Agility dog training and pit bull terriers

Spending time training your Pit Bull can be really satisfying and delightful for you both. It helps make a stronger bond between dog and proprietor that’s important for the happiness of both parties. There are numerous different types of training that you can choose to do with your Pit Bull like agility training.

Agility training is the process of educating your dog to successfully navigate an obstruction course. However, your pet should be suitable to do it by only hearing and observing your commands, if the training is successful. During an event, the dogs are timed and to win mustn’t make any missteps and must have the fastest time. It takes a lot of practice for a dog to be successful at this, but can be relatively delightful for both dog and coach. This exercise is especially good for Pit Bulls because it gives them a good outlet for all the redundant energy they feel to have.

Top experts recommend not starting agility training until your dog is at least one year old, even not to enter a competition before that age. Numerous proprietors who train their dogs to take part in these events will buy their own equipment to have at home so that they can begin training the dog at an earlier age. Agility training equipment can be relatively pricey, so some coaches prefer to make their own equipment. Instructions can be set up online and in books that should be available either in your regional library or bookstore. Proprietors should be careful to watch the dog for any signs of injury because sometimes working on agility training while the puppy dog is still growing will put a lot of strain on joints and bones that aren’t completely conditioned yet. It’s recommended to have your dog cleared by a veterinarian before beginning any type of agility training.

The dog should also understand and observe fundamental commands before beginning any other type of training. Any type of training helps the dog and proprietor to make a better relationship with each other, allowing them to work more and more together as time goes on. You should also work through any actions or aggression issues your Pit Bull may have before considering agility training. The results will be less satisfactory and will take more time to achieve if the dog is also fighting with other issues.

Most Pit Bull proprietors that are serious about their dog battling in agility competitions will enroll him in a training class, at least to help educate him on the basics, then work with the dog on their own to enhance what he has learned. Being in a class will also help your dog work on his socialization, which will make him bear more around other dogs. Pit Bulls are likely to fight when around other dogs, especially those dogs are of the same gender.

The most important thing to keep in mind is no matter what type of training you do with your Pit Bull, you both should enjoy it. Spending time together will help make a better bond, leading to a lasting relationship. Whether you want your dog to fight or not, the benefits for both you and the dog are numerous.
