Aggression to dogs in household

Multiple Jack Russell household: I have 3 female jack russells and 1 jack russell mix they are 1 1/2, 3, and two 4 year olds. Three of them keep getting into vicious dog fights (needing emergency medical care). They seem to fight for example: when someone comes to the door and they are all at the screen a fight will break out or one day we were at the park and each kid had a jack russell on a leash and a strange german shepherd came running up to them and they were trying to fight and we were pulling the leashes back and then they started fighting each other and we could hardly break it up and then one had to go for stiches in the neck. The next day they were all laying next to each other on a blanket licking each others ears. I do not want to get rid of any but the fighting is becoming more frequent and the emergency vet bills are getting quite costly so please let me know if there is any way I could prevent this fighting and direct this reverse aggression?
