Re: Sudden Aggressiveness towards the other.

I wanted to post an Update on here and thank everyone for the suggestions. After being very strict about how much time they got to spend together we started giving them more time loose in the house and yard together while under our supervision, never left alone. We started this on Labor Day weekend ...

Re: Sudden Aggressiveness towards the other.

Just as long as you pay close attention to both of their body languages. Make sure that one is not fearful or uncomfortable with the other. yeah, they are being supervised. So far so good. They still spend most of the day separated, this is just to slowly get them used to being loose in the room to...

Re: Sudden Aggressiveness towards the other.

If they haven't been desensitized to the muzzles you're only going to make matters worse. Did you go from no muzzles on your dogs-to muzzles? Or did you slow work up to them wearing them? Also, what's the point of muzzling them and having them around each other? To stop the fighting? Forcing them t...

Re: Sudden Aggressiveness towards the other.

Update: We had been keeping them separate since my last post. Only letting them be together in the back of the truck when going to and from our hikes. When they know it is hiking time they seem to be one track mind focused on the hike, not each-other. I always keep them tied up in the back of the tr...

Re: Sudden Aggressiveness towards the other.

so things have not progressed well, after two weeks we introduced them together after a long hike since they would be a little bit more tired and perhaps more mellow. Things went well for two days, and then while being supervised in the same room with my wife, while she was working (she works from h...

Re: Sudden Aggressiveness towards the other.

Are they leashed on their hikes? Walking side-by-side on leashes is a good way for them to have supervised socialisation, with each other and with other dogs. Just be aware that off-lead could lead to snarking. My male dog tends to form what you could almost call temporary alliances with other dogs...

Re: Sudden Aggressiveness towards the other.

Update:

We took them on a nice long hike today and they did great on the trail, walked side by side like normal. We kept them separated on the truck ride to and from the trail, and they are still separated at home. So far so good. They even met a few dogs like normal and acted like they always do.

Re: Sudden Aggressiveness towards the other.

When the pool guy came at noon I moved Abi into the house and she went into the crate and I locked her there, She is afraid of our pool guy and usually runs inside to hide and bark at him. I left Jake outside and gave him full run of the yard, and they have been that way since. Like I said this only...

Re: Sudden Aggressiveness towards the other.

I have dealt with this situation. It turns out that my female doesn't like other dogs in her face/personal space. Like you, it started out as a couple of scuffles over food on the floor. My dogs are five months apart in age and have been together since the older one was 7 months old. They didn't st...

Re: Sudden Aggressiveness towards the other.

I just had a long post typed out and the computer ate it! You absolutely need to keep these guys separated right now. Have you ever been in a fist fight? How do you feel afterwards? Ready to hug the other person? Or still pissed? Dogs have that "pissed" feeling for much longer than humans...

Sudden Aggressiveness towards the other.

Last night my female started displaying major aggressiveness towards my male. Female, Abi is 4.5 years old, fixed and has been in our house for 3 years now. The Male, Jake is just over a year old, fixed and has been in our house for almost a year now. When we brought the male home about 10-11 months...

Re: Help, my dog was attacked in California

Klurejr, I don't understand how she could have gone after you-you said her bigger dog attacked your dog first, correct? If anything comes of it, I would stand your ground and fight it. If her little dog hadn't screamed, her big dog also wouldn't have gone after your dog and she's lucky you're not g...

Re: Help, my dog was attacked in California

I spoke to a good friend who has been a APBT owner for many years and he just plain avoids the dog parks, and I think I will do so from now on as well. He also mentioned that licensed or not in a he said/she said situation the local City has very little it can do to enforce something after the fact....

Re: Help, my dog was attacked in California

Hate to say it, but 100% your fault. It's law to license them. You can administer the shots, but you have to send off the info to register them. Also, have you not read the dog park sticky? You set your dogs up to fail by taking them to a place they shouldn't be...they don't meet the legal requirem...

Help, my dog was attacked in California

So today I forgot some of my medication at home so my wife decided to bring the monsters down to the dog park at Fiesta Island in San Diego so we could meet for lunch and let the dogs get some energy out. The dog park at Fiesta Island is huge, I mean really big, 97 Acres. The park has beach, dunes, ...
