i have 2 bulldogs who want stop fighting and need some help with them. the mom is 3 years the daughter 2 years. i have 6 in all 2 boys 4 girls. all are family but 1 boy. all the others come from the mother dog. the mom and daughter never got into it at all would always play and lick each other. all 3 of my girls came in heat around the same time. so i put them in my garage so the boys couldn't get to them 3-4 weeks. when i bring my 2 year old out her and the mom go at it now. they cann't look at each other without fighting now at all. i cann't keep them in the same room with each other because all they want to do is fight and they want quit. neither of the 2 fight with the other dogs just each other. what should i do i have tried a few different things but none have worked need help thanks...
As I recall the only one that's altered is the Mother dog, who was recently spayed? The other 5 (3 females and 2 males) aren't? That's a lot of hormones.
For one reason or another, the one female and the mother dog have decided that they both want to be 'top dog' and neither is willing to back down. It happens sometimes. Sadly there's no real 'fix' for this, other than keeping the two completely separated from each other 100% of the time. Perhaps put spayed momma dog with the two boys, instead of keeping her with the 3 girls.
Never let them interact with each other. It's a severe cost, but occasionally will happen, especially in households where there's so many unaltered dogs. The hormones run rampant :P
As an aside.. if your mother dog is 3, and the daughter is 2, that means you bred your female when she was less than 1 year old. Shame on you for being an irresponsible breeder.

Never trust a tall dwarf... he's lying about something.
my aunts two boston terriers had that problem until she got them all fixed.. they use to fight because thered be treats on the ground and they didnt want the other dog eating their bone and stuff. so food could be a problem.
