Okay everyone!!! So, has anyone else had problems having their pets "get along?"

I recently adopted a sweet little puppy, Snowflake, into my home. I currently have another bigger doggy (King Cavalier Spaniel), Pepper, and a very spoiled kitty, Pirate. Pirate's basically the "man" of the house, so he pretty much bosses around Pepper. So when Snowflake came along, I was pretty much hoping she'd get used to the way my house runs, such as their bath schedules and feeding times, and basically just the way my other pets react. Well, I guess I was wrong. At the kennel, Snowflake was so excited and happy I just HAD to buy her. When she got home, she was so shy around Pepper and Pirate! I threw some toys to play, and the other pets just jumped all over her, so Snowflake got scared and hid, but I know the other two are just playing around. Also, the deal is, when I throw a toy, they have to let Pirate get to it first, but Snowflake didn't know, so she ran up as soon as I threw it on the ground. She realized it was a bad idea when Pirate started hissing at her, so she whimpered, dropped the toy, and hid. Now she is traumatized of Pirate. And I know Pepper is trying to be a nice friend, but when they're hungry, it's like Snowflake doesn't matter anymore, and the other two just run up to the bowl and leave Snowflake to drink/eat the "leftovers." I don't know why Snowflake suddenly got so shy, she's absolutely adorable and friendly to me, she doesn't bark or growl at me or anything, it's just that she seems to be shy around other animals. I take her for walks regularly and she has friends outside of the house, but she's just not getting used to the fact that Pepper and Pirate are at home. Does anybody know what I can do to make her feel less uncomfortable and more "at-home?" Does she feel as if she's being neglected? I buy her toys all the time, but do you think she wants more? I'm afraid Pepper and Pirate will start pushing her around more than they do know. Thanks!

Also, Snowflake is doing very poorly at her training although we've been going out pretty much everyday. She has a lot of points with me as well. Does it have to do with the fact that she's not having fun at home? Is that affecting the way she reacts with her training, or is it an entirely different story. With Pepper, her training was very fast and effective, she didn't have a problem at all. Do you think I should maybe try a different method of training, something different than the way I taught Pepper?

hmmmm ._.
idk about buying MORE toys for your dog, just make sure she gets some lovely petting from you. i think there's a point when you call your dog and when they run up to you, they either "climb" on you and lick or sniff you or act excited to see you. that's when you're spending a lot of time with your pets (aside from cats because cats act like they're too cool for their owners lol). but if they're not climbing on you, it's probably because you haven't been spending time with it recently.

if you need to put out another bowl of food when the other dog is done eating, then do so (that is, if your dog really isn't getting enough food to eat). As the owner, it's your job to make sure they're eating healthy and drinking water to become full. hunger plays a part in your dogs' performance in competitions.

also, I never paid much attention to pet behaviors and how they mix with OTHER pets in the house until recently, but im pretty sure your other pets' attitudes can have an effect on your new dog. if it's really bad you might need to put one of your pets in the hotel and see how your new dog deals with just one of them. if it doesn't go well, switch the pets again and see how they deal. if it's still not well, you might wanna consider getting a new pet if you have the money. Or keep the other mean pets out the house while your playing with your new one :/

When you go the kennel didn't you check the dogs personality. Each dog right before you buy them say's if there shy or get along with other dogs or humans or both. Snowflake might be cute but was probably one of the dogs with a shy personality its not a bad thing just might take her a while longer to get used to your other dog & cat. Have them play with toys in the house that works with my dogs & cats in the game.

Happy Gaming! (^_^)

Yes, I did look at Snowflake's personality, but it didn't mention anything about her being shy!

Hey if your dog knows how to sit you are half way there. When your dog sits pick up his paw and lift it up slightly when the vioce thing comes up say “paw” and if your pet gets it right give it a treat.

If I made no sense when you click on your dogs needs profile click on tricks then click walkthrough and it shows you how to do it.
I hope I helped

I have four puppies and two cats. My puppies are: Lucy, a black and tan German Shepherd, Pepper, a cream and white Sheltie, Aurora, a solid white Sheltie, and Luna, a light grey and white Sheltie. My kittens are Callen, a female solid off white, and Cricket, a female calico. So far, Lucy's the only one I've had any luck training, she knows all her tricks, we're at the Master Cup in Lure Coursing, and I finally won the Disk Cup. My real dog (also a Sheltie, named Phoenix) chewed up my AR cards so I can't do the Obiediance Cups.

Hi Guys!

I just adopted the cutest agouti and white husky pup. I have name him Skye, and I have high hopes for him in the lure course and frisbee toss. I have no AR cards, so I cannot do obedience. I will train him, though.

But does anybody want to be friends on Nintendogs?

@barbiegurl777 I don't really know. Hahah I fail. I can add you now and then maybe our dogs can meet. My husky pup just won the junior lure course and he wants a friend.

Zaphod isn't afraid of gender stereotypes! Wear that rose proudly my boy!

Here's a photo of my boy winning his first Comp, the Obedience Trial

And this adorable Pomeranian I randomly found at the kennel, it's so cute
