Hoping someone has some pointers/advice on how we can break one of our dogs of attacking another one.
We have three border collies (2 female/1 male) and an adopted stray that showed up about two years ago. Couldn't find an owner so we kept her. Not sure of her pedigree but a fun dog...........most of the time. Think she is part snouzer(sp?) and blue healer. She is very bad about attacking one of our female border collies for no apparent reason/provocation. This afternoon was a good example --- BC sitting minding own business and the pooch simply goes after her.
We would really like to know how we can cure this behavior. Any advice is greatly appreciated as the 'new' dog is run and playful but has this one flaw.
Oh the BC being attacked is not spayed but the 'new' one is as is the other female BC.
Thanks.

Sorry, but you won't get any solutions on this forum or any other. It's a little too complicated and a solution depends on too many variables. Someone needs to see the behavior between the dogs, as well as how you handle them. Remember that they are pack animals and are always going to want to test the alpha dog. Are you the alpha?

Hooked, there's one thing that might give you some help. Check out "The Dog Whisperer" on National Geographic Channel on Friday nights. He (Cesar Milan) explains a lot about why dogs react the way they do to other dogs.

Just a suggestion.
