Grisell asks...This question is about:
I’ve had my dog since she was 2 months old and until she was about 1 I would walk with her and i would take off her leash and let her walk around on her own and n o matter how many times I’ve tried getting her around other dogs, she’s always be scarred and scream. After her 1st birthday she started getting more aggressive and instead of being scared of other dogs, she’d bark and lunge at them. I can’t let her off her leash anymore without her trying to run away and I could call her and order her to sit down but she would not listen and run every time I’d get close to her.

Alyson asks...This question is about:
I have 3 pitbull dogs - two 2.5 year old littermates (1 boy = Titan and 1 girl = Ariel) and one 13 year old girl = Princess. Princess has diabtetes and is blind. rnrnWe have an issue where Titan sometimes feels the need to guard or protect (not exactly sure what he’s actually doing) and he attacks Princess. This has happened 4 times:rn1. At my parents house when there was a squeaker toy and they both wanted it.rn2 in our fenced in backyard when they found a bunny nest and they wanted the bunnies. rn3. Inside the house when the front door was open to the storm door and Titan could see someone coming to the door. He attacked and Princess was caught off guard and scared.rn4. In our fenced in backyard when a neighbor was walking toward the fence. I went to heard princess inside to avoid the fight and Titan attacked princess as I was trying to get her inside.rn5. A seperate issue: He also attacked his other litter mate (my sister’s boy dog) over Ariel at our house. None of them were fixed at the time.rnrnAll of the above issues have happened when he was NOT neutered and he has recently been neutered. As soon as the attacks happen, he knows he’s in trouble and once we break them up and separate them, he calms down and goes straight to his kennel to chill out where we leave him for a little bit. After he has calmed down, he wants to be right next to princess for the rest of the day/night and even sleeps right next to her.rnrnIn a normal day, he will let Princess eat first, drink first and get treats first. If he is getting water and princess comes over to get a drink, he moves out of the way for her.rnrnDuring the day while we are away, princess roams the house and Titan and Ariel are in their kennels until we come home.rnrnBoth princess and Titan are protective over toys, so we are unable to allow them to play with toys in the same room as each other. rnrnAriel is very easy going and gets along with both dogs very well, but when Titan attacks, she also jumps in. I can’t tell if she is playing or if she is helping attack.rnrnTitan loves to play with princess, but he is more clumsy and knocks princess over so we don’t allow it to happen too often. Princess prefers to play with Ariel as she is more easy going, so when they play we try to remove Titan and distract him or take him on a walk so he doesn’t see them playing. rnrnTitan also whines at dogs and people outside and even on TV. He doesn’t seem like he wants to attack them but more so play with them. He likes to run back and forth with the dogs in the yard next to ours and loves watching kids play around our yard. He does jump up on us when we get home and whines when he’s let out of his kennel. He has a lot of energy and we try to burn it off by taking him on walks and playing ball with him in the backyard. He is good sometimes at giving the ball back and sometimes he’s not. Eventually, we always get it back but it can be some struggle. rnrnHe doesn’t really bark and sometimes gets scared when princess barks at noises she hears outside.rnrnSo, I feel like we have multiple problems and Princess isn’t the best trained dog either as she has gotten more snippy with her age and her blindness when meeting brand new people. But, we are trying to start a family and I want to make sure all dogs are on their best behavior when we bring a baby into the mix. I also don’t want them thinking they can take the baby’s toys if they hear a squeak. A squeaking toy is a trigger for both Titan and Princess. rnrnCan you please help??
