Hudson is picking on Jackson, (who is unneutered, which elicits more dominance/submission behavior in general from my observation). Should I let this happen? How much of it? I find from observation that if a dog is dominating another dog in front of a third party that is also a dominant dog, the third party doesn't like that. I'm naturally also the same way and have often acted as that third party. With the dogs, I do let a bit of the dominance go on before I step in to make the bully feel like a victim; if the victim learns how to stand up for himself effectively, that is an important social skill that will empower him for the rest of his life, and if I step in too early, I can rob them of that learning experience. If I don't see him able to stand up for himself, however, I will step in.

Since this video, Jackson has turned around and briefly attacked Hudson, in order to stop him, which I was very proud of. So letting Hudson push just a bit on Jackson has let Jackson find the solution to being humped, which is empowering to him. I'll also back Jackson up if he can't effectively stop the bullying. (This is a different situation than if two dogs wanted to compete, in which case I would likely let it happen until a certain point when I would come in and own the situation, which would let them both surrender to an even higher power and feel safe. This is also more complicated if you are at a dog park). I hope everyone has a wonderful week. Much Love.
