Mixed pit rescued dog a out 2 years old now about 6

My dog is a mixed pit. Very sweet and great with people and kids of all ages. Tends to be protective of my grandchildren. Never growls just takes a stand in front of them if someone is playing a little rough. The problem is she is fine walking on a leash, likes certain male dogs. There is a little male mutt she actually wants to go to there front door if the little male is not outside. They play nice. She goes "crazy" if a female dog is anywhere near. No barking immediate stiffens up tail straight up. Does not responds to commands. We literally have to take her to the ground from the scruff of her neck and hold her down. Telling the approaching person walking the other dog to just go quickly. My fear is that many dog owners in my neighborhood ignore the leash laws. Many times dogs of all kinds have charged out of no where and startled her. She likes the dogs on the other side of the fence next door to me. Adult male lab and a female puppy. All puppies she seems fine with. I know if I lost control of her leash she would attach . Her history reported to me from the rescue one incident at the rescue a dog came to close to her and her puppies in their opinion that provoked her to attack the other dog. Once adopted and with us for about a year we happened to open our front door when company were leaving and to my surprise another mixed pit being fostered by a neighbor got out and ran right in my house. My dog came immediately over . It was a terrible fight with injuries that went out the front door down the steps and into the front yard. My fear is she will turn on for instance the little male dog she likes down the street. Suggestions to curb this unprovoked behavior? She now ignores squirrels when I firmly tell her to leave it this took a long time. She gets plenty of exercise., and is never alone. My husband is home all day retire. Do you think an ebcollarbwould help when out for her daily 1 mile walk?

Nothing In Life Is Free
by: Adam G. Katz

Employ the "Nothing In Life Is Free" approach, so that your dog starts to view you as the "pack leader." If your dog doesn't see you as the leader, then your corrections will be meaningless. So, if you're doing subtle things (inadvertently) to undermine your leadership role around the house-- it will be counter-productive.
