My Pitbull Keeps Biting My 2 y/o Daughter

Luckily my pitbull 'Taz' is just a 3 month old puppy but I'm trying to break bad habits from now.

If my daughter runs in the yard, Taz will chase her and nip at her legs.

If she's sitting on the floor with any of her toys, he'll start nipping to get it from her.

And he's constantly pulling on her clothes if she's walking.

I've bought him a few chew toys but he seems to prefer a rock he found in the yard. Whenever I catch him nipping at my daughter, I shout a stern no, and give him his rock (chew toy).

This only solves the problem temporarily and as soon as I'm not looking, he's back at it again. (I've found that pitbulls are very smart and they know to do things they're not supposed to when you're not looking).

I just cant afford to have Taz fully grown and not know that it's 100% NOT tolerated to bite my 2 y/o daughter.

Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks...

you must be very patient, but very consistant and teach them that jumping,nipping and biting is very bad. Do NOT use a kennel or their bed as a punishment. Roll up some newspaper with rubber bands and hit ur hand and say NO firmly

Do you think it could be something he'll grow out and stop doing?

I'm hoping that maybe it's because he's teething maybe??

I think they might also be feeding off each others excitement. 2 is a crazy age isn't it, plus isnt it usually RUN and STOP at that age? good luck!!? lol

Do you have balls or toys for him to be teething? That lasts a while too so I would look into getting some. But you, as well as any kids or family members need to make an over exaggerated sound and stop giving the dog attention until they calm down. My boy got excited when I would come home. I gave him a chuckit ball every time I came home I would grab one and put it in his mouth and he runs around all excited and doesn't jump or nip. Now when he ears someone coming up the stairs I the door he jumps up looks for his ball and can't wait to see who is coming in lol

I think that's probably the most likely thing. My girl was a WILD CHILD at 3 months too. Puppies tend to play rough, and just keep correcting him-- he'll get it. I make this loud, guttural AAAAAAATTTTTT sound at mine when they are doing something 'bad'... once they understood it, they knew it meant what they were doing HAD to stop immediately. Make sure you don't reward bad behavior (don't pet him or give him any treats or toys) and praise praise praise when he is doing good things. Especially biting toys Biting toys is good-- biting people gets him ignored. Dogs thrive on attention and will do ANYTHING to get it.
Good luck!

Hey Mamatank thanks for your response. It's certainly a relief to hear that you've been through it too and that they grow it out.

I have come under a lot of pressure from family and friends about getting a pit-bull with my 2 year old but I strongly believe that these dogs arent born bad at all.

I think bad/irresponsible owners give them a bad rep. So I've been doing all that I can to make sure that my pit is well trained, well behaved and well rounded pet...
