It’s every dog owner’s worst nightmare; you’re walking your pet in the park, when another dog appears. One makes a move to investigate the other, when all of a sudden it goes horribly wrong and they get into a fight.
It’s human nature to panic initially, but if you act without thinking, you are liable to end up seriously hurt yourself, even by your own pooch. Here are a few tips on breaking up a dog fight:
As is the case with anything unpleasant, prevention is better than cure. Watch your pet very closely when out walking him, and if a situation arises where you think that he, or another dog, is likely to get aggressive, simply walk away from it. Even the best behaved of dogs can give in to the temptation to get into mischief, so make sure that he’s always on a dog leash; if he has a history of aggressive behaviour, it’s worth considering a dog muzzle or another similar restraint.
