I have had Babs and Capone together more and more, they seem to be getting along fine but every once in a while Capone with poke Babs in the side of the head with his nose, she seems not to care, just gives him a look and walks away, is this an aggression thing, play thing or a dominance thing?

OH MY. I know this all too well. Jody (weim/lab) does this to EVERYONE.  Dogs, cats, humans, goats.  It doesn't matter, we are all subject to her punching.  I associate it with a human poking something to agitate it.  Enticing the other critter to play.

I agree with Sprocket....sounds like an invitation to play

 

I wouldn't put too much thought on it unless you see it escalate in even the smallest way. Keep us posted!

Aussie does that to Lucky when he wants her to play with him. He'll punch her in the side of the neck or head, and bounce around at the same time with his nub going. It usually gets her old self bouncing around with him.

My dogs poke each other like that when they want to play too. This is usually followed up with a couple good slaps :D
