Pit Bull Training: How To Train A Pit Bull To Be A Good Citizen (Canine Good Citizen)
Pit bulls get a bad rap, but they are very friendly, people-oriented pets. With their high energy level and strength, pit bulls are not for everyone. A well-trained pit bull can be an ambassador for its breed. It shows the world that Pit bulls can make wonderful pets. They have a good home and good training. Because of their muscular build and muscular strength, training that requires leashes or other punishment is not always effective with pit bulls. You will probably have better results with positive reinforcement techniques, such as clickser training or other reward-based training. The Canine Good Citizen Program is made by the American Kennel Club. It involves testing your dog on several skills. If it passes the test, the dog gets a Canine Great Citizen certificate. Advanced dog sports offer the perfect combination of exercise and mental stimulation. A trained dog will be able to take its cues from you rather than react to the presence of another dog.
