There is no easy or perfect way to break up a dog fight, and
there is a high probability that you may be bitten, perhaps by your dog, when
you try to do so. Benjamin Franklin once said, “An ounce of prevention is
worth a pound of cure.” This is excellent advice regarding dog fights.
Recognize that if your dog becomes involved in a fight or is
attacked, you will most likely be under high emotional stress in fight or
flight mode. Therefore, your top priority must be minimizing injury.
The following link will take you to an excellent handout, The Pet Professional Guild, produced in their journal BARKS from the Guild, which describes how to intervene if your dog is attacked. – https://barksma gazine.com/how-to-break-up-dog-fights/
