Welcome. Tons of feed back but not sure how much you are looking for or what type you need. Have you read about NILIF? I would start there. Take a look at some training threads and any sordid questions just ask.

NLIF? No I haven't but I'm on it right now. Don't even know what that is, but I'm to find out.
LOL, thanks for your response. Any and all feedback is welcomed especially interested in hearing from those like myself who didn't have the luxury of getting their dog at 12 weeks.

Aww congrats cant wait to see pics Tons of info to read here I would just start in the training section and read up. Hopefully you have already researched the breed to know about things like dog aggression and what not { that typically wont kick in until maturity 1-2 years , but good to understand it now}. If this is your first dog you may want to look into some basic puppy classes or something after he has settled in. You want a people friendly dog just stay on top of socializing and allowing him to meet and greet lots of new people. Welcome to the forum

Yeah we try to get in as much socializing as possible. It's cold these past days so we try to keep his walks close to home....not a lot of people out doors this time of year. Plus with the kennel cough and low immune system we were very cognizant of other people and their dogs health. Otherwise he's a great addition to the household. Can't wait til this winter chill passes though, meanwhile he's the absolute best. I've had a shepherd, a dobie and a border collie in the past. . . but this guy is clearly a unique dog.
Sort of resembles all the past dogs in different ways too. This breed is a magnificent dog and apparently misunderstood. My eight year old son loves him but needs to establish and maintain his pack position but that's another thread.

Got my first pit and a handful

Jayke alexander is a year old and so hyper. Had no basic training kept in a pen owner decided to find a home for him. Staffordshire Terrier to me I'm thinking medium size dog didn't know he was a pit. Met the dog very friendly got his medical records and he loaded him in my car. Seemed to enjoy going for a ride. My grandson tells me that Jayke is a pitbull. I tell him No he is a Staffordshire Terrier. He says it's just a fancy name for a pitbull and tells me horror stories.
well I have had him for 2 months and he is smart. Learned the basics Sit,Stay,Down, Walk on a leash. Housebroken. Had a chew problem even thro he has all kinds of toys made for big dogs including nylonbones. Sprayed vinegar on my wood items and he stopped the damaging.
He is very loving,likes people but aggressive towards male dogs. He is neutered. I have been reading about the breed and know he needs to be more social but his age and not being trained as a pup concerns me.

Before you get all wild and crazy with the socialization you may want to look into a 2-week shutdown for your new companion. Your new dog is going to need time to adjust to you and your home before you go bombarding him with the outside world.

Also - read up on why NOT to take your petbull to the dog park.

Welcome and congrats on your new addition.

Yeah .... dog parks!.....Oh boy......last Sunday great time.....first time ever then I finally let him off leash....Looked like a totally idiot, newbie - I can laugh now!
He had a blast, the park was packed with dogs, there was another pit there too! Anyway, Rocco is doing his thing, friendly, not causing trouble but NOT tolerating much either.
Finally this gentleman walks over to me and says "he's pretty well behaved". I say thank you
and before long he says "when they get tired, they get a little irritable" .... "that's when I pull mine out, he learns - bad attitude means we go home".
Forty five minutes later Rocco is snapping and growling and getting into beefs at every turn. I call him he comes over calms down and runs back into another little squirmish, I call him out and we leave. I think, okay the older guy was right, Rocco did good for almost an hour.
We'll come back next week and damn the articles about don't do it.
So today I take him again, O..M..G! Not even ten minutes, and he has serious issues with this dog ....really serious - UGLY and serious. We leave , I won't try it again. For the sake of NOT SETTING MY DOG UP FOR FAILURE...this is anyone wanting to do the dog park cause your pup is well behaved, and he is different and it'll be fine. Nope, it's not for us.
