Toy Wars

Post by Nina1 on Fri Aug 12 2016, 08:20

Morning - I have a 10 year old Staffy (Gus) and on Sunday we brought home an 8 week old Staff (Elvis). Things were really stressful at the beginning of the week but things are starting to settle just a little. My gussy puts up with Elvis for a few seconds of nipping but soon puts him in his place and I don't intervene which is working. However my Gussy loves his tennis balls and when Elvis tries to get it off him boy does Gus go mad! I know my gussy won't hurt him but I have to keep an eye on them or I have Toy Wars!

Anyone gone or going through through this?

Be good to get some advice ☺️

Ah yeah... toy jealousy Rolling Eyes

Just keep an eye out that it doesn't get out of hand, you might want to practice a calm down command for when things get a bit too rowdy too

I no longer keep toys out because of the toy jealousy. We started to take the boys out separately for toy time.
