I tried the "no", treats, water gun, hose and nothing breaks his fixation. I'll just wait it out. I know he really can't help it. Primal urges. Thanks for the reply. At least I know he's normal. It just came as somewhat of a surprise since he's neutered. We're getting her spayed anyway when she's older. So, it's only a temporary problem. Thank God for baby gates. smile

We got Koby neutered last December at 3 years old. We wanted him to be fully mature before making the decision. Since then, we got Reina. Now she's in heat. Is it normal for Koby to behave like an un altered male? We have to keep the both of them completely separated. His interest in her is as though he was never neutered. In the past, we've always had our dogs neutered at a much younger age, so I just don't know if this is normal behavior. confused

Did they have any scars on them? I wonder if they were bait dogs?

Anticipation.......Drives me nuts too........big laugh One time Koby was squealing so loud, it sounded like we were torturing him (well, maybe we were in his mind). My daughter thought the neighbors were going to call the SPCA on us. laugh out loud He shut up when he got his kiddie pool. relieved

It could be. When Koby thinks he "supposed" to have his kiddie pool, he paces, whines and pants until he gets it or I put him away for some quiet time. LOLOL I think sometimes they so thoroughly enjoy something that they just work themselves up over it.

First of all, GOD BLESS YOU for taking on 3 pups at once. Sounds to me like they're "partners in crime". You are doing all the right things. Keep in kind that for potty training, in general, dogs don't have "reliable" potty control until they are between 4 and 6 months of age, give or take a few weeks.
As for the snapping, in your profile, you have the pups listed as Blue Healer and Bassett Hound. Keep in mind that both of them are working dogs. In general, pups that are mixed breeds will pick up the traits of one or the other of the breed they are mixed with. That doesn't mean the entire litter will pick up the same traits, it just sometimes a few or even just one will behave more like one of the breeds than all the rest. With that said, it sounds like Molly is guarding not only food but others things as well. Some dogs need lots of exercise and if they don't get it, they will entertain themselves, and it's usually with unwanted behaviors like you describe. Maybe Molly inherited more of the Blue Healer traits than the other pups you kept. So, I would keep the food away from them including the cat's food. Put it in a place where the cat can get it but the dogs can't get near it.
The fact that you are taking her to work with you and the dog park is a good idea. She may have some fear aggression, but does she snap when she's near you, toys, water, etc. Is she displaying the guarding at the dog park? If she is, then you need to walk over and move her away from the object she's guarding and discipline her. Koby displayed that kind of behavior and we would body block him and move him away from the object and give him a firm "NO". It took a while, but it worked. Now he has no issues with that. For the food aggression, I would make sure you keep them separated when feeding and supervised. It already sounds like thats what your doing.
As for the stealing and chewing, they may grow out of that. All my dogs did that. You may want to restrict where they're allowed in your house. That way they can be kept out of the things they're not supposed to be in. Reina is almost 8 months old and she still doesn't have run of our house. She gets into too many things.
Hope that helps. I'm out of time so maybe someone else can jump in with more advice. It's very nice you saved the momma dog and her babies. Good for you. applause

I hope that helps him. It helps control Koby's pain really well.

When my dogs get itchy, I use Sulfadene Shampoo once a week and the Sulfadene yellow medicated liquid for the worst spots after the bath. It really helps hot spots. Its not expensive and I used to be able to get it from Wal-mart, but now I buy it online. Good Luck!
