Ugh! I am at my WIT'S END as to what to do about Seamus pulling Kirby's tail!
If Kirby were any other dog, this might be okay, but he's a show dog and he needs his puffage on his tail! When Seamus pulls at his tail, he's taking out HUGE bits of fur and now Kirby's tail is starting to look very pitiful indeed!
We've tried fussing at him every time he does it, but fussing is almost rather futile since it can only work when we SEE Seamus pulling Kirby's tail. All it takes is 5 seconds for Seamus and Kirby to run into the front yard faster than we can can he's already yanked out hair from Kirby's tail.
We've tried letting them out separately, but this is no good because 9 times out of 10, Seamus won't potty if Kirby's not there to escort him around the yard.
Honestly, guys, do you have any suggestions for this other than putting Tabasco sauce on Kirby's tail?
(Joking on that one--I don't want a red hot Samoyed!
) Sami is tempted to muzzle the Turdie (Seamus) so he CAN'T yank at Kirby's tail. I'm not so certain on this, but if we can't find any other solution, we might just have to muzzle him when they go outside to potty because he's really damaging Kirby's tail and it takes a long time for those hairs to grow back.
Any advice and hair growth wishes to Kirby are appreciated!
