Training techniques, discipline and behavioral issues with pit bull dogs
I'm seeking to train my dog Max to compete in WP. I'm new to the sport and have been training him via treadmill, chain dragging, and I recently got a drag sled for him. I have my own training regime set up right now where he's on the treadmill for 25-30min then we do a nice 30min session with a...
Hello! I was wondering if someone here might have any instructions on how to build a weight pull cart. I'm looking for something to use on carpet.
My name is Kaitlyn and I'm new to this site. I have a 1 year old female American Bull dog/Pit Bull/ Dalmatian Mix. She has always been very shy and timid. Her confidence level is low. But I have been working with her for about three months now. She is improving drastically with...
My American Pitbull Terrrer is just over 3 years old "Male". I have seen that he does posses some drive it's taken me a lot of training to stop him from getting cats He still goes for them especially if I am not watching. So I used disc catching to change up his catch instincts.
I have been...
i am planning to condition my $#@! (non-pit, but already very muscular naturally), but i honestly don't know where to start. we''ve had a few ideas.
-pulling weights uphill
-fetch up and downhill
-carpet mill (know any cheap ones???)
- hopefully swimming
Was wandering what different methods you use for strength training. I'm aware of the following;
1. Carpet Mill
2. Weight Collar
3. Drag chain during walk
4. Weighted Harness
How do you get the dog to work as hard/intensity as he does on a carpet mill, with the other 3?
Do you add more...

I have a 9 week old puppy (game bred) who constantly bites people really hard and does not let go.. What should I do? From all apbt I've owned I never had to deal with this issue.. Can someone give me advice please, it would be highly appreciated.
The only problem I have with my dog is that she gets too excited when he sees other dogs. If I can solve this problem, she will be perfect.
Whenever we go on walks or Petsmart, and she sees other dogs right? So then she starts to pull on his leash desperately trying to get to the dog although...

The Game Test
Heres a article written about Game testing your dog.
In my opinion, the Game Test is a very important part of breeding and matching gamedogs. I think that the purpose of the game test is misunderstood by many dogmen. I also think that a lot of poor advice has been written about...

(UNDERSTANDING THE CARPET MILL ) ---by hunterman ------
Let me tell you what i love about a carpet mill. It can develop a very tough dog. It's kind of hard to explain but let me use anology to try ...it's the legs that go first in the ring for a boxer and it's even more pronounced for a kick...
I was working passing out flyers door to door and we saw a pit walking down the street. We were naturally scared of a random pit walking down the street with no collar. He was following us and I finally said "maybe he is nice" I stopped and pet him and he was a lovable dog. I went back to work...

There are several places to train a puppy in my area. Some of them are PetSmart and Petco as well as other places.
What are the thoughts on training at a young age of 4 months for puppy 1 or 6 moths at a regular dog class? And what is the most you would pay for a 6-8 week class?
