    I have a teething one month pitbull that keeps nipping and biting my ankles which is painful. I managed to somewhat get him to lick my hands now instead of biting it gradually, but he's not learning to not bite my ankle. I use the "NO!" approach, but he never lets go, so instead I use two shoes...

He's almost a year old and now he's non stop biting and nipping at the other 2 which they tolerate until they get...

    My bully breed is about a year and a half now. It seems he goes through these stages were he acts out in these bratty behaviors and for a few weeks, then the next few weeks he seems to be able to settle more in the house and act appropriately. I give him plenty of physical and mental excersise...

    We rescued a pitbull terrier from a lady who got him from animal control. Were not 100% sure of his age one vet said 1 another said 3 years old. We don't know much about his history as he was found running around outside and wasn't claimed by anyone at animal control. Hes an amazing dog inside...

    About a week ago I adopted "Drama" from an anti cruelty society, he's almost 7 months. He was found as a stray and was very frightened and standoffish when he first arrived at the shelter but he's a total sweetheart so they named him Drama. Anyways, the first couple days at home were great! He...

    I'm hoping this isn't as bad as my brain is telling me it could be... because my heart really loves this dog. But, I rescued my now 14ish month old pit about 3 weeks ago from animal control. She's done okay in class and soaks up information like a sponge. But she is like a crazy freak when it...

    My little man Bruce is about 4 months old and he has two terrible acts I cannot seem to break him of and don't quite know how to begin to do so. First of all he is a nipper, when he does I tap him on the nose and tell him no but it doesn't seem to do anything he just keeps biting. Also he is a...

    Rescue is abt 2 years old. He starts nipping my hands, when I stop him he comes at me harder! When I stand up and tell him to sit - he jumps up and tries to bite me. I have him on a leash tethered to my waist. I put him in the crate for time out! He gets very upset and barks, whines, bangs...

    Hes a year old and has nipped at my father in law at his ankle and at my sons arm. Both times, they were just walking by him. What kind of sign is this for the future? If he keeps this up, I'm going to have to get rid of him. Hes normally very loving and listens well but I don't want to have...

    Blue is now 7 months old and the nipping won't stop!! I figured he would stop by now. It was really bad when we first got him(6 weeks old) and then we got it under control around 3-4 months old, but not for long cause he was right back at it in a couple weeks! We've tried everything, he is just...

    So Lex is a little over a year now... He's got the sit, stay, paw routine down & potty training is complete. Lately he's been showing a little angst when playing fetch when I have the ball in hand & he's sitting waiting. He'll stare up at me for about 10 seconds & nip at my face. Of course I...

    I have two red-nosed pitbull puppies, aproximately 10 weeks old. I need some good useful information on how to train them to obey and most importantly not to "nip" at the kids out of anger. I am not a fan of physical correction and I want the best for my puppies. Any decent ideas or general...

I know that pitbulls will play rough with each other and I dont think the act in itself is really a problem for me, it is just that when I tell them to stop my female does and my...
