HERE IS HOW TO BREAK UP A DOG FIGHT SAFELY
ALWAYS BE PREPARED! At home, in yard, house, and kennel, make sure you have the tools needed to break up a dog fight within reach. I keep extra dog leashes hanging where they can be easily retrieved. I also keep a break stick within easy reach. When a dog fight occurs, you don't want to be running around trying to find these tools. Breaking up a dog fight is very dangerous and should only be attempted by those who are qualified to break up a dog fight.
DO NOT BE TO QUICK TO JUMP IN AND TRY TO BREAK UP A DOG FIGHT
As difficult as it may be, control yourself, do not step in until they have a grip and you have determined who has the advantage. If you are by yourself, you will have to work methodically and pace yourself so as not to overreach your ability. Remember that most breeds of dogs will stop fighting on their own, so don't be quick to jump in and try to break up the dog fight. Again, breaking up a dog fight is very dangerous.
USE YOUR BRAIN! Physically, you may not be a match for two powerful dogs in a dog fight. Therefore don't rely simply on your physical strength to break up a dog fight. Use your thinking ability! Stand back and consider your options. If no help is available and you cannot match up to the power of two dogs fighting, you may just have to wait for them to tire.
Once they both get a grip, they are not able to breath well, and fatigue does set in rather quickly in most cases. You may have to wait before stepping in to break up a dog fight. If no help is coming and you believe you have the physical ability, here is what you need to do:
ONLY APPROACH THE DOGS ONCE THEY HAVE A GRIP TO BREAK UP A FIGHT
YOU MUST HAVE A LEASH! Walk and get at least one leash. Determine where you can tie the dog off to. Only approach when the dogs are engaged and have a grip. Stand back and determine which dog has the least favorable position. If you can get to the collar of that dog, slide the loop end under the collar and then run the clip end through the loop, so that it creates a slip or noose. If you can't get to the dog collar, put leash around the dog's midsection just forward the rear legs. Run the hook end through the loop to make a slip knot. Then secure that dog to something.
HERE IS HOW TO BREAK UP A DOG FIGHT WHEN ONE DOG WON'T LET GO
WHAT IF ONE DOG WON'T LET GO! Sometimes however the dog you have secured, will not let go after you have broke the grip of the dominant dog. If you selected the dog with the best position, once you break his hold, the other dog will often try to go for a better position. That is your clue to pull away, thus breaking up a dog fight.
