My yorkie is a lunatic. ;o) I love her that way, but my poodles are a little less enthralled. Our boy is bigger than Brooke and he's good with her, but our girl is a delicate 5# girl and Brooke is far from delicate and 8#.
She grabs their ears and just yanks on them in way of inviting play. They both correct her but I think they'd have to maul her half to death for her to get the picture that they aren't just playing back.
Brookie is 14 months, and it has become obvious I should have dealt with this long ago, but it's a seize-the-day sort of issue now. Any advice??
She also barks a lot in play - with our boy. I don't mind it but my partner really does. I don't want to discourage the play, but any ideas about discouraging the barking and the dragging-the-poodle-by-the ear without discouraging her from being a puppy??
Thanks in advance for your ideas.
Judith & Brooke Lynn (& poodles:Tazah & Minkee) I'm surrounded by poodles here!!
