my rescue Savannah met my daughters pom
She was happy and very curious about her and all seemed to be going well with all of us monitoring.
The first 5mins was good.
Then the pom came to see me and that did not go over so well at all Savannah did NOT want her near HER mama.
she growled at first and I told her a firm NO and she stopped.
Then she chased her nipping at the air and making a fair of noise but not biting thank god.
So we had to go into training mode and correcting this behavior.
Cassie bear is non confrontational so she was not fond of the training exercise where I had savannah on my right and her on my left and petting them both and telling Savannah to be nice part.
Then my son in law did the same thing and my daughter as well.
Then we let cassie go on the floor and if Savannah growled if she walked near me. I had to put her down to show her this is not acceptable behavior and consequences for this were she was not sitting next to mama.
She did settle down but I know we will have to work on this again in the future.
She was around 8 other dogs so the lady said and we don't know if she was bullied since she's so tiny.
Her papa was concerned about her regressing back to being scared of us for correcting her.
He was ready to take her under his arm and down to his studio so my guess sometime this week he'll bring home a little bed to squeeze in among the radio equipment.
he never had small dogs before my binky and when I got savannah he was still very upset about losing binky.
This little girl sure wormed into his heart pretty fast and has him owned.
I had to be firm with him...lol
I told him I don't think that is an issue look at this little girl making herself taller and I'm actually holding her back in the air no less.
nipping it in the bud is so hard on my soft soul and personality but teaching her manners and good behavior even though it will take work will be worth it in the long run.
any of the yorkies I've had did not like loud corrections so I did this with a very firm lower tone but different than normal and it did work for her.
I have faith that one day she will actually be like my others when I say that is not acceptable behavior for a yorkie ...she'll simmer down
