The Safest Way to Break Up a Fight Between Dogs

  • Published: 30 November 2019
  • Visiting a dog park is great for your pet to get in some much needed exercise, but one dog trainer says he's not a big fan of these places. Ali Hemyari of Nashville K-9 says having strange dogs confined in an area can lead to fights. He adds that dog owners may not notice right away if a fight breaks out because they're usually distracted by their cell phones. But Hemyari has tips on how to break up a conflict if one arises.'s Mara Montalbano has more.

    I live in the middle of nowhere so if there is a dog coming by my 3 dogs would try to kill it so I have to be alert

                  Do not listen to this man! If u pulled on my dogs back legs she would tear you apart because she has joint disease in both knees, I've seen other stop fighting and attack a human when this kind of thing is done to one dog. Just use a chest harness with a handle! U can literally pull/carry your dog out of the fight, plus they double as seat belt harnesses.

                                    The best way is to choke the one that's biting until it stops.

                                      I go to a really good dog park. Everyone is super attentive. It’s the true norm for them to be in constant watch of their dog and they intervene quickly if needed so I feel better taking my dog there. We go almost daily and I have only witnessed two fights and they were finished quickly because of the intervention.
