    Hi i have a 2yr daughter and a 7week old female rednose pitbull puppy how would i socialise the two as to be at ease that she will be safe with the rednose as they grow up together.Please advise.thanks

    There is no socializing needed, just let them grow up together, the dog will naturally develop a love for her.

    Rednose means nothing, it is just a color, so you just have a "pitbull". They should be fine :)

    you must supervise them together... they are both babies.. and either one may play too rough for the other...

    ^^^ Yes, please read up on proper child and dog supervision and interactions. Following a few simple rules will save you untold headaches and ensure a rewarding experience for everyone.

    Rule #1 - NEVER LEAVE THEM ALONE TOGETHER. I can't stress this one enough having gone through raising a puppy around two very small kids. So far so good.

    with an apbt i dnt think it will nip her like most puppies do of other breeds as my gsd when he was a puppy used to nip alot and we had to train that out of him with the high yelping noise and no play time

    My Apbt has never tried to nip me at all the worst thing would be when the puppy gets older as it will age faster then your daughter so when she is 4 it will be 2 but in dog years thats like being a teenager

    Depending on the dog they absolutely will nip. Every dog is different which is one reason why constant supervision is mandatory. The high pitch yelp will work on APBT's as well.
