I have a 4 month old female who loves Opie, the 3 month old Rottweiler that lives across the street.
Tonight they were playing and got into an altercation over a plastic bottle.
Opie was chewing it and didn't take kindly to Athena trying to take the bottle. They strated going at it with growling, snarling and going after each other.
I did break it up and put the bottle away so it didn't cause any more problems.
They played some more and Opie got mad about what I don't know and they started again.
At that point Athena and an older dog started playing and after a while Opie joined in the fun. The dogs came over to us and I started petting the pups and then 'Athena started a fight with Opie.
My questions are -How serious is the fighting?
Is there a way to stop them from this behaviour?
A little more backround- Athena has a very strong food drive, but when Opie was coming over she had no interest in the turkey that I had.
Opie's personality is that of a very strong alpha male.
Any comments would help
