Thunderdome. The right way is ALWAYS Thunderdome.

Seriously, though, I was taught to step in, take control of my dog's head and become the alpha immediately with a firm, commanding "NO!" It's worked with my German Shepherd I had growing up and my Chow-Chow that I have as an adult.


It's always wise to teach your dog a "let go" command. Practice it with toys, etc, and then when they do well with those, even occasionally practice it with food or a treat. Then when something like this happens, you can just order them to "let go" and they should drop whatever little mutt they happen to be chewing on.

If that fails, then I'd just grab his mouth and jaw, pull them apart and, like you said, tell him NO loudly.

It's been a long time since I had a fighty dog, though, and he would only ever go after bigger dogs (the idiot.) I've fortunately never had to deal with one of my dogs grabbing a little yapper.
