Year Old Female GSD Dominance Issues?? - 12/27/2005
I have two wonderful GSD's. My first is a beautiful male who is two years old. I got an adorable female a year ago who just turned one Nov. 1. My male is extremely gentle, he's about 110 pounds of "baby". The female is about 75lbs now and the "kissiest" dogs I've ever seen. Her tongue to trying to lick you before she is even close. They get along wonderfully but if there are toys or bones on the floor my female will "guard" them and growl and chase the male away. She does this with members of our family as well at times. She shows her teeth and growls at the male, he slinks away. She will even keep him from his own food bowl at times. He "loves" her but I feel SO bad for him when she does this. Is it normal? Can we get it to stop? She will guard the kids and their stuffed animals at times too, she'll just kind of lay and watch and if she thinks he's too close she'll get up and chase him off. She does not bite him to "hurt" him but he obviously knows she means "get away". What do I do??? My poor gentle male is a big teddy bear, he is VERY protective of all of us when it comes to strangers approaching the house or vehicles but when its just us at home he lets her take over. Neither have ever attacked or bite anyone, they are the greatest animals I have ever known but I just wonder if what she is doing is normal. I was raised with GSD's but they lived outdoors. Both my babies are in the house and treated like children. Any info or advice?

Just a note to my own message, I didn't not mean the female growls at family members, she "guards" us sometimes from the male dog. ANY of us could take her toys or bones and she would do nothing. She just at times does not want him to come near someone if she is by them or in her "mood" My husband says she is just a "moody" woman. UGGGGHHHHH
