Aggression - Two Female Siblings

I have 2 female 8 mo old great pyrenees/st bernard mix pups from the same litter. One of the pups is more pyrenees and the other is more st bernard. The one who's more st bernard sometimes gets moody, stares at and tends to snarl and growl at her sister which then leads to a fight. How can I control this behaviour?

Spaying?
by: Anonymous

I think spaying would help a great deal.

As two females mature, they don't always see eye-to-eye, whether they are siblings are not.

Are you treating them as equals and not favouring one over the other?

Are they fighting when food is involved? If so, always feed separately. For treats, give treats in separate areas.

Watch your dogs at all times. If you see a fight about to ensue, call them apart.

You can ask a positive-reinforcement trainer come into assess your dogs to find out if they have suggestions.

Otherwise, there isn't much to be done.
