Well, it sounds like you're going to have to manage them and set down some rules. I'm sorry your having this added complication. I wonder if it might get worse as he continues to feel better. I was so hoping all that nonsense was pain induced frown

Brat attack! whistling

I noticed with Larka that as she ages she gets more sore from Arthritis, so she feels her leadership might become threatened. As a result, she would eat her dinner except for a few morsels and then she would set up the food guarding routine. We have taken her dish away to see that she will try doing it with someone else's dish.
Lacey used to do this as well.

It makes me wonder if Cooper is going through the same kind of thing. Where he feels his position in the pack is in jedpardy because of his weakness and pain of his hip. I know he must be feeling better. But do dogs think like us? It might still be a carry over from before. A learned behavior.
The trick would be how to break the cycle without having him feel threatened by your authority.

Just sayin'

Thank you so much for your thoughts and ideas. Moo has always kind of been the bossy bitch. I have to wonder if he is just bored brainless. 3 more weeks.....

I hate to say it, but while I believe he's probably really bored, I don't think that's the cause of the aggressive bursts frown I hope that I am wrong. I also think that with a few new rules put in place, you should be able to nip this in the bud.

Thank you so much, I will read those after. I'm also keen to ensure this doesn't become the new normal.

But no news is good news, 4 weeks post op today and he is a trooper. Xrays in two more weeks.

Thank you so much for thinking of us hugging
