Growling while playing.

well i was wondering if this may be a bad thing. I always play with rambo with my hands, i shove my hand in his face and tap his nose and push him around, when i start to push him away from my hand he starts growling a lot. When he does get a hold of my hand he just nibbles, never bites of hurts me. Any time while playing i put my fist up (to sit) he stops right away and sits. Everything seems great but my room mates are worried. One time we where playing in the backyard (when i first got him) and he started growling, their husky didn't like this and when he nipped rambo in butt, he lit him up (kind of surprised b/c they get along so well, and the huskies 90lbs+). So im assuming he was in aggressive mode when he attacked. To be honest he's a bit of a sissy. He's normally always the one getting attacked and beat up at the dog park. Anyway im just trying to figure out if i should stop it immediately? He's 7 months old.

Have a read of this thread. https://www.gopitbull.com/obedience-t...g-war-her.html

The growling is not something I'd worry about. The dog park on the other hand, is.

Well to start off, dog parks are not a good place for bully breeds, or dogs in general.

Here's a thread on that.

Dogs growl while playing, I wouldn't be worried about that. If he bites hard while playing yell, "OUCH". Pups should learn bite inhibition.

I'm not getting a good picture of the incident with the Siberian Husky, why was he growling?

He could have been trying to correct the pup, or some dogs just dislike puppies because they associate them with rude behavior.

I wouldn't call that aggression, generally a dog who is truly aggressive wouldn't have stopped attacking.

i had to separate them, but it's not like rambo had a death grip on him either, i was more of a little scuffle, they've had a few of those since the husky is food aggressive and rambo is a pup and very curious, as long as there is no food around their fine. Anyway he has never growled at a person or another dog.

He is fine, just dont do it around other dogs as you will have the same problems over and over. And stay away from dog parks.

Problem solved.

Is your dog insecure??? Other dogs may pick up on that and gang up on him so taking him wouldn't be a good idea. That's what it sounds like to me? If that's the case I'd work on building his confidence more. And these types of dogs usually growl when they're playing. (tugging) But if he's growling at you when you take the toy away?? I'd correct that.
