Hello I need some advise ?

    My pit name is duke he will be 1 year old the 30th of this month, I just had a baby boy he's a month old... It seems like since my son was born duke has forgotten the house rules. I keep on finding him on too of my bed; he has never been allowed to lay on my bed, I need to make him understand that's not okay... Any advise ?

    Easiest way - don't allow him in your room (it's what we do)

    Second way - teach him that he isn't allowed on the bed. If you're "finding" him on your bed, how did he get there? Was he unsupervised? Every time he gets on the bed take him off and show him the proper place to be. The easiest way to teach him you don't want him on the bed is to catch him trying to get on and redirect to a proper spot. Once he's up there all you can do is tell him to move.

    Well he was outside and I out him in while I was nursing my son he walked straight to my room.. His bed is right next to mine so I thought he would go lay down.. I told him to get off and "go to bed" which is something he understands.. And he wouldn't. I literally had to push him off my bed

    I feel like he already feels left out since my newborn son is here all my attention is to my son. I have no time for duke... And I don't want him to resent baby. I guess I'll just keep my door closed.

    You have no time for him? Well yeah he is probably just trying to get attention...he's jealous I'm sure..maybe try to give him a little time...even 30 mins when baby is sleeping? He may even become destrutive if he is getting no exercise and attention

    I know I feel bad I'm a first time mom I work over night so when baby sleeps during the day I'm out with him.. But I will for sure try to give him more attention. Our world use to revolve around him, so I know for sure he's just acting up

    I know its hard with a newborn and an odd hour work schedule. .do you have a hubby or bf who can help give him more attention? Your dog is very young still and is probably a bit confused and jealous..he doesn't understand you have a new baby and are tired...all he thinks is he used to have a bunch of attention and suddenly now he don't.. maybe even some short walks with baby and hubby in the stroller?

    Yea I'm married. My husband works7am until 9 I go in at 10 and it's getting cold so walking with baby isn't an option.. I've tried taking duke to the park plenty of times but he don't know how to act he'll jump on ppl and hump every thing alive its embarrassing. & the worst part is he knows better!

    Or, now is the time ti start teaching him tricks!!! Teach him some clicker training stuff! Keep his mind active and maybe get hubby to do some flirt pole work with him. :)

    This is kikopup! She teaches her dogs/all dogs by clicker training! Pretty easy to do when you get the hang of it!
    You can watch all her video on youtube.
    Here is a small video to get a idea.

    Dogs hump. But because of his breed he does not need strange doggie friends. No parks.

    No. Because he's a pit bull, he doesn't need dog friends. You and your family are sufficient for him. This breed is one that had the tendency to be dog aggressive despite the best training and socialization. So... He doesn't need doggie friends and if your purpose for taking him to parks is to meet and play with other dogs, don't take him to parks.
