By the way.....
Questions:
Whats better dry food or can food at his age?
In cups how much food should I give him?
What the best times to feed?
How many times a day should I feed him?
If he doesn't eat it all should I leave the bowl out?

These are all rookie questions you asked not to mention your introduction thread. So how could you possibly think you know so much now? Weird how you have become a breed and behavioral expert in such short time!

Im gonna quote myself here by saying 90% of us go through this, some earlier, some later, myself included.. though about Martial Arts in my case.. do you really think you are able to do what ALL the other seasoned trainers and dogmen of old couldnt.. ?

Ill tell you this and it just needs to seat itself in that head of yours..
I AM NOT CONDONING THE FOLLOWING STATEMENT

Take your silly behind to the dog parks with your "pitbull", go walk around the dog beach, go play fetch in the park, and frolic around the world, go promote the better side of the breed, We do love the good attention! AND I PROMISE YOU, maybe or maybe not this dog, but ONE DAY you will see what we have all tried to teach you. Then you will see, and you will also become another part of the problem..

Ill share a photo for you...



and look at the COUNTLESS other pictures on here showing others' dogs in the loving light we love ! WE ALL KNOW HOW YOU FEEL AND WHAT YOURE SAYING!

Listen to me or go talk to those with dogs titled with CGC, TT , SafeDog or other well respected titles (I got the safedog ) Even the most well trained need not be running around off leash ESPECIALLY with other strange dogs and no supervision.

You're not getting what we're trying to say.Every single apbt,amstaff,american bully comes from fighting dogs of the past.
Yes you can train them to be a little less DA or ignore other dogs while out in public.But you should not test their obediance while off leash in a public place.
Should you socialize your pup,you bet!Socialize with as many people and situations that you can.Heck even socialize with other dogs while they are still young.But why chance something happening when he gets older in the publics eye?
Here's what training their DA will get you.Very nice and calm indoors with each other.But you better bet I don't let them play outside together.The play will go to rough housing then to fighting if not stopped,and they have been around each other and socialized with other dogs since pups.
If you cannot accept what these dogs are or where they came from then you shouldn't own one.

Those questions were asked for the following reasons..
I've had many pitbulls all fed under diferent guidlines. I've used diferent approches and some worked some didn't. I asked to see what the so called experts can advise as I would like to balance this dog as much as posible. Unfortunatly I didn't get much out of the questios. So I asked simba's vet who advises me with clarity. As far as behavioral expert, I'm not gonna close my self in with idiotic opinions from people who surpress their dogs.

From what I've gathered on this forum no one has had anything worth reading exept kingirl who I feel made more cense in one paragraph then all the post set by other people.

It's quite simple, really. Do not put your dog in situations you can not control. Don't let it make it's own decisions at places like a dog park and KNOW your particular dog.... not what you WANT your particular dog to be, but how will he or she react in a given situation. Learn to read dog body language and be aware that DOGS become less tolerant of rude behavior as they mature and it is your responsibility to prevent them from being in a situation where they need to handle it themselves. That's your job.

Today I walked Simba and ran into a neighbor walking his very large pit bull whom I never spoke to. I notice that when we got about 50 feet from each other he tightened his leash and pulled his dog back to let me pass. from looking at Simba's body language and tail i could see that Simba was eager to play and mingle. I quickly asked him to please let his dog come closer and smell Simba. I knew that it could be bad but I felt confident that if we exercise this it could be a good thing. He was a little hesitant at first but then He slowly let his dog named black come closer and closer to Simba but still a little tensed. Looking at black's tail I can see that he was curious but not in an aggressive manner. They got closer and closer and then it happened. We both let them smell each other and Simba being still a pup ran around him gave him a friendly bark. Black's ears did flicked back a bit and got into a more playful posture. Simba's tail was wagging at 100mph and Black's was wagging also. If his tail would of been pointed strait up or wagging sort of slow I would of took that as a sigh of confidence and negative tension. At this point I knew that with more practice this was doable. We got to talking and walking and both Simba and Black were both walking together as if they were best pals.

After talking with my new found neighbor Ron I gathered that he did't think Black was social like that as he recently rescued him and never lets him around other dogs for fear of aggression. As we parted both Black and Simba were sort of sad to go separate ways. I rewarded Simba and told him how good a boy he is.

These are little steps im making to get Simba exposed to different experiences and situations as a puppy. I understand not all situations will run as smooth but without effort their wont be results.

You can continue to tighten the leash on your dog every time you cross another dog or you can communicate with the other owner and both make efforts to have more social and balanced dogs.
Or you can Just be ignorant and keep adding to the myths..

well thats a good start and maybe you can work something out where the TWO of them can have suppervised play dates some time. Thats all anyone here is saying SUPERVISE and in control unlike dog parks. Just to note too simba is young and most of our dogs whether they are DA now or not got along and played with other dogs at that age, its when they hit the 1year - 2year mrk where you just need to be more aware of signs , body langauge ect. As well most adults willtolerate pups alot better then they will other adults, even one of my Da males like pups of both sexes.

I don't suppress my dog, but I also refuse to set him up to fail by putting him in a situation I have no control over. No one else that has comments on these threads suppress their dogs either, so watch what you are saying about people. You are not READING what we are WRITING.

here is my boy and his bdf




and when I had him meet new dogs this is how they are introduced, so I have CONTROL over the situation. They were not allowed without the gate until their SECOND meeting, and still it is controlled.


your dog will look to you for how he should react, he should not just want to go up to a dog and sniff it until YOU allow him to do this. Letting him make his own decision will not help you later when he doesn't know you are in charge and you are the one he should look to in any situation, not making the decision himself.

Also, someone mentioned that this isnt the only breed that has DA, of course it isn't but those breeds do not have the same endurance as bully breeds. They give up and get tired out or bored and move on. Bulldogs do NOT get bored in the middle of a fight and just walk away. They want to finish what they started, because that's in their nature. the key is to CONTROL situations, as you explained above with 2 dogs on leash and both owners around.

You are not understanding we all want the best for our dogs and the breed they represent just by the way they look. Making it anything else is downright shameful.

Now I think your just trying to be hard headed. No one ever said don't socialize your dog. I have just said in every one of my posts that a bulldog should never be off leash when not on your o ( or some friends ) private property.

And yeah your dog is a little young if you can remember i love to know how the same two dogs you talked about today get along 2 years from now.
You can be safe with your dog and respect the history or you can be irresponsible and add to the negative stereo types. With that being said I don't look to argue with folks on forums I think you may have missed some things I said I never said do not socialize your dogs... You should just do so in a controlled environment, not at the park or the lake or what ever public place. No need to get defensive.
Just curious How is this pup bred? If you don't mind me asking.

I'm glad Simba made a friend (and you did too) in a nicely controlled situation. As someone else mentioned, maybe you guys could walk together or have some supervised play dates as the dogs become better acquainted. This is a far better socialization experience for your pup than the dog park.
