My Pit is acting retarted

So I just got a pit. Now everything bad she does, I place her in the bathroom for 1 min. and 45 secs. So if she attempts to bite me, starts biting shoes, I put her in the bathroom. I give her a firm no, however she does not listen. I try replacing my hand with a toy and she just tries toi bite my hands . Comments?

Pups only 8 weeks right? If so, you're just gunna have to keep working with her. It takes time, don't expect the dog to be perfect at 8 weeks. That's all I got for ya! haha

How old is the pup? If she is 8 weeks then you have a bit more of work ahead of you... The pup isn't acting retarded, it's acting like a baby.

I wouldn't do the bathroom thing, she is going to REALLY hate that bathroom.

With bites, just give her something and ignore her for a minute. Also start some basic obedience training.

If I remember correctly, Johnathan.. in a previous post you made (your introduction), you were instructed to use the crate you have, and not the bathroom. It would be more beneficial to you and safer for her b/c in the bathroom, she can peel the paint off the walls, or get into something that can cause harm or poison her. She's not acting retarded, she's a puppy, and needs to be given guidance and discipline. You should read here, for starters, and this should help you out.

ahhh yes how i love those little needle teeth

my little dude is almost 14 weeks and we are still working on the hand nipping (now he's running up behind me and biting my calf when im walking, that sucks). like the others said its a puppy thats how they play. if she is biting tell them no (like you mean it) and give them something appropriate to chew/bite. and don't worry, the craziest puppy i ever had turned out to be one of the most mellow adult dogs i ever had.

When your pup bites make a loud yelp like another pup would do and then turn your back on her. Then tell her no chew on this and give her a chew toy. It may take a while but she'll get it. The loud yelp is what other pups would do so she will understand that better then "NO" at this point. Just keep on her training and she should do just fine. Good luck and I hope she gets it quick

Both good posts. He's not acting retarded ( i hate that word and find it offensive) he's acting like a puppy.You can't expect a puppy to catch on and learn quick.Remember it's a dog,not a person.It will take time and patience.

It doesn't work by magic. This is your first week with the puppy right? Patience and perseverance and you'll look back on this time and laugh.

+1 on not using the bathroom as punishment. Personally, I wouldn't use the crate as punishment either. That's supposed to be her safe place and if she associates it with punishment she won't want to go in there to sleep and you'll have to put up with more crying. I never use "time out" type punishments with my dogs. They don't really get it. Their memory doesn't work like ours and she won't be thinking "oh right, I'm in here because I did that bad thing". She won't put the two things together.

Any punishment you use should be short and immediate. A "NO!" or growl or something like that but then as soon as she does what you want you need to praise her.

Something you might consider doing is using the "calm puppy" method:

Get your puppy used to being VERY GENTLY subdued - in a sort of "hug" position. No I am not talking about squeezing or being abusive - just very calmly restricting his movements. Do this several times until he calms down while in the position.

Play with your puppy, but every time he bites you inappropriately (you'll know the difference between gentle and inappropriate), put him in the "calm puppy" position. The more you do this, your puppy will begin to associate biting down on soft human skin with "hey, I have to stop playing!"

If you do not want to use the "calm puppy" position, you can just stop playing altogether every time he makes decent contact with your skin. This is actually what we did with our little girl, Annie, and it worked out beautifully. She now has a very strong aversion to biting down when we are playing with her - if she even bits down a teeny tiny bit, she looks at us with big sad eyes as if to say "I didn't mean to, I promise! Let's keep playing!"
