Advice needed please!
I have to female dogs, one is a fox terrier and the other one a jack russel. The problem is since the fox terrier got on heat (about three months ago) she keeps spanking the smaller one. At first I thought its fine its nature’s way but its getting to a point where she is hurting the little one NOW the jack russel is on heat and my fox terrier is worse. I don’t know what to do as its very disturbing to watch its almost as if she is bullying the little one.
Is this behaviour normal and what should I do, will fixing the fox terrier help…and will it help to prevent her from hurting the little one?
