How do yu know they are fighting???? Play fighting and fighting look diff. But seem similar if you are not use to it.

You have to step in the second you hear their tone and/or body language changes and put a stop to it. If you know they are fighting over toys, don't allow toys when they are together. If need be, keep the dogs separated entirely if they can't get along.

Take away toys for good?! Wth?! No.. just take them away until they learn U are the top dog..

The 2 dogs have been fighting with each other long enough now, it will be difficult or impossible for them to tolerate each other now. Possibly with a trainers help you may be able to reverse this. Since we are unable to see the dogs behavior that is the best advice.

Meanwhile, keep the 2 dogs separated - crate and rotate. They are crate trained right? If you have to have them out together, only do so if they are under complete control. They get toys, treats and fed separately and/or in the crate.

Again, get a trainer involved ASAP. You will learn to handle the dogs and avoid what is leading up to severe injuries or worse.

Boxers are smart... I had boxer.

Tell your gf to make the boxer stop. Shes the owner not you. The dog will listen to her more then it listening to you.

Your gsd is obviously okay bc yu said it goes back to play w. The boxer..

Dont worry! Go on youtube and see videos of dog playing! Then compare that to what yu are experiencing.

Lmao! Trust me on this one.. either the boxer is not good at socializing or he is just a really hyper dog.

My female shep scares me when she play fights with my male shep. She growls, bites, jumps, and her fur goes all up but he is fine and he plays right on her level!

If your gsd goes back to the boxer after "fighting" then its play fightin..

Especially since you never stated the gsd bleeds... does it?

Sometimes toys need to be taken away for good when the dogs are together... If it's something that starts fights, why on earth would you insist on having toys with both dogs?

Because taking away their toys is like taking away your phone, your baby (in some cases) or even something you enjoy playing with!

Its not a dogs fault they become protective over it...

Like I said take away the toy until they are submissive then return the toy.

My dogs are perfectly fine with it. At first it was a problem and now my female is totally fine with my male taking her toys abd vice versa.
