Recently introduced 18 month bitch to a 8 week puppy to act as a play mate for her when we're not present. The bitch has been spoiled and is very needy therefore the introduction of puppy in what she shes as her house made her sulk and look heartbroken for which i feel guilty for.
The puppy is at a stage where he is fascinated by everything but has settled well in that he minds his own business with regards to the older dog. Our bitch likes to sniff the puppy constantly, i feel like he is to young to submit? When this happens the puppy chases and starts to nip. Their are periods of barking between the two.
I just wanted tips on how to improve the situation. If this is common or are these two just not compatible.
