    I just ordered a break stick after freaking years of ignorance. My question to you is it there a thread or instruction video on not only how to use the break stick but also how to handle the fight in general. I have taken steps to keep seperated and also using mussels but there is always that chance.

    I do not watch Cesar Millan and do not agree with some of his ideas. I agree aggression or fighting can result from the stupidest things. Situations that may aggravate it should be avoided and one should be careful when resolving the fights to ensure that they do not lead to a flare up.

    I have recently realized that my Duke has DA its not bc he can be "triggered" is bc when it happens you can not call him off Beau can be called off. Duke will go into a state it has happened 3 times, this time i got smart and joined this forum and learned. I never know when or what will make Duke go after Beau. They have been together 3 years the first time wasnt bad, the second and third were. I thought if we kept toys away everything would be fine. This time Beau found half a dead animal i told him to drop it and duke attacked him. I realized i had to be better owner. We use mussels and i have a break stick on the way i take them outside seperatly. Duke doesnt growl everytime he sees Beau and it would be very easy to think well they can be around each other but i know better now. I am taking very very strict precautions. And it in all honesty the change has not effected us the way i thought it would. I still spent quality time with tham as does my husband. They are not crated 24 7. Duke has his own bedroom. Beau watches TV with my husband duke watches tv with me. Then we roatate and it has become very natural. If we ever, ever have to have them together a mussel is used on both.
    I can tell you the greatest pain in my life is not taking precautions its having a dog bleeding and shaking after a fight. Not bc i didnt watch for "triggers" but bc i didnt understand the breed.
