I have a bitch of 28 months, her father is border collie and his mom pitbull. Everything was fine until he makes more in a month, I fight evil with a boxer who also lives in the house. Then we took a walk to a farmhouse where there were more dogs and I fight with each of them and finally after almost 15 days without going out to the street alone because I was in zeal to bash a puppy that you always juice. He was always very independent and with many friends, of a sudden change. Yesterday again I fight with the boxer and ended up getting hurt. They are separated, one inside and the other on the bottom of the house. Not to do, and they insist on encounter but it gives us a lot of fear. What would you recommend?

But one thing I know because I have always lived in their company. If your behavior changed as a result of that first fight you tell you're going to have to put a lot of attention to corregirsela, very firmly you're going to have to scold every time I try to confront other dogs, constantly, until your authority is imposed on your instinct. It is a fight of stubbornness. In the meantime, you can practice exercises with it, ten or fifteen minutes a day where you teach to sit, to stay still in one place, while you move, and things like that. In these sessions you will get the authority, will premium with a treat when they do well, and discipline when you do wrong. And if you have a chance of doing the same thing with the other dog that lives with her, the better. As you achieve any progress with them (which you can achieve quickly ; in three or four days you'll see results) I invite you to joining to the two in the class daily. Persevere for a month or two and you will see how to ten minutes a day give spectacular results. These classes, well kept, made the dogs happy, makes them feel wanted because in the end, they like having your attention. In terms of fights, this is important to you, you never goals to separate two dogs to not have the leash and can pull them up to reasonable distance. And needless to say, don'T hit while fighting, that still stirs up more to the dog so he can feel even more attacked. The remedy in such situations is to anticipate their actions, and impose your authority with a voice, a thick voice. Be very vigilant so that the situation does not occur. And in the event that the only thing recommended is a jug of water, or a pozal, or a hose down of water. That if it helps that catches the dog by surprise and disturbs the fight. But of course, you're not going to go out there with a pozal of water. But if you have it to hand at home, do not hesitate, instead of staying facing as they fight without daring to intervene, salt running in search of a pozal of water. Luck.
The first thing you have to do is to determine which of the 2 bitches is or can be dominant and which submissive. Once you have determined this you must ALWAYS favour the dominant, although ashamed. This means that the dominant has to eat before, sleep in a higher level if possible, to receive the caresses of the first to enter the house, etc In terms of the dispute if you had an area with a fence would be perfect, through the fence must get used to the smell, look and study the body language of one another and learn to establish dominance and the relationship is not violent. This process can speed up to be present on the fence and knock down or turn around( the back) towards the fence, thus presenting a easy way to encourage using the sense of smell more than sight, that is something very very important. At the time of the walks the same dynamic, if you walk separate first the dominant if they are together, the strap longer for the dominant. Also you must look at who started the dispute and who is immediately throw it to the ground face up with the neck extended, and maintaining this posture for a while and even let the other smell it without getting to leave that to chew on. You can also avail yourself of the education herd, is to go to a place where she is new and the dogs that go there are known to be possible are educated and of greater size, weight, or complexion she. In the event that this situation is displayed hostile without warning or provocation, you must throw it to the floor in a position of submission again, and if possible, muzzle to limit the entirety of their defense and make it vulnerable, without ever letting the rest of the dogs to abuse her, just the smell. He also understands that he is young and with a zeal which means great a burden hormone so you have to reinforce positive behaviors like "castigas" the negative.
