Early socialization is the key.

It is important that your pit bull puppy learns to be comfortable with a variety of people and situations from a very early age. Expose him to children, men, women, and other animals. Get him used to being handled. Keep things positive and upbeat, and allow your Pit Bull puppy to approach new things in his own time. This early socialization is the most important component of your puppy's training program. Without this training, they tend to get vicious around other living things.


Use positive reinforcement to train your pit bull.

There is really nothing different about training your Pit Bull than there is any other breed of dogs. However, because of their muscular build and strength, training that requires leash corrections or other punishment is not always effective. You will probably have better results with positive reinforcement techniques, such as clicker training or other reward-based training. Most Pitbulls are eager to learn, and will be excited to work for rewards. 

Pit Bulls and Other Dogs

Because Pitbulls have a history of being bred as fighting dogs, they are not always tolerant of other dogs. It's important to remember, however, that each dog is an individual. Some do well in households with other dogs, while others show aggression towards other dogs. So it is important to introduce other dogs to them at a young age.

Dog sports:

Sports are a good thing to enter your Pit Bull into. Since they are agile and strong. They might do pretty well.
