Fight Protocols  
Last week this happend:

"Doggy day care attack leaves animal in serious condition".

Not at my daycare, thank god, but one down the street. This place had no plan of action. I guess a fight broke out and preditor drift set in. Things like this happen, but it should have been caught in time. Its awful for everyone involved.

Which brings me to my question, what kind of protocal does your facility have in place?

Im hoping, "PUNCH!" isn't a common responce.

That is horrible when that happens. We obviously haven't had anything that serious take place but it's true... when a dog yelps there are several that feel the need to attack.

I can't believe someone punched a dog so hard he broke his fist... that's not right.. It's pretty messed up actually. In my experience and what I prefer to do is to yell a lot and step in.. I just break them up with my body and most of the time end up standing/laying over the hurt dog until someone else comes to my aid. There's always two of us with the dogs at all times so it's fairly easy to break them up. We try to never let it come to a fight but it does happen...

We don't allow other dogs to come in contact with each other, but there was an incident recently. A pit nashed its teeth through the fencing and caught on the another dogs lip, and of course its jaws locked and didn't let go for some time. We sprayed it with water, which didn't work and just stood back, since the pit couldn't do any more damamge to the dog behind the fence and we we're afraid it would turn on us if we pissed it off. We don't allow pits anymore.
