Anissa, I will speak for myself and many other members of the forum. It is getting VERY frusterating to try and help you.
In this particular discussion, your story has changed drastically
. At the beginning the trainer approached you and Jaida bit her, then she was lunging and growling before the bite, now the trainer snuck up on Jaida and surprised her, resulting her the trainer being bitten. Those three things do NOT match, nor are they being "twisted". I can only go by YOUR words, and your words clearly conflict.
I went back and read the posts about Brock, and your husband's deployment was
listed as part of the reason you re-homed him.
With my lack of experience, my husband deploying to Iraq for the next 12-18 months, my upcoming surgery, a daughter and our 2 year old/male Charlie to take care of.. As strong, committed and determined as I am.. I know I will not be capable of providing the best home for Brock, and/or the best supervision over 2 immature males.
Not the only reason, but a contributing factor.
Now, for a reason that I don't understand, you have added another dog to your family - when ALL of the same things that are listed above still apply. The only difference is that instead of trying to supervise 2 immature males, you have an immature male and an immature female and that female has some clear behavorial problems.
MANY people here have been trying to help you, but you seem to be completely unwilling to take ownership of the difficult position you have put yourself
into. Admitting you are in over your head (which is how it seems from infront of my computer screen) is the first step in figuring out how to solve the problem.
You need to stop pointing fingers and look to yourself for the source of the problem and the solution. I've been in your position, and in fact, I am still in your position. It's a different set of problems, but I struggle with them every day with my dog. Admitting you are the source of the problem is VERY hard to do, until you have done that the problem will never go away.
Now, here is what I would do...
- Stand up and move away from your computer, if you have time to be here, you have time to look for a trainer for your dog.
- Call Charles and get the name / phone number of a trainer to evaluate Jaida
- Call that trainer and make an evaluation appointment for BOTH dogs as soon as humanly possible. Evaluations may be expensive, but having your wound site ripped open won't be cheap, and neither will a lawsuit because Jaida jumps up on someone and gives them a 1 inch scratch. (and no, that is NOT far fetched)
- Bring your daughter to the evaluation, as she likely will be the primary caregiver during the 6 weeks of recovery from your surgery. If she will not be, then you need to bring whomever will be.
- work with that trainer every day you can with both dogs and your daughter to get as much work as possible into them before your husband leaves. Both of you will need to work both dogs individually and together every day.
- create a complete and through game plan to deal with the dogs after your surgery, including pre-arranged housing if necessary. You can NOT depend on the dogs to "sense" that you are ill and not jump on you or pull you around. It's nice to think that, but unrealistic and dangerous
- Be prepared to accept that your dogs may need to be on 100% crate time while you are in recovery. Get them used to it immediately. You will not want them freaking out if/when that needs to happen. My mother had her gall bladder out, and was unable to walk their fifteen pound Pomeranian for two weeks. The odds of you being able to do anything with your two Pit Bulls is VERY small.
- Stop taking every post here as an attack. We are trying to help you and your dogs, but you seem to be unwilling to hear anything except for what you want to hear.
