Default Do you have jealous dogs?

Self explanatory!

Ever since getting Happy I am realizing just how jealous Juno is. omg! The past 2 weeks she has been the most affectionate dog ever! Who knew all I had to do was get another dog in order to bring out that behavior If I so much as look at Happy, Juno comes wiggling up over to me like oh hai I'm still here!! Or if I pet Happy.... guess who comes pushing her way in between us....

She's not like that if I give Lucy attention. But it's funny. Good thing they're all pretty easy going because I could easily see how that could create some serious snark!

Jonas is, which is pretty much why I will not have another small dog in his life time. He would literally implode and die if he saw me with another little guy in my lap.

Oh yeah! Buster is so jealous if we give Rudy attention. Dixie isn't super jealous but she might be when we meet my brother's new puppy tomorrow. Rudy? He was jealous when we brought Dixie home but got over himself. He might be jealous of the pup too, who knows. I don't think Buster will care much but we will see!

He's kinda jealous... not *overly* but he definitely wants my attention more, and is more cuddly/lovey with me too than he usually is.

Cali is, but then again, she's probably the biggest attention hog in history. She even gets jealous of the cats and comes running over as soon as she sees one getting some head rubs... she's gonna a swift whack to the face a few times by one of them in particular, but nothing can really deter her.

Moses, I don't think he gets jealous although I always feel bad if I'm petting Cali and he looks over... so I end up getting up and going to pet him. Aside from his incessant need to bark at strangers when they are in the driveway, he could likely be considered the "perfect couch dog".

Yep. In fact I used it to my benefit with Auggie a few times. Ohhhh Auggie it's right before your agility run, LET ME PET PAAAAYTOOOOOON...

Pepper used to be the worst but I don't let her get away with it so it has stopped for the most part. If I'm petting one of the boys, she would come up and SHOVE them out of the way and then stand there like =D TA-DAAAA. Ummm, no. That's not a way to get petted, that's a way to get ignored. (And that stuff totally broke Auggie's heart the first time she was here. "MOM, she won't play with me, she runs away from me, and she keeps PUSHING me!!" Poor little guy.) So that has by and large stopped. She will still come running if I call one of the other dogs because she wants attention instead, but I don't consider that rude really.

Auggie doesn't like to share playmates, and Payton doesn't always like to share Georgie. If Auggie and Georgie are playing, Payton will grab Georgie's tail and try to pull her away. (NOT kidding and maybe it makes me mean but I think it's hysterical - it's fair because Georgie will get jealous and grab Payton's back legs and try to drag HIM away, which is equally hysterical since she is less than half his size.) He will sometimes even do that when my mom is playing with Georgie, which doesn't go over well since Georgie is HER puppy... whoops.
Auggie, OTOH, likes to play with just one dog at a time - if he is playing with Georgie and Payton tries to join in, he tries to tell Payton off. If he's playing with Payton and GEORGIE tries to join in, he tries to tell Georgie off. Auggie is apparently not a multi-tasker LOL.

I dunno how Pepper is with playing since she has yet to really play with the other dogs. She's REALLY close but no go yet. Last night she would grab one end of the toy if the other dog had it (if I was also holding it =P) and I would let go and there would be ONE tug from the other dog before she realized the trick and dropped the toy... close. We'll see if she's a jealous player. She doesn't care if Payton and Auggie play, obviously, haha. They are always playing together and she just sits with me all "Snuuuuuggllllllllles!"

Caleb is the same way. He's worked the absolute best at run thrus after I've taken someone else's dog(s) through the course. He's even better when I worked a dog he doesn't know.

When we have canine visitors (Caleb is an only dog), Caleb falls back on his default "I need attention" behavior, and find something someplace in the house to bring me. I have discovered that's only when "attention seeking" dogs are visiting. When my friend's Lab stayed with us so I could show her, Caleb was fine. The best way to describe their interaction was that they hung out.

Yes, my boys are very jealous of each other. They both share me with Eden fine so it ends up being a musical chairs kind of gig. Eden + Limit OR Kastle with the other boy chewing a favorite toy. When the chewer takes a break to get a drink, the one that is cuddling steals the toy and the chewer takes his place on the couch with me LOL Only this week have they started to cuddle with me at the same time. They don't like to touch though. Although Eden can cuddle with/lay on/lick either of them with no problems.
