Pit bulls (sometimes called “pitbulls”) are special animals. Essentially, they are working dogs. They need a job to do to impress their owner. That’s the secret to training a pit bull, and to enjoying them as the intelligent, energetic, and loyal animals they can be. Dog training is never an easy thing, and American Pit Bull training takes a special level of education and resolve, but it is well worth it! With patience and focus, you will find that the Pit Bull Terrier is a highly trainable dog, and that working with your pit bull can be a lot of fun.

Indeed, you can tell a lot about this working breed just by looking at them; the very appearance of the pit bull is indicative of the dog’s nature. These are sturdy, muscular dogs that are built for passion and power, and it’s vital that the owner take this into account while training his or her pit bull. For those beginning at the puppy stage, in particular, it is essential that, before you begin training, you ensure that your pit bull receives its shots and an okay from the vet. This is for your dog’s protection as well as the protection of other animals it comes into contact with. You will also want to check with your insurance carrier to be certain that there are no restrictions against pit bulls.

But while there is some work involved with training a pit bull, you will surely find that it is well worth it!

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.
