    Simple, you train him. Or, you could always put up a strand of electric fence. Simple – problem solved.

    All of the dogs need discipline. Right now all of the dogs are trying to establish dominance and territory. They all think it is their space. You have to teach your dog to coexist with other dogs.

    Your best option is to have the dogs meet each other face to face in a neutral controlled environment. Meet at a park while all dogs are on leashes, each controlled by a person strong enough to separate them if a fight occurs. If they know each other they are less likely to fence fight.

    Your dog needs some discipline, that’s all

    You can do some training, but if the other dogs start it, your dogs may react anyway.

    Do this with one dog at a time. Walk them outside on a leash. Once they bark at the neighbor dog, walk them inside and let them calm down. Every time they react, they will go inside the house. If they want to go out back, they will have to learn impulse control. You may have to take 10+ trips in and out side, but once they understand not to bark, you can start working with the other one.
