Small dog agressive!! Need Help bad.

I have a 2yr old pitbull, who 90% of the time is the most docile, sweet creature known to man. He is fixed, has been through basic obeidience, and is using the E-collar. At home he has no issues with his brother, smaller sister, and house cat, but when we are at the parks he becomes a big bully, especially with small dogs. This is unacceptable behavior and I need help breaking it. I am willing to do anything to get this to stop, please help!!!!

I would switch from correction based methods to positive ones...encouraging good behavior instead of correcting "bad".

Most pit bull are not suitable for dog parks...you might want to set up a play date with other bully breeds that play rough with him.

This is great advice!!!! My dogs play very rough so when we brought our pit into the house our concern was "is he not going to like the rough play" or "will he be too rough" the second one was the answer! He is too rough sometimes and bites hard (I have a deep tear in my earlobe to prove it!). I have taken this positive reinforcement training into consideration and it works. Luckily my dogs play very rough so he is ok, but none of them do good at dog parks because they scare the other dogs too much. If you have a friend whose dog plays like yours I would try them out together alone and see if it works. Is he a bully to the large dogs? If not do they not have a large breed dog park separate from small ones? They have them where I live.

Well your dog is made for one purpose to kill. You just have to take that into consideration and never let him off leash in public or like the others suggested let him play with only similar tougher breeds.

I don't like that saying LOL Every big bully breed dog was "built and created" to take down big game. Lets just say this breed has a high drive and focus

LMAO...heres a newsflash for you . All dogs of all breeds kill.. they are a predator.

There are GOBS of pits with "cold tempraments" that ar not dog aggressive... they are bred that way...so if you mean "bred to fight" your not correct.

My niece's BC will chase down a chicken, calf, horse in a heart beat and trust me the chicken always loses. But that is what she was bred to do herd things. I agree about the play date when i had my dobe (he past 2007) i would set up play dates with bully moms and dads and the dobe club. To be honest i have to watch my bloodhound around small dogs cause she plays rough and out weighs them by a wee bit lol.
