my 8 MO old pit bullies my lab

(Houston tx)

I have had Boogie for two months. We realized when we first got him he had so much Energy so we got him plenty of toys and played with him several times a day. It never seemed to be enough. When we came out he still jumped on us over and over even when we walked away and ignored him. We praised him when he actually calm down. We eventually thought maybe he needs a play pal. We introduced him to a female yr old lab who is very sweet and has a lot of patience. He immediately began jumping on her and she ignored him. We thought okay this is good, no fighting. Little by little he always tries to test her limits he lunges at her playfully, but begins grabbing her by the neck and tugging at her. She either submits to him or finally gets fed and bites. He stops, but before you know it he is at it again. Lately I thought well she will teach him to calm down and when he gets too rough I intervene putting him in a kennel. It was not until I noticed a few gashes oh her neck and back that I realized she is probably miserable. Do I give him up, he isn't getting the picture.

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.
