Yeah she is starting to get a bit more energy. The other pup is good for her. They tend to tire each other out throughout the day while we are at work.
This is the deaf puppy. She is a reslly nice dog(not sure what kind) very cuddly and probably more obdient then ava once you have her attention. Currently working on hand signals with her


The kelpie is very sooky when we take her to the dog park, the other pup hasnt been that much and seems to socialises better or not be afraid of the other dogs. AVA just tends to hang around us and whinge/whine a fair bit especially if there are bigger dogs there. Anything to worry about?

This is probably fine. Probably just a bit insecure. Becomes an issue if they're protecting you, sitting on your feet or really close to you.

Ours used to do this a fair bit at the dog beach, we kept sending him away and he eventually got the idea we didn't need protection. After that he socialised normally, got his confidence. When he was too close to us he was confused about his role, so was a bit unpredictable. I took him on my own a few times so the message wasn't confused by the kids. Didn't take long.

Thanks. I dont believe it is protections as she will fit under the bench or between our legs which makes me think its her being scared.

I think she will grow out of it. Well atleast i hope so. Dottie takes the protection role sometimes and guards ava and doesnt let big dogs near her

Is she's scared, she'll look scared. If she's insecure she'll stay close and will cower if another dog comes close. If she's reacting to the situation as if its a threat to you, she'll get around your feet and you'll see agression when another dog approaches. This is the problem one, because it leads to unpredictable reactions.

Either way, you're best course is to get her away from you. She's got to trust you enough before she'll do that though. Her confidence is directly related to how stable she feels the pack is.

It's not a democracy and she needs to know you're large and in charge. This solves about 100% of behavioural issues, 9 times out of 10. Not saying shout or threaten, quite the reverse.

Walk tall and make decisive actions and movements, start with the assumption that everything is going to work exactly as you want it to and go ahead and do it. Don't ask permission and don't look for reassurance along the way. If you're going for a walk in a public off leash area, take her off the leash and just walk away without looking at her. It's her job to stick with you, not yours to chase her. Impose your will a bit every now and then, she'll be much less likely to be confused.

Gone on a bit, but I got this advice when we'd had our dog for about 6 weeks and it really worked for us. He was a year old rescue dog, with a pile of bad habits, and our first dog (wife, four kids). He's really settled now though.. dozy thing he is.

That is some good advice Chris.
As the owner of a large dog I see all sorts of reactions from people at the off leash area, and my boy does run up to other dogs in a way that does freak some people out. He only ever wants to play though and has never bitten another dog in his 6 years.
I tend to put him on the lead now, especially since his leg op.

We have our second Rottweiler now and get the same reaction. Our bitch just wants to play and we just get the look from owners of white fluffy things as their dogs attempt to remove our dogs face.
So when they say something like "your dog needs to be on a leash" I say
"Why, is your dog aggressive?"
And they always make poor excuses for their fluff balls poor behaviour. The fact is if our Rottie behaved like that people would want her destroyed.
My daughter was recently bitten by another dog and the owner said "sorry she only bites people she doesn't know". That's a dangerous dog. It needs to be destroyed as it wasn't the first time it bitten someone.

Get the same reaction at the off leash beach to our boy. He's staffy/cattle dog/ridgeback cross. He's got a big smile and he's solid. So nervous owners of nervous dogs are not surprisingly nervous around him.

Especially because he's so playful. They're scared enough to keep their dogs on leads to start with and then they meet our dog and that makes it worse. For them.

We've been made to feel like we're at fault, but our dog hasn't barked, growled or bitten anyone or anything. He's had other dog owners wave their arms and shout at him a couple of times and we've had one or two conversations, but he's good and so are we.

Nervous owners making nervous dogs. Bad deal.
