Default Little pup, playing with larger pup?

Hi all, it is a long story - and we didn't expect or plan that the pups would living together but here we are:

8 week old female doberman puppy
6 month old male boxer

They get on great, however as you can imagine there is a large size difference between the two of them. She will often run around and jump ontop of him while hes lying down, or come from behind – nip his tail and then run off (provoking!). He will then get excited and try and play back, unfortunately this sometimes results in her being knocked over.

So far we have been timing them out, and trying to teach him gentle etc etc…

My question is – at what age do you think she will likely be big enough (physically) to handle herself?

Obviously we will play everything by ear, and always supervise them together until we are certain they are ok by themselves – but as my sister is working night shift so this is possible she was curious to how long this may be.

Any estimates at what age the doberman puppy may be large enough to play with him unspervised? (of course this is just an estimate, i wont do it until we are 100% sure).

Thanks!

Welcome to Dogforum.org.


Dobes grow fast, probaly 4-5 months old but really you should be there when they play together.

Do you have some pics ?
