    Ok, Little bit of help needed,

    Otis and Dora love each other :) which im very pleased about, However when they are playing it just seems to be a game of how long can Otis hang off Dora's flubbers untill she shakes him of, They both enjoy this game massively.

    My question is , How do i stop it as 1, i dont want it carrying on in to adulthood as could get nasty 2, dont want Dora to be left with scar's from nippy croccateeth

    Or should i just leave Dora to sort it out as she see's fit.

    I would leave her to sort it out
    Dillon hangs off of Rockys ears and pull Willows feathers out.
    I do keep an eye on them because like youself I dont want him ruining Willows appearance by wrecking her tail.
    But I do let them sort it out amongst themselves
    They just walk away when puppy becomes too much
    Well apart from Percy, Percy doesnt put up with his puppy croco antics in the first place and just walks away from Dillon at all times.

    Bless my Dora tug toy :) , Although she does hase him and shove her face in his so its her own fault , I have tried shoving a tuggy toy between them which gives Dora's chops a rest for 2 mins LOL.

    I guess this is the joys of a multi-dog household :)
