No. No real fights. I've had a couple of what I call arguments and some scuffles but not a real fight. Mostly a lot of noise and postering but no real bites and they were easy to break up. Usually a loud noise or a "stop it" will end it.

Yes, female and female, the first was a 3 year old GSD vs a 2 yr GSD, the second was 2 months ago a 5 yr old Cairn Terrier vs a 5 year old GSD, the Cairn started it, I have worked with her since than, she is a new rescue, and she is much better, but they are never alone together.

I've had the luck of never having a true dog fight in all the years I've had multiple dogs. Years ago, I did have one half grown mutt pup try to pin down my huge GSD Bear when he was very old, to assert a new pecking order. I grabbed him by the scruff and yelled at him and he never tried it again. I had a beagle named Pup that dominated everyone - GSD, lab, etc. She could take away a deer leg from the GSD. But it's like everyone knew she was so nasty about it that no one challenged her, so we left it alone. Otherwise, she was a happy-go-lucky dog that got along with the others. Which is kind of funny, because she was one of the short, small beagles. That's been the worst of it over the years in my household. Currently watching the situation I'm in now with a new introduction of a rather needy dog.

I didn't vote, because they weren't both our dogs.
It was male/male
neutered GSD (our Kaos)/intact Pit bull (neighbor)
Kaos was 6 or 7/ Benny was 10

The dogs had been out in the yards at the same time for a few months, no real reactivity. They'd usually sniff and go their seperate ways. Well one day Benny was out with his owner and Kaos was out with me. The neighbor and I were going about our yardwork, but not making contact with each other. So the dogs both go up to the fence. Benny started sniffing, he finished, Kaos started sniffing. Both satisfied we thought. Kaos laid down by the fence and Benny walked over and peed on Kaos' face through the fence. Before I could even realize Kaos jumped the fence and went after Benny. Not a pretty sight. Luckily we both gave our dogs their relax commands and they both backed off, thank goodness. Scariest thing I had ever witnessed.

OH sorry....just reread the title they both weren't my dogs....sorry

As for my dogs....no. We have had little scuffles when Kaos gets annoyed, but usually a look or "enough" from me and that is as far as it goes.


OM goodness, I need more coffee...just realized I already put that disclaimer on my original answer. YIKES

Sierra generally starts them and Jax send her to the vet. Never again do I want more than one female, especially one with no confidence, at a time.
