Aggression

No I haven't, I'm starting to wonder if its hormones because maddie the bc is in season and she is starting to refuse to go near Molly when Molly is being friendly, at typing I'm waiting for a call back from the vet to see if they can give me some advice

If you believe it only is happening when you are in the picture, I am guessing Molly is becoming a bit posssesive of you and your husband. Particularly the part about her growling on the bed when you moved the other dog, most likely, closer to her. My own feeling is that for a while you should stop the sleeping on the bed. Have them both on the floor in their own beds. I like mine own to know it's a priviledge, not a right, to sleep on the bed, be on the couch, etc. Once things settle down and there is good behavior you can re-introduce sleeping on the bed. Possessiveness and resource guarding is definitely something you want to curb earlier than later. You have already taken steps with the bones, etc. Now maybe the bed. Perhaps talking with a dog-behaviorist would be beneficial as well. Good luck!

Aggression

We think we may have got the crux of the problem, we think possibly Molly has been constipated at the times of agression. We have noticed a couple of time that the next day when she has had a big evacuation she has been a lot friendlier towards maddie so we will have to look at diet, ŵe r also going to start crate training for both of them and and obedience classes, it's a trial ad error thing t the moment.

I am sorry for horning in on this forum. I can't figure out how to start a new thread. We are having some problems with our 2 1/2 year old Golden Emma. I think we are have made a huge mistake by bringing home a new Golden pup (8 wks) last night. Quite a while back I used to post on here when I lost my Hannah (reckless friend let her get killed) and soon after we got Emma (different breeder). Emma showed some aggression as a small puppy. We did get some advice but no real training. Emma has been a loving girl. Demands a ton of attention. In the last 6 moths twice Emma bared her teeth at me and my husband when we tried to take something away from her. Like if she is digging at the carpet or grabbing something off the floor and putting it in her mouth. We thought if she had a sister it would help her. Well, already this morning she has been growling at the puppy. When I admonished her "NO" she growled again. I shook my finger at her and said "NO" again. Emma bared her teeth and nipped at me growled. Scared me. But I'm actually more sad than scared. We are figuring out a way to feed them separately. I welcome questions, comments, advice.
I know the finger shaking was probably a stupid thing to do. Thanks.

I do think you need to start your own thread...go to the main page, scroll down to behavioral problems (or puppy forum, where ever you want to start ). Click on the name of the section you want to be. It will open and show you all the threads. If you go up, in the left corner you see 'new thread'. Click on that, and you are good to go.
