Herding?

So, we just got a 4 month old female pit bull mix from the shelter yesterday. This is not our first pit bull, so we're pretty familiar with some of the behaviors. However, tonight, she started trying to herd my 6 year old. He ran down the stairs and ran to the bathroom and she ran next to him and started nipping his ankles.

We had our son do the same thing about 30 more times and immediately worked on correcting and rewarding desired behavior (treating and praising when she looked at me instead of chasing him).

Anyone heard/seen pittie doing this? Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Nope, but being a mix you never know what's in there.

We have a blue heeler lab mix. She herded Cain when we first got him. Occasionally she will herd my husband lol. Who knows what could be mixed with yours though.

I had a mix with Queensland Heeler in him and he would do that to mad dads old lab mix lol. He'd just randomly do it to the cats too. I could never ever break him of it, I think it was just one of those things hard wired in his brain lol. He was a good dog though. He's the litte red dog in my sig pic

Herding?

My parents have a pure bred Rat Terrier and he does that. When I was younger I had some really wide leg gap jeans and I would run through the house stomping and he would pen me up to a chair or the wall and bite my pant legs. Well we all thought it was a hoot LOL. Then one day my mom had on some wide leg jeans and was trying to "spank me" for saying a curse word (I was probably 20 and she has bad arthritis lol) and Jingle Bells trying to get her pants actually bit her leg and drew blood. It wasn't so funny after that so good for you stopping it now! Getting a mix you have pretty much no idea what's in there but it's fun to mix in all the personalities and traits it's like a puppy mixing box if chocolates lol. Sometimes you get the truffles and sometimes you get those yucky cough syrup tasting nougat ones

LOL! I love your comparison of puppies to a box of chocolates. Thanks for the replies. We're definitely going to continue working on this. I figure it is something she is Mixed with, but looking at her, I have no idea. Oh well, she's just my Abbey girl!

My pup herds balls not people (unless its trying to get me to detour to the fridge) and no heel nipping, lol.
