Teach a Pitbull to stop pulling.

Dog Training and Behavior In Centreville, VA: Og is a recently adopted pitbull. To say that he is incredibly strong would be an understatement. Og is almost 80lbs of pure muscle and excitement. Due to his excitement, he has had some issues since his adoption. He bit his owner, he is destructive in the house, doesn’t like his crate, and has pulled her down on walks.

In the video, you can see he is walking on a loose leash. I helped his owner transform their relationship inside the home first. She is now able to control him with her voice. This includes claim objects from him, claiming space so that he’s not following her everywhere, and can answer the door without him rushing to the door.

How To Teach A Pitbull Without Treats, Painful Collars or Commands

How do you teach a pitbull to stop pulling on leash? With such a strong dog it is imperative to have control over their brain. We will never be able to match their physical strength. Og still has some of the typical Pitbull ADD outside but he and his owner have improved so much in less than 2 hours.

No treats or painful collars are used to achieve this. Just clear communication in a way he naturally understands! Stop worrying about commands. Dogs don’t give each other commands. They make each other feel a certain way which is vital to their survival.

I train people to train their dogs. It doesn’t matter if your dog listens to a trainer, they need to listen to you as you are their owner, leader and protector. This comes via your relationship, not commands.
