Babysitting two female JRTs one 11 one 8

by janey

The two dogs have started fighting serious serious fighting. The younger one always starts the fight but is always the only one injured. They even try to get at each other through glass or under doors.
I have my own 4 year old male Yorkie and he finds the fighting really stressful.
The owners won't be back for two more weeks.

I am keeping them separate but they are tricky and the younger one tries to escape all the time so she can start a fight.

Any ideas?

Dogs fighting
by: Dan

Female dogs fighting can be very serious. Because you are babysitting (and not the owners) I would continue to do everything in your power to keep them separate. Keep one dog in one room and the other Jack in another room. If they have crates, keep them in their crates. Feed each one in their perspective rooms and walk each one at different times. Do not risk having them together in the same room, it's not worth the stress level for everyone involved.

Good luck!
