I dont understand all the hate for cesar milan, he has dedicated his life to helping dogs, and has done more than all the people on this site put together. You may not agree with his method, but unless you spend your days rehabilitating dogs that otherwise would be dead, nobody currently living on t...

well i can sense a decent amoutn of hostility in both retorts to my comments, i think its sad, this is a fourm, where we are suposed to collaberate and assist eachother for a common cause, Why would you assume that giving some information about the use of a head collar means that I cannot walk my do...

I would either feed them alone, which isnt really that bad of an inconvienince if that is all you have to do. Many dogs can normally fall into a nice heirchy and its not a probelm, but with a pit, its not pretty and dogs can get hurt. I dont know how comfterable you are with your trainign skills, bu...

i dont need any type of restraining collar for my dog, you should teach them to walk next to you and not pull, if you have to get a device like that it sounds like your dog walks you around, you need to take yor dog for a walk, pack leaders walk in front, not get dragged behind. Look up some informa...

The dog wizard, will not be liked by everyone, these days, the positive re inforcement is what people preach about, but pitbulls can be a dangerous animal, and even deadly, trust me there will come a time when chasing a little cat will be more apealing than the treat that he gets every day for doing...

You probably have to socialize her more, i had a dog that was like that and just had to get em out and expierencing everything. Not all at once, must crawl before they walk. Keep it positive, if they leave on a bad note theyl remember it and associate what ever they expierenced with bad, so for exam...

Thank You, KeelazMom, waht you said is pretty much what i gathered from these past 4 or 5 days. I realize that tug of war is not the best game for pitbulls to play, and never will i allow them to now, but when they were puppies it was an easy way to keep them tired. My room mate plans to move on in ...

well, originally he was to be fostered, but like in your article, once i worked with him and his sweet personality peaked through, we decided to keep him. He is increadably submissive for a pitbull, so i thought it might be an exception and my other male would get along ok with him. Now they are of ...

A growel is a bite that has not conneceted and you need to nip[ this in the butt right now, its uncharastic for a pit to growel at people like that, she probabluy wasnt socialized enough. Take her out more and keep it positive, have people give her treats when she is calm and seecure, i fostered a d...
