I just got a new female dog a few weeks ago. The new dog and my current male dog are getting along great!! Not a single conflict or growl. But the new (smaller) one keeps stealing my current dogs bones/toys away from him. It seems like a game... they go steal each others and play tug-a-war and run after each other... they have fun but the smaller one just keeps taking things away from my current dog (he doesnt growl or anything). Am I suppose to let her? And let him stick up for himself? Or stop her? And say No? I've been stopping her because I dont want her to think its OK, but I also want him to learn to stick up for himself. It's a not a huge issue, because no one seems to be upset about it but me... LOL... but I dont want her to keep taking things from him. Any time I give them both something... even if its identical... she takes it from him. I dont know if she is trying to make a game of it... but sometimes he is like "hey! that's mine!!" and I feel bad!
TIA for advice!!
