Adriel asks...This question is about:
Two of our three neutered male dogs have aggressively fought twice since December 2015. Tobi, is a 1 year old 80lb full breed German Shepherd who is able to pin down and leave several puncture wounds on our smaller 4 year old 75lb Shepherd mix, named Dino. I believe that they fight due to dominance. They sometimes growl at each other, but we are able to distract them before anything happens. However, when they fight, there is no stopping them. I recently stopped one of their fights by ringing the doorbell, which distracted them. I do not know what to do about this. I am thinking about re-homing Tobi, but would like to try other options before doing so. I love all my dogs, but I also want to keep them safe. Please help!

My dog likes to jump. He gives hugs and is very friendly but he is a large dog and does not understand that he cannot jump on everyone. How can I get him to not jump?

How do I keep my dogs from fighting? A few months ago, we adopted two pups from the same litter. They are blue heeler/ Victorian bulldog mixes and they are the loves of our lives. Well they got into a few pretty bad fights, and we figured that they were just puppies and were just playing around. Well one day, they got into a HUGE fight to the point that one was dripping blood. From that point on, we have had to keep them separated- one of them is in the cage constantly. This is not fair to us or them, considering they are cattle dogs and shouldn't ever be confined to such a small area so often. Plus it is nearly impossible to potty train them like this. So now we have two dogs who potty everywhere and fight with one another if they're ever near each other. We desperately need help!
Nick asks...This question is about:
My pup likes to bite when we play with. We have never played tug of war and never play rough with her. We have tried giving a high pitched yelp when she bites but this seems to only make her more excited and nippy. She also starts barking when we yelp. Is there any other way to stop her biting?
