Q. We are dog sitting a young intact female pit bull and she is very playful. When the other dogs don’t want to play and snap at her she attacks them. Do you have any advice?
Hi Cindy,
We’re watching a 1yr 4mo intact female pit bull.

Shes very playful with other dogs, but when other dogs don’t want to play and snap at her, she attacks them.

We purchased your aggressive dogs video, but we don’t see anything that pertains to this type of aggression.

I’m trying to keep this brief, so if you would like more information about it, I’m happy to provide.

Thank you again for all you do for the community!

A. This type of dog should not be allowed to interact with other dogs in this way. Just like some people are pushy and obnoxious, so are some dogs (I own a dog like this). My dog is perfectly fine around dogs in a controlled setting and shows no aggression but she becomes overly pushy and if the other dogs give her a fair warning she overreacts.

It's not fair to the other dogs to make them put up with this kind of harassment. My advice would be to not allow this dog to try to play with other dogs. Take structured walks and do some obedience training in a group setting. But I would not allow her to be off leash and have the opportunity to continue doing this. Since you said you are watching her, I am assuming she's not your dog. It's unfair to the other dogs to make them put up with this kind of behavior and it's also dangerous.

Establishing Pack Structure with the Family Pet
4 Hours
The goal of our pack structure training program is to produce a dog that is calm and submissive and a dog that follows the rules of the pack leader. This DVD teaches people how to become a pack leader that their dog respects and loves. Most people are not born pack leaders. In fact, far from it. The majority of dog owners (many who have owned dogs their entire life) simply do not know anything about the instincts that control our dogs or how strong these instincts are in the domestic dog. Oh people may have heard that they need to be a pack leader or they may have heard they need to be an ALPHA with their dog but they do not understand what this really means or how to accomplish it.

Dealing with Dominant and Aggressive Dogs
3 Hours, 30 Minutes
In my DVD, I provide 3 1/2 hours of information to help people solve their problems with dominant dogs and aggressive dogs. This information is based on 45 years of experience training dogs. For the last 30 years I have studied the art of protection training dogs. I was a police K9 handler for 10 years, and was chairman of the training committee for the WI police dog association for a number of those years. I have bred German Shepherds for police service work for 28 years. During this time I have bred over 350 litters of working dogs. I have dogs from my kennel working in law enforcement, Search and Rescue and competing in Schutzhund all over this country. No one I know in the United States can make these claims.

Dominant Dog Collar
Dominant Dog Collar
This collar is not intended to give a painful correction. It is intended to take the air away from a dominant aggressive dog. More dogs are put to sleep everyday for aggression problems than they are properly trained. Killing a dog must ALWAYS be the last resort. Learning how to use a dominant dog collar can and will often make the difference between having a dog put down or ending up as a pack leader and a dog the you can live with. Some dogs will often get over-stimulated by a prong collar resulting in a more hectic and aggressive dog. The Dominant Dog Collar is designed to be used on handler aggressive or dog aggressive dogs. Using a Dominant Dog collar correctly on the takes the drive and fight out of the dog. Leerburg's Dominant Dog Collars If you have a problem with dog aggression or a dominant dogs, we recommend that you get the Dealing with Dominant and Aggressive Dogs DVD.

For adult dogs, we recommend the Establishing Pack Structure with the Family Pet DVD. For puppies, we recommend the Living with Your Puppy - Establishing Pack Structure DVD. Due to government restrictions, countries such as Australia and a few in Europe do not allow the use of remote or electric collars. These dominant dog collars are a viable alternative.
