My puppy wants every stranger to stroke him

    So whenever i have taken oscar for a walk and he sees a person he gets very happy and wants them to stroke him.

    We were walking today and we saw this lady on the other side of the road if he had not been on a leash he would have run over tail wagging begging her to stroke him.

    He is sooo friendly i cant understand for the life of me why we have banned these dogs in the UK

    im thinking of changing his name to Judas as everytime someone new meets him he forgets who his owner is .....

    Thats cute, and be glad he is that way. You DO NOT WANT a HUMAN AGGRESSIVE DOG.

    Pitbulls think that everyone is their long lost best friend. They love human affection.

    My dog is the exact same way, he flips on his back for them to scratch his belly. I don't understand the "threat" either! They are soooo lovable and just want affection

    It is not about the puppy stage. It is about the grown up phase that people get scared. It is because the dogs are a powerful, strong breed and everyone OVER estimates them.

    Sounds like you have a very vicious pit bull. :lol: Lily is SO happy to see everyone we have to go to obedience class to teach her to be CALM around people. I want her to pass her CGC, but she's too friendly. :lol: She'll still be friendly, but she'll be caaallllmmmm.

    I cannot say I want mine calm. LOL, which mine are just conformational dogs. I show them in ABKC. Mine know as soon as they walk in the door of the show, they are to be on their best behaviors. I never taught them that though. They just do it! Other than that.... I LOVE ZOOMIES, makes me laugh

    My dog always wants kids to pet her, of course she forgets she is not a 3 lb chi :lol:

    I love zoomies too, but not when she's greeting people. She should listen when I ask her to sit and wait to be pet. We're working towards her CGC and TDI, and that is MUST. Also, it'll be nice when the dozens of kids in my neighborhood will be able to pet her without being knocked over (nothing like spreading good things about the breed than having parents see their kids fawning over a stable and well-trained dog).

    I already have started on sit and then he can be petted and i make sure that any kids who live on my block the same ones who i used to let play with rocky know the rules that they have to say hi to me first and then after Oscar sits they can pet him as they used to run up screaming ROCKY ROCKY with my GSD so i stopped letting them play with him as they didnt follow my training rules but they are being good with Oscar.

    my pups are like that too, they love everyone and wants to kiss everyone they see. :aww:

    That is typical APBT personality though it sounds as though you definitely need to make a stronger bond with your pup through training.

    You may just want to get used to that. :D

    I have to say, Veronica is almost 4 now and she is still the same way.

    I was somewhat gratified when we were practicing for the CGC and she whinned and appeared nervous during the first supervised separation. I know it's evil of me but I was actually happy that she got upset because I left her with the new trainer and walked out of the room. I was like, "Yes! I do matter"! :o

    If I take him to a dog park he'll often ignore the dogs and run over to kids or women to get pet.

    Mine are the same way, they think everyone loves them, and that they are 3 lb. lap dogs. :rolleyes:

    Mine are the same way, especially Rosie, she is such an attention hog. At agility classes she gets pretty much everyone to pet her. She even offers to 'shake hands' hoping it will earn her a treat.
    The only dangerous thing about her is her tail.. Well, it can hurt when she walks on you too...

    Mine is like that towards a degree. When a stranger passes us, he will go to them and sniff them, however he will not be begged or whine to be petted. He is inherently curious, but he has been taught not to accept food from anyone and will come back to me when called or as I begin to walk away. I believe it is crucial to train your dog to walk off leash and to stay by your side. My friend's amstaff is like this too, but he takes it a step further he's had PP. He will greet any friendly stranger, but once his life or the life of his family is in danger, he'll disarm and neutralize the threat. He will also protect property. I'm hoping mine turns out as well as his. He starts his first day of PP training for real life situations next saturday.
