My C*cker Spaniel and German Sheppard have been apart for awhile but now they are back together again. they are tolerating each other most of the time. however, they like to fight through the screen door. and it gets pretty heated any ideas to help them get along. I have been trying to make sure that they get out the door at the same time but another issue that I have is the sheppard likes to bite the spaniel on the head all the time what can I do to stop this.

I am guessing they are both dominate females. If this is the case, the only thing you can really do is avoid things that set them off. When I had issues with kennel fights between two females, they were set off by treats and other food type aggressions mostly. So started seperating them while they ate, or put them in seperate rooms where they couldnt even see each other while eating treats or chewing on bones. Once I completely elemented to opportunity for food aggression, the rest of the time they behaved better. I still had to be sensitive to attitudes and learned the signs to get them seperated before a fight could break out.

Boils down to paying attention and acting quickly to warning signs. You can only prevent triggers, not the behavior.

Sorry I haven't updated in awhile.

My girls are getting along better together as long as they both go out the same door at the same time. but the Sheppard still wants to bite the spaniel. so if she gets too riled up I have to put a muzzle on her to defuse the situation. I hate doing that but I don't know what else to do.

They have no problems with food aggression at all they both eat together wonderfully.

One of the other issues I deal with is that when someone comes to visit it seems as though that is another time that the girls fight. and I think that Pigeon (Sheppard) wants the full attention of my guests I don't know what else that it could be.

Simple solution. The owner needs to get a life, maybe get laid, maybe talk about something that people care about.
