Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

PostSubject: Playing too rough with the new puppy   Mon Mar 03, 2014 6:10 pm

We have two dogs, our doberman just turned a year old and our husky puppy is 3 months.  At first our dobie was very gentle when playing with the puppy.  Now she seems very rough and loves to knock him down and grab his neck.  He enjoys playing with her but will often come lay at my feet when she is being too persistant.  He has been looking depressed lately and I am wondering if the dobie is hurting him.  They both bite and pull on each other, however the doberman is more than twice the size of the puppy.  My husband thinks they are just playing but I am worried.  Has anyone had a new puppy in the home with an older dog and experienced this?

Sounds pretty normal and like they are playing and communicating well. The older Doberman should respond to the pup's limits. If the younger Husky is playing back and contributing to the mouthyness and the roughness than you shouldn't have much to worry about. Just watch for prolonged pinning by the older Doberman.

What do you mean looking depressed? Can you elaborate? How is it related to when they are playing?

Thank you for your input. The last few days he seemed to have a lack of energy and enthusiasm. Not really wanting to play, kind of laying around. However when I got home last night (after I had posted this) he seemed to be back to the excited, tail wagging, mischief seeking puppy I love.

Sounds like he could have just been tired? Pups that young sleep a lot and will get exhausted by big energy expenditures for a day or so.  

It would have to be a dramatic, extreme scenario for a pup that young to actually be in a state of depression.

Glad to hear he was back to normal.
