Hi All

From what I can see, this seems to be a very popular forum! I am glad to be part of it. I have 3 dogs, a border collie I adore, a mini dashaund (bought as such, but seems to have more mini pincher than dashaund in her) and new to the family, a fox terrier. I have two problems with my canine family:

(1) My border collie is very sensitive and gets very easily upset, withdraws and hides away for ages. All coaxing, attention and loving seem to make the problem worse.

(2) My new fox terrier has redefined the "three's a crowd" scenario. She is constantly picking fights with the other two, then they gang up on her, then she comes running to me for "protection"

I would love to hear your comments!

Thanks.

Welcome and it sounds like you have your hands full !! I used to have border collies and they were rather touchy also, they are just too plain smart and want to train thier human perfectly. I have a huge black lab Lucifer, a little yorkiepoo GUapo and my Poochon Sophie. They get in little spats but nothing serious and since Lucifer is the baby, even though he outweighs the others by over 80 lbs, he is low man on the totem pole and I actually think he doesnt know he is big At least not when he is tattling on Sophie and Guapo by leaping into MY lap. Hopefully for your sake the dogs will learn thier positions in the household and things will settle down. GOOD LUCK

Hello and welcome! :)
Abbylynn my Dobie/Rott is bottom dog ... a very soft dog. Then there is Blu Boy the middle man ... and then there is the new rescue Eddee who is trying to be top dog by taking Leeo's prior position. Lol!

I am sure you will find much good advice here to help you with your needs. :)
