    What To Do If You See A Dog Fight

     

    There is quite an interesting phenomenon in that dogs of the same-sex are more inclined to fight rather than dogs of opposite sex. When dogs of opposite sex fight it is usually due to issues of territoriality or dominance.

    To understand why dogs fight we really need to understand how a dog sees his or her world. Dogs think in terms of packs and especially the hierarchy within a dog pack. Those dogs higher up in the hierarchy are the ones who can eat first have the right to mate and are able to have the best position in which to sleep. So in our domestic world, we often see dogs fight usually over food, the right to mate, the right for attention of his or her owner, or even to defend its territory or home.

    There are other factors which can lead to some dogs having a higher inclination to fight rather than other dogs. One of the main reasons some dogs fight more than others is due to the breed and their breeding. Some breeds by virtue of their nature, their instincts and their previous breeding tend to be more aggressive and more prone to fighting. Unfortunately, some dog owners take advantage of these natural instincts of the breed, and train them to become even more aggressive and more willing to fight.

    Another reason why some dogs tend to fight is due to their lack of socialization and training. A dog that has not been adequately socialized or trained is more likely to become fearful when in the presence of other dogs later in life. A dog's natural response to fear is to show aggression and hence potentially fight. This is why it is essential to extensively socialize your dog particularly within the first 16 weeks of their life. The idea is to socialize your dog with as many other dogs and other people as you can.

    Also you will need to socialize your dog with as many environments as you possibly can so that your dog will become familiar and more comfortable with his changing surroundings. Of course it is also essential to ensure your dog is properly obedience trained. This is to ensure you will have complete control over your dog in any situation.
