Default 911.. need desperate help with my dog..

o.k my wife is on the verge on getting rid of my dog..
and for those that dont already know or forgot i have a pure bred red nose pitbull. going on 7 months old and stands up on 2 back feet at 4 feet 5 in high and about 50 puonds

this is my first pitbull.. he is a lil out of hand.. he will take food from my son or my daughters hands while they are playing or just not paying attetion..
if someone leaves a plate of food unatended in and leaves the room for a minute and comes back the plate will be licked spotless and the dog no where to be found.
he takes all my kids toys instead of all the toys and rawhide we buy him and he chews them all up.. he chewed the laces on almost every pair of shoes in the house..
he will climp on the dining room table and knock down what ever he can get to play with and chew on... and when you confront him for doing something bad he will pee on the floor right in front of you and put his head down like he knows he did something wrong..
i mean i feed him 2 cups of food 3 times a day and its nothing but eukanuba since the day i got him.... so he is fed very good.. plus i give him treats..
he will sit and lay down or give me paw on request but thats about all....
he also chewed up one of the dining room chair leg'* on my wifes new cherry wood table set.. he even knocks food and other stuff down from the kitchen counter top to eat and chew on it......

please help as i really grown attached to him in the last 5 months and do not want to give him away at all.......

is this just a phase... or am i not training and teaching him well..
i do smack him on the nose and chain him up somewhere when he does one of the things mentioned above but he does not learn.. its repeated action over and over...

my dog used to do that. the only thing they understand is basic cause and effect.
if my dog does something wrong, i flip him on his back and stare him in the eyes until he is submissive and stops trying to escape. that'* what the dog school instructor reccomended to me
you can also try a squirt bottle of water to keep on hand whenever he does something wrong.
it will also help a lot to exercise him plenty... most of the time when dogs are misbehaving, it'* beacause they dont have anything else to do with their energy.

hahaha.

sorry

i would try the exercising though. it helps my dog a lot. If he doesn't get a few walks a day, he takes his energy out on household items

I know a lot of people think it'* wrong, but every dog I've ever had has peed on the carpet, gotten their nose rubbed all in it, left to snort it all day, then gets a bath afterwards. Unless they are unattended for a LONG time, they never pee on the floor again. I'd rather my dog learn it the hard way once, rather than the confusing way for years, and that'* IF they ever understand.

As far as the household stuff, pit bulls can be very dominant, but they are a good breed. If you are harsh in your disciplinary methods, it will have more of an effect on them. Also, unless you are trying to breed him, you will want to consider getting him neutered. It will calm him down.

My dog knows that if she takes my food, it'* on, and she always loses.

Again, this is always hit/miss... Every dog is different. It'* possible yours just has a little more... personality than most

Thats how we always trained out dogs and then we put them outside... and it has worked every dog we have owned and we've had atleast 10 dogs since ive was born and it has worked.... just my 2 cents tho.

LOL that'* going in the sig.

BTW: i believe you need to get it trained a little, some dogs like those are as someone said dominant, and need training. with the proper training, can be amazing dogs.. but if you're rough with them, they're monsters..
