Help! My dogs both want to be on my lap, now they are starting to snap at each other.

New dog is jealous of old dog.

Yup, my dogs were the same way. Just allow one at each side of you. Give both your attention. Pretty soon they'll get the idea that they don't have to compete for your affection.

Hi Kali! Are you getting some kind of weird vibe around here? It seems like this past week the hostility in this place has soared! Some people I was joking with a week ago, won't even answer a simple question, the moon? Lol! People are really paranoid here :,(

Wait, I think I know, I answered more Christian questions than usual. Now I'm being shunned Lol.

That's why I stay away. Too much drama. If you go to my old profile, you'll see. Not worth it. You either believe or you don't. What's the point in trying to convince someone otherwise? Rather just talk about wolves, Lol!

I think there's more going on really. Even Hippy got whip lashed a few times the past couple days, HIPPY!?!!! There's a Christian asking questions to stir things up with people the past week. Something is in the air for sure. I don't know but I think I need a vaca Lol! The crazies are out in full.

I guess it's because they think Marj is way cup or someone else. I don't really get it. I don't know why they let that get to them.

I kind of suspected that myself but then again, who cares? She was given a pretty bad time. I suspect a few people here are the same person with different accounts . This is my third account, but all were Kaligirl just written a little different. I don't know why, but those other two accounts, I got locked out of, weird!

I thought she was nice the few chances we did speak. Very strong Christian. You're right, many people seem to have several accounts and admit it. People are such bullies.

Yeah. I thought she was great. Still do (if you're here) When I was new here, she helped me out a lot. Miss her.
Report as
That's so sweet. Well maybe she is floating around somewhere somehow on here still. One never can tell with way cup. I'm pretty sure its not Marj though Lol ;) She doesn't sound like her much.
Did you read that answer I referred to? Zeesh! "child of the devil"? I never heard anything like that from her lol.

That comment you made on my answer about the pregnant woman being "rescued" from falling by O, you commented and I said there's lots if craziness, even on here, according to the people in the answer below, that one Lol. They were the ones talking about her. I didn't have much talk with her but it sure looks like she riled some feathers here Lol.

Let them both sit on your lap or don't let either, because if you only let one they will think you like he/she better.

Don't allow either one on your lap them. If they're gonna fight of jealousy, neither one deserves the comfort of your legs.

I would counter with: Have ONE come up on your lap at a time. Specifically DON'T let the other up. Then after a while alternate, have the second one up and the first one down. Make them see that YOU choose who, what, where, when, why. So YOU are seen as the alpha leader, and they have to do what makes YOU happy, not the other way around.

Definitely don't give positive reinforcement for the behavior. If one is snapping don't placate it by petting. You should probably stop petting the other one as well so the snapper doesn't stay jealous. Scold the dog that's snapping every time (don't ever relent even if it's tiresome). Dogs are smart and love you, they'll get the idea and behave if you make the message clear.
