Last chance - April 26th 2020, 05:33 PM

We haven't had this new dog for 24 hours and he has already bit both of my two other dogs. Sasha was laying on the floor and the new dog came up and got her, Henry ran over to save her and new dog got him. I screamed and cried, my two sister's and mom grabbed the dogs. I didn't mean to get scared. My parents said if he does it one more time, he goes back.

Hi Emma,

Sorry to hear about what happened and I hope your dogs are OK. Did the staff where you got your new dog mention that he didn't like other dogs? Maybe you should talk to them about it and if they didn't mention it, ask them why it wasn't brought up in the first place. I hope things get better for you, your pets and family.

Thank you so much, I'll ask my parents about what you are saying and see what they can find out. Hugs

Sorry to hear this Emma. Some dogs may get excited and 'nip' at other dogs but they shouldn't be biting. It's understandable you would get scared and upset over this, even if you didn't mean to. It can be upsetting seeing pets getting hurt by other pets. I agree with Omen though about asking the staff for more information on this dog and whether he gets on with other dogs and pets or not.

Hey, sorry this reply is a few days late.

Sometimes younger dogs can nip other dogs out of excitement. Did you get the dog from a breeder, and if so, do they have available histories you could look into to find out whether aggression is a problem? If they do, it's worth making yourself aware of this just to avoid any nasty surprises in the future, especially if the dog is a tad aggressive now.

There are some ways you can help train the dog to avoid biting and aggression. For a start, you could think about crate training the new puppy. The crate can be the puppy's safe space, so that the other dogs aren't getting too close for him when he's still adjusting to the new environment. But also, if the puppy is behaving badly, you can put him into time out in the crate so that he can calm down before you let him back out to play. You can also introduce the dogs in a neutral space. Try going to a dog park, having both dogs on a lead, and letting them sniff each other. That way they're not in anyones territory, and you have control of the situation. If the puppy gets a bit bitey, pull him away. Try not to give him any rewards, such as by petting him or offering treats, any time he is aggressive at all. When he does something good, such as interacting nicely or showing he is aware of the other dogs boundaries you can offer treats and praise him so that he knows the difference between when he's in the right or in the wrong.

With new puppies it's always a bit of trial and error, but try to be consistent in the training you give him. If possible, try and make sure the whole family know this too. If all of you consistently offer the same rewards or non-rewards, he'll get the picture quicker. Don't expect perfection straight away, he's going to want to play and it might take some time for him to understand yes and no, but hopefully you'll get there!

Finally, if the puppy does seem aggressive, and if he's unsafe for your existing dogs to be around, it's completely fine for you to have to take him back, as hard as that may be. I'd definitely have a chat with the people you got him from, try and find out about any genetic traits he may or may not have, and go from there. A friend of mine is quite into dogs and training so I know bits and pieces from her own experiences, so if you have any questions you're welcome to ask me. I might not know the answer, but I'm happy to research a bit more and help you figure it out as best as possible.

Hope everything's ok!

Thank you so much for you're replies and what you are saying. My parents are trying to find out more about him, the foster family hasn't gotten back with us yet. The new dog is 3 years old. I can't take it anymore. Maybe something will help us. Thank you again.

Emma, so sorry to hear about this. It can take some time for a new dog to get acquainted with other dogs. Especially if the dog is from a shelter. I hope you are able to make it work. =)
