Throwback to Sakari and Bella times... understand they were best friends, and so a much bigger canine dominating a smaller one looks mean, but Bella(the #portuguesewaterdog ) was much more dominant than Sakari. With playing, with food, etc. I think people get it confused when we see canines playing, but Bella here is in no harm. I will post another video when Bella is acting straight up irate to Sakari. I did, yes, intervene, in this play, b/c as any responsible guardian of living animals you are responsible for, you need to teach them boundaries. Sakari got a little more aggressive with her play than I like, so I corrected her with vocal cues that this is not acceptable. I've done the same with Bella when she was way too aggressive with her play with Sakari. (Sakari was around 4 years old here, so in wolfdog years, that's about 2 Dog years) My point here is, is that we need to be there as "parents", when we don't like behavior or rough play that we see. That's the only way anyone and anything learns.
