My two play very rough and sometimes it worries me as well, but I just let them go at it until one of them says enough is enough. The jack russell is usually the first to give in and he will scream his little head off like he's really hurt, but I know better. It took me a month or so to understand he wasn't really hurt, so I just tell him to shush. 2 minutes later he's instigating play again. Of course there have been a couple real fights, but I just break it up and move on. Don't feel bad if there are real fights, they can't always get along when they are with each other 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Oh and humping....Domino is always trying to hump Edee. Its hilarious cuz he does it on her head or her side, and she just does a quick 360 flip to get away and Domino is content until the next day.

I am also dealing with psycho puppy syndrome. Ellie gets these wild tears. Hitting every toy we own, jumping on and nipping Jake (so far he has been really tolerant, but I know the correction is coming) racing around the house.

She gets wild, Seems to make Jake Horny and he tries to hump her. I discourage it and just tell him "NO, don't hump your baby sister... that is just wrong!" He quits.

then the barking back and forth (like right now!) It will pass! I just hope it wears Ellie out a bit!

We've not had anything that classifies as a "fight" There are some corrections from Jake, but as long as no blood, I let them work it out. (he is being much more tolerant than I expected!) He's such a Good Boy!

Thanks everyone for your advice! Oscar is obviously not giving in anymore. In fact when we let them go potty, he will run and nip Emma's ears and send her in a fury. She clearly was mad and barked back but he still kept coming at her. She couldn't even potty in peace now! And I should still let them work it out the themselves?

How long last a dogs play last typically? Mine just go on and on.....sigh

Period of readjustment? Oscar hasn't had the best of appetite since we took Emma home. He probably is eating half of usual and needs a lot of coaxing most of the time. Is it normal?

Aw Emma's Mom....I really do feel for you...Can't help with Oscar not eating what he should...never had that problem but from day one I fed Toby in the bathroom and Barney in the kitchen...I would guess that Oscar is still adjusting....One thing I did that seemed to help was make a point of loving on them both at the same time...it seemed to reassure them that we all belonged to the pack. They say that you should also spend some alone time with each....to tell the truth, I didn't do too much of that but it's probably a good idea.

In this house I am the main puppy care taker. However, daddy makes special Boy Time for he and Jake. a much needed break from the constant energy from the puppy. I try to give Jake Mommy time, but usually Ellie tries to butt in on that... we have to sneak it when she is sleeping!
