Hi there.
I personnally cannot help you. Sorry. :(

However, there are some fantastic threads in the Dog Training Forum that might help.
You also might try posting your problem there.

Welcome, Blacki. Please turn off your caps-lock. It makes your post really hard for old farts like me to read.

Something to avoid: Reprimanding a dog for aggressive behavior. It reinforces the dog's notion that bad things happen when the other dog is around.

When the dogs first encounter one-another (under controlled circumstances) reward each of them extravagantly with praise or food or whatever they value. The idea is that they will make a connection between the presence of the other dog and good things happening.

Disclaimer: I'm not a trainer. I've seen this work, with patience, but I've never had to do this myself. There is another old fart that might check in and give you more expert suggestions.

Thank you Ron E,
This is really hard work, today the son came back home from staying with my daughter a couple of days, I put him in the kitchen with the baby gate there, as soon as the father seen him, they started in, so I put each one in a different room so they couldn't see each other,it is hard to take them to a training class because it is so expensive, so I will have to work with what I got.Blacky
