HuNdrd Proof is an unknown quantity at this point
Post Puppy playing, growling...

Hey guys, i have a 11 week old pitbull, Athena. Now i would like advice on how to control her growling n biteing. My friend has a 6 month old Shiba Inu, Ares. When i bring my pup over they play Ares is a small dog so its nice. But they non stop play n my pup will growl n sound like shes getting serious but i think its cuz Ares is bigger than her. But i just dont want it to escolate when she getss older. My nieghbor said he held his pups jaw shut whn he would try to bite him or growl. It seemed to work cuz ive yet to see him try to nibble on me or growl. But theres gotta be a better way n if anyone has advice i would appreciate it Thanks

It's more likely dominance than aggression but it could progress into DA as she gets older. I would say correct her if she plays too rough, try and teach her some manners but there's only so much you can do. It could just be establishing dominance over that dog which my pup was doing since day one to other pups. Just socialise her as much as possible and be prepared for dog aggression as she matures.

11 wks is still pup stage but the corrections must be given. have you tried to intervene when the rough housing starts? if you must put a physical barrier (yourself) and not only stand your ground but back her up as to claim space. you should instigate play and end it also, don't let her dictate anything.
firm command or physical presence to show her that you are there and you are the boss.

My dog had a knack to shoot down the stairs but i never follow him so he comes back and waits for me to to take the first 2 steps down the stairs then he follows me. don't give in to aww that's cute let them play, this is a sign of ignorance when it comes to dog behavior.

grabbing your dog to correct them is a NO NO. if your dog can't behave with the other dog have a leash handy and remove her from the spot.
