Ok, first off 9 months is the most common age for dogs to be surrendered to a shelter, , it's a difficult time, just keep working and training and exercising the crap out of them. Personally I would get a trainer involved or get them in classes. It sounds to me like you are dealing with littermate syndrome, exactly why getting two pups is not really recommended, they require a lot of time apart and training apart or they will bond like crazy and go nuts when apart. Do they spend any time apart now? Start gating or crating them and working one on one. Put the other dog out of sight with a chew or kong. They will scream and cry and carry on, you have to work through it or it will only get worse as time goes on. They have to be trained on the commands and behaviors you want and then you can go about training them together.

I took two months of classes focused around correction using prong/choke collars and I really don't recommend it. I can do everything with a heavy duty flat collar that I can do with a prong collar it just takes a little bit more guidance.

As of right now they havent spent ANY time apart. I found them together and didnt want to separate them so its always just been them and me. I do plan on putting them in obedience classes just so i can socialize them if nothing else.

Glad that worked for you but theres plenty of dogs a buckle collar wont work on.... ive been training dogs for over a decade and have been dealing with only bulldogs for 6 years.

^this has worked oh so well with my boxer, ever since he was a pup this is the method i used to "train him" i never found treats to work for me not even with a clicker, so when ever i did use a clicker he would get a nice pet and a warm good boy

Bob is extremely collar reactive with a flat collar. I agree some dogs do not need a prong but some do. You can easily ruin a dog with a prong if not used properly

Like ives said from the get "training is an individual task". I suggested a prong bcuz a dog will correct itself when pulling on a prong. Ive also seen one not fitted properly and it did nothing. The dog was still pulling. Its all about the dog, trainer, consistency, and proper use of any and all tools and techniques.

One thing that might help with "the rowdiness" when you are trying to train, is to burn off some of their energy with excercise first. Is there a place to take them swimming? Do the play fetch at all? Burn off some of the excess energy first, then use hotdogs as treats and a noose type leash to "snap" as a corrections when their attention wanders off you.
Another thing you might try is to train right before you feed them their regular meal. that waay they have to work to eat. Good luck. It can be done but you have to be consistent and patient and make a HUGE deal when they do what you want.

You know I have found that they are alot easier to handle when they are tired. Zeus loves to run with me. Serena kinda has a small deformity on her left leg so she cant really run as fast but she loves to chase her ball. Yesterday I had a pretty good training session. I took them to a secluded area and i used their treats to keep their attention on me. It worked really good, I know the biggest part of this is keeping myself consistent. I havent had a dog since i was little and of course then mom was the pack leader so this is all pretty new to me. But I want to do right by those dogs. Especially with them being pits. Thanks alot for your input.

I have a nice Herm Sprenger prong collar with rubber tips because Tex's skin is too sensitive and he will pull all day with it and will only react to snap and release. It works wonders but I've noticed once I started using the heavy duty stillwater collar he reacted just the same to the prong if i gave the lead a snap.

It is a very viable option if used correctly but there's so many other ways to train that are a lot easier on the dog.

Yeah I know and I agree 100%, just giving a personal experience with it. I do think that teaching him with a prong collar helped him become reactive to flat collars because before he would never react.

Just seemed like u were argumentative. Each dog along with child is different. I had to get my ass beat as a kid to get the point my siblings didnt. If I was a dog id need a prong they would've been fine on a buckle collar. In 10 years ive run through a bunch of techniques and tools somw worked so.e didn't. Its all in the dog. Just seemed u were 100% against prongs period.
