Helpful Hints needed!:-)

We have a pit mix that is the sweetest girl, but has some aggressive tendencies. I would like some suggestive tips before they become and issue. I also heard that pits mature at 2 and there has been stories where they turn "super aggressive." The incident that I am referring to is, a friend rescued a pit pup raised it. I am not sure in what capacity. For example, my dogs come in and out of my house. They are part of the family and are not left outside all time. Shortly after the dog turned 2, it tore apart her Dachshund dog and then came after her husband. Has anyone ever heard of anything like this. I volunteer for dog rescue and have been around many adult pits that even strangers can get in their faces. They are sweet and docile dogs as far as I know.

OK-my issue is when Belle, our pit mix, when she was a put about 11 pounds she would jump on on of our other dogs from a leaping jump from our couch and go toward the neck. You know the area where the mom dog picks up the pup. The play never seemed too rough and she was the smallest one. She used to nip and bite at my kids and we stopped that too. They still can't play chase w/ her b/c she'll nip them in the butt and she's 1yr now.

We have 3 dogs and are fostering a pup. She plays tug-of-war w/ him when we are home and no signs of aggression. They had all been doing great, so we decided to leave the pup (about 14 weeks old) out to play in the yard while we went out to dinner. When we got back home Belle had put a tooth mark in his hip and under one shoulder. Our neighbor saw it, so we are sure which dog it was. Our other 2 dogs just stood by.

We kennel the pup now when we have to go off, but they play great when we are at home. I cannot remember if we allowed her to "mouth" when she was a pup or not. She is the most assertive dog I have ever owned and def wants to be the alpha. She herds and barks the other dogs into the house when we are all out back playing and then coming back in the house. The nipping/barking at the other dogs...especially my boxer. He is so tolerant. Every now and then he puts her in her place, but he's so laid back. If she is over stimulated, like if my kids are loud or we get on the trampoline outside, she begins to chase her tail. She can't come out of the cycle of chasing her tail until we give her a command to do something else.


She's such a precious sweet girl, but I think there are some issues that we could work on and make better. I would love any advice!!! Thanks!

Would like to know some answers to the last 2 posts because Dice also has the "I'm gonna bark at you when you get mad at me and tell me no" issue. Not with me but with my husband if they are playing around and then my husband will tell him something and he will bounce around and bark back at my husband. He also does it to my other dogs, like "hey, pay attention to me" or "you can't talk to me like that".

Wondering if that is just his personality and puppy play, he's only about 3 months old.

yeah, he is playing, testing you IMO. 3 months he just learned how to bark, lol. you can discourage it by stopping playing, saying no BARK, until he doesn't bark anymore and then resume playing. If he barks, stop again until he is clam and resume. Basically gotta teach him in order to get your attention, no barks.

i thought i was having problems w/ my pup of 2 months, I read into the problem and found out that if you yell OUCH!! when they bite, they stop and pause for a moment. It really worked for my pup, she just licks my hand when she gets close to my fingers when she plays with her rope toy. In regards to barking at you during play, you should say NO BARK!! and walk away. He/she will reflect on the inceident and miss you.

if your dog is nipping, try covering their teeth with skin from their gums, as they bite down, they bite themselves... issue will be resolved quickly

Omg I've never heard that before. Funny what works with each dog is different. I would not do that way though im far too slow i would totally be asking to have my finger still between the gums hahaha a firm OUCH an then fold arms and stop playing until they calm down. Then resume playing and if it happens again OUCH and fold arms and wait.

Unhappy Snapping doggie

Hello,

I need advise!! I have a 1 year old pitt and a 2 year old Rottie/english bull dog mix. When the Rottie was about 2 years old we got the pitt as a puppy. They have been together ever since. We have never had problems with them until recently. The Pitt has snapped at the other dog twice now and from what I believe nothing was going on. The most recent time was this morning when the Pitt was eating the rottie was just standing there watching at a good distance away (btw has done this before and nothing happened). I was attempting to get the Rottie to follow me but the Pitt just kept staring at her and then snapped and starting fighting with her. I had to pull her off and scolled her. She then ran to her kennal. The other time the pitt was just laying on the couch and the other one came up to her because my girlfriend was on the couch with her and the pitt just snapped again.

I dont know what else to do but scolled them when it happends. I dont want to have to give the Pitt away since I have been with her since she was a puppy. They are both females. The rottie is fixed and the pitt just went through her first heat cycle. Does that have anything to do with it? or does the pitt think she needs to protect me? its making me sad and very nervious.

Thank you!

I've been looking for a good consistent solutions to the biting/mouthing. Our dog is 14 months old so still a puppy. She gets into these so "excited" states sometimes it's hard to bring her down. She then starts nipping/mouthing to play. We can't seem to get her to stop long enough to play.

If she is trying to bite/mouth my husband, he is usually fast enough to get her by the scruff. When he does, she goes down fast and will stay down, but then once he lets go and about a minute goes by...back at it.

Luckily, so far she does not bite hard. However, we are not trying to tolerate this behavior at all. We have also tried the 'OUCH' thing, but it's like that's still just a fun for her.

We are starting obedience training as a family this week and this is top priority for us. If any one continues to find new ways or have additional advice, we would gladly take it. I will continue to watch for new advice.

I have taken a look at this thread and I have also poked around a bit to try and find the answer.

My question is what is what happens when the dog is older? Our dog Rocky has always had a play bite nature. We got him at about 6 months old as the prev owners were bad people to say the least. We have tried to teach him not to bite or mouth but he is very very excited and loves to play. We are not sure if he was removed from his mother early or not as his history before we had is a mystery. How do we stop this? At times it gets very rough.

When I feel Maggie's teeth on me, I let out a loud yelp and turn my shoulder to her.
She's pretty good about it now, but she's 11 months old. Her brain goes to mush sometimes. I allow licking and mouthing, but no teeth.

I'm doing the same thing with Bizmark, the doodle I just rescued. When I yelp and turn away, I can see the confusion in his eyes. Then he wanders off a bit to chew on his paw and sort things out. He's getting the idea quickly.

We have tried the yelp trick. We have tried the Cesar touch way. You name it I think we have tried it. It almost seems like some times he is the most gentle dog and what a cuddle bug. Then others he takes play time to the extreme. Running around. Making nipping gestures. Things like that. We want to teach him good behaviour as it's super hard to have people over and not having the trust in Rocky that he won't do anything or hurt anyone.
