  1. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi, my boyfriend and I rescued a beautiful estimated two year old Staffordshire Terrier about a month ago. He has been the sweetest, trusting, loving, and adventurous dog out there... until today. My partner and I have bought him many toys, which he has ripped to shreds in a matter of minutes...

    My American Staffordshire terrier has been itching to death for months now. Two vet visits, no resolution. Vet claims it's just allergies and wouldn't give her meds but just Benadryl. We'll, 3 weeks later, it's worse than ever. Now there is a rash on the back of her neck and her paws are getting...

    I need help. I have a pit who is 1 years old, crazy anxiety, on 400mg of trazadone a day. She just got a new impact dog crate, she’s chewing and scratching the inside. Her teeth are all silver. I’m afraid she’s going to break her teeth. I need ideas on what to line the inside of the crate walls...

    Hi, We adopted the sweetest one year old dog on Saturday. She was listed as a Lab Mix. Does she look like a Lab Pit Mix, Lab Coonhound Mix, or maybe all three? She weighs about 65 pounds, rarely barks, very chill loves to lay around, has been great with adults and children.

    His name is Max and I had him for years. I love him. I know he is a mix breed, thats for sure but he looks like a pit bull mix sometimes. The problem with that theory is that he is really short. He is lean and strong af, and loyal too. And again, I do know he is a mix breed but can anyone tell...

    Hello all, my apologies if this is the wrong place on the forum to put this. This is my first time using this. My family and I just took home a Pit Bull puppy around two weeks ago. She had recently turned 6 months April 1st. She's been great so far. She has some typical puppy problems like...

    So I work at a vet and we had this pit come in as a rescue. Wondering if you think it's full pit or is mixed with something else. If you do you think it's full pit, it would be awesome to know just what kind of pit it is. If you think it's mixed please let me know what breed you think it's mixed...

    I posted this same thread in a Pit Bull specific forum I frequent last night. I am curious on what responses I will get here... Please let me know your thoughts. I blanked out the names of the sites as I don't know the proper etiquette on that issue. Thank you. After I lost my first beloved...
  11. Introductions
    Hello! I just signed up for this forum for a specific reason: My husband and I are looking to get a dog. He really wants a pit bull but I want a dog that doesn't shed. (I have asthma, it's much easier for me to breathe if there's not hair everywhere!) I saw a pit bull & poodle mix online but...
  12. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi everyone, I googled and researched so much online and found out that you hardly ever meet an aggressive puppy and that most owners confuse their puppy's playfulness with aggressiveness. So I shot a video clip of how my 4 month old pit bull puppy behaves and most trainers are shocked and tell...

    Hello, I am moving into an apartment in July and have already signed the paperwork and paid the security deposit. On the paperwork, I filled out my dog's breed as Corgi Jack Russel Mix. Today I got an email saying that I need to provide a picture of her as well as vet records stating her...

    A relative of mine rescued this beautiful pit bull recently. Such a sweet girl. We purchased a new Snugpups (www.snugpups.net) coat for her as a welcome gift ... its perfect for her and she loves it. In fact, she loves it so much she likes to keep it on while in the house! She is a little...
  15. Dog Training and Behavior
    We've been playing with the idea of getting a second dog. We had one for a while, but she was very nervous and suffered from Separation/Isolation Anxiety. That spun out into getting in a fight with our resident dog (2 year old male Pit/Bull Terrier). He isn't a fan of the Humane Society any...

    I have a homemade flirt stick that Alfred enjoys a lot. Trouble is that he's gotten used to it. It's become too routine because he will play for 10 minutes or so and then start veering toward the gate, ready to go for a run. So I have to get his attention and rope him back into playing just...

    This is mostly preemptive. I have a 2 year old Pit mix that we've had for about a year now. He has loads of energy and when the weather isn't great (cold, raining, winter), he doesn't get the same amount of exercise he might on a nicer day. My wife wanted a Pit (mix) for a number of reasons...

    My best friend called me yesterday to tell me that he and his wife had to put down their seven year old pit bull, Cocoa, that they had adopted as puppy over six years ago. We, along with our two different dogs that we had each time, have visited them many times. Up until our first visit, I had...
