How can get a dominant elkhound puppy to back off of the chihuahua?
I have a very dominant, 5 month old elkhound/german shepherd mix. my girlfriend has a runt toy chihuahua. my dog will just not leve the poor thing alone. we have to seperate the two of them. my dog does not nip, he is not aggressive. rather, he stands over the chihuahua and stays in his face as soon as he touches the floor. it is very important the i correct this behavior while my dog is still young. this is something i have never dealt with before. Does anyone have any experience with something like this? If so, what worked for you?
