  1. Alright, that makes allot of sense. Thanks for the help.
  2. The trainer in my area told me to never get between a dog fight and to use a deep voice to break the dog’s attention. He also told me not to separate them and to try to give both equal attention. On the medical question my border collie (Ann) is very healthy and has always displayed a playful passive attitude. The wheaten terrier (Patrick) on the other hand is in bad health. He has an untreatable heart condition and has trouble breathing, but is always friendly. On the morning before the fight Ann grabbed onto an electrified fence with her mouth. She was quite nervous after the shock but went on to play fetch, and seemed back to her regular self after an hour or so.
  3. Hello, I have a female border collie that has just turned two years old, and a male wheaten terrier that is 9 years old. For the past few days my border collie has been biting and acting very aggressive to my terrier. It all started few weeks ago when I was playing with my border collie and stopped for a second to pet my wheaten terrier, who had just walked up to my side. She came over to him and nipped his face , at which time I gave her a command to lie down ; tried to physically separate them ( A bad move on my part.) a fur ball ensued, during which I was bitten as I pulled her mouth away from his throat. The good news is they are both in good health and none of the bites broke there skin. I have used every discipline technique that I can think of (short of hitting), and have consulted a local Border collie trainer with no change. The other day I watched the wheaten terrier’s foot collapse on him when he was walking, so he may have had a small seizure, but I am not sure if this would cause my border collie to have a change in attitude towards him.
