I got my goats yeaterday and once they got settled in I tied my GP next to thier pen. She bonded with them almost immediately. I have to tie her anyway as she is a wonderer so the teing part is nothing new to her, just in a different spot. My problem is her with the other dogs. She has been getting nasty and fighting with my heeler for the past month. I was sort of assuming it was a dominance thing, plus she is now in season. I will get her fixed as soon as she is out of season. The Heeler is not fixed either, bith are females. Now, she will not let the Heeler anywhere near the goats. That in it's self is not a bad thing, but she growls then attacks the Heeler if she can reach her. OK, she thinks she is protecting the goats. I get that. But, she continues it in the house. She will not let it go. The house is nuetral territory for goodness sakes! I have to bring the GP in at night as my neighboe does not like her barking. She can stay outside with the goats as long as she is quiet. The Heeler does not want to fight and tries to get away. GP was letting the puppy, who is a 3 month old male, by the pen. Today she attacked him! I don't really know what to do about this. I would hate to get rid of her as I have had her since she was 8 weeks old and I love her. She is now almost 3yrs old. But, if she does not quit this fighting, I may have to. I was hoping that getting her fixed would stop this, but now that the goats are here, I don't know. Any suggestions?
