Yesterday I put my two boars in a bigger cage that is 2 x 6 grids. They are doing the usual stuff, teeth chattering, rumble-strutting and mounting. How long does this dominance usually last?

It can last for a couple of days to two weeks. If it falls into the teenage months, it may take longer.

The best way of minimising a renewal of the hierarchy when moving boars (which is one of the occasions even adults pairs can fall out) is to rub the new cage with used bedding and to use soiled bedding and uncleaned hideys when you move the boars across so the new cage is as much marked as their territory as possible.
