Although when we did it I felt like I was letting her down or abandoning her. Now I smile knowing she's in the right home. Best of luck on whatever you decide to do.

    Sorry you are going though this. As others have said, bitch fights are the worse and they can carry a grudge. We did have to re-home a beautiful champion, because she just hated other dogs and no matter what we did, it didn't change a thing with her. We figured it wasn't far to her to keep her away from everyone and she didn't get the loving she deserved, so we found her a loving home in Florida. Broke our heart, but it was the right thing to do for her.

    A well respected trainer said to use a Shake Can when u see a fight about to start. You need to hit the aggressor wit the can and say OUT. Remember, u r using this technique bec your dogs are already causing blood and skin scrapes so tossing a can is better than the injuries through fighting. You then follow up this with sessions with your trainer.

    Has anyone tried this? If yes, what happened

    This is only used because the fighting is serious

    We tried everything, see my post above. Trust me, a can is not going to work when they are trying to kill each other. They hear nothing, see nothing and feel nothing. They are totally concentrated on the fight. And the fights started in a split second, no warning, so no time to try and distract. I think a Shake Can could be a good tool for training but I have my doubts about trying to distract to stop a fight, or at least in my dogs case.

    It wouldn't work with shaking a can with my bulldogs either... the only thing that works for me so far to stop a fight is to pour water on them, they stop immediately. It gets a bit messy but it's safe for me and the dogs so that's what I do. Prevention is the key in our house

    I do not let my 2 Male English Bulldogs fight - the trainer has them separated by gates and I am to Throw an empty soda can w 25 pennies and hit the aggressor when he takes an aggressor position to startle him and to say OuT - at some point won't have to hit w can just say Out

    U r rt that shake can for just noise doesn't work this is different u hit to distract via startle

    I didn't 'let' my dogs fight.

    They got on perfectly fine until the instant of that first fight and I will never know what actually started it. It was horrendous and I even bashed both of them over the head with a baby gate to try and get their attention. Nothing. Maybe not the right thing to do but I was pretty frantic at the time! I eventually got the gate between them and backed the American Bulldog down the hallway with the Greyhound following still trying to fight. It was one of the most awful things I have ever been through as I was home alone with two big dogs that I honestly thought I would never be able to separate.

    I used water on two other dogs I had in the past. They used to 'squabble' more than really fight and it worked very well with them. The only problem was one of them developed a water phobia, poor boy!! Every time he saw me with a cup or glass, he was gone!

    The only thing that did work for me was to turn on a DustBuster and slide it in the middle of them. Luckily they hate that more than they hated each other. It's a lot of work to have dogs that do not get along, I still have two that tolerate each other only.

    I learned not to put my hand in the middle, I got bit fierce! First time I realized it worked was when I was sweeping so I shoved the broom in between. It didn't work totally, it took them a good 10-15 seconds to realize the broom was there. Then I thought oooooh, I could use the vacuum. Then when it actually happened again no vacuum was close so I grabbed the DustBuster instead! Bingo!

    I have never heard of that 'technique'..... I used to work at a dog daycare and our training was to lift and pull the aggressor by the back legs to safely seperate them - and then placed in crates
