Lack of enough exercise can certainly play a role. I know it’s no consolation but I get it. I work long hours too and have a nasty nasty neighbor who likes to complain every time my dogs move and tell me I’m a horrible person for ruining his “peace and quiet”. I would recommend spending some time with a trained behaviorist who may be able to help you. Even just a visit or two may be enough to give you the tools you need to get your boy under control. It is HARD! My dogs are pretty much all I have so I really do know how you feel. But at the end of the day they are dogs and need to be treated as such. I know it doesn’t seem like it right now but I promise you that everyone will be happier, your pup included, with some structure and discipline and a solid pack structure. Try to give him as much exercise as you can. Walk him til he’s tired. A tired dog is a well behaved, happy dog especially when they are young. It takes a lot of time, effort, patience, persistence and even frustration but maybe with some help from a trained behaviorist you can teach him to become the well behaved dog you want him to be. Please don’t hesitate to reach out for help or support.

Thank you soo much. I am definitely looking into a trained behaviorist. I spoken to one. Fees were like $895 for 6 months training. I think it was 12 sessions they do come into the home as well as on campus training. I thought that was pretty good. I just need to save up that kind of cash since they do not take payments. Oh by the way here is a pic of my Blu’

He is only 2 months but pretty strong. Again I do really appreciate you taking out the time to give me guidance on my new addition to my never had a pet family. LOL

If you guys have a local PetSmart, check them out - they usually offer training/behavior classes and may be cheaper than a specific trainer. You can also get books/magazines or online articles to help with training. That is how I taught my dog to leash walk without pulling (as much lol).
I totally agree on the exercise part. Pitbulls are a "working class" dog. They like to work for their rewards and are very quick to learn. But they also can be very destructive when they aren't worn out. Taking the dog on walks or letting them run out some energy daily will help. Also when your dog bites, making an OW! noise or something to that effect helps the dog know he has hurt you, just like a litter mate would do if they were playing to hard. Good luck!

Usually when you say no because your bigger he could just be scared and not so with your children, if kids are big enough and not getting teeth in them through jeans, get them to stand like a tree and ignore the pup until he stops, it's a game of look at me. Also leaving the room if your consistent in conjuction with a yelp or ahh will make him realise hey instead of looking at me I lose what I wanted in the first place, you only need to leave for 30 seconds to get the message across, 30s in dog years is much more haha, I new someone leaving the dog 1 hour outside at a time but that's too long and probably counter productive.

It's also the movement of legs they chase, I have a fully ripped up shirt too from the beginning, just be thankful your not in shorts and he's going for socks and grabbing shorts and the skin, jeans are the best to be able to ignore him in, insistence is the key, it's time consuming and feels like it's interrupting your life but it's well worth it, as the dog could pick up bad behaviors that last 15 years.
