Dealing With a Jealous Dog

January 26, 2010

Jealous DogI have two dogs, one full Pit and one half Staff half Pit. They are so jealous of each other, but are treated exactly the same. They recently started fighting and now are intent on drawing blood. I am thinking of neutering them both to try and lessen the aggression, but need advice on how to deal with their jealousy.

Neuter them immediately! What you're seeing isn't jealousy, it's hormone driven aggression. You didn't say how old they are, or how long you've had each of them, but you're not going to calm them down until they're neutered.

Pit bulls are by nature a very aggressive and territorial breed and especially when both are male. You can have them neutered but that is no guarantee it will solve the problem because it appears their personalities are already set in stone. Have them neutered (that should be done anyway) but don't count on any changes in behavior and be prepared to have to give up one or both of them and especially if they're going to be around any other dogs or children for that matter.

I have a 5 year old lab ridgeback mix named Bubba and a 4 year old standard schnauzer named Harley. I found both of them, they are great companions for me and I love them dearly.
