My grrrrls, Bridie and Ceili are littermate sisters whom I have had since they were about 4 1/2 weeks old . They are now 10.

It may seem as if they want to kill each other during play but you will soon be able to tell the difference between "I'm-a-big-bad-doggy-and-I'm-gonna-get-you" play snarly and the "Back-off Sis, you are getting on my nerves" warning snarly and the "Okay, you pushed me one too many times" anger snarly.

Training was definitely more challenging and more time consuming. One of the grrrrls (interestingly the smaller of the two) is definitely her sisters protector ~ there are pros and cons to that of course. Bridie (the protector) will also chastise Ceili if Ceili is having a selective hearing moment.

Great advice given so far.
