Again, I only have one dog but have observed my parents three dogs together. My dad is not dog savvy, never spent time on a computer for anything, his experience is with his own dogs that he has raised over the last 35 + years...some hunting dogs, most companions.
The few times he has stepped in to correct a dog for being snarky with the other actually resulted in a nasty dog fight, him getting stitches in his hand for then trying to break it up (bad move). When he doesn't step in an eye flick, curled lip, etc from the dog to the other offending dog "enough" has stopped the behaviour, no physical contact or fighting dogs. Now I don't want to give the impression his dogs are always in conflict, they for the most part live peacefully together in the house, but every once in a while....

Reason: add wording-it was confusing :)
