Customer Question
Hi I moved in...

Hi I moved in with my sister and now there are three dogs. Two females and one male. The male and my female is not spay. My female was is season which of course got the male excited. My question is when all dogs are in the same room my female growls at him fiercely so we keep them separated. My dog has to stay in my bedroom for hours then we switch and her dog is blocked in the hallway. How do we keep my dog from growling so we don't have to keep them apart and we can take down the wall?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is the matter with your dog?

She was in season for 3 weeks. What can I do to get her to stop growling at him when we have them in the same room? We do that to she if she is back to normal.

Veterinarian's Assistant: Where does your dog seem to hurt?

She doesn't, she just doesn't want him near her.

Veterinarian's Assistant: OK. No obvious pain. Can you see anything that looks wrong or different?

All I know is this is the first time that she went into season twice this year. I think she is about 4 years old. Plus we had to move here. We moved here in June of this year so having two new companions is new. All 3 dogs have gotten along until she went into season.

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is your dog eating normally?

Yes she is but he is not.

Veterinarian's Assistant: OK. No appetite problems. Is your dog having trouble peeing or pooing?

Not at all.

Veterinarian's Assistant: OK. No obvious problems there. How is your dog behaving differently?

Only around the male dog. She does not want him anywhere near her.

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the dog's name?

Hello and welcome. My name is ***** ***** I have been in the dog field for 25 years. I am a Therapy Dog & AKC Evaluator/trainer/ as well as a service dog trainer, specializing in behavior. It will be my pleasure to help you today. It may take a few minutes for me to type a personal response or type questions regarding your situation.

Unfortunately while she is in heat you cannot get her to stop growling at him and you should keep them separated. Eventually , if you are not going to breed her have her spayed because what will happen is eventually it will cause tension between all three dogs and you will have some pretty nasty fights.

Breeders keep their pups in separate kennels for reasons, so that they are not in close proximity to other dogs as unwanted pregnancies and unwanted fights will break out.

When you have dogs that live in the same home together it is always suggested that you send one of the dogs away while in season if you have no separate place to keep them.

If they are allowed together now and they continue to growl at each other, you are actually having them learn a specific behavior when they are around each other and this is to fight/ not like each other and it can continue long after this heat period.

What Customers are Saying:

I must tell you I found this site by accident and was amazed when I asked a question of the Veteranians online. I wish I could have found it sooner it could have made such a difference in the outcome of my pet's surgery. However, I am passing along the information to my sister-in-law (a cat-rescue person who is also a nurse), and perhaps it will help someone else who may experience the same problem. The doctor who answered my question was amazing, and while it didn't come it time to change the outcome of my situation, it is reassuring to know the caliber of Vets/Doctors that you have at JustAnswer. Thank you for being there.

I have a 1-year old maltese. He is normally very playful and really happy and (in many ways), the king of the castle. I have him trained to come, to sit, to lie down, and to stay. He is "ok" with these, but not always consistent. Lately, he has been snapping at me, which is so uncharateristic I took him to the vet to see if he was in some sort of pain, but he checked out ok. He has been snapping more and more -- like whenever my hand gets near his face or body. But -- he USED to love being cuddled to pieces. … read more
