Training Pitbull Puppies- The #1 Mistake In Pitbull Puppy Training
When it came to training Pitbull puppies, Laura and I had to learn the hard way!
My wife and I both work outside the home, so we decided early on to build "Rocco" a pen in our relatively small backyard. We equipped it with a spacious enclosure, to protect him from the elements. We would only allow "Rocco" inside our home on a very limited basis. We would try to give him attention, especially when we got home from work, however it probably wasn't enough.
We noticed that "Rocco's" barking and jumping gradually became worse as time went by. He really was over excited when we entered the pen upon returning from work.
When we took him on walks, he was pretty much out of control. He would "dart" all over the place, in an effort to expend energy. Upon seeing other dogs, he would bark violently. At 82lbs, he was very difficult to control!
When we were just about to put "Rocco" up for adoption, we ran across some training tips from a professional Pitbull handler. We soon discovered that we had broken the 3 most important rules in training Pitbull puppies.
2) DON'T isolate Pitbull puppies for lengthy periods of time. They are loving and social animals.
3) Allow them AMPLE opportunity to expend energy
