LOL only Venus isn't intimidated by his growl. She found a piece of meat on the floor after dinner and went to show it off to him. Damn she was mad when he took it from her. Either luck or stealthy puppy skill, he was busy doing something else when she dove head first into his bag of kibble...

More food assertion thoughts.. Tonight, I gated Otto in the galley kitchen with me. He likes to watch me cook and his water & food are in the galley. 9 week old Venus is just starting on solid kibble today so I had put her food down in the main part of the kitchen so I could watch her.

The gate's only 2' tall but Otto knows he's not to jump gates because there's a gate across my bedroom at night so he doesn't chase the cat at 4am.

Otto had gobbled up his food as usual. Venus ate part of her food then went to play with her toys. She would nibble, stand on the gate talking to me then go back to playing.

Otto sat there on the other side of the gate just watching her food. I told him once that's hers and to leave it alone. I was watchful of him but pleased he did the right thing.

Yesterday, he'd growl if she tried to get in the water dish while he was drinking. I kept redirecting her to her own tip proof water bowl on the floor. Today, they were both in his water and he was fine with that.

Not about food assertion but Otto also played tug with the puppy a couple times today, yesterday he was sharing the beloved bumpy ball. Even though he knows it's his, he shared. LOL he also rolled her over in the sand pile a couple times for getting to much in his face.
