HAVE FUN TRAINING YOUR PITBULL
Sharing fun time with my pitbulls is something I look forward to everyday. Sadly I can't spend every second with them as I am confident they would like. Other duties and obligations stand in the way. Therefore making the most of the time we spend together is always my goal. To accomplish this, I employ several routines during play time, which we (me and the dogs) both look forward to. I want to make sure that after the training and exercise session is over with, that they are fully tired and ready to retire to their kennel for much deserved rest. I also want to make sure that myself and the dog have a good time too.
YOU'LL NEED YOUR TRAINING COLLAR
Instead of frustrating yourself and the dogs, this is the approach that works… guaranteed. Take your electronic training collar or as some call it; training collar, and after adjusting it to the individual dog's proper training collar setting, take a single dog out for training and begin the exercise. When the dog catches the flirt, praise him for his endeavor and allow him to enjoy the fruits of his labor for a few seconds. Then instruct the dog with the firm command "Let Go". When he of course refuses, you say "let go" again, and this time you give a little electric stimulation with the pitbull training collar. Within minutes, you will say; "let go" and the flirt will be lying on the ground guaranteed.
Over the past few years, remote training collars have become hugely popular. This of course has resulted in hundreds of cheaply made overseas collars hitting the market. I recently saw a cheaply made unit selling for around fifty dollars that had a 4.9 rating on Amazon with 70 reviews. This caught my attention. Upon close examination, I noted the unit had only been available for less than 2 weeks and that all the reviews were FAKE. Although the reviews on the surface looked legit, they were simply copied and pasted from real reviews. Don't be fooled, by a cheap price. This is a product that can't afford to be defective and cause injury to your beloved dog.
TRAIN EVEN STUBBORN DOGS WITH AID OF A TRAINING COLLAR
Do the same with each dog, and after all have been trained, run each through the exercise one more time. Then bring them all out, and determine which dog or dogs under the added excitement of "peer pressure" forgot everything he had just learned and retrain him with the aid of the electric pitbull training collar, with the presence of one or two dogs that need no further training. Once he quickly responds to your commands, bring them all out again.
Look for an established brand used by professional dog trainers. Such brands will include collars capable of shocking a dog up to a mile a way, which comes in handy in certain hunting scenarios. You don't need that. Therefore one of their lower price models may be sufficient for your needs.
FLIRT POLE TRAINING LEAVES PITBULLS TIRED AND SATISFIED
I can have six or eight pitbulls participating in the exercise, when one of them catches the flirt I commend and allow about 5 or 10 seconds for the dogs to play with it. Then, I command “Let Go”, and every dog let’s go instantly. I walk over to the flirt pick it up and the dogs position themselves for the next go round. All it takes is about 10 or 15 minutes of play time and your pitbull will be completely tired and satisfied. As a side note: I always make sure that each dog has had the opportunity to get plenty of water before putting them up.
You will need to determine the features that are important for you and your dog or dogs. Some training collars can control as many as three or even four dogs. If you have only one dog, don't pay for something you don't need. If your dog is small, the top manufactures have units designed for dogs as small as ten pounds. If you have a dog that is stubborn, you may need a unit with a lot of power. If you have a dog that is aggressive toward other dogs; you will need the extra power. One thing that is not needed is 100 levels of stimulation. My favorite collar had just 7 levels, that was enough for any situation.
