Adopted 10 month old greyhound/pit mix-dog aggressive at dog park

On July 26 I adopted Lexi, the greyhound/pit mix. She's absolutely gorgeous, friendly, playful, and smart. She loves people, is already house trained and loves to cuddle and be close to me. Ive taken her to the dog park the past couple days (it's literally within 100 yards of my house) and she just will not be friendly to other dogs. She wags her tail as we approach and she sees other dogs but when we enter and dogs try to approach her she growls and shows teeth and the hair on her shoulders stands up. Today she even pinned a dog and I had to grab her. I felt so embarrassed and like a complete asshole as people were looking at me with disgusted looks. Several other pit owners said I simply need to socialize her more and get her comfortable around other dogs but after today I'm not too sure what to do. Any advice would be great!

Odin: so basically I should avoid the dog park and discontinue "socializing" her?
Williams: What made you come to that conclusion? She has the pit head and the sleek muscular body of the greyhound

2 things. 1.) socializing her does not mean taking her to the dog park. this breed often has serious DA (dog aggressive) tendencies. they do not need or often want "doggie friends". with the history of this breed that was bred into them. socializing should mean introducing her to as many people and sights, sounds, environments as possible. not as many dogs as possible. 2.) WW meant that of ur pups parents the dad musta been the greyhound and the mom the pit bull.

on a side note. id be willing to bet that ur dog is not as mixed as u think. without a pedigree its impossible to know. but often times what people consider to small or skinny to be a pit bull is exactly what an APBT should look like.

true well conditioned APBT


American Bully (different breed altogether) and often what the general public thinks is a "pitbull"

thats not really socializing. it should be done inside with another owner you can trust. only 1 new dog at a time and months before another dog is introduced.

ill also say that this breed shouldnt be unsupervised with other dogs and thats most likely how it will be for its entire life.

I guess there's no real way to know how much of her is what odin. I'd upload a photo if I could figure out how. That's a good point about socializing. I guess that's me forcing my idea of "fun" by taking her to the dog park when she doesn't find it very fun.

i look at it like this, the second your dog shows aggression then i do agree the park is just a big ole set up for failure.

i went to the dog park yesterday with samson, (let the hate begin) .... as always he is just happy go lucky, he likes to bump chests with other dogs to wrestle..... he got nipped a few times by a couple of dogs and he always just pulls his head to the side to not get caught.... to this day he wont show aggression towards anything.

anyways.... the point of this story is that there was a pit bull (blue) looked about the same size as samson.....he started rough playing with a fat labrador and then he started trying to latch on to the neck of the other dog..... since i saw his owner was too chicken shit to put his hands in between em for fear of being bitten i grabbed his dog by the collar and put his face on the ground until he settled down.....

i took the owner aside and told him that it wasnt wise to bring HIS dog to a park if he is capable of getting that aggressive from play ...and that his dog would increase the chances of our breed being banned .

now i understand it may seem hypocritical of me , and i have heard all of you loud and clear but i am always around samson at the park watching his behavior and plain and simple i dont have a dog thats agrressive towards anything ....including when he has gotten bitten by other dogs.


I think respecting what these dogs are capable and using a bit of common sense goes a long way.





p.s. all males were neutered too..except for mine.

rodrigo - the word is yet....
You will never know if and/or when DA will appear. I am not trying to bash you or anyone else but I believe a dog park for any breed is bad.
I never knew what DA was until it happened to me and it wasn't my pit that showed it. It was my Mastiff. He live to other breeds (Aussie, Rottie) for 7 years without incident then one day it happened after being together for 6mths. My pit just defended himself from being blindsided. All commands and training went with the wind.

This all happened in my backyard under my supervision, now think of this occurring in a dog park. There wouldn't of been enough people to break up or willing to break the mayhem it would of caused there with the amount of dogs present. My pit would of been blamed in a heartbeat. That is not something I want anyone to go through.

i understand, maybe one day he will change...... thats why i am always walking around near him at the do0g park , not waiting for him to sink his teeth....but always looking for any sign of aggression...whether its his tail ,.....hairs on that back of his neck stand up ....anything. but even when attacked he just moves his head to avoid the bite and just keep playing.

anyways..... no point in carrying on this discussion , i am about as responsible of an owner as it comes.... i am always hovering around him.

Better prepare yourself. Like when I posted about taking my harmless giant pup to a dog park. Besides the fact that most say he doesn't look like a bully breed I still never heard the end of it. Lots of people actually do take pits to dog parks. Like you saw one, and when I took Jaws I saw two. As long as the owner knows what they are doing, and watch their dog like a hawk then I myself see no fault. I know in me posting this comment as being on your side, I to will see the hate. Sad to say I am quite used to it by now. I loved the picture by the way, your boy looked so happy to be out there and it seems like he was having fun. He also seems to glow compared to the other ones XD


As for the pit/greyhound aggression problem. She probably just needs more work, try leash introducing her to your friends dogs. From the way you explained it she seems a little scared. She may also always be dog aggressive. I just say try to work on it in a controlled environment for a while until she becomes relaxed and confident.

to each his own , but no one here can tell me my dog one day will lose it any more than i can say he wont.... i go off his present demeanor, whicg some parts have evolved and some have not.

Rodrigo, your dog is young. Typically dogs hit social maturity around 2 or 3. I hope you at least carry a break stick and know how to use one. I personally find taking intact males (of any breed) to dog parks to be irresponsible, then again, I really dislike dog parks in general

I am so glad to see you have an understanding of this so quickly.



To those who still like the dog park idea.....

Its a common mistake that people think their dog will show signs. Your sign will be 2 dogs tearing into each other. If letting your dog get injured in a dog fight is worth the risk of going to a dog park which is completely un useful and actually the opposite of what proper socialization is then go ahead. Your dog. I personally don't like to set my animals up to fail.

Socialize your dog in public walks teaching them to ignore other dogs and pay attention to you. Socialize with noise and changes in surrounding. Letting your dog run loose and thinking that other dogs mean time to jump and act out is not socialization.
