2 teefies wat baklei

Hallo Dokter,

Ons het x3 teefies (gekruisde staffie; Jack Russell en Scottie). Die staffie en Jack Russell het die afgelope tyd begin baklei (die Scottie is nog te jonk, ek dink, om te baklei). Nie een van die bogenoemde honde is "reg gemaak" nie. Die bakleiery veroorsaak `n bloedbad en ek is bang dat die Jack Russell dood gebyt gaan word. Die bakleiery begin elke keer wanneer ek in die nabyheid is. VRAAG: sal die probleem opgelos word sou ek die honde laat "reg maak"?

Baie dankie.

Hi Flerrie
No, spaying them will probably not stop the fighting, unless they only fight when one is on heat. This problem will only be solved by separating the dogs or re-homing one or two. Terriers are bred to be aggressive and more than one of the same gender together is a recipe for disaster. Once they start fighting on a regular basis it is cruel to keep trying to make them live together.

Ek vrees ook dat dit 'n onoplosbare probleem is. Dit kan tot 'n sekere mate verbeter as jy self 'n klompie boeke lees oor die probleem - kyk op die Web onder Pam Whyte, of Valerie O'Farrell - hulle het altwee boeke geskryf oor hondegedrag en aggressie onder verskillende omstandighede.

Ongelukkig is dit so dat ons eie instinktiewe oplossings juis verkeerd is - ons is bv geneig om die verloorders van die geveg jammer te kry en ekstra te vertroetel, maar dit sal die situasie net vererger.

Dit is glad nie 'n onvermydelike saak dat die derde hondjie naderhand ook sal baklei nie, maar die twee wat did reeds doen moet liewer geskei word, voor een van hulle die ander doodmaak.

I dont have good news for u ... bitches who fight will fight to the death even spaying is unlikley to help ... they should all be spayed anyway to prevent unwanted litters.

A staffie and jackrussel are of course both terriers and are inclind to be same sex aggressive.

U can try spaying both and seperating them and then concentrate on training ... u dont mention how old they are?

Keep us updated.
