Thank you for posting this, Marina. I’ll be following for sure.
The first thing that came to my mind was what is happening in the home in terms of leadership? Are the dogs just free roaming in the house and doing whatever they want? Are they sleeping in bed with the owner and sharing resting spaces? Is the owner accepting nudges (or obtrusive pushes) for affection from one or both dogs or is the owner controlling all limited resources in the home?
Both dogs sound overly dependent on affection and attention to feel secure.
