Choosing puppy playmate who appears to be aggressive
My husband and I have a 5 month old Morkie who still has nipping problem and was not sleeping through the night. We were trying to get rid of the 2 AM "play time". More exercise before night time was recommended on a helpful research, like this. He likes to run free and play.
We are trying to introduce a collie puppie in the neighborhood to come for some free play in our fenced yard. The yard is small and there are three young people who bring the dog over. I'm also concerned that this is our puppy's territory and I do not want to have hime relinguish everything he has because of his small size and having the new puppy "guest". There are no other safe places for the dogs to be free except maybe the collie's yard which has not been offered.
Our puppy is delighted however to have the the collie puppy visit. It is larger, more aggressive, naturally, and confused. The collie puppy training is still a little behind and the transition to the family is behind our puppy's. "Can this relationship be saved?"
