ellis will be moving his school for dog trainers to Santa Rosa, CA. The new location is much larger than his current location and will allow Michael to add additional classes and courses to the curriculum. In early 2013, Michael is planning to add a course for military veterans. This course will be specifically tailored to veterans who are getting out of the military.
