Tip of the Week

Whew dogs getting into a fight can be very scary. One thing you definatly should not do when dogs are fighting  is try to break it up with your hands. This can be very dangerous you could get bitten. Dogs seem to hear  nothing when they are fighting so standing and screaming at them does absolutly no good. What works is to grab the water hose and spray it directly in the dogs faces. You might have to keep doing this for about thirty seconds or so in order to break of the dogs fight. And then separate the dogs for one day or more till they can come down. And if you dogs did receive any bite wounds treat them right away if the wounds are severe or take them to the nearest vet. If the dogs have small cuts depending on the type of dog wait till the dogs have calmed down and then gently wipe them and put neosporin on the wounds.
