We all know that puppies love to play. But when neither dog is able to let up a bit and allow the other one to win, these playful bouts can evolve into real fights.
That was what was happening in the video below. Two young dogs started playing, but when neither one was willing to lose for the game, they started baring their teeth and getting aggressive.
But before things could escalate any further, a mature dog ran over from down the hallway and jumped up on the leather couch. That responsible dog then breaks up the fight before any pooch is hurt.
Check out the adorable video clip below to see how these animals reacted!
Within fifteen seconds of the video starting, the two puppies have already started showing their sharp teeth to each other. While this can certainly still be a playful gesture, it is not at this moment. These dogs are really starting to fight – play has changed to real aggression.
The dogs jumped onto each other and bat each other with their front paws. They lunge and jab with their snouts.
Then the hero dog runs around the corner and bounds up onto the couch.
From its stance behind the further dog, the mature canine barks at the little guy. He forces the dog near the camera to back off and stops the fight from progressing any further.
The dogs then calm down and become friends again. It was just a matter of reminding them that they don’t need to fight.
