Unhappy need help, my family doesnt understand

i need help. i have an 8 week puppy who is all around very well behaved. he is not hyper he is doing well with house breaking and if anything he is too calm. he does however growl atmy husband when he picks him up when he is sleeping, not me but only not me. he also plays very rough with my other two dogs, he growls and bites pretty good. he growls very loudly too. i need to fix this issue because most of my family is against my decision to own a pit in the first place. im not giving him up and i want to show him how well behaved he is but we just need to work out these kinks first. also any statistics i can hit my family with? that would be good.

well.... lets see where to start lol... always a tough one convincing fam...

well first and foremost, you have a puppy. and a puppy will be a puppy. your dog may be a little more vocal or rough just becuase thats his personality. My dog was vocal when she was younger... just the way she was... what could help ease the tension would be consistant training. if you can train the pup to stop whatever he is doing, barking, biting, running, rolling act and have him sit and focus on you, your family will see u have complete control over you dog. i know with kenya, WHATEVER she is doing, the moment i say "eyes" shell stop come to me and sit and look at me. when i say "go ahead" she is allowed to go back to whatever she is doing.

growling: your husband needs to correct that behavior. he needs to tell the pup to stop, or tap his nose. the pup for the most part is playing IMO, i dont think he is challanging anyone yet.

your fams gonna have their opinions, but the best way to convince them is to show how well behaved your dog is. knows all his commands, listens, and is lovable.

thats my advice, im sure some of the more seasoned owners will have some imput. as i only have experience with my one pooch lol

goodluck

Keep in mind that one day your dogs might not get along. Are you prepared to crate and rotate if the puppy gets older? When they are young they need to learn how to play. Usually rough housing will get a reprimand from the older dog teaching the younger pup their limits.

Also never ever leave your dogs alone unattended, puppy or grown. And never leave your dogs around kids. This goes for all breeds not just pit bull type dogs.
