My 1 y/o Female Bull Terrier is very jealous of my husband and I. We can't even hug without her going crazy. She used to listen very well and lately she is getting bad. And just recently she has been very aggressive towards me? PLEASE HELP! what can I do?

    Up the dose of cuddling in front of her, it sounds like she is the boss of the house or thinks she is, you have to show her its not all her time its also you are your partners time to, give her fuss then, you and your partners fuss then involve her, when she plays up put her out of the room for 5 mins, with a telling off, keep repeating this, she will learn to stop, its easy to submit to them cos they are so lovely but the truth is the more she is left to get away with this behavior the more she will push, if you put a stop to it she will respect you both more, I know I sound cold hearted but I'm not.

My husband and I own two pit bulls named Hadez 1 year and Danaka 6 months. Hadez is very protective of kids and goes wild if he can't get to a kid that is crying. Danaka is still acting a lot like a pup but she loves my five kids. We have a rott and jack rusell too, and they all get along well. Well Hadez does try to make the rott mad but my rott is about 4 years old and he never gets mad it seems.

Hi, my english bull terrier has just had a litter of 6, sadly the runt died. Four of them are normal sized pups who are piling on the weight but one (the first born) is very small, he is ok healthwise but is just very much smaller than the rest, I was wondering if there is any chance that he is a miniature and if so how would I tell?

We just adopted a miniature schnauzer we named her cupcake she is about 11 months old and what a great dog! She gets along great with my golden retriever who's 10yrs , my terrier mix who I also adopted he is 14 yrs old and my two cats. She brings them back to life with her energy. My daughter absolutely loves her and cupcake doesn't leave her side. This breed of dog I compare to my golden retriever smaller breed but just as friendly and lovable. I am so happy we have her in our family now :]

I recently bought a westie for my son. The dog is male, about 12 weeks old. He is in good health, but his head seems small relative to his body. Does the head normally develop more slowly than the body, or is this something we should be concerned about?
Thank you very much.

I've given my bull terrier cabbage. I also read they like beef, but is it safe to give him raw beef? I'd be afraid it could be contaminated. What is the best way to give him wheat and beef? Thanks, TH

    To be honest, a good quality kibble/biscuit has got to be the best way to go. In the uk, most other owners, myself included, try and steer clear of ANY red meats. We feed our 3 year old boy on just turkey n rice kibble and he weighs just over 70lbs! He has no skin problems and is a very laid back bullie. Speak to your vet and get some advice from them

Ok so me and my boyfriend just recently adopted a four year old red nose pit, he is very friendly but not in the right shape a pit should be in, what is the proper diet and exercise to bulk him up a little and get him into shape?

    First of all what kind of shape is he in. Is he overweight or underweight. Was he a fighting dog a bait dog. What is his history. For overweight dogs you need to get it off him and start working him at least 3 times a day walks, runs, tug of war anything that will make him work. Also go to your local feed store and find some food that fits your wallet and that's going to be great for him. Taste of the wild is awesome food. Nurto is also good. If you have a costco in your state get their food. 40 pounds for $20. No fillers and has everything you want to give him. Or you can do the all raw diet. Either way you need to work him out in order for him to get in the shape you want him to be. Also try going to your vet and asking if there is anything that they would say to do. Google it also. I hope something that i had to say works. Oh and also get him a backpack and put empty water bottles in it then after a week start to add more weight. Walk him an hour a day 2 times a day once in the morning once at night. If you really want him to become a great healthy dog do that and you will have a wonderful dog. Happy bullying :)

Hi, I had gotten Quiki 3 weeks ago from my daughter and her boyfriend. He abused her for 6 months, until my daughter moved out and took her. I have her now, and she is just soo submissive. She is extremely thin, very picky on food. Though my daughters bf only fed her a cup a day, she really needs 3 cups. She was eating good, then stopped so I slowly changed her dog food, she was eating that then again stopped and I slowly changed it back to the same dogfood. She stopped and hasn't eaten in 2 days. Now I have an 11year old chow, my chow doesn't mind her and they get along. I walk her, take her to parks every day for 2 hours except wednesday
We walk for 2 hours, and I walk her at night for an hour before bed. She just drinks water. She refuses to eat. I really thought if she uses all her energy she would be starving but so far nothing. She don't chew bones, she chews napkins. She hides a lot, always pees in the house and looks at me if I am to beat her like the bf did. I don't get it. She hates my bird, my chow protects the bird, they had a quarrel which my dog won, she backed down. She is friendly to EVERYONE all dogs at the park. But her listening to me is getting worse. She doesn't come when I tell her, which is strange cause for 3weeks yesterday was the only day she refused to listen and now this morning she peed all over the rug. Can anyone help me?

    I have helped a few friends of mine with dog issues and I have learned (from The Dog Whisperer) that our energy really comes into play with troubled animals. Have you checked your energy while trying to get him to eat or to come? Ceaser Milan says one must always be patient and never show any negative emotion as dogs pick up on this. Sounds like she is getting enough exercise. I would highly recommend you watch Dog Whisperer or buy his books. He has totally changed how I train my dogs and it works so much better with problems that are hard to deal with. Bless your heart for looking after this girl.

I've raised American Pit Bull Terriers for more than 25 years...not as a breeder, but simply as a pet owner. Most of the dogs I've raised were either shelter rescued or fostered from families that could no longer care for them. I may be biased, but I sincerely believe the APBT to be easily within the top 3 of the absolute best dog companions that a person could care for. They are loyal, fun-loving, energetic, bold, courageous, and playful...although not for everyone. Because of their natural tendency towards dog aggression and their indomitable spirit, they should be raised by committed and skilled owners who are familiar with their history. I currently have two, a male named Kane and a female named Trinity. They are both rescues from the local shelter. Kane is approximately three years old and I've had him since he was around six months; Trinity is 18 months and I've had her about a year. Kane was found as a stray before being taken to the shelter, and Trinity was surrendered by a family that could no longer care for her. Although, there were some initial challenges, the life of my family has been greatly rewarded by the inclusion of these two great dogs. I would encourage anyone who is looking to own a member of this beautiful breed of dog to do their research, become familiar with their local laws regarding ownership of the APBT, and consider adopting from a rescue organization or animal shelter. And, by all means, please spay or neuter your pet. Currently, the American Pit Bull Terrier is probably the most exploited dog in the world. Because of their desire to please their owner, they are successfully being utilized for both legal and nefarious purposes, and their reputation precedes them. This is the #1 breed of dog that is euthanized in shelters. This breed does not need any more back yard breeders. There are a sufficient quantity of APBTs being kept in shelters to satisfy the most discriminatory owner. If you are the right owner for this breed, your rewards will be immeasurable with the proper training and care of an adopted dog.
