This video was originally filmed as a live Facebook post after Cheri got off the phone with one of her clients, who has dogs in the home that are fighting.
Having two or more dogs in a single home who don't get along can be one of the most challenging of behavioral situations. Not only from the technical standpoint of training and behavioral management, but also (and perhaps more significantly) it can be emotionally taxing to be living on edge in a highly managed environment. Here Cheri recorded an impromptu lecture covering some of the essential details of managing and working through this type of crisis situation.
Due to it's live recording/publication, the recording quality is not as sharp as our other videos. However, we felt the information was too important not to share, so we are offering it free at Consider The Dog :-)
