    This and Patterson suggestion. Assuming they're deer dogs and not coonhounds your hunting in a pair split up your cast across the block throw one in another club members box or shed one to a buddy

    Lightbulb Long ramble but on topic.

    My uncle, God rest his soul, had a way to cure this problem with his coonhounds [redbone and bluetick], he would try the laying on of hands and then it was a new home for one or both[usually this] of them.
    He would not have a dog that fought at the tree.
    Further, HE was the Alpha with his dogs, ALL of them for 30+ years. Any of them that did not understand his spot at the top, well, they did not stay around long.
    Late in his life, he raised some Feist and had one that was a good one but it wanted to be the boss too. My uncle gave him to me since he knew that my head was harder than his or that dogs.
    At 4 months I took him to a dove field [with very little prep] and he went to fetching birds that day. He would track deer and run squirrels and come when I called.
    Yep, he was a good one but uncle said he had to have a new home and I am proud to have had him at mine.
    A new home would be your best fix IMO and soon before something bigger happens on a track.

    I have had a few that didn't like each other,that would fight if they were in the same pen or were put in the dog box together however I am lucky enough to run several packs and could keep them apart never had any that would fight after they were cast or if they ran up on each other in the woods that would go to fighting.You got to Alphas that really don't like each other.I would try two things first I would put 2 or 3 pens in between them if possible. Then I would put them in the same pen and wait,when the fight begins before its gets to far I'd wade in there with the water hose and break it up then put them in separate pens do this a least two times a day if possible do this for about a week.I like using training collars for certain things however if you had access to an adjustable shock stick or just a plain shock collar it could be used along with the water.If that doesn't work if you want to keep them both you will have to run one with your pack every other weekend or sell one of them to one of your hunting partners.

    Yeah have put 7 pens between them now RJ. Put them in pen now three straight days with water hose in hand but with me around they won't even look at each other. I believe I'm going to get my brother to run one on Fridays for me and I hunt the other on Saturdays. I just can't part with the bloodline. Been using it 25+ years and they are the last of three males. Had a female but she got hit by a train Friday. I worry if I sell to someone that hunts with me they will eventually run across each other's paths. Been offered big time money for either but I hunt enough holidays that I believe I can keep both. Do you think sending one away for a few weeks would help?

    It's amazing that I have dumped them 9 times and they only fought twice. But those two times were pretty intense. Both times the alpha box got them out of the woods. Friday dumped them three times and they ran out deer together just the 2 of them with no problem. One time though they battled. Seems if their brother is with them they have no problems. I guess this is all my fault though. Never had a problem with it in 35 years of hunting but this one time set something off in the two of them. Bred a female at the house and that's what started all of this. Oh well learn from your mistakes. Going to create a new pen away from others to use for breeding. All started with a woman.

    Seriously have never had that issue. And like other have said shocking them may make it worse.

    Tell those dogs "Bros before Hos!"

    Good luck... dog on dog aggression can be a real pain to fix. We had two dogs that absolutely hated each other in our house for 4 years. We were always on edge.
