I have a 17 year old blue front male amazon, Kwaxi. Also now have a 15 month old German Shepherd, Adira. Theyve been mostly tolerating each other. However, they are somewhat jealous of my attention so I try to be equitable and it's worked so far. However, recently, when Adira comes in from a walk and I make her stay still so I can wipe her paws, Kwaxi has decided it is the time to lean off his cage (close to the sliding glass doors she uses to come in from the back yard -- our only choice) with beak open and tease her. Then Adira, of course, responds by moving toward him and "herding" him back into cage. I am discouraging this, but am not being real successful. Yesterday I took Kwaxi off cage and put him on top of a chair about 20 ft away during this process. When I returned to place him back on cage, he bit me (not real hard, but enough to draw a bit of blood). So, I am asking for any and all advice about managing both of them. Thanks!
