Although American Pit Bull Terriers have a poor reputation, the truth is that these dogs can be loyal, loveable, and trustworthy. As with all other breeds, the key is proper training.
1. Use Only Positive Training Techniques
The worst way to train a Pit Bull is by instilling fear by being overly aggressive towards him and using physical punishments to keep him in line.
Instead, use positive reinforcement techniques at times when your dog behaves appropriately and use assertive techniques to make sure he knows you’re the boss. This will prevent your dog from becoming fearful and aggressive.
