You can sort out who will be your top dog, but it's very difficult to make them sort it out the way you want it between themselves. Here, we pretty much let them establish their own order, but we step in to keep it civil. If someone gets growly or owly or too pushy, we break it up, and eventually that sort of behavior lessens dramatically. Just make sure they both get attention and their own special time with you so they both feel blessed!
