Default Daisy and the German Shepherd

Hello all.

I've been browsing the forum and seen some really useful information. We have just got a new golden retriever pup called Daisy. These are some pictures of her.





She's a very adventurous pup and is giving us a lot of pleasure but we have one small problem. We also have a 10 year old German Shepherd called Woolfie who is generally Ok with her but has a tendency to occasonally growl and bark at her. I'm sure he wouldn't hurt her but we always supervise them just to make sure. It seems to be more the frighten effect that is the problem. Any ideas? also does anyone know of a good flea treatment suitable for an 8 1/2 week old pup?

Thanks

Welcome Kernewek!

I'm sorry, I can't see the pictures, but I'm sure your pup is adorable! I love Golden Retrievers.

Hi Kernewek and

Wow! What a lot of questions! Glad you found us!
I see there is something not right about the links for your pictures of Daisy. Do have a look at this
Newbie Guide to the Forum

Can you tell us more about what causes Woolfie to growl at Daisy?

Thought I'd also attach a pic of her mum who is my mum's dog. She is called Cassie. I hope this works this time.
Woolfie seems to growl when we tell her to leave or something when she is chewing something she shouldn't. He also growled when she weed in his bed. Can't say I blame him for that! He kind of goes for the back of her neck like a mother would pick up her pups but he never bites her!

Very cute pictures!
So Woolfie is growling at the pup and not at a human, is that correct?

Sounds like Woolfie is just trying to make sure the youngster minds her manners. Do bear in mind though that it is YOUR job to let your pup know what is and isn't appropriate, and to make sure that she isn't harassing poor old Woolfie. If the pup doesn't get the message to back down and leave him alone when he growls at her it is time for you to step in and remove the pup to give Woolfie some peace. This is where your crate / playpen / childgate can be invaluable.

Hi. Thanks for the advice but she doesn't really tend to harass woolfie. It tends to happen when she is kind of enclosed, for instance sitting in a corner or running under the dishwasher door when we open it. Incidentally we had a very quiet evening with no problems yesterday so that was an improvement. We also give Woolfie quite a bit of space as my wife and I both work during the day so Daisy goes to my mother's house, unless my wife takes her to work, and plays with her mother, father and sister so they're only together during the evenings
