Training Tips

  • Short 5 minute training sessions 4-6 times a day are more effective than one long session. 

  • Dogs need and respond to positive rewards when learning new behaviors. Remember, most behaviors that we want are boring to a dog, so it’s important to make it more interesting to them. A positive reward is a tasty treat, or a game of fetch, or anything that your dog enjoys. 

  • You provide the guidance and information he needs to succeed and build his confidence. Always praise your dog when he is doing something good. 

  • Be consistent with your terminology and routine. Your dog will become confused if you let them steal your socks sometimes, but not others. 

  • Start small and easy, and slowly build from there. Most people jump too quickly into advanced environments (outside on a walk, etc.), so make sure you start inside in a safe and quiet location. 

  • Use Aak-Aak or Ah-Ah instead of the word “no.” The canine mother would use this type of sound to correct her pup. Only use “no” for very serious matters, if it is overused the canine will no longer respond. 

  • Be patient and calm. Dogs respond to your tone of voice and facial expressions as well as your emotions. Dogs were once predators, and can read your body language quickly. Don’t try to fake your emotions as your dog will know. 

  • Never lose your temper with a dog or strike him - EVER.

Mission Statement

Our goal is to provide abused, abandoned or homeless pit bull dogs with the medical attention they need; as well as the love and attention they deserve to heal - both emotionally, and physically.

 

We will work to facilitate the rescue and placement of abused or abandoned pit bulls into responsible homes and participate in fundraising to provide veterinary treatment; spay/neuter; food and shelter.

 

We are dedicated to fostering responsible pit bull ownership through education, adoption, and breed advocacy.
