  1. Obedience Training
    My 10 week old red nose pittie has some strange behaviors. I have trained dogs and dealt with problem dogs in the past. My pit/boxer mix had been a bait dog for dog fighters when I stole him and rescued him. He had a lot of issues but I was patient, and a good calm-assertive leader and didn't...

    This is my first post so bare with me if I've missed anything. This is my second pitbull, my last lady lived a happy 15 1/2 years, never had any problems with socialization. Our new baby is a 5 mo old spayed female pitbull. We rescued her, she was left in a box taped up dumped outside a closed...

    We adopted our pitbull somewhat recently but he has been being trained as a service dog retriever here in Florida. Recently we started having an issue. He clings to me, which as a service dog, he should do, but when I leave him home with my partner, she tells me shes concerned because hes acting...

    I just rescued my boy from the shelter where he was for 6 months. 2 of which they tell me he didn't go outside at all. Getting him to go outside in general is getting a little better (food training) and he will walk right next to me when in the backyard. However, put the leash on him to go for a...

    Hi everyone, We rescued a 10 month old American Pitbull Terrier about a month and a half ago. For the most part, she is very well behaved. She is house broken, listens to commands and is gentle to everyone and other animals. She is respectful and doesn’t grab food on the ground or beg. If she...

    So I just got my first pitt two days ago. She just turned eight weeks old and is great with myself, the cats, my mother, and my son. Anyways, I took her out today to meet and greet some strangers. On all occasions, she will bark and, when they come up to her, she tucks her tail and hides behind...

    About two months ago my girlfriend picked up a stray dog. She is a one year old, not spayed/neutered, has heart worms (which is why she has not been spayed/neutered yet) Lab Pointer Pit Bull Mix. We named her Rogue (she's got a small white spot on her head so I thought she looked like Rogue...

    Hello! I have an approximately 5 month old male pitbull who is very stubborn. It has taken a LOT of training to get him to go potty outside and to tell us when he wants to go out. He was doing excellent up until this morning. I went to let him outside like I normally do, wake up, walk to the...

    I've had my pit since she was 5 weeks old. She is now 4 months almost. Within the last month she has acted terrified of people and it makes no sense. She has never had anything but positive experiences with people and was never mistreated by anyone. She is a spoiled girl and everyone loves her...

    We had a child back in March and before this our pit Jake was the center of attention. We brought him everywhere with us and did everything with him. During the pregnancy I was away on business 5 days out of the week so we never got the chance to break him of his normal life style. Now my son is...

    My new dog Chico that I adopted from the shelter about a month ago is terrified of the spring pole now. When I first made it and had him on it he loved it and wouldnt let go for the longest time. But one time which was a dumb move on my part, I hung it up on my iron gym pull up bar and he was...
