Customer Question

I have 8 dogs ( 4 GSD,s, 1 huskey, 1 huskey x GSd, and 2 x breds ) All live in the house peacefully including feeding time. We own 12 acres of land attatched to our home and take the dogs at least twice daily onto our land which is securely fenced ( to prevent the Huskey from going `walkabout ` ) The problem two female GSD,s who are the best of friends throughout the day turn into a nightmare. Immediately we open the door to take them for a walk the long haired GSD attacks her ` friend`.It is serious fighting , and has resulted in emergency vet treatment. We now fit a muzzle on the instigator until all the dogs are out in the fields where she settles down and the muzzle is removed but now the problem has become worse ! whenever we open the back door to go outside for whatever reason the long haired bitch goes into attack mode.

In order to supply you with an informed answer, it is necessary for me to collect some additional information from you. When I receive your response or reply, it will likely take me between 30-45 minutes to type up my reply if I am still online when I receive notice that you replied. I hope you can be patient.
Can you put names, ages, breed, sex and reproductive status to each dog?
Please identify which dog you believe to be the instigator and which one is being attacked?
What obedience training have at least these two dogs had?
