Oh happy day!!!!! /forums/images/icons/grin.gif My bro will take my doggie for a little while so I won't have to give her away! /forums/images/icons/grin.gif Now, I'd like some tips on getting her to assume the non-alpha female role. I'm thinking, his dominate dog needs to be alone with her alread in the yard when my dog goes over. That way, it'll be "shelby's" yard instead of my dog thinking the land is not claimed. Any ideas?
