Hopefully you’ll never have to break up a fight between dogs, but it could happen sooner or later, especially if you visit dog parks or work at a dog daycare.
Thankfully, most dog fights sound worse than they actually are. There’s a lot of growling, snarling and posturing, but you can often defuse the situation with a quick “hey!” or clapping your hands. Often enough, the dogs will just “shake off” and call it good.
Of course, that’s not always the case so I reached out to three professionals to get their advice on how to separate dogs in a serious fight.
