Pit bull acting out
(Dresden Tn, USA)
A friend of mine contacted me about her pooch Sasha, shes a red nose/blue blood line. Been with the same family her whole life.
She has lately taken to biting at the son who is 9, and just generally being rough with him. The family is trying to move and stress levels are very high. Any suggestions? Thanks, AmyGale's Reply:
Any time a dog starts snapping at a family member, it's a serious situation and one that deserves immediate attention.
If they have no clue why this is happening, my best suggestion is that they get professional help from a trainer or a behaviorist who can observe the family and the dog together and get the background information that's necessary to assess the situation properly.
In the interest of thoroughness, it would be prudent to have their dog checked by a vet to be sure she isn't ill or in pain.
Good luck to your friends. I hope they are able to find the help they need to resolve this situation.
