I should have allowed them to fight it out the first time and that that would have been the end of it.
This is not true. More often then not it will get increasingly worse and given the nature of these dogs it is likely they would fight to the death. I can't stand it when people suggest this. First it is likely that there will be a death, second the one that survives will have extensive medical bills. What ass would do this?
I'm not talking about a tif but full on fight is different.
We went through the Callie/Eliza thing... Callie was really gracious and never sunk her teeth into Eliza, but that third time Eliza pulled a cheap shot... Callie never forgot it and I knew if they ever got into Callie would kill her. Eliza just wanted the top spot but wasn't capable.
From then on if Eliza was on a fence adjacent Callie would lower her head and growl. Callie got along with all dogs in every field.
No way could I stand back and watch my dog get killed.
Trainers my butt!
