We’ve had a lot of dogs, but never a Pit Bull.
So we did a lot of research, and watched him closely for a few weeks to see how he’d fit in with our other dogs – an 18 month old Sheltie, Whisky, and a 9 year old miniature Dachshund, Saturn.
He came to us a nicely obedient and respectful dog, but as he grew bigger, we realized that our standard approach to obedience – more or less obedient, most of the time, using physical strength when needed, wasn’t going to be good enough with this strong, enthusiastic boy.
This is not always well received and definitely not proper off leash park etiquette. He also likes to jump up, to be sure he’s getting your full attention.
Once he reached 75lbs, we knew we needed help.
We’ve only been training since December, but it’s amazing.
So good that we’ve now enrolled Whisky in the program – he likes to chase cars, squirrels, cats, other dogs, crows, coyotes, …
We truly believe this could one day save Blue and/or Whisky’s life.
Thanks to everyone at Sit Happens for helping us accomplish so much with our dogs.
