Oh my, dis are not good bestest friend Nimby Sue...I is so afraid dat bwuvver Andrew an you is bof wantin ta be top doggo an dat nots goin ta work....I keeps bof a you in my prayers an hope things get sorted out!
 Mom here--I've never had boy dogs so I'm not sure what to say. Emmie and her kitties get along great when we're not here but as soon as we walk into the house, she starts chasing the little tomcat (she leaves the females alone)! It's as if she wants us to know that she's the boss of the house--or something like that. You'd think she'd learn that she has to get along with him all the time, but so far, she's being the typical terrier bullhead. Like you, we're hoping things get sorted out with time. We're sending positive thoughts your way and lots of prayers. Hang in there!
Love, Deb, Emmie, and Angel Kelsie

Uh...oh..a spat and maybe just Nimble and Andrew sorting who will be the boss. Maddie and Willie never had any nipper fighting sessions BUT when Emily came into the pack she challenged them both for top dog. Maddie had a way of just a stare down and dart with her head to let Emily know she was third in the pack order.
It might take some time for them to sort out the arrangement and soon be great pals.

Hannah and Maddie have had a few of those. It usually start with Hannah growling @ Maddie (Matilda) and then Maddie pins her down and doesn't bite her instead she wets the side of her neck or face. I calmly growl "NO" & gently pick Maddie up by the scruff of the neck and she lets go and Hannah gets up. I then put Maddie in another room for a minute to two until she settles down. Hannah when pinned down shrieks like a banshee. Maddie is 7.8kg and Hannah is a tiny 5.3kg. It doesn't happen very often just from time to time and it's always after Hannah starts growling and moves towards Maddie. I've seen Hannah's groomer and Westie breeder do the same to her dogs. Hannah is top dog.

Good luck.

Should have also mentioned our groomers Westie pinned down my older Westie Kelsi (pinned her down, no blood) and Brenda removed Annie by the scruff of the neck and shortly after Kelsi had a small seizure which was frightening. H&M have minor squabbles which they sort out between themselves but when it comes to pinning Hannah down I intervene. We don't want or need any more vet bills this year that's for sure.

I should add I always break it up as Hannah has had 2 bouts of pancreatitis resulting in overnight stays @ the vets since June and she weighs far less than Maddie, also Hannah is now lame in the leg that she had legge perthe's surgery all those years ago. She is somewhat more fragile these days. Brenda's scruff of the neck approach has worked well with Matilda and it doesn't hurt her in anyway.

It's what dogs do. I'm sure they sleep when you aren't home.

Annie- I know you are worried but I too, think they just need to sort it out. Especially since no blood was drawn and it was after they had been shut up all day and were running and getting excited!     Nimby is used to being top doggo and Andrew may need to be told a few times that he is down the list even if he is a big boy...  We will keep saying prayers for all of you.
