Moving and adjustment issues
We recently moved to OH with Lucy (my yorkie) and Ringo (my Westie).
Since the move, Ringo has been very aggressive to Lucy and this morning, bit my teen-age son behind the ear. He has never done this.
Ringo had some adjustment issues when Lucy first came along; but Ithought those were long behind us. However, he has been giving her the stare-down a lot and pouncing on her for no reason.
They have a new house to adjust to and no fence. Ringo is very high energy and we had half an acre fenced yard. We are in the process of erecting a fence but will take a few weeks.
Also, this house has carpeting and our old house had none. So, we have been keeping them crated when we leave as both of them will potty on the carpet. We have not left them alone for long until I return to work on Thursday.
I've been walking them both to alocal park every morning and another long walk late evening when it's cooler.
Any suggestions to help my dominant Westie adjust to his new surroundings? Or will this just die down once we get into a routine?
We've been here a week.
Mommy to Lucy, Ringo, and Matthew
