Never stop puppy fighting, unless one is being seriously

hurt.

They are establishing their natural hierarchy, only one dog in

any group of dogs can be the alpha. If you interupt the process

then you are giving them confusing signals which frustrates them

and can lead to behaivior problems.

Furthermore it is one of their primary forms of exercise and

social interaction. Even the puppy who comes out last in the

heirarchy will be stronger, healthier and more sociable if you

leave them to it.
