I'm not looking for anyone whos gonna say "my dogs will end up dead" cause I KNOW they wouldn't. I'm here to master the skills found in pitbull owners / PBF users.
Thats all i'm here for! I would be the first to admit i'm nothing more than the average dog owner but getting smarter than them day by day! No one has all the answers but with a forum and helping people we can sure get close..
I know personaly that most dog owners don't have a clue on how to raise a dog.. You can't bash someone whos trying to learn.
Anything helpfull may be added.
*Every* reputable pit bull group recommends seperating the dogs when you are not there to monitor their interactions. They all recommend this for a reason - because it happens, and dogs are hurt or killed. No one here is bashing you, but you need to hear the reality of the situation and have the tools to manage your dogs safely so they can thrive and be safe and happy. This is important, or we wouldn't keep bringing it up.
Separate Dogs before Leaving the House
"This is one of the hardest things for new multi-pit owners to accept: Our dogs can be the best of friends BUT they may still find something, someday, that will cause an argument. When you're home, a small spat can often be stopped fast with a loud shout. But if you're not home, this same argument can escalate, drag on and cause injury. Avoid this terrible possibility by getting your dogs used to being separated during 'down time' in a crate or on a tie-down, first while you're home and then while you're away. You can rotate dogs so one is out while the other is contained. Or, let one dog sleep in your closed bedroom for the day while the other gets the sofa. Dogs are creatures of habit, so once you let them get used to this routine they’ll accept it as perfectly normal. Remember to exercise the dogs before you confine them so they can rest and enjoy a chew toy while you're away. By following this standard protocol employed by owners of many dog breeds including and especially the terrier breeds, you can leave the house knowing that you’ve done everything possible to ensure the well being of your pets."

"No matter how long you’ve lived with them and no matter how well you’ve socialized them, pit bulls should never be trusted not to fight with each other. Regardless of whether your dogs have ever shown aggression toward each other, if you have a multi-pit bull family, you must take action to prevent fights and maintain the safety of your dogs."

"The information on this page is to assist owners in managing dogs who do not get along. Perhaps you acquired same-sex pit bulls and now that they have matured, they no longer tolerate each other. Maybe you have a multi-dog household, and two or more of your dogs have recently been fighting. Or you recently added a pit bull to your home, and it just isn't working out with the other dogs. Whatever the reason, we hope that you will be able to safely manage your pets and maintain them in your home. A pet is a lifetime commitment; re-homing should be a last resort."

"Pit bulls can be addictive, but they aren’t the best candidates in a multi-dog household. As with many terriers and several other breeds of dogs, pit bull-type dogs are not always dog-friendly. They are people-dogs, not dog-dogs.
This isn’t to say that once you have one pit bull, you can’t have any more dogs. Many, many people do have multiple dogs, including two or more pit bulls! But you need to be aware that multi-dog households, especially a multi-dog household with one or more pit bulls, are an enormous amount of work and require an extraordinary amount of management. The amount of work required increases with each additional dog." (http://happypitbull.com/owners-manual/t ... ouseholds/
