Love my Golden Boys!!
We have 3 retrievers. Our youngest 2, who are 9 months and 7 months old get along 98% of the time. However, 5 minutes into a play session, they start fighting.....this is real fighting. I have bite marks to prove it!! We are not sure what precipitates it. It appears that our youngest, Lincoln, just hasn't learned how to play properly although he has been well socialized, been to obedience training (is going again next week) and was just neutered (3 weeks ago) along with our 9 month old (Austin). They both listen well and are well trained for puppies their age. We are baffled by this fighting and have even called in our version of the Dog Whisperer who gave us some pointers but they haven't helped. Has anyone else experienced this kind of behaviour from their puppies? If so, how did you handle it??????
