Brothers fighting

Discussion in 'Training & Behavior' started by Trenton Gunnells, Feb 9, 2018.

  1. I have a pitbull(axle)that starts a fight with his brother(dozer when playing, attention is being given, or his brother comes around a new guest. They are 9 months old. He doesn't do this with my year old female dog. They are lap dogs including laying all over each other. Even right after they fight axle will walk over and lick where dozer has gotten scratched.

    I think my male is getting jealous when our female gets attention from someone new. My husband thinks he is being overprotective. I'm interested to see what suggestions you get. We have them on leashes when they meet people. So it has only gone as far as snarling and pulling towards her.

    They are pit bulls, dog aggression is what they do best. Best better to learn how to kennel and rotate or you're going to have a fight someday and one or both of your dogs is going to get hurt.

    I would definitely keep an eye on it, if you aren't familiar with the breed then i suggest you start researching ASAP. It could be they are just playing rough or one of them could be turning on and the older they get the more damage they can do. At that age they can easily kill one another if left alone to long. Start the crate and rotate right now, i wouldn't chance it if it were me.
