Pit Fits

Hi all, I have a 1 1/2 year old female pitty named Rocsi. I don't have any problems with her except for her pit fits and constant jumping. When she gets really excited she likes to run away from me, spin in circles, jump on the couch/bed and sometimes nip at my hands when I try to catch her. This usually happens when I am trying to wrangle her to put her in her room whenever I leave the house and it is extremely frustrating. I understand that I should not chase her because it turns into a game, but I do not know how to stop her from getting so excited and dodging when I REALLY need her to come. She also does this when we are outside playing. I tell everyone that if she was a sports athlete, she would be a football running back because she is SUPER elusive, and loves to keep whatever she has away from you. When she is calm, she completes her commands without any problem (come, sit, stay, lay down, shake, high five, etc). Anyway, any tips for me on how to stop this behavior and the jumping on people? (We have already had an unfortunate freak accident with a stranger because of her jumping and I do not want to have that trouble again.)

Thanks in advance.

Sounds like she may need more exercise than what she is getting. My German Shepherd mix does this when its been icky out for a while and she hasn't gotten to play outside. Maybe take her for a 30 minute walk or fetch session before you leave.

super cute. Welcome! Lots of people call them the zoomies. They don't ever stop but they can be controlled. Now my boy doesn't nip and all 4 paws stay on the ground, but he is still a crazy boy running and jumping lol just not on people. He is 4.

Take a look at the training threads. I would start with these and if you have specific questions let us know. i would start by teaching LOOK and COME inside the house without distractions before moving to outside. Don't start a new trick until he gets the one you are working on 9 out of 10 times asking him. Train daily in 10 minute increments ONLY.

Thanks. I am certain that is a part of it and she is almost a completely different dog when she gets a good amount of play. I am super busy and this nasty Chicago winter weather/lack of sunlight does not help. I do make it a habit to walk her at least twice a day (about 15 minutes each) because I know how important the exercise it for her (and my sanity). I will work on increasing her play as I can.
