    Default Great advice

    As I walked across the square in front of the library today, a dog fight broke out right in front of me. Looked like the instigator had managed to pull the leash out of his owners hand and went straight for a dog that was sitting with his owner at a bench. He obviously made a bit of a miscalculation because even though he was the bigger dog, the other dog won as far as determination goes. The attacker let go as soon as his owner grabbed him by the collar, but the dog he attacked would not let go of his ear.

    His owner was pulling his collar to no avail as I and another bystander watched on, wondering what to do.

    Then I remembered the advice I read here and told him "Grab his hind legs! Lift his hind legs off the ground!" He finally understood what I was saying and lifted his dog's backside up and he immediately let go of the other dog.

    That was the first time I had ever seen this put into practice and it sure worked!

    Both dogs were fine and both owners apologised to eachother.

    Yep.....Nev Allen taught me that when we where introducing Bronx and Mojo.

    Bronx was a bit of a bugger but a quick yank on the back leg would always make himm pull his head in .

    I tried to do that once with a border collie who decided a certain brown lab was not allowed to sniff a coconut that had washed up on the beach (who knows how that got to an Adelaide beach but there you go).

    Do you think we could catch that damn BC? Nope - way too good at keeping his back end away from us while having a go at the lab.

    I was given this advice by a vet about 20 years ago. He said it's about removing the dog's purchase and balance from the ground (which is all in his hind legs). I've used it twice since then, with instant success both times - the last time probably saved a Corgis life - from a big male Rotti in the prime of his life. Extremely useful tip

    IVe used it numerous times. ITs worked every time, to separate my play fighters, when its gotten out of hand.

    LOL @ bordercollie keeping the back end away. < respect for the BC. You gotta love their brains!

    This will certainly come in handy as Gracie likes to pick battles she cannot win

    Maggie is peaceable but there is a near dog which rushes over with hackles up. Will keep this in mind.
