Kimberly: It sounds like you have a leader of the pack in your pack and your parents have a leader in their pack. So, the two leaders are trying to work out who is going to be leader of the together pack that has been created. I'm sorry on not really an expert on the topic, but have you tried to introduce your pets from a distance? Food rewards? Have you tried to introduce on different territory like a dog park or some place where the dogs wouldn't be territorial and protective?

We have two dogs and for the most part they get along. Our female however, is very unsociable with other dogs, especially if our male is close by. Neither one of them are fixed/spayed.


Be patient and consistent with your efforts. I'm sure some kind of solution will present itself and the problem with get remedied. Don't loose hope.

We have two dogs that get along for the most part. Our male dog owes everything: toys, food, bones etc. Even though I give them each something, he always takes it away from our female so he has nothing. Our females doesn't fuss about this much unless it's her food. They have had a few fights involving food in which our male dog suffers minor wounds. I have begun separating them at meal time protecting our female so our male can't threaten to take her food. Well, he can threaten but cannot accomplish his threats. This has worked out well and our male seems to know not to even bother her anymore. Thanks for the tips.


I still haven't found a solution for him needing to own everything though.


As for taking turns, they both think they have the same name. So they both work at doing the action to be rewarded.

I have a problem if anyone can help me please!!!! I had to move back to my parents house with my 3 dogs 2 pitbulls and 1 chwawa. My parents have 2 boxers 1 rottie mix. So we had to seaperate my male pit with my parents dogs. My female use to get along with my parents dogs just fine she played with them all the time. But a few months ago she got in afight with my female boxer. It wasnt a pretty sight. so I got my female fix and have to tie her up and put her ib the same cage as my male. She has to be tied because she jumped the 10 foot fence we put to separate them so for there safty it had to be done. But some times she breakes out and one of them ( boxer or pit) get hurt. Why is this happaning and what can I do to fix it. Please some one help me.!!!!

Great tips. Just be careful that if your dog is not jealous not to take it for granted. He needs attention too!

We've used some of these same tips to prevent problems between our dogs, and they really do work. It just takes consistency and working on these things EVERY SINGLE DAY.
