9 year old pit seems aggressive while leash walking, new behavior!
Back to me after 2 yrs gone!
My spayed female pit seems aggressive toward all other off leash dogs in my area, She used to play and run but after I got her back after two years gone she's changed. More less tolerant and more grumpy with other dogs.
Great with humans but hackles up when another dog approaches.
Being a pit I don't need her biting or fighting most dogs in my area go off leash and approach her, She hackles up and gets rigid.
She was raised off leash and now has to be due to where we live.
I don't know how to handle this without risk of harm to her and other innocent dogs!
So You did not have her for two years? Who had her? Sounds like she got used to someone being mean or isolating her. You might need a professional.
My ex would not let me take her. He joined a not very nice motorcycle club and I got her back by chance just 10 days before he was charged with murder.
I'm not able to ask him why she's stressing but am looking in to professional help, thank you!

Pit Bull Terriers as Pets - Yes or No - and most importantly - WHY, especially if you answered yes?I personally am against having Pit Bulls as pets (especially for a family with children) for the very simple reason of “instinctive trait”. Pit Bulls were selected and groomed to be fighting dogs...

Who's the problem? The pit bull or the owner?Should it be illegal to ban all fighting dogs? It's in they're instinct to ravage and Mail anything smaller than them especially if it darts past their line of vision! Would you rather see behavioural therapy? Or training classes more available for both...
