I enforce the order and I don't usually have any serious issues

I would recommend (others may disagree) in a spat...Faust goes to crate..every time. No yelling, no punishment, but he is he one that is separated. He will learn to associate fighting with Seppel means seperation.

Hmmm... he does tend to be a little pushy/bossy when it comes to getting my attention. Always the first in line when it comes to play time or treats, and his sheer size alone makes it easy for him to shove Sepp out of the way. Daisy won't put up w/that at ALL.
I haven't indulged him when he does that, but, clearly, a stronger message is needed.
Thanks, Diana... I hope you feel better soon.
