today we met with a trainer who helped to introduce cooper and tyler. tyler is about 4 yo and the two fo them did great. at first, cooper was dominating tyler and then I learned to touch his neck with two fingers which made him back off. of course I had to do it over and over again but cooper is pretty smart and will get the hang of it soon I hope. the two dogs sniffed each other up and down and later in the day, tyler actually gave cooper a kiss on the nose. just one lick. I wish I was there to see it. tyler actually showed cooper how to walk on the leash. it was so much fun. cooper did a lot of running today as well and then konked out for hours. and no whining in the xpen when I wasn't paying attention to him. Yay!!! the trainer was great and we'll be meeting again next week.

Hi Lori, little puppies do not "dominate" adult dogs. The whole point of allowing a puppy to play with a well socialized adult dog is that the DOG should tell the puppy when "enough is enough", not the people.

I am a bit concerned because the "dominant" language, plus the "touch with two fingers on the neck" sounds way too much like Cesar Milan stuff. I would strongly suggest that you check some other training places and see if you can find a place that focuses on positive training practices and offers puppy kindergarten classes with lots of off leash puppy play time.

thanks Karen. I had no idea! I have never seen Ceasar Milan. The trainer used the word dominant as follows: Cooper kept jumping up to Tyler's neck. He said they bite the neck to show who's boss. Also the trainer said that Cooper is an Alpha. he said though with the right training he doesn't have to be an Alpha with me.

Today Cooper also met another sweet dog Gracie. They did pretty well together although Cooper humped Gracie (a 5 year old dog). Cooper went onto Gracie's hind and did a couple of humps!!! It's so surprising to me. I didn't know a little puppy would do that. Anyway, I will call Pam later and talk to her about it.

And thank you for the heads up regarding the trainer. I would never have known. he's a very gentle guy. But I will look into other options.
