Nipping Border collies

We have two border collie sisters, 10 months old, Zuta and Luna. Zuta is aggressive and nipping at other dogs in off leash area, and Luna nips at Zuta at home, out of jealousy. Any suggestions as best way to stop this?

You should NOT be allowing your dogs off-leash if they are biting for any reason, for simple legal liability. Leash train your dogs to behave in public, which starts at home. Start from zero with tough love and rewards that are earned. Biting means that your dogs are not listening to you, because they know that there are currently no consequences. If you are having trouble with discipline, seek help from a reputable trainer. One wrong "nip" and your dog could be forced to be put down, so hop to it!! ^_^
