PostSubject: Maya and Kay fight   Wed Dec 26, 2012 6:46 pm

So i was taking a video of the girls playing in the snow and Maya and Kay get into another fight. They had just gotten into another one earlier today that wasn't too bad so i let them work it out. This one wasn't too bad either and i was going to let them work it out but it lasted a little while. There were no injuries and haven't been any lately with their fights. I was wondering if anyone could tell who started it and why it happened. Kay is a little weird and plays weird too, when maya or sophie try to play with her she'll snarl and make horrible sounds and sometimes turn it into a fight. You can tell a little in this video, Maya will usually dodge her, run away, or jump away and do a play bow.

Abby I am not sure if i would call that fighting.. my two play alot like that. Huskies do play pretty rough. I think they are maybe trying to establish an alpha the pecking order in the pack.

Hmmm i always called it a fight because of the serious snarls, teeth, and whatnot. Just not a serious one, but i could be wrong. Yeah we've only had Kay since October so their still figuring out the pecking order. Maya never shows teeth unless she's serious, she plays really rough all dogs too, especially Kay and Sophie. I can tell that Maya gets nervous with all of Kay's snarling, i'm hoping she'll get used to it. They used to be worse and would actually hurt each other but not anymore.

Honestly, that would be past the "playing" limit for me. Mine play VERY rough, but if it got to that point I would consider it a fight. Just this morning Asia and Mya got into a scuffle very similar to this one. I had to run to separate them. No blood was drawn and they were back to normal immediately, but to me that was a fight. It was over a ball in the yard. Mya snarls and makes noises at Kody and Asia too. Kody just runs away from her, but lately Asia is standing her ground instead of running away.

How long have you had Kay now?

We posted at the same time Very Happy Ok so since October. I would give it time and hope that they just get used to each other. It's only been about 2-3 months. It took Mya about 7 months to get used to Kody being here.

Yeah they like each other but sometimes things get a little out of hand. Kay and Maya usually lay right next to each other in the house and play pretty good too. It's usually just when they're outside together that fights happen.

I'm not an expert, but in my opinion it looks like Maya started it. Why, I'm honestly not sure. Maybe she didn't like something Kay did or like other stated, she could have tried establishing dominance.

Maya usually starts them because Kay does something she doesn't like. Then when i pull them apart Kay will go back to Maya for more and just snarl in her face until Maya gets fed up with it. Kay isn't good at listening to other dogs unfortunately.

I wonder if Maya was resource guarding the snow and that's why she started the fight. Maya's not too big on sharing things with Kay yet.

Here's a video of Kay getting on Maya's nerves and Maya snapping at her. Kay actually listened to her and left for once.

After looking at it and watching it several times it looks like Kay was very excited and being a bit more playful than the others. Seem's like Sophie is more like a referee and trying to calm Kay down and stop a fight before it happens. Towards the end Kay kinda jumps and looks like she pushed Maya, which could have pissed her off and she was just correcting Kay letting her know she's in charge and Kay didn't like it, which could have been the cause of the scuffle.

Not 100% but that's my take on it.

In my opinion, I think these will continue to happen until they establish a packing order.

Edit: After watching it once more, lol ... Kay throughout the entire video is seeking out Maya and Sophie is barking at Kay trying to keep her away from Maya. I honestly think Kay is trying to take over alpha and Maya doesn't like it.

I don't believe Maya started the fight, I believe it was Kay and Maya finished it.

That sounds about right. When they do get into these kinds of fights do you think it's better to let them work it out or to break it up?

If it were me, I would correct it. Hayden tries to test his limits to see how far he can get with my other dog's, but I never allow it to escalate into anything. As soon as I feel Hayden is even attempting to be an ass, I'm all over him. I don't play games, he get's one chance, if he messes up he's removed. I also use an E collar though and if I feel he isn't listening to me and what I'm doing isn't getting through to him, I use it.

If this sort of thing keeps happening in you're home and you're uncomfortable, perhaps you should seek the advise from a dog behaviorist that could guide you in the right direction.

Alright i'll correct it when it happens, thanks.

Don't think my parents would be too keen on a dog behaviorist so i'll just correct them when it happens and wait. It's not like they want to kill each other. Smile
