A dog fight may be the best way to teach your pet what it means to be strong, a new study says.
The study, published by The American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), concluded that pups’ willingness to fight has a major impact on their ability to survive and thrive in the wild.
The study examined the ability of puppies to survive in a situation of intense stress, including dog fights.
The researchers looked at the behavior of 15 pups that were in the same foster care home as 10 puppies that had experienced serious injuries, and the pups had to be separated.
Each puppy was allowed to fight for two hours.
One puppy fought in order to avoid the other puppy, which had been hit by another dog and was unable to fend off.
The other puppy continued to fight after being struck by the other dog, which caused the pup to drop his collar and become limp.
A second puppy was able to fight, but not for as long as the first one, and he fell and was killed.
The pups who survived this fight were the most resilient, and showed greater resilience than the others.
“If you want to teach puppies to fight and survive, fight for them.
They’ll learn how to survive even when you don’t want to,” said Dr. Thomas L. Smith, the study’s lead author and director of the Institute for Animal Behavior and Health Sciences at Baylor College of Medicine in Texas.
“[It’s] a way of getting your dog to learn to survive through some kind of physical trauma.”
Smith and his colleagues followed these puppies over a three-year period.
The dogs fought and were hurt on average four times a day.
At the end of the study, the researchers were able to compare the number of fights and injuries among the puppies that were fighting and those that were not.
Smith said pups exposed to the same type of intense fight or fight avoidance had a 50 percent lower likelihood of surviving compared to pups not exposed to such a situation.
These results are important because many dog owners and veterinarians believe that fights and fighting are a major source of stress in the home, and that pup fights may be an effective way to combat the problem.
“If there’s an issue in the house that’s causing the problem, you need to address it.
I don’t think there’s anything wrong with a dog that’s going to fight,” said Sarah B. Miller, an animal behaviorist and owner of the Pet Rescue Group in Florida.
“I don’t see a reason to take away their fight training.”
Miller said that the research demonstrates the importance of training a dog to fight in the first place.
“Dogs are social creatures, and they’re not just social animals.
There’s a difference between being a dog and a human,” she said.
“And fighting is a form of aggression that we should teach our dogs to avoid.
And if we teach them that, they’ll learn to avoid it and they’ll get the most benefit.”
