    Yes. Spaying or neutering usually helps with aggression, as it cuts down on hormones production that can fuel a dog's instincts to be territorial.

    Totally agree with MamaBas (as usual)... spaying a female doesn't usually affect their aggression and can make it worse.

    You need to deal with it... but don't be surprised if you don't. Some females just cannot live together. You should of kept a male pup and had the mother spayed.

    Unlikely. In fact from experience, if anything once the female hormones have been removed, some bitches can be the opposite!! It's up to you to control what goes on between this daughter and her mother because once there is a full on fight between bitches, there may be no way back although actually, within reason, it should be mum who sorts out this youngster!

    She should be spayed however!!!

    Ditto Mamabas and Lorraine (as

    You may be mis-interpreting what you are seeing, some dogs play roughly and owners can mistake this for aggression. I would be very surprised at this point if what your pup is doing is aggression.
