Aggressive older pit bull
(Delray Beach, FL)
Me and my girlfriend have been dating for over 3 years, prior to and during that time her neutered male pit is usually very calm but is overly protective of his owner as well as aggressive toward other people. So much so that a friend was lucky to get away with just a few stitches after putting her face too close to the pit. 18 months ago I got a male Rottweiler who is not neutered. The pit has always been aggressive toward the rotty even though they appear to play periodically in the yard. If there is food anywhere (even just my girlfriend and I eating) the pit becomes aggressive toward the rotty. He also 'corrals' the rotty on a regular basis. When the rotty attemps to stand his ground my girlfriend shouit no repeatedly while I believe they should just get it fully out of their system so we can all live in peace. Can anybody give me some helpful advise on how to correct this situation?
