Tagged: English bulldog and a pitbull
Jake is my three-year-old pitbull that we have had since a puppy. My husband was heartbroken when we lost our English bulldog about 5 years ago. We had the chance to get another English Bulldog so we did. Jake is a neutered male who is the pit and blue is the English Bulldog who is not neutered. If my kids squeal make loud noises Jake attacks blue. Blue can walk by Jake and Jake attacks blue. Blue is a very laid-back calm dog and does not even fight back when Jake attacks. I need help so I can keep both of these dogs. I tried a shock collar on Jake. When Jake attacks we shocked him and it doesn’t work. I just want these two dogs to get along.
Hi daabs1313 – we are just going to move your message to the support discussion group as the Trainer / Behaviorist Promotion group is set up for trainers or behaviorists to promote themselves. Sorry if the title of that group is not clear! 🙂
HI – Sorry to hear about your issues – pretty stressful. Sadly shock collars can cause more problems especially for anxious, fearful or aggressive dogs. 🙁 .
Some pits are quite anxious (and therefor aggressive) around other dogs. Sounds like Jake may have some anxiety and be sound reactive (often a common combination).
Are you able to tell when Jake starts to get worried (like does he get start to get stiff or stare) is there a distance where he is ok and where he is not? Has Jake done any damage? Are you keeping them separated right now?
How long have you had Blue for?
Have you consulted a trainer or a behaviorist yet?AuthorPostsViewing 3 posts - 1 through 3 (of 3 total)
