Hi all I have five dogs, 2 elderly, 1 female (6) and two I call the pups one female and one male - both currently 4. There have been fights in the past between an elderly dog (jet who was the alpha male) and the female - 6 ,Ebony - who is a very dominate and bright dog. Since the pups have got older, Jack now 4 is play fighting with his litter mate but has more serious spats with Ebony. I know he is the aplha dog in the pack. Should I interfere with these spats - really they are just handbags at dawn so to speak? Jack is not a bright dog but he is really just claiming his position. I would interfere if it was with one of the elderly dogs but should I just let the younger ones sort it out amongst themselve. No blood has been drawn over this. Just all teeth and pinning down!
