I have a slight training situation with my two huskies which I haven't been able to really correct and not sure where to go from here in terms of training.
I have two female huskies a little over 2 years old (sisters), still very much the puppy attitude. We exercise them to death (not literally) and they behave very well except when it comes to food. We feed them in separate cages and it doesn't matter which of the two decides to eat first the other one jumps into their cage and they go at it.
Thankfully the cages are there so no harm is being done to them outside of what they inflect via the cage but the fights can be horrible to watch and last for a long time. Generally the way to get them to stop has been wait until they are done eating, let them outside and everything is right as rain. This is also true in other parts of the house as they cuddle frequently like they are best of friends.
Trying to get their attention or giving a corrective command does nothing. Trying to divert their attention to another activity works for about 1 second until they decide "nope, I want to fight".
I have thought about adding a room divider or moving their cages to different parts of the house but not sure about that.
Any suggestions would be great! Thanks,
