intact male Hungarian Pointer........BAILEY
Bailey and Tobi have been going on walks in the hills now for six months from time to time. Tobi's owners are first time dog people and are really great with their dog.
About a month ago, on our walks, I started noticing Tobi starting to "test" Bailey. It was the little things an intact male will do to test his new "doghood". I told the owners that one day the two dogs would have to work it out. This type of behavior repeated itself over maybe five walks.
Two weeks ago, on a walk in the hills with Chloe and another female Vizsla, it was the day. I could almost tell from the start that it would be this morning that the testosterone would kick in and things would be settled. I mentioned this to Tobi's owner as the walk began.
After a great 90 minute walk in the Sunol Regional Park it was "put up or shut up" time between Bailey and Tobi.
I'll let Tobi's owner explain: ( I had asked her to put it in her words)
