Why are you ever hitting each others mobs?
Once they taunt one you need to not hit it and let it get to them
Like I said earlier.
PEBCAK, not gear.

Shouldn't happen at all--he shouldn't be applying any threat to a mob that he doesn't want to tank and you can't apply your threat to. Hit/exp won't undo that range issue.
If the warrior taunts the mob, the warrior will move to the top of the agro table. However, if the monk applies more threat, he'll return to the top of the agro table. If the mob doesn't reach the warrior in time for the fixate to fall off, then the warrior will have his threat's value debuffed in the same way that all characters at range do--this will probably cause the mob to go back to the monk.
Okay, now that we've identified the problem, what can you do?
After taunting, Heroic Throw just to make sure you have a threat lead--as well as any other ranged threat you have. Meanwhile the monk needs to -lay off- that target, and focus his threat on what he's taunting off you. The monk probably won't have the same problems even if you do screw up and attack his target, because the monk taunt buffs the target's movement speed, so it will reach him before the fixate runs out.
So we go back to the original assertion, now that we have actual context. The monk needs to stop building threat on mobs he does not desire to tank. Hit/Expertise won't even help this due to the mechanics involved--the monk just needs to stahp.
Oh yeah, the dog will also debuff any damage done to it once it gets far enough away too... so the one tank -can't- generate as much threat as the other tank to make up for accidental kegsmash...
...monk needs to not kegsmash during the swap.
