STOPPING A DOG FIGHT (Cesar911 Shorts)
There’s the high-strung lady with a sweet-faced, poorly trained, mid-sized pure-bred who believes her darling can do no wrong.

She makes a lot of unhelpful noise from the sidelines.
There’s the big dude with the really big unfixed dude-dog who tells everyone to chill out, perches himself in prime viewing position, and in his holier-than-though way announces that everything will work itself out, even when things turn bloody.
And then, of course, there’s the angry one. This is the vigilante who, instead of helping to break up the fight, chases people around with a pitchfork blaming them for the aggression, the mess and the bad weather.
The truth is, dog fights happen, they can be dangerous, and it is the responsibility of every dog owner to know how to properly handle the situation.

The best way to be prepared for safely handling a dog fight is to be familiar with: 1) things you should never do, 2) the actions available to you for regaining control of the dogs, and 3) the situational variables that will determine what kind of action you need to take.
