Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler Question

1yo Red heeler - always keeps her ears back


I have a female red heeler who has just turned one. She only ever pricks her ears up when she ears a noise or is interested in something otherwise her ears are always kept back in a submissive position. Is this normal? We also have a 6yo male blue heeler who is definitely the dominant dog, could this be why she feels she always has to take a submissive stance?

Every dog is different and if your female is naturally submissive, then yes, it is normal. But since you have a dominant male dog, it is also normal for her to take the submissive position compared to him.
