Breaking Up a Dog Fight by AVMA

Dogs, for the most part, are good at getting along and avoiding confrontation.
But occasionally, as with people, fights can break out between them. Whether
they’re meeting for the first time or long-time companions, dogs can frighten,
threaten, or just rub one another the wrong way, leading to an escalation of
aggression and violence. In this podcast, board-certified veterinary behaviorist
Dr. Bonnie Beaver, a professor at Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine
and past president of the AVMA, talks about dog fights: Why they happen, how to
safely break them up, and how to avoid them in the first place.
