Thank you for your response regarding my 5 month old female puppy Tilly annoying my 2 year old female dog Jess.
Just to answer your query we have had her since she was 7 weeks old. The trouble with Jess is that she is far too tolerant in that she will very rarely let Tilly know she is not happy therefore Tilly will not leave her alone.
We did try and crate Tilly when we first had her but we had over a week of crying day and night as she could see or hear the other dogs and hated being on her own so in the end during the night she would sleep in our cat box next to our bed and she was fine but she hates being left on her own.
DO you think I am doing the right thing in putting her in another room for 5 mins every time she bothers Jess as Jess is far too tolerant of her.
