Pit bulls are a notoriously misunderstood breed. But with proper care, attention, and training, they can become cute and adorable pets. It’s best to start training your pit bull when he’s a puppy. At this age, dogs are the most impressionable and no bad habits learned yet. You can use the information in this article no matter what color your bull is. The pin bull, which has markings on its coat, can be trained like any other type of pit bull.
Establish your dominance
Select a training program once you have purchased your new bull. Follow this program strictly. The one shown here discusses basic procedures, with a focus on how to maintain dominance of owners without confrontation, and is called a non-confrontational dominance program. The main concept of this training program is that your bull must earn everything he gets. You can implement this practice in all aspects of your dog’s life, from food to treats, affection, outdoor privileges, leash training, grooming, and socialization with the owner in a human space, such as a bed or couch.
Place your new puppy in his crate. This is where house training and establishing dominance begins. Establishing dominance early can be beneficial for both dog and owner in cultivating a mutually beneficial relationship.
Ignore the whining, barking, or aggressive behavior of your pit bull. Crate training is not punishment, but a dog should not be rewarded for displaying this behavior. Ignore your pit bull behavior until he calms down.
Give your pet calm and positive support for his good behavior, and remove him from his cage.
Give a pit bull a toy. If your pet is playful and protective of the toy, remove the toy permanently so that the dog doesn’t know he can get what he wants through dominance. Do not engage in confrontation with your dog. You don’t want Taurus to feel like they have to stand up for themselves at any given moment, or the aggression could become a hard habit to break. Only provide toys and playtime when your bull shows respect for your authority.
Assert your dominance
Limit the time you feed your pit bull regularly. You can gain control by being in control of when your dog eats, because your pit bull will feel as if he has the upper hand if there is always food in the bowl.
Allow your dog to explore its new environment. But at the same time, you must control the way your dog interacts with his new home and owner.
Put your pit bull on the ground immediately if it climbs onto the lap uninvited. Tell him to sit down, and if he agrees, give her the love she wants. This way you maintain non-confrontational dominance. Only praise your dog when he’s got it. For example, once your dog knows how to sit, just bend him when he complies particularly quickly with that command.
