Excitement turning to aggression

What do you do when your dogs start out playing and then get too excited and it turns to aggression. I think I'm always nervous and my husband thinks they're just playing but I think they're getting mad. So I keep them from playing...am I robbing them of being dogs? Or am I doing the right thing? Any advice would be appreciated!!!

I believe if the level of excitment gets to be too much you need to calm them down. Help them to understand they can play as long as their excitment level doesn't get too high. We don't allow our dogs play to escalate too high because that's when over excitment and fights can break out. As long as it's controlled play that doesn't exceed the level you are comfortable with, all is good. But you will need to know how to lower the excitment of play without getting over excited yourself (strained voices, loud voices and abrupt movements etc.). Just stay calm and seperate your dogs (this doesn't mean they cant be together, just seperate them from playing) untill things cool down then they continue to play. When it escalates again, do the same thing. Hopefully they will eventually get the idea that "nice" play is ok :-)

I agree. If the play between my two becomes to escalated and over excited then i make them stop and lay down away from each other until they calm down, then they can play again. If one gets too excited they could hurt the other one by playing too rough and that can spark a fight.

Cain get way excited when he plays with Sheba. And after a whole we can tell its getting to exciting and make them come lay down next to us. Then they can play after a while. I always separate them if one gets to excited.

That's exactly what I do. I just separate them for a while until they calm down.

Just with each other (the dogs) they never get ppl aggressive. They just get really excited to play and then take the playing too far and start to get aggressive or so it seems. I just don't want them to get into a fight that started out as playing and have to deal w that. But they're never aggressive towards each other otherwise.

My wife and I let the dogs wrestle until it gets verbal, then the games are over. Once one whines or growls, we break it up quickly and seriously. Over the years they've gotten pretty rough without making any noise. As long as it doesn't get serious, we let the rough housing slide.

Never trust two dogs of the same sex to play alone. Unless you want to find yourself buying a break stick in the near future.

Get a Break stick, first of all. EVERY Responsible Bulldog owner should own and knoiw how to use one.

There's really not much you can do to "Cure" it. I mean if they were Golden Retrievers, that would be a different story, but they're not. Bulldogs were bred to take on anything on four legs, so it's not surprising that your two are starting to bicker a little bit. My advice would be to just never leave them alone and always keep a break stick ready, just in case.

They're never out of my sight. I'm a very vigilant owner. Tonight my male got out and attacked the next door neighbors dog. It's a puppy so he didn't really hurt him and I got him off fairly easily but I think he felt like the dog was on his property.
