Question in regards to dog ownership

3 posts in this topic

Ok, so my parents live up in the sticks with two dogs, Mauser, and Browning. Mauser is a un-neutered dominant 110lb black lab, and Browning is a smaller 80lb golden retriever. They are used to being able to run free, and are excelent hunters. Mauser is extremly dominant, and strong. Browning is quick and smart. Every once in a while, they get in to fights with each other... but couldn't live without each other, since they are aproximatly the same age of 3-4 years old and have been raised together since puppyhood.

I want to get a dog that I could bring up there, and not worry so much about the dogs fighting.

My dad says maybe I should get a Spayed female, that wouldn't be so territorial in my house when the other two dogs come to visit; but I'm afraid that they would then fight over the female dog.

Maybe I could get another male, but perhaps that would make it harder when the two dogs come visit me in my small little house in st paul.

any suggestions?

Are these 2 dogs socialized with other dogs?

Do you have any friends w/ dogs that you could set up as a "play date" to see how they react. I have 2 friends w/ male labs and my female gets along fine with them. I think the most important thing for any dog is exposure to other dogs so that they feel comfortabel with thier hierarchy, unsocialized dogs may be unpredictable.

RH hit it on the head. Regardless of what you get, the key to avoiding these issues is socialization, socialization, socialization. Take your dog to the dog park, to the store, to soccer games...wherever you go, bring your pup and teach him/her what's acceptable behavior or not.

Bringing another male, especially if still intact, into the mix at your folks' place is more than likely gonna be trouble no matter how well socialized your dog is. A female isn't going to cause them to fight over her unless she's in heat. A female may be the easiest solution, or a 2x4 to Mauser's head when he's being a dork! smile

(joke, not advocating a 2x4 to the head...really)

    •     Free market Republicans????  HAHAHA,!!!!
    • Please God, make Keith Ellison the head of the DNC
    •   Doubtful we would have seen it by now. The bigger issue has always been possible collusion between Trump's campaign and Russian opps to influence the election - and who knew what and who ordered what. That's the big fish. You just have to be patient, all in due time Uncle Bill.
    •   I didn't waste a vote on him..   The garbage can had as much a chance of winning.   You owe the brave voters of Trump a great debt of gratitude for saving this country from hillary..   That's one big beer you owe the "trumpers"...   Bigly....  
    • Picked up some track at FF and put it on the floor and ramp. Also added a couple sections of e track on the wall to hang tie downs etc. Doesn't look like I'm going to get any use out of it this year but will be ready for next year. Plan on taking out track on floor in summer as it can get slippery and going to put in a couple wheel chocks for motorcycles.

      Snow pains on the motor veinsSnow Days
      Keeps your business on the ground
      It's coming down
      Slow day for the teacher
      And her wheels are spinning now
      On account of winter, Mrs. Braintree
      All the roads are closed
      And the stores are loot for vagabonds
      It's coming down
      Go home!

      It's coming down
      Snow lays on the chainfields
      There's a blessing on the ground
      It's coming down
      If your lanes are crammed with children
      There's a blessing on your town
      On a lucky Monday, Mrs. Braintree
      All your lanes are waxen silver
      And the stores are loot for vagabonds
      It's coming down
      Go home! Go home and take a snow day, Mrs. Braintree!

      Mrs. Braintree, you're a chilly northern woman
      Go home from yonder bus stop
      Because there's a blessing on the ground
      Mrs. Braintree, it is written
      When the snows come over Dixie
      All the roads are closed and the stores are loot for vagabonds.

      Go home!   I think Reb lives next door to Mrs Braintree.  She's a chilly northern woman.
    •     I think he's actually you and delcecchi's hero, judging by the number of times you guys bring him up....
    •   So did you get a guarantee when we started and lost the war on drugs or is this your version of a double standard? I am saying here is a reasonable solution with the positives outweighing the negatives. This is especially true when compared to the current model that has never worked.   Benefits to ending the war on drugs.
      1. Huge savings enforcement and prison $$$ that can be used on treatment. 1 Trillion spent so far with no results.
      2. Police can focus their man hours on violent and other criminals. 82% of drug arrests are for possession. 3. Creating jobs and collecting taxes on drug sales. Imagine that save tax $$ on enforcement and increase revenue, win win. 4. The legit business model puts most of the dealers, gangs and cartels out of business. The very fact that drugs are illegal makes them expensive because of the risk involved, taking the money out of the black market essentially puts these people out business and that is a good thing. Keeping drug illegal keeps the money flowing their way and nothing we can do other than legalization will stop this.

       
      Says the guy who wants to double down on 45 years of failed policy and poor judgment.
      What is even more mind blowing is that free market republicans want to continue failed big gov policies at a huge cost to the taxpayers. We already have legal drugs from big pharm killing people in record numbers to go along with alcohol and tobacco deaths so it is not like we are venturing into unknown territory here.
