The Danger Of A Jealous Dog

In the case of jealousy the mind of a dog works in almost an identical way to that
of a human being. It wants the full attention and love of its owner whether the
jealousy occurs only when another dog enters the home or when the beloved
owner talks to another dog outside, or whether the jealousy is aimed at another
person in the home. The same driving force is at the root of the evil in all of
these cases: the intention of the dog to reign alone and supreme in his

The guarding instinct so prevalent in some breeds has its roots in the same sort
of thing; a desire to let no one enter the precincts of his master or mistress.
Jealousy nearly always takes the form of a show of viciousness toward the dog
or person the animal is jealous of. Quite often it is a mild form of jealousy and
only involves its bone, toy or the piece of rug that it is fond of. It jealously guards
them and woe betide anyone trying to take that object away.

This jealousy is particularly pronounced when puppies are reared and kept in the
household. As the puppy reaches the age of about three months the mother will
begin to feel jealous as her maternal instinct fades and the time draws near for
another heat. In spite of the attempt to treat both dogs equally and always to talk
to both at the same time, feeding both at the same time and exercising both
together, the jealousy continues to grow.

Correction works at first and then bit by bit grows less effective. In the dog's
mind a usurper has entered the scene, and, as in the wild state, it is trying to turn
the young out of the nest. As she fails to get rid of the now grown up pup, her
temper gets worse and worse in the effort to dislodge the now adult and
unwanted member of the household. She becomes more and more thwarted as
her owner attempts to make the newcomer as welcome as the old established
member. Often she will turn on her owner when he is trying to make peace, as if
she were trying to impress an ignorant person that it was time the youngster went
out into the world to fend for itself.

If you are a really good handler your training methods will be good enough to
make both dogs obey the command "Leave" when they are in your presence.
The danger lies in the times you leave the dogs together on their own, for the
slightest boldness on the part of the youngster in approaching the older one's
basket or toy, etc., will infuriate the older dog, and she will set on the youngster
tooth and nail.
