Hubby and I broke one up last wednesday. Kayos (10 y/o female) is very vocal and pushy. She pushed Havoc's (5 y/o male) buttons one too many times- just as he was coming through the narrow baby gate from the hall to the family room. Gates are up for puppy control.
Kayos nipped at him adn he had it out with her. Puppy tried to jump in. I snatched her up and tossed her in the yard. Buy then Havoc was pretty aroused and Kayos was afraid.
Hubby pulled Kayos by the waist. (She has bad hips did not want to grab legs). I sat on top of Havoc's head. Soon as he broke hold I grabbed his collar and tossed him in a crate.
It has been a long time since we have ahd a fight but it happens every now and then.
Hope your kids are recovering and I think you handled yourself well.
Life is back to normal here but I realized I had let Kayos get a bit too pushy so she has had her jets cooled for her.
