Bully Breed Training

Bully Breed Training

When you adopt a “bully breed” such as a pit bull terrier, American Staffordshire terrier, bulldog, Boston terrier or other similar canine, you may already know that your precious puppy might have a negative reputation that precedes him. As an owner of a so-called bully breed, you may find yourself frequently defending your dog against negative stereotypes such as dog aggression and other bad behaviors.

It’s important you train your canine companion to become what is known as a breed ambassador. This means that, with plenty of training, your dog can prove to the world what you already know – that he (and perhaps the rest of his breed) is a sociable, well-behaved canine who makes a perfect companion. Here are some tricks for training your bully breed to show off his best behavior all the time.

It’s crucial you develop a strong bond with your bully breed before socializing him with other people. Once he fully trusts you, he will respond better when you introduce him to the many faces of the world – make sure you include men and women of all different ages and races, as well as men with facial hair, people bundled up in coats and scarves, and people with other features that make them look unique.

Bully breeds tend to prefer the company of people, and not all will get along with other dogs. Knowing this, use caution when introducing an adult bully breed to other dogs. When you are raising puppies, it is sometimes easier to socialize them with other dogs and animals. The sooner you begin introducing a pittie pup or other bully breed to other dogs, the more likely he is to accept them and get along with them when he is older.

Aggression – K-9 Specialist will not take on any dog that shows aggression toward any internal family member.  This goes for daughter, son, nephew, niece, uncle, aunt, father, mother, In Laws etc.  We only deal with aggression that comes from the outside in.  We will teach the dog to be put under control by the handler to stay on their property at their side while being out doors.  This means under complete client contained supervision!! Client must specify clearly at the signing of contract on what type of aggression they are dealing with and understand what we will not take on.

All training comes with a lifetime guarantee for the life of the pet.

Note: Please understand that K-9 Specialist LLC can only teach you and provide you with the proper tools to control any unwanted behaviors your dog may have. For example, if you have a Hound and you dislike that he or she chases birds, K-9 Specialist LLC can help you control that unwanted behavior while you are in your dogs presence only. We cannot stop your dogs natural given drive, nor can we control it if the dog is unattended. However, as long as you are trained by us and follow the proper procedures on how to maintain control of your dog while in his or her presence, you will have a well behaved dog. Please note that this applies to all behavior modification courses. Do not be fooled by others who claim they can “cure” a problem that is a natural instinct to your dog. There is no cure for a bird dog wanting to chase birds for example, but there are ways to control them. Please do not waste your time or money on K-9 Specialist LLC if your expectations are to “cure” your dogs natural instinct. If your expectation is to have full control over your dog while in his or her presence, we are the team for you. This same concept also applies to aggressive behavioral issues.

Special Example: I, owner and operator of K-9 Specialist LLC, owns a naturally aggressive Pitbull. My Pitbull is ONLY aggressive towards other dogs or animals in general, not people. As long as I am with my dog, whether I have her on or off a leash, she will respect and obey my authority. For example, if another dog walks by and I am present with my Pitbull, she will remain in her place and not move or react to that dog because I am there to control the situation. However, if I walk away and leave my dog unattended, she will most definitely advance towards the other dog because I was not there to control the situation. I am giving this very real scenario to provide the public with the knowledge that just because a dog is well trained, the training does not take the natural instinct out of them at all. It would be like taking the “dog” out of the dog…completely impossible. That’s why I offer training to help teach and educate you as well as give you the tools to maintain proper control and behavior with your dog, as long as your in his or her presence. That’s the key right there. You MUST be in his or her PRESENCE to have complete control.
