Hi. About a week ago I got a puppy that is about a year old. The person I
got her from found her so he isn't sure of the breed. The vet says it

might
be a Pit bull / Beagle, but I think it might be a Pit Bull / Dalmation (

She
is large with spots on her skin that you can see through her fur. My
question is about her playing with my Portuguese Water Dog. He's about 8
months old, about 30 lbs smaller than her. The play is a bit rough and our
PWC ends up yelping. Is there a way to make them more friendly towards

each
other? Also She ( Pit Bull) also steels anything he plays with. What can

be
done about that? Let me know. Thank you.

when play gets too rough, to the point that the pit is hurting the pwd, a
simple time out should work. stop thier play put the pit mix in a room or his
crate for a little bit (obviously if the pit is being the rough one). it won't
take too long for the dog to make the connection that being too rough means no
more play time.

you can also use a mild aversive to "get her attention" when she gets too
rough. i have two pit bulls, and they tend to play pretty rough sometimes.
i use a squirt bottle filled with water and a touch of vinegar, and usually
i don't even have to squirt them anymore, they just look at me when they
start getting rough and tone it down, because they know they'll get
squirted.

and yes, this assumes that you'll supervise their play all the time.

Lots of dogs have spots on their
skin and, if the coat is light and/or
sparse enough, you can see them.
This has nothing to do with being
part Dalmatian.

As for your actual query, when
and why does your PWD yelp
and what does the supposed
Pit Mix do in response to the
yelping?
