Thread: Help .. My Two Females Are Fighting

  1. #11


    Good to hear you are willing to research and possibly change your mind. It is nice to encounter someone so willing to do what needs to be done to help their dogs, even if it involves something they have never done before or may not have believe in before.

    Best of luck and keep us updated.

    PS. Hya always has fantastic links.

    One of the main reasons I will never sell two siblings together is because they are the same age, strength etc and will very often fight or perhaps a better word is have disagreements and niggles at each other.

    No one ends up at the vets or anything and it's over quickly or a hose can disburse them but still how they act with each other and how they act with older or younger dogs is different. Two siblings are competing with each other more often than not.

    My ideal world wouldn't include two bitches with only 6 months apart in age.

    I like about 18 months apart in age between my dogs/bitches, which is why I only breed every 18 months - two years. I like harmony in my house.

    If the trigger for the aggression is you, remove yourself each and every time it starts. I imagine they've got a good covering of hair and with the jaw shape they will be going well to get a good grip on each other, don't interfere hopefully they can sort it out.

    I had a change in leadership just recently and I had to let it play out as hard as it was to watch and luckily no dog needed vet treatment which may have been the case if they had to have a second chance at sorting it out.

    I have THREE siblings here, 1 male and 2 desexed females as well as their mother.
    The "pups" are two years old at the end of the month.
    Yep I have spats here. The mother at times over disciplins the 2 females leading to the odd puncture on their faces and then she and the others proceed to keep them licked clean.

    I find that having the space and places to get away from each other if so desired works well.
    I just yell when I hear the yelping and it stops with usually no damage.
    The male is now doing this to his mother too and I break it up with a yell but secretly think "Good, take some of your own medicine you little cow)

    I agree with MAC's suggestions.

    I like the quick fix...if fighting over a bone..take the bone away etc.

    I am not a great believer in at the sign of any trouble get in a behaviourist. Googling can give you many ideas to try and forum help first before this step could need to be taken.

    You will know a real fight when you see it. I have had a couple of those and the rest are just spats. I think we make it worse if we feel like we have to intervene all the time..

    Any posts made under the name of Di_dee1 one can be used by anyone as I do not give a rats.
