3 Big Dogs

Default Who is alpha??

We have 3 big dogs, but this problem only applies to two of them. We got Dougall a border collie/rotti cross almost 9 years ago. He quickly took top spot over our other dog. About 6 years ago we got Licore (pronounced Licker) a malamute/shep cross. Both had been rescued when we got them.
Dougall was about 1 1/2 years old when we got him and Licore was 9 months when we got him. The problem is that they still fight for top spot. This happens over food and like last night during our walk they saw another dog and started fighting with each other. I am sure the fight was over who was going to "take on" the new dog! Of course they are on leads! They don't fight a lot, but every three months or so or like last night they have a go at one another. No one gets hurt except me yelling at them to stop. I wish they would get along better and not go through this. Any suggestions please!! Thank you. LL
