Shikoku Ken Discussion
Shikoku bad behavior
Hi guys, hoping to probe the wealth of knowledge on the forum for some help.

Situation: My girlfriend and I are at a point where we are thinking about moving in together. Up until now her dog and mine have gotten along amazingly. Jess will keep Miya on the nights that I work so that's she's not alone at home which has worked it great for several months now. However, 2 weeks ago Jess came home to her dog bleeding from 2 bites, courtesy of Miya. After patching him up and watching them closely for a week without any signs of aggression, we chalked it up playing that got out of control.

However, I went out of town for a just over a week and she's been snapping at him and left a good sized scratch on his belly while I was gone. She's also dug holes all over Jess's yard. Obviously we are super concerned. Neither one of them have EVER been aggressive at all. She doesn't have any injuries which makes it seem one sided (he's a pit/lab mix and her size). She was well socialized with other dogs as a pup, does well at dog parks, and usually just likes to play.

Does anyone else's Shikoku act out if you are gone long periods? Any tips on how to help Miya get over this? Any tips on blending a 2 dog household like this with minimal blood and casualties?
