Hi! We recently adopted an 8 wk old boxer puppy from a rescue after her mom had died at 1wk. I grew up with boxers and knew that someday I wanted my kids to have one so we jumped at the opportunity to grab her up. My boys are 5 and 1.5 and the only real contact they have had w dogs is with two non kid friendly ones owned by my inlaws. They have both been snapped at and my youngest was nipped twice, which has caused some fear for both of them around dogs. After we brought Fräulein home, she began to try and establish her pack order over both of them, but mostly my little one. We have worked with her on leaving him alone and not jumping on him, but she has growled and knocked him down and nipped his face. She cannot be off her leash inside at all because of her tendencies to go after the boys with the slightest movement. My youngest has become so scared to let her near him if she is awake and we keep trying to work with him on letting her do kisses but no luck so far. Are there any tips out there for how to teach my youngest not to be afraid of our puppy? It is starting to cause so much stress that we are at a point of discussing if this is the best place for her, which kills me to think about.
