I have a couple questions

To begin with I want to tell you about what happens to pitbulls in our area. I live in Elkhart IN and 3 years ago I went into the Humane Society to look at the dogs. I saw a beautiful pitbull puppy. I asked them about adopting her. I was told I couldn't. That they eutinized pitbulls and did not adop...

I just read the sticky about the mouthy puppy and learned about calling the dog a jerk. It sounds funny but if it works, it is worth it. Other people who don't know what is going on may think I am off my rocker though. Yes to your question at least I am trying. I have 5 older children living in the ...

if he bit me hard, i bit him. Just like they say to do woth a toddler. So they know it hurts. I never bit him hard. Just put my teeth to him and put a little pressure. He doesn't bite now. I laughed when I read this. It sounds funny, but you are right. I does work. I forgot that my husband did that ...

She is the one that rescued my pits from the Humane Society for me and helped me train them. She not just trains them but shows you and yo...

My pitbull Boyd was basically that way. He was rescue. We have had him about 2 years and he just started giving us kisses a couple of months ago. I am no expert, but I think it just takes some dogs a little longer. With Boyd I know his problem was due to his last owners. We had to show him he could ...

LOL, I would love to see my husband scream like a girl. I would fall off my seat laughing. Thanks for the advice. We will try that along with the food training. The yelping may help with her nipping when we walk by her.

I have tried to work on gentle with her some with treats. I never thought of using her whole meal to teach her. May be she would catch on better that way, especially if she is really hungry. My other dogs caught on really quick. I can put a treat between my lips and they take it and don't even touch...
