Once you start fighting, it can be difficult and indeed dangerous to intervene in an effort to end the fight. The best and the first is to avoid a fight.
How to avoid a dog fights
Make use of the fact that dogs mark their territory to anticipate problems. While the degree to which a dog will defend its territory may vary by race and how it is socialized, most will see any new dog that is in its territory as a potential threat and act accordingly.
Presents a new dog in a neutral place like a park in your garden place older dog. This will help reduce the chance that your dog feels the need to attack the “invader”. While you believe and want to believe that your dog is the “pack leader”, things do not always happen that way. You can communicate this idea to feed your dog first “first dog” and placing his doghouse in a privileged position, as at the foot of your bed.
When you are presenting, remove all food, since nothing is more likely to get in this way your dog feel fear and resentment think the new you will eat your food.
Encourage them to smell while you can control them. The control can be achieved if both dogs have put the strap . If you really are concerned about the possibility of a fight arises, you can place a fence or baby gate between them so they can smell safely.
Search physical tracks. A dog will be stiff and hard when feeling anxious. Puppies and young dogs usually behave submissively towards an older dog licking his nose and crawling with his tail between his legs, sometimes bending or falling to the floor.
