intro and dog advice needed please

Hello nesties.

I have two chocolate lab girls.  M is 7 and L is 2.  L loves her sister to pieces -- M not so much, she tolerates her as a member of the family. 

L is constantly licking/chewing on M's ears.  M is always walking around with soaking wet ears.  She has a history of ear problems and I am sure this is not helping the situation.  M never stops her. 

Any advice to get this to stop?  I don't want to put bitter apple on M's ears -- I think that would hurt her.

Re: intro and dog advice needed please

  • I would just correct and redirect her when you notice her doing it.  Offer a toy or chewie to distract her. 
  • bitter Apple shouldn't hurt her. I would recommend spraying a towel and wiping the ears with it. You correction and redirection is important, but the bitter Apple can assist you when you can't watch.
