  1. Help with my pit bull, may be aggressive

    i have a 14 month old american pit bull. she is great and listens well enough. i have never had any aggression problems with her before, but she recently went after another pit at the dog park. i want to make sure this doesn't happen again. does anyone know any good trainers in orange county that specialize in bully breeds? if so please email me at werenotthefirst@aol.com

    thank you

  2. Your dog is dog aggressive, which is a normal trait with this breed. You cannot train out DA, you can manage it. Also, no more dog parks.

    Dog aggression is a genetic trait in the breed. You can't love, train, or socialize it out. Sounds like her DA has turned on. "pit bulls" and dog parks are a BIG no-no because of their tendency to be dog aggressive.
    Dog aggression DOES NOT equate to human aggression. So if you're worried about this meaning she's going to start becoming aggro with people, don't be! They're two very different traits that come from two very different places.
    All you need to do is learn how to manager her aggression, and NO MORE DOG PARKS!

    Welcome, Niki (and if you're in Orange County, Cali, we're neighbors)!

    As stated above, aggression to other animals/dogs is a normal trait for the APBT, and please do not take her to dog parks.

    I know it is hard - we visited Huntington Beach's dog beach last weekend (minus our dogs), and it looks like to so much fun for the dogs.

    But we know that it's no place for our dogs, so we just enjoy watching other people's dogs frolicking about :)

    It is a normal trait for this breed, so first of all, don't freak out. Just accept that this breed has tendencies to be dog aggressive toward other dogs. Which means that you will have to say good bye to the dog parks. It's just a disaster waiting to happen with a bully breed, and your dog will be blamed for the fight regardless of who started it.

    Take a deep breath and relax, you don't have a problem dog, you just have to learn all the ways to manage dog aggression with him, and you've been directed to some great tips. :)

    Thank you!!:)

  9. What Orange County are you in?

  10. We own two Bulls, male/female, and we've seen first hand the aggression trait is just something we deal. NEVER let 'em run loose in public, my male is very friendly-much like Cesar Chavez's pit, Daddy. Never had a problem. My female, while existing very easily with our male, wants to rip every dog we see in the neighborhood during our walks. It's a breed thing but not prevalent in every dog.
