My two female dogs, Helen & Rani, always fight each other seriously. Rani attacks Helen thus Helen is afraid of Rani. They both are two years old. Please advice a solution in this.


Aggression happens between two dogs despite similar age and raised together. Some causes include change in relationship when they become mature, anxiety due to change in home settings or improper communications in one of the dogs or simply may be due to fight over access to food or resting territory or family members, etc. Separation anxiety or pet parent’s attentions, treats or high arousal situations can also trigger this behaviour. Dominance or high ranking theory has been debated in social behaviour of dogs.
