Samson is a pit mix and very dog aggressive generally. I can list on one hand the dogs I let him play with and even then, never unsupervised. He does play very rough (as do many of the pits I have worked with at the shelter). All of that aside, they are wonderful, sweet, loyal dogs and very quick to pick up new things. He has been very easy to train. Good luck!

You have to do what works for you and your dog. The only thing I would say is that some dogs are much more defensive when they are on a leash, especially when there are a bunch of other dogs that are not leashed. Something you might want to consider...

Food & Nutrition > Feeding wet dog food with dry dog food, anyone?

I have always added some canned food to Samson's kibble. He eats Fromms mixed with Wellness Core canned or Fromms canned food. He is a bit picky and seems to like the canned food added. Plus, you can give a variety of flavors while sticking with the same kibble. It's been a challenge to find kibble that he likes and that agrees with him smile

I grew up with Labs and while they are very energetic, they also generally have a great temperament for children. I would say the same about Goldens. Beagles can be a good choice as well.

After eating BB for approximately 4 months, Samson got very gassy and had very runny poop, out of the blue. After 2 trips to the vet and several tests, we switched his food and almost immediately, he was better. He is currently eating Fromm and doing very well.

Behavior & Training > For the Fear of Dogs...? How do you handle people afraid of your dog?

Samson is a big dog (80lbs and then some) and part pit bull so I get a strong reaction from people on a regular basis. Usually people cross the street but I have had my share of comments as well. Usually I tell them "yes, you should be careful...he is dangerous and might lick you to death." That generally gets a wary smile. What can you do?

If I am not mistaken, the OP has 2 hounds? You must be really dog phobic to be afraid of hounds, especially since most of them have their noses glued to the ground.

American Pit Bull Terrier > When someone asks what kind of dog you have

Samson is a lab/pit mix and a rescue dog. I usually say "lab/pit mix." People that are ignorant will stay ignorant. He is a big boy (80 lbs) so people sometimes cross the street when we are walking. i have had many people say to me "I guess its all how they are treated."

Once he gets to know you, he is most likely to lick you to death. Sweet boy and a great dog. dog walk

American Pit Bull Terrier > Bully Toys...Woof

The only toys that I have found that are truly bully proof are the hard rubber Kong toys. Samson is such a chewer that even those toys that they describe as 'durable' really aren't for him.
