i got my malinois puppy, honour, at 12 wks old, all was well in our househond at 1st and she got on well with my jack russell ( 2yrs ) and my lab x ( 9yrs ). at 5 months old however she started to launch unprovoked attacks on the lab x whenever they are in the house together, there appear to be no triggers for this. the problem escalated so they can never be in a room together without an attack taking place so we now have to keep them seperate. oddly though the dogs get along well when in the garden or out on walks. we have been trying 2 solve this behavior 4 the last 5 months, honour is now 10 months old, with the help of various dog behaviouristsand the belgian shepherd rescue society but have had no success. we do not want to give either dog up but are coming t0 the point were this is our only option, can anyone help? all suggestions welcome.

life is great

We had the same problem and had to let delilah spend more time out side. She did not like other animals sniffing her. Over time she did let it happen but it did take time.
