My male pup bites my daughter

Hi all, i am new here, and have a question.
I have two pit pups. My female is 13 weeks and is wonderful with my 5 year old daughter.
No nips or growls with her, just licks
My male is 8 weeks, he's been with me about 3 weeks and in the last week has bit my daughter twice. It only happens when we are all playing in the backyard but he bites her arm and wont let go. When he does he goes after me.
I have them both working with me and a trainer that comes to our home twice a week.
The trainer tells me its puppy play, and that he was taken from his mom to soon, but i have owned pits in the past and never had this problem. Also, when he grabs her i have to pry his jaws to get him off her, nothing else works.
Do you think that its a sign of bad things to come?
Thanks...

I don't think it is a bad sign , puppys play at different levels some are very gentle and others are little fire crackers you have to get after. I have found my males were worse then my females lol. Just keep after him , maybe limit the play he has with your daughter, if this is happening outside is she running around playing? Maybe he thinks this is a game and catches her and chases after biting, teach him he only gets attention and play time when he is calm . Kids and puppys tend to over stimulate each other and things can get out of hand quickly if you aren't there hands on to correct things BEFORE they happen. Have you addressed this with your trainer at all? has she given you any pointers on how to correct and deal with this?

I'm going to talk to the trainer tonight and see what she says.
I think its just play because it only happens outside when my daughters playing with the big bouncy ball.
Thanks

Read up on bite inhibition. Play should cease when it becomes too rough. And I agree that five weeks is a wee bit young. He missed out on some important social skills by being taken from his littermates (not the mom) too soon.

first and foremost i would say until that behavior ceases keep her from your daughter , .... to me its imperative to leave the puppies with their mother for at least 8 weeks..... u gotta remember if he bit down on mom and wouldnt let go she would discipline him in a manner that would get the point across..... if that part of his upbringing is missing ....then i would guess someone needs some rearing before they get to play with the rest of the gang

Thanks for the advice...
When I bought him the breeder said he was 8 weeks. When I finally got his adba papers they say his bday is 6-14-2012. I bought his 7-22.

We've decided to keep him seperate from my daughter until (we) he gets the biting under control.

I too believe he's missed out on learning bite inhibition. The way I would handle things is to be right there, and as soon as he opens his mouth to nip your daughter, you correct him with a stern "Aaaahhhhh" and have your daughter walk away from him. Being that your daughter is 5 yrs old, you can also involve her in the correction process, have her to do the correction, and immediately turn her back on him and walk away. I involve my children in my dogs' training from the time the dog enters my house, no matter the age, to instill that the child is higher ranking than the dog and the dog must obey the child as he/she would obey myself.

Best of luck with your training session, and I do hope you can get this under control ASAP. Please keep us posted on his progress.

Good job, now just watch that he doesn't try that with bees, lol.

Might not be a bad idea to keep some benadryl on hand in case he does grab a bee.

exact same thing happened with Hooch and my oldest son in 2000. Carson got a full on bite on his shoulder... yrs later Hooch was 2 and Carson and him were peas and carrots.. 10yrs later and Hooch was the best family dog ever along with working bulldog I'd ever seen. He never knew defeat man or beast and everyone old and young, officials and laymen told me I had a one of a kind dog.


Every situation is different ... an 8 week old puppy bites everything.. Hell I got some that are dogs now at 5 months and the size of most 8week old pups and still act like it.

Correct the behavior with a deep AT sound, don't shake the walls but let the dog know.. .. .. NO BITE

simple as that...
