I have two dogs, a boston terrier and a lab/pit mix. Tonight my wife took our boston to another house with other dogs an
Other dogs. When she came home, she let both dogs out together and when they came in our lab/pit attacked our boston. She stopped after a few seconds, but why would she do this?? Please help

She did this because your dog came home smelling like other dogs. Dogs know each other by smell, and Boston smelled funny to her dogmate, which brought out the territorialness in your Pitt mix. Don't bring the little one to play with different dogs and then back home to your other dog without giving her a full bath in the future to avoid further issues. Luckily for you this is an easy fix... just wipe the little one down with some scented bath wipes asap in the meantime before she can be bathed. ^_^ Happy Howli-days
