Hi,

I'm a first time pitbull owner , are pitbulls good with kids , do I have to know anything about the breed? Ice is 7 months old now and very stubborn and hyperactive is there a way I can calm him down

Well, before getting ANY dog, one should research the breed and know what potential behaviours and problems could be.

DO YOUR RESEARCH NOW.

Pitt bull terriers are excellent family dogs, IF TRAINED CORRECTLY. If you do not know how to correctly train the dog, get in a training clinic IMMEDIATELY.

Have you ever even owned a dog? If not, you need A LOT of knowledge. Do you know how to teach your kids to treat animals properly? Do you know how to teach your kids to avoid turning a situation into one where the dog will get aggressive? Do your kids understand that it's a DOG, a living being, and they cannot treat it like a jungle gym, or pull on it, or be mean to it?

If ANY of these answers are no, I suggest that you get yourself into every dog/owner training you can.
