You probably already know that “Pit Bull” is a generic umbrella term used to label a variety of dogs that have certain distinguishing features. Breeds that most commonly fall under this term include the American Pit Bull Terrier, American Staffordshire Terrier, Argentine Dogo, Alapaha Blue Blood Bulldog, American Bulldog, Bullmastiff, and Cane Corso. Quite honestly though, if you have any of these bully breeds or a dog that is a mix of several, you pretty much have it made. Dogs referred to as Pit Bulls are typically some of the easiest to train. They are brilliant, athletic, and eager-to-please, so the sky is the limit, when it comes to teaching tricks, too!
Pit Bulls tend to be over-achievers, and will attack an agility course with tenacity and vigor. From ascending an A-frame to climbing a wall to hurdling an obstacle, there is nothing these dogs cannot do on an agility course. Have training treats handy and provide praise the second he responds to the equipment correctly, so he knows he is doing something right. For example, learning to go through an agility tunnel may require a trail of treats placed inside.
