Dog aggression is not curable. It is a desired trait, and it took years of selective breeding to make your dog hate other dogs. Ain't that awesome? No, you don't have to put the dog down, you have to learn how to take care of a pit bull.

Jane is an unknown quantity at this point
It is interesting reading what advice people give... I have met plenty of pitbulls that are not dog aggressive. I have met plenty of dogs that are not pitbulls that are dog aggressive. All animals have a time in their very early stages of life of being 'imprinted', learning certain behaviors due to their environment and then the behaviors sticking with them. It seems pointless to try to blame something on the bad behavior but to just figure out how to deal with it. Cesar Milan gets a bad rap, but I enjoy watching and listening to him and assume that he is real and that he is not full of lies. He would not agree that you cannot train a dog out of being aggressive. Here is an episode of the Dog Whisperer that you might like:
It is kind of a long one, but it is very inspiring and I know because I am also working with a dog with aggression.
Ultimately, though, it sounds like you don't have a whole lot of time on your hands. Could that be part of the problem? I hope things work out for you.

Cesar is an idiot... check out the other Cesar threads if you have questions. I'm hoping you read this whole thread and what people said about this breed being bred for the pit. Would you put a border collie in a field of sheep and try and train it not to heard? You may have a little success but the second that BC gets a chance to be free and away from you they are going to do what instinct tells them. You are fighting an instinct behavior not a training issue. You sound very nieve and you are newer to the breed. Hopefully you stick around learn what this breed is all about. Just because you have had a little success with DA doesn't mean that can happen with all pits and it also doesn't mean you are not going to have a problem later. I have had bitches get along for 9 years..... 9 years they were best buds till one day they hate each other. This is completely normal and what pit owners do not need is some asshat on TV to give them a false sense of security that it's all in how the dogs are raised bullcrap...... My suggestion is that you do some research about what this breed was bred and raised for.

The last thing this breed needs is someone trying to give bad advice that you can train the DA out of a pitbull.

Nuh uh! Most owners don't have the ability to guarantee an accident won't happen...no matter how you raise them, the minute they decide to think for themselves, it's on! Don't encourage setting up a dog to fail! You should be pushing responsible ownership and not "if I can do it, you can do it". That and a cup of kibble will give you

Put a Bulldog down for dog aggression? Jesus..

Rehome to someone experienced if your not willing tonset aside the pride and accept how these ''type'' of animals are genetically.

Even the most experienced of folk have accidental yard scraps or fights throughout their life times, no one is perfect and we all have duh moments. However if you dont learn from those moments you are unable to gain from this and in thr end it will happen again and again..

Thats all i have to offer because it has all been said too many times and research should have been done before getting a Bulldog or a dog with Bulldog in the genes, these dogs are noy for everyone and many realize this too late.

If you think cesaer has not had "accidents " on his yard you are poorly mistaken. There are video's that show him setting dogs up to fail and having them go at it on camera and having people scramble cause they didn't read the body language of the dogs and break it up before it go to a fight. He is an idiot who plays on the fur mommys heart strings and makes it seem like this breed is perfect for doggy parks and little play dates. This breed is what it is, why do people want to change things that dont need to be changed. If you want a doggy park play buddy then get a different breed. If people just researched breeds and got what SUITS their lifestyle and home and wants in a dog there would be alot less reports of this breed in the media.

Krista YOu are just wayyyy off base with your comment on it being the owners. There are people on here that are way more qualified in training, working and have owned this breed longer then you who DO have dog aggressive dogs, to say it is them is ABSURD. You just lucked out to have some watered down , possibly mixed or just a curr of a dog to never have dealt with it. I hope you educate yourself enough before you end up getting another dog and heaven forbid find out it is NOT all in the owner. Heaven forbid you learn the hard way. You are lucky you dogs have not been reactive yet but never say never. Seen some dogs in there elder years change to become dog aggressive it is never too late.

Christ almighty the Dog Whisperer really? I know its easy to get all caught up in the glitz and glamour of TV trainers but, geez! I like Caesar for his character because he does try and promote the breed in a good way but, in the same since can't stand him because he fills inexperienced pitbull owners with nonsense. These dogs were bred to be DA so no if your dog is DA you will never be able to train it out of them. Some are trainable in the sense of avoidance but, that in itself only goes so far. Just either educate yourself on owning a DA dog or rehome the dog to an experienced person. There is no need to kill the dog for something that is just there. You wouldn't kill and ACD for chasing cattle would you? What about a Beagle for killing or chasing a rabbit? Every dog has its purpose and that purpose was bred into them and most have the natural instinct of their job.

Thats not right your suppose to plan things out before you get a dog it like having a baby, it's serious.
How to put this nicely... Your EXACTLY whats wrong with people today and the modern mindset. God forbid a dog acts how it was traditionally bred for, well.. A shadow of it anyhow.. You would HATE my k9s and i csn tell you right now they are healthier, stronger and smarter than what most feed.. Especially those likr you.. Them super cur get away with anything becsuse they so damn cute wittle fur ball bullshit.

Educate yourself and learn to deal with the DA and work the dog with a ball or a flirt and get em some excercise. OR find a more suitable home you can use the local shelter and keep the dog at your house in many cases sometimes they take the dog spay/neuter it and its gone before the next puppy gets picked, cause someone wants a "pitbull" ..

Clearly you said your uneducated and you've gotten lil rolled here but you have gotten good advice along the way.

Pay attention to what is being advised when questions asked no matter how you "feel" because how you "feel" isnt getting you the results you want is it? I tell this to anyone asking for advice now days in some shape or form. Usually the best advice is what we don't want to hear.

Best of luck to ya!

Some people don't get it and never will. Most of what needs to be said has been said. But yes Lisa, that bugs me when I see people tryin to buy an e collar and expect it to instantly make their issues go away. its a tool and if u don't know how to use it, it will never work properly.

Ok not to feed the trolls or anything, but just watched the Caesar clip. Kinda kills me that the couple seemed to have a good routine crate and rotating then looks like Caesar is about to come in a eff it up. Man they really will end up with one dead dog sooner or later. smh

Wow. This is an accident waiting to happen. You have two powerful dogs in the hands of inexperienced owners. What's going to happen is those dogs are going to get loose one day and hurt someone, or they are going to end up killing each other. Even if they seem like best friends with each other, pit bulls are such devastating fighters, all it takes is a temper tantrum from one of them and one of them could get killed. In my opinion, if you and your husband don't have the time or resources to properly own those dogs, the best thing to do is give them up. Its not worth a lawsuit or someone getting hurt.

Lol at so many pit bulls not being dog aggressive. That's because the mass population of "pit bulls" aren't American Pit Bull Terriers. The general public has no clue what an APBT is. Pit bull was a nick name for the APBT but since this whole BSL dangerous dog crap they've turned that nick name into a descriptive word. Since they couldn't properly identify the breed they came up with a check list based on the UKC and AKC standards. If any dog has 50% of their "pit characteristics" it's labeled at pit bull, no matter what breed it actually is. American Bullies, Mastiffs, American Bulldogs, Persas, Dogos, even boxer and lab mixes are labeled as pit bulls. Often times when you hear someone talking about their "pit" they're most likely talking about a look a like breed, or a paperless mutt that conforms to the pit characteristics.
