Hi everyone !
I have a very well behaved and well trained chihuahua (female)
She barely ever barks and is very obedient
She is about 4lbs
Last week we got a little boy who will only grow up to be about 2-3lbs
I am still trying to potty train him, but I have already started basic obedience training and he can sit on command.
They are both SO SWEET when they are apart.
They just sit down and love getting cuddles and caresses
Sometimes when they are together, they are fine, they play, jump around etc.
But sometimes their playing turns violent and they start nipping each other
Other times my female chi (she is much bigger), keeps standing over the little boy (obviously trying to dominate him) and he starts growling and it escalates.
I thought they would work it out amongst themselves and soon they will grow to love each other, but last night the little boy hurt his eye ( I think he might have been bitten)
There was no blood or anything, and the vet gave me some eyedrops and he is fine. But I don't want it to turn into something more serious.
They are both going to be show dogs and this was part of my contract with the breeder so I can not spay/neuter them.
I separate them as soon as they fight, but it happens at least 10 times a day and it is just frustrating!
Any suggestions how I can stop them fighting?
In this photo they are being cute and calm... but it doesn't last long!
