    Hello!!!

    Lady is nearly a year old now and is still yet to come into season... She is doing some slightly odd things which I think could signify hormone changes but I'm not sure, she is guarding her bones/food more, she is spending a lot of time sniffing Poppy's lady garden and wants to play fight with Poppy a lot, whether Poppy wants to or not (it's actually quite funny watching Poppy try to get her to stop)

    I am reading book of the bitch at the moment but have only just got it a few days ago so am wading through it slowly...

    Does anyone else have any other explanations for her odd behaviour...is there anything I can/should do at this time???

    I have only ever had dogs before, Poppy & Lady are my first bitches!:blush2:

    All the bitches I know (bar one) are possessive over toys etc, I think that is pretty much par for the course with bitches. Keep a close eye on them flaring up over access to toys/chews etc and keep Lady in check

    The lady garden part (have to give you rep for that phrase!!) sounds like Lady is getting fruity and perhaps experiencing hormonal changes prior to her season. Unless Poppy is coming into season?

    Sorry LittleMissSunshine cant really offer any advice my bitches dont really change to much when coming into season, my male dog normally tells me when they are coming into season.

    And just to say i have 6 bitches and 1 male none of mine are possessive over toys they have a big box of toys and all share with no problems. :)
