Hi! Is Duke your first experience with pit bulls?

I can't say for sure - and there are plenty of other more qualified and experienced folks on this board - but I'd say he might be reacting to your sons return. If he was abusive to him before then Duke remembers that and could be acting out of fear based agression. I know there's folks here who can maybe refer you to a good trainer who is experienced with the breed. Good luck with Duke.

thanks for your post. i checked out fear agression and maybe this is what his problem is. i just don't understand why duke has been fine with him for the last 3 months. the only thing that i can think of that happened was when i was taking my son to work one morning last week. duke was sitting on back seat. when i got to the end of our driveway,i put on my brakes andit had been raining. my brakes sort of felt funny and i ripped out f--- g brakes. then duke started growling at my son.who was on front passaenger side. i got out and walkded him to the farmhouse. his hair was up on his back until we were half way to house. maybe he thought my son was going to do something to me.

when do you get acepted to this board.
i want in now. i need to talk no one understands pit bulls.. unlless they have one.
