Need help ASAP
First Basenji's

I have a 12 week old Basenji and she is starting to get a little aggressive with our other two dogs. this Morning my wife thought is was going to be a full blow fight between them. had to break them up.. Does anyone know what I can do to try to stop this? I do not want to get ride of any of the dogs due to this..

Have you talked to the breeder? And aggressive how? Over toys? Over food? Over the humans? Sometimes 3's a crowd and it just doesn't work… If over food and/or toys then you need make sure you feed separately (if you are not doing that already) and with toys and there is problems, then they have no toys unless supervised or in crates.

Many times what seems to be an all out fight is really the adults teach the pup its place

They eat in different rooms to be safe.. They were playing and then the Basenji ( Cheyenne) attacked one of our other Babies.. Toys are fine.. Humans no Problem

What breeds and ages are the other two dogs? And what sex? 12 weeks is pretty young to be getting pushy. How did the others react to her aggressiveness?

one is about 14-15 weeks old she was the one she got into with it. she yelped out wife broke it up.. the other one is 2 both are shih tzu's all are female

I would be more inclined to think that the one that yelped was telling the other (B puppy) TOO Rough… that is how they communicate..... unless it is really a fight, you really need to let them work it out.

And honestly, three bitches in one house?.... could be Trouble waiting to happen

In all honesty, there is not enough detail to know what the heck happened. When puppies get overly tired they do not always know how to disengage and calm themselves. Some will just keep amping up until they are over threshold. I saw this a lot with my two boys this year and frequently had to separate them so they could calm down and sleep otherwise they would just pick and pick on each other until one had a tantrum.

Since they are so young I would assume it is each trying to figure out where they fit in the scheme of things and you may be overreacting. I will however tell you that the one breed of dogs that my basenjis have never liked is ****zu.
