Training techniques, discipline and behavioral issues with pit bull dogs
Source: The Threat of Stillness | Wilde About Dogs
I recently observed a temperament test being conducted to determine whether a dog was aggressive toward other dogs. The dog in question was a large, strong breed, and there was much concern because of his past history. As I watched, it became...
Anyone notice a change in their dogs behavior when they started to come into adolescence around 2 years old? My dog has been making subtle growls and lifting up her lip in certain scenarios (HA). She has never done this before.

Since APBT are working dogs, I think that when I have given my dog a job it has allowed them to burn off some serious mental energy. I have taught her how to ride a skateboard and that was really fun for her. Anyone have any suggestions on tricks/jobs to give these dogs as an average joe without a...

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...

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...

My two girls during a closely monitored introduction at the watering hole, after a little exercise and some obedience work. Tense at first, but soon diffused. Not a bad start.

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 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...

I love apbt but these guys are not as good for guard...
Got a pup 13 months old. For the most part still acts like a pup but a few weeks ago I noticed he started showing signs of aggression to people riding bikes or skateboards. He's not HA but something about someone riding a bike or skateboard drives him crazy. has anyone experienced anything like...

Feeling happy or mad? A dog can tell your mood just by looking at the expression on your face.
New research in the journal Current Biology represents the first solid evidence that an animal other than...

He is being taken outside very often...
I need some training help for a 14mo male pit my neighbor's trying to place. He jumps on me and tries to bite my gloves when I let him run loose in the fenced area I have. He also jumps/bites at my hands when I'm holding rawhides or sticks. He doesn't do it all the time, just when he...
