Types Of Dog Obedience Training Available For Your Pit Bull Terrier
Posted by William Maine on
More and more Pit Bull owners are realizing the benefits of training their dogs. There are several reasons why an owner would like to train their pet, other than just the obvious housebreaking which is mandatory. A pet which is well trained, no matter the breed, is a pet liked and admired by any and all that come in contact with him. All pets, and certainly the Pit Bull, can not only benefit themselves, but their entire breed by making a good showing around company.
Responsible Pit Bull owners are now seeing the light that the only way to combat the negative attack campaign the media has launched against our misunderstood breed is to make sure our pets make a good showing no matter where they go.
As a responsible Pit Bull owner, you have several training options available for your use. Which method you choose to use for training your Pit Bull is solely left up to your own discretion. It is highly recommended that before you train your Pit Bull that you are up to the task at hand, and fully understand the training method you choose to use.
Here are several popular training types being used by trainers today.
After The Fact Discipline: This type of training is not recommended because it is not effective. It has been used for correcting behavior after an act has happened, rather than focusing on the prevention of the act.
Clicker Training: This type of training is a method of teaching and reinforcing positive behaviors with a motivational style. The goal of clicker training is to teach the dog obedience while avoiding harmful punishments.
Eclectic Training Method: Combines several different training methods, while emphasizing the method which seems to deliver the best behavioral results. This method uses the different methods to reinforce each other.
Koehler Method: This method has been deemed a heavy handed style of dog training which to many is simply too harsh. This method combines physical correction with the after-the-fact training style.
Lure Training: Lure training is great for nearly all dogs. It uses something that the dog likes, such as a toy or a special treat to teach commands. Over time, the lure is slowly removed from the training. Lure training is great for puppies as well as timid or dogs which are difficult to train. This method of training often succeeds where other fail.
Play Training: Play training is a motivational training method which takes two of the dog's primary drives, play and prey, and combines it into a fun filled training session which the dogs love. You know your Pit Bull better than anyone, so it is up to you how you'd like to go about training him. By picking a method which you think would appeal to you both, you'll insure a successful experience in training your Pit Bull.
