We just obtaineded a schiperke puppy. We have an 8 year old boston terrier, whom has been our center of attention. Puppy fiercly darted at Sassie when giving love seperately.How do we put an end to this behavior before Sassie feels alienated and not making Skipper angry.

Puppy needs firm limits and !exercise!. My experience is that Schips can be a bit aggressive with other dogs, and their very high energy up to age 5 can make them a bit nutty. They need to be AGGRESSIVELY socialized with humans and other dogs as puppies or they can be standoffish and/ or aggressive with strangers (human and canine)They will bark a fair amount as they alert to any change around them, to let you know. We call ours canine doorbells!
