  1. Maybe you should not put them together if they have been fighting a lot. Also, they must be vying for attention as to who is the more favorite between them two. Feed them separately. Watch out for warning signs of a brewing fight and stop them before they fight. [SIZE=3][COLOR=black][B]Tips for avoiding fights:[/B] [/COLOR][/SIZE] [SIZE=3][COLOR=black]* Behavior modification work with your dogs is essential. Be sure to watch for next week's tip, "Aggression Between Dogs in the Same Household." [/COLOR][/SIZE] [SIZE=3][COLOR=black]* Never allow any dog to achieve dominant status over any adult or child. If dogs always know their social ranking and are never allowed to challenge people, they will usually be good family members, advises Gary L. Clemons, DVM. [/COLOR][/SIZE] [SIZE=3][COLOR=black]* Feed dogs in separate areas, rooms or in their own crates. [/COLOR][/SIZE] [SIZE=3][COLOR=black]* Do not toss treats out to dogs. Instead, have each dog obey a command, such as sit, individually, and give the treat right after he/she obeys. [/COLOR][/SIZE] [SIZE=3][COLOR=black]* If any chance dogs will fight over toys, don't give the dogs toys unless they are in separate locations. [/COLOR][/SIZE] [SIZE=3][COLOR=black]* Do not give dogs toys that fanatically excite them. [/COLOR][/SIZE] [SIZE=3][COLOR=black]* Carry a small, automatic umbrella. You can pop this open between your dog and an incoming one of you fear a problem. It provides a surprise and a hiding place. [/COLOR][/SIZE] [SIZE=3][COLOR=black]* Some dog handlers carry water pistols and water cannons. [/COLOR][/SIZE] [SIZE=3][COLOR=black]* One Great Dane owner uses a cookie sheet to deter dogs from engaging in a fight. She has slipped the pan between the aggressing dogs, as well as banged on it to create a distracting noise. [/COLOR][/SIZE] [SIZE=3][COLOR=black]* One multiple dog owner always keeps a sturdy buckle collar on the dogs, which provides a sturdy handle if needed. [/COLOR][/SIZE] [SIZE=3][COLOR=black]* Don't permit tug-of-war or aggressive wrestling. These games can quickly escalate into a fight. [/COLOR][/SIZE] [SIZE=3][COLOR=black]* Don't give dogs rawhides, pig hooves or other highly coveted goodies. At the very least, don't allow dogs free access to them. The dogs are likely to fight over them. [/COLOR][/SIZE] [SIZE=3][COLOR=black][B]Ideas for breaking up a fight: [/B] [/COLOR][/SIZE] [SIZE=3][COLOR=black]The way fighting dogs should be separated depends on the individual dogs as well as their typical breed characteristics. For example, pit bull specialists advise use of a strong "breaking stick" inserted into the mouth of bull-breed dogs, but not for other kinds of dogs. [/COLOR][/SIZE] [SIZE=3][COLOR=black]Be aware that a dog embroiled in a fight might bite someone who grabs him or who comes between the fighting dogs. [/COLOR][/SIZE] [SIZE=3][COLOR=black]* Try pouring water over fighting dogs. Turning a hose on the dogs works better than dumping a container on them. [/COLOR][/SIZE] [SIZE=3][COLOR=black]* Some dogs will stop fighting if you squirt them with a water bottle filled with vinegar, which breaks their concentration. Some folks use water cannons, citronella spray, pepper spray ([I]note: pepper spray, or mace, can cause injury and worsen the situation[/I]), airhorns or even stun guns. [/COLOR][/SIZE] [SIZE=3][COLOR=black]* Avoid putting your hands near the dogs' heads or getting between them to avoid getting bitten yourself. If another person is available, Trish King recommends each person picks a dog and grabs its tail or hind legs, pulling back and up until the dog loosens its grip. The grabber should then move away quickly. There is some risk, since dogs will sometimes turn and bite whoever is hanging on to them.

  2. If you want to hire a dog walker make sure, as Hofmann said, to do your research. Do not just hire a dog walker because the pay id cheap or something. I go for the doggy day care. Your dog will enjoy more there. Leaving a dog all way will result to boredom which can lead to unacceptable habits.
  3. It's not always a dominance thing. When dogs get excited, they get it. Even though they are neutered.
  4. That was way way mean. Well mean is really an understatement. That was just unacceptable!!! Hitting the dog with a meat cleaver??? The dog did not do anything wrong. It is normal for him to bark since he was threatened. How in the world did you allow that meat cleaver to hit the head of your dog. Your daughter has really some serious problem. If you do not do anything about your daughter, who knows what worse things she can do to your dog. Tsktsktsk

    Grass ok?

    Some dogs resort to eating grass when they feel they are not getting enough nutrients. Eating grass once in a while is alright but make sure that there aren't any pesticides.

  8. At first I was grossed out in picking my dog's poop. But eventually it did not matter anymore.
  9. You seem to care about her though you are not used to doing such training. If you feel that you will not be able to take care of your pet, make sure that you will give her away to somebody who will surely take good care of her.
  10. My dog just loves all treat toys that I bring her.
  11. I never chained my dog. Not once. Chaining a dog will make it more aggressive. Chaining a dog for a short period of time, when a need arises is acceptable. But I don't agree on chaining dog for long periods of time. If they have a safe place to run around and play, why not let them? Just my 2 cents.
