DA in puppy?

My 9 wk old pup plays extremely rough! So rough I have to keep her and my morkie separated which is very stressful. She stayed the weekend with her mom, dad and another litter mate (they were dog sitting for me) and I was told how aggressive she can get while playing. So aggressive she drew blood on the other puppy's nose. Obviously my little morkie can never play with her but my question is if this is the start of DA early or is she just being a dominant puppy. I have her enrolled in puppy classes but they have not started yet. I plan on socializing her as much as possible, on a leash of course, with other friends dogs. I guess I am looking for a little reassurance on her behavior. I understand it is genetic and I will always be around if she is with another animal. This is my first pit and aside from researching a lot I look for advice from other owners. My family and friends have many pits who are all fantastic which is why I got this puppy. I will do everything in my power to allow her full pittie potential to shine.

How old was she when you took her from the breeder? It's possible she didn't learn bite inhibition. But it's also possible she is just never going to do well around other dogs. Plan for the worst and hope for the best.

She was 8wks. It was my nieces two dogs who had the litter. She was there last weekend and her nipping at us has dramatically decreased. I plan on her visiting often. I always plan for the worst. We have so many dogs in the family and they all get along great. I was hoping my pup would too, not alone but with all of us. We will have to wait and see I guess. Thank you.

If she visits her siblings often you will probably see her stop being so rough with you. But bull breeds have a genetic predisposition to be DA. So don't rule it out, even if she stops being a little monster.
Some are OK with others, some are selectively DA, and others don't care what it is, they just want it dead. Fingers crossed yours is the OK with others type. It's easier in family situations like that.

With that being said it's likely a bite inhibition issue. While visiting your pup most likely got some lessons from mom, dad and siblings that her behavior was too rough and unnecessary. To continue that lesson at home, every time she bites, snips, plays aggressive yelp loudly followed by a no and walk away. This is his dogs teach bite inhibition and how to play to each other. Make sure you're consistent and that you're not giving any attention after (positive or negative if possible) at least for a few minutes. Visits with mom and dad and family will help as well. As long as you're consistent she should pick it up. Just remember she's very young so it's always one step forward, one step back but with patience and consistency she should learn that she's being too rough and scale it back.

All that said, this does NOT rule out potential issues with DA now or in the future. DA can rear it's head at any time or place, with certain dogs or all dogs, at any age, and sometimes not at all. Either way it's always good to be prepared for the possibility and imperative that you ALWAYS supervise any interaction with other dogs. Get a break stick, learn how to use it, and take it with you to any and all visits or where other dogs may be, even family (yours or your pups).

Good luck and keep us posted! All in all it sounds like you got some good news!
