Ginger is 2 years old and she still tears up her pillow I buy her to sleep on.  She even shredded my siberian husky, Snowy, pillow.

Is she still considered a 'puppy' still?  My husky who is 9 months older, hole digs and runs occasionally, but never chewed and torn things up like Ginger likes to do.  Do pit bulls grow up a little slower?  She was the 'runt' of the litter.  My husband picked her because she had such a sweet nature, she plays with my 13 year old cat and 21 year old parrot.

How can I get my dog to stop jumping up on people?

Whenever anyone comes over, they know they will be bombarded by my dog. He gets super excited anytime anyone comes over and wants to jump up and get lots of love.  Most people don't like it and I don't know how to get him to stop.  I tell him down and he will but 2 seconds later he does it again.

 

Thanks :)

Hello, we just rescued a 4 month old Pit Bull Mix. He is a wonderful and smart puppy but when we are outside if he sees another dog his ears go up and his tail goes up and he stands erect and will start growling and sometimes lunges in their direction...how do I correct this now while he is young before it gets worse?

House training our 2 month old puppy.

Hey y'all! We are in the process of house training our 2 month old puppy, Calypso. When we first started she was doing great! Even started going to the door when she had to go out. We've only had her for about a week but she seems to be getting worse with the house training. People have told me to rub her nose in her pee and smack her butt, then throw her outside. I don't hit my kids, and I won't hit my dog. Any advice on how to get her to go to the door to go outside/let us know she wants to go outside? This is my first time house training a dog!
