    Hello, I am new to the forum and to labs. I have a 7 year old Cavachon who loves other dogs, especially labradors, hence us getting Hovis who is now 12 weeks. He is fabulous and we adore him already. He sleeps really well and consistently goes outside to toilet. The boys are doing ok except Hovis insists on nipping Archie and seems to love his fluffy tail, he has even pulled some hair out! We have had Archie’s fur shaved off to stop Hovis from pulling him by it. Is there anything we can do to stop the nipping?

    Hi Annie, welcome to the forum :)

    Your boys sound lovely! Hovis is such a good name.

    We've got an article about introducing puppies and older dogs here on our main site. Hovis is just behaving like any normal puppy, so the most important thing you can do while he's growing up is make sure that Archie can get away somewhere Hovis can't follow, whenever he wants a break from it all :)

    Good luck, and let us know how you get on!
