    I found a free small carpetmill in my area. Super stoked about this find. I've watched every youtube video and read every info filled article and post I could find so Gimlet will be happy to work on this thing. It's at a low angle right now and seems kind of stiff, but it has the ability to be...

    So on one of my Facebook groups for DIY diabetic alert dog training, I was told the other day that my red nose pup, Broly won't make a good diabetic alert dog. They said that pitties don't have as good of sense of smell as other breeds with longer snouts. They said his about was too "short"...

    I have a 5 month old Red Nose Female, I got here when she was 14 weeks old. Shes just beginning to understand house training with fewer accidents inside the house but the biggest issue is the crate training. No matter if I take her out and make sure she goes to the bathroom she will go in her...

    Hi there, I recently posted that I rescued a 3 year old pitbull/lab mix. He was never abused in his life, I know the owners and they are good people but he was just not getting the proper attention that a pitbull needs. He's been with me now for the past week and he is adjusting to his new...

    We have a 6 yr old 1/2 pitt, half plott hound. She is basically so sweet with the baby and us and those she knows.

    Hi All! First post here! We just rescued an adorable 2 yr old APBT last week. She has been a bundle of joy and the center of our lives already! When it comes to peeing/pooping, she has been a little inconsistent. The first few days it was pee/poop a few times each day inside the house, then a...
  11. Obedience Training
    We are having a difficult time getting our puppy to poop outside. We've tried only feeding her a particular times and then taking her outside but she won't eat all at one time she grazes. Even if we wait several hours before putting food out for her when we put it down she takes two bites and...

    Hi, I just adopted a 9 month old pitbull one month ago. She has been doing really well with training and responding to me and my husband taking care of her. However, the last few days we have been unable to find out why she is barking all day long. She is barking RIGHT NOW and has been out...

    Anyone with any experience? I know someone is going to have an opinion at least! I finally got a new treat pouch and used it during our walks today. Nala responded VERY well. She is very food driven. Kaos knows the deal and comes to me and sits and stays and does every trick he can (except...

  18. Obedience Training
    As some of you may know, we have been keen to play fetch with Zik for a few months. We got a tennis ball launcher and we have been paying fetch for a few weeks. The only issue we have had is that he does not let go the ball once he gets it. We have to pull it out of his mouth and this defeats...

The neighbors were seen abusing them and then told her they were going to put them down. We found a home for the boy. My parents are keeping a female as well as their other dog...

    So I've been training a couple weeks now using the e-collar, things have been going great! I've basically been following the method of using very low stim levels and training recall, and a default stay with sit/down. My dog is a bit reactive (not aggressive) but very interested which can cause...
