Our 3 month old pit bull growls menacingly whenever we leave him tied to a post, or whenever we make him do something he doesn't want to do. I'm wary of getting close to him whenever he does that. How can I make him stop this very undesirable behavior?

First of all don't tie your pit bull against the pole and treat him nicely or like more carefully and let him do what he wants - lay low for a couple of weeks or a month and then do what you usually did

actually your pit bull is displaying dominance over you. he is the alpha. if he doesn't like what you are doing he may growl or even bite you.

This is a very dangerous situation. The dog has what we call in the vet buisness as a mental imbalance. If your pit bull is doing this at 3months already the dog needs temperment tested and blood work done. Please be careful with this pitt.

What are you making him do that he objects to? First, I agree with other responders - to stop tying him to a pole. Pits hate that. They are good listeners and do well with consistent oral commands and treats for proper behavior.Pits just want love. Be careful with him or you will ruin him and potentially become a bad dog owner and create a problem dog.

dont tie him up pitbulls are very territorial and if you dont maintain the upper hand he will claim the pole area as his and good luck getting it to do anything you want it to when it decides not to let you so just start taking it out to exercise and if it is too much for you to handle find a home that can keep up with it because if i see it tied to a pole im cutting it off

To say your pit bull has an mental imbalance is not proveable, first, does this dog have a good pedigree or do you have something thats a little bit (a little of this and a little of that, a mix of ?) if hes a mix, you should be careful and consult the owner as to what the pup is, secondly, if your budget allows it have him looked over a few times by a good dog trainer and get their thoughts on the pup. A.P.BT. are very easy to work with if it is indeed an a.p.b.t., if this persist, I dont want to be the bearer of bad news, but I would have the dog put down, this is not safe for you or anyone else, regardless of what type of dog it is, God Bless...
