Yes, We have. I won't have it done until she is through her 3rd heat cycle though. She just finished her 2cd. After reading a lot of others comments though on various threads, I am certainly not convinced spaying will help. For now, They are separated during the day and under my watchful eye during other times. After the fight poor Bella was shaking and scared. I know she want's nothing to do with another fight. It is Zoe who keeps trying to assert her dominance. If I let it go, nothing may come of it, Bella backs down in a hurry. I just don't want to take that chance.

Drag leash and a Dominate dog collar would help keep you safe. If they clash again this will be useful and explains the how and why of the tools.

Note
I know neutering a male won't necessarily stop aggression. That's what I was trying to say.

Can spaying help a female dog be less aggressive?
I know there are different theories out there but I think in some cases it will stop the females being aggressive.

The reason why i think this is simply the female won't have a hormone change twice a year. When the hormones kick of in a female in heat she is much more likely to fight another female. Other females are aroused if a female is in heat and then they are also more likely to fight or trigger one.

If they are spayed they don't have this hormone change. They're simply not in the game. They can still fight over food and territory but won't have the heightened aggression during a heat.

Neither dog was injured like OP's scenario.

I doubt spaying will make much difference at this point... after the fact. But I am in "no way" an expert. I have dealt with Dominate dog aggression but with males.

I would never allow those two to be together, they now have a history.If this is a want to rather than a have to situation..just don't!
