Training a Pit Bull?

Training a Pit Bull - gray and white PitI adopted a Pit Bull about 10 months ago and she is two. Since I brought her home I have had to work on basic things - potty training, sit, leave it, and drop it. Introducing her to others has gotten better, but isn't perfect. She had attacked my smaller dog over food back in October. Since then I have been working on letting her know she is not the dominant dog out of the two, and I think they are doing better. But I still have difficulty every day walking her because she won't stop pulling. I've tried to get training, but every place has refused me because my dog is a Pit Bull. Can anyone give me advice? Another main concern is she doesn't do well with kids, anyone under the age of about 12 she has a problem with. And I have 2, 4 year old nephews who are waiting so patiently to say hi to her.

Regarding the pulling during walking: When he pulls, immediately stop and stand completely still until the leash relaxes, either by your dog taking a step back or turning around to give you focus. When the leash is nicely relaxed, proceed on your walk. Repeat this as necessary. If you find this technique too slow you can try the reverse direction method. (

Do not let your nephews come over until the dog is trained!
