Im not going to put him down. Wouldn't a trainer that focuses on dominance use negative training?

most training facilities and trainers these days have embraced the positive reinforcement method. But that is certainly something you should ask when selecting a trainer. Do your homework and explain to them some of the issues you're experiencing and they will build a training program based around that. I would definitely recommend at first to do at home one on one training as opposed to a class environment.

Why did my dog bite me?

There are many many different trainers. When you say negative, I know it's correction training is that what you mean? I hope any you find is not going To be negative but they may suggest better tools to help you control your dog. I use a prong collar and positive reinforcement. Seems counter productive to some but in reality I needed to control my dog and then I learned how to read him. If you don't know your dogs signs or how to read him positive reinforcement will hurt and you will just be rewarding him for his Bad behavior. I went though many trainers before finding one I liked. Most will offer a consultation but ask questions on the phone about their training styles. Some dogs are softer and can work with positive only. Some dogs aren't food or toy motivated and are harder and take a stronger approach. It's not a bad thing to need help. Positive only approaches work but they take a LOT longer and it doesn't seem like you have the luxury of waiting for it to work. Find a trainer who specializes in all styles to help you.

Great post Ames! And also just because a trainer is great at working with dominant dogs, doesn't mean they use abusive techniques. Like Ames said, sometimes a prong collar is necessary with really hard headed dogs.
Your dog is probably flipping out and acting like you are hurting him because he doesn't want to relinquish control. He wants to be the one calling the shots, and he can't.

Why not? Are you like the rest of those idiots that never learn until it is too late?

You have no control over that dog, so not only does it put you at risk, but others also. Heaven help you if you have children.
Are you just a blind dog worshiper too afraid of the thought of the "death of a puppy dog," and do you have that pathetic mentality that "all dogs have a right to be loved" syndrome?
Not all dogs are created equal, no matter what anyone wants to think.

No matter what you learn you are wasting your time if you are afraid of that dog.
What I never said before was that. although you never said the breed, I know already he is not an ApBT.
Which means he most likely has HA blood in him.
No ApBT is 73# at 11 months unless it has other blood in it. (You're on GP, so I assume you call it a "pitbull" even though that is not a breed)
Damn shame is, if and when this dog goes off, the ApBT's name will have to suffer another negative.

Already went at your face......what more evidence do you need that this dog is not for you?
That dog is already establishing itself higher than you, and you are the weakling.

Hopefully you are the one that suffers and nobody else if this dog goes off.
Dog already proved to you you cannot trust him.
If he gets anyone else, I hope you are arrested for harboring a known threat!

Well, carry on with your fantasy love for a bad dog.......a pet you fear. SMH.....

Hi,
Dogs often bite when they are frustrated because they aren't getting to go where they want.They want to live their comfort zone,If someone interfere in their privacy then they try to bite.

That is the kicker right there for me too... Hands and arms, until mentally matured around 2 or so, pups can be pups. But going at the face to me is a dirt nap.

Camo gets that test all the time since he missed the formative weeks with his siblings being abandoned young. He is a very mouthy lil guy but starting to wrap his brain around bite inhibition. I do work with him daily.

A test I have done since day 1 is when he is riled up and after hands and arms, I'll pick him up and put my nose to his, or lay down and put my face out there. He has never bit, he will give a lick or two, then look for a hand\arm to 'bite'.

The going for the face thing is a huge no in my book and would be an instant dirt nap for any dog for me. Having a 3 year old boy, my kid comes before any dog, no matter how much I love the dog.

YES. A qualified and trained owner of seriously powerful animals is assuming correctly.. Your post pointed exactly where it needed to for the assumptions to be legitimate.

You aren't in possession of a Labrador... You own an off-breed of the American Pit Bull Terrier, a dog bred for hundreds of years to be a "top athlete".. mix that in with improper breeding practices and puppy peddling and you now have a dog (73 lbs at 11 months btw) That scares you and that you cant control..

Do what you like,, but one day youll learn that today, you should have listened...

I'm waiting to hear back from a few people that I think can help me train my dog. In the meantime, someone gave me advice that I should give him more exercise, so I'm going to try to fit in 2 hours of exercise for him everyday of bike riding, jogging and flirt pole. It's weird, but when we go at a medium pace, he walks perfectly besides me and is fine.

Why can't you just be nice and try to help me? Isn't that one of the main purposes this forum is for? My dog isn't some attack dog, he's a nice dog. I experienced this problem, and want to fix it.
