my video of Daisy as a puppy
When I first brought Daisy home, she was three months. I thought Riki was growling at her, but it was her grunting at him. He would throw himself down and she would jump on him and make all sorts of growly sounds and grunts. He loved this. I've had the two of them five years together and only two times has there been a "fight" and it was over a bully stick which I got rid of.
Usually there will be a yelp if one of them gets hurt and the other one immediately stops...and then they go at it again. Even though Riki has about three pounds on her, I think Daisy is definitely the more roudy one. But she lets him know when she has had enough.
When we doggy sit, there is more dominating going on, but no more rough play. Riki will usually try to dominate her or she him if we have a visitor...but the silly play, grunting, growly play biting is part of what dogs do. Especially dogs of similar size.
Little kids always tell me my dogs are fighting. I know what fighting sounds like, I hear it all the time at the dog park...which is why we don't go...
I didn't just get havanese, I got a lifestyle!
