| || | Dog aggression?
I know this is the horse forum and this is a dog preoblem. But my two dogs seem to get into fights quite often. We have had my dog Lilew for about 4 years now. We rescued her when she was only 4 months old. And this past July my dad found this little border collie/brittany spaniel mix running around and almost getting hit, and he is a major dog lover so he stopped and got out and she just jumped in the car and he took her home and we fell in love with her right away. We called the pervious owners and they said she also escaped and they couldnt keep her, so we kept her and we named her Lolli. But Lilew has always been an alpha dog but she LOVES other dogs, and but Lolli on the other hand likes to go after any dog she can. They have gotten in quite a few fights and the first one Lilew put Lolli in her place and then it was fine for awhile. But now it happens kinda often. Like once a month. And its just getting to the point where I don't know what to do. And its breaking my heart. But whats odd is they seem to love eachother alot and they get along great and then BAM! They just end up getting in a very crazy viscious fight. Neither of them have been seriously hurt only a little cut. But its just not okay. I don't know if I should get rid of Lolli or try maybe some aggression classes? Im so lost. :(
