Dealing with Pit Bulls

DEALING WITH PIT BULLS

DEALING WITH PIT BULLS

Probably a lot of people will want to rush out and get a Pit Bull or a Rottweiler after seeing this page.

No one would steal your toddler with Rocco in the house.

Dale is really good too. Look at how beautiful and shiny his coat is. He is about three-years-old and has an awesome personality and loves boating and camping.

Teva is a very smart, athletic dog with a great attitude and temperament.

This group of dogs swims about six times every day and are pretty good at their job.

WE CAN TRAIN YOUR DOG

The female Rottweiler has more horsepower than the male Pit Bulls and Chesapeake and Labrador Retrievers.

Rocco gets tired after awhile and decides he has had enough. Bunker the Chesapeake Retriever got a hold of the ball and can be seen swimming in circles with his crew in tow. The dogs like swimming in tandem and it makes them feel like they are on the hunt.

The Superdogs are a well-integrated hunting group and all get along.

Rocco is a good boy, a mellow, loving, quiet kind of dog.

Pit Bulls make wonderful family pets, will look out for small children, and are a lot of fun when trained.

You don’t have to worry about anyone stealing your children, or anything else, with a Pit Bull around.

A lot of people condemn their Pit Bulls to death when they fail to train them though.

No one cares that you love your Pit Bull and it is the most wonderful, gentle, affectionate animal if it is not trained and acts aggressively—much less so if it kills a dog or cat, or bites someone.

Rocco-5

It is not that Pit Bulls are an aggressive breed.

Pit Bull are Terriers and Terriers have a tendency to take everything to the extreme. If they are happy, they are really happy, If they want something, they really want it. If they turn aggressive, they are really aggressive and really scary.

Rocco-6

Choosing the right kind of training for your Pit Bull or Bully Breed is critical for long-term success.

Rocco-7

Training based on rewards and punishments generally does not work.

Doing cute pet tricks and asking the dog to “Sit” and giving it treats will do nothing to control INSTINCT and GENETICS.

Compulsion training based on corrections and using shock collars often makes Pit Bulls and other Bully Breeds even more aggressive.

Sending your dog away to a boarding facility probably won’t work either because almost always it is the owner who really needs the training.

BE AFRAID of anyone who wants to takes your dog away from you to train it.

Rocco-9

What is different about the Superdog programs is we teach you how to have a relationship with your dog based on RESPECT and TRUST so you will be able to control your dog’s instinct and genetics.

Most dog training is totally ineffective and a total waste of money. That is why 99% of the dog trainer websites do not show trained dogs to substantiate the trainers’ competence.

No one hires contractors who don’t have pictures of kitchens, bathrooms and roofs.

Rocco-11

The Superdog method is based on having a relationship and the dogs doing things for the right reason. There is a lot of love, affection, friendship, petting, and playtime.

Niki Taylor image

We don’t hang out with our dogs and “Sit,” “Down,” “Stay,” “Come, “Heel.”

Mostly, there is no command and you don’t have to say anything. The dogs are not aggressive, don’t chase cats, not pushy, whiny, manipulative, controlling and they listen to the owners.

Superdog is a BEHAVIORAL TRAINER who focuses on TEMPERAMENT and QUALITY of INTERACTIONS.

LILLY THE PIT BULL

Lilly the Pit Bull was a really good girl except for viciously attacking other dogs.

Park8

Lilly was confused about who was supposed to protect her, and the owner Monica, around dogs.

Park2

Like many dogs, Lilly became aggressive after other dogs traumatized her.

Park3

An un-trained dog like Lilly did not have a lot to focus on other than her fears and suspicions.

Park5

Cats play by doing things like working together to catch a rubberband. Often when dogs get together it is all about submission and dominance.

Park4

People often introduce their dog to other dogs and hope for the best, oblivious to the fact that the other dog is causing their pooch severe angst.

Park6

About half of our Superdog clients come to us because they are no longer able to walk their dog or take it places out of fear that they will encounter other dogs—even if the other dogs are friendly.

Park7

Monica chose Superdog because it was the only dog trainers with photos of hundreds of dogs they trained. She was put off by the other dog trainers’ websites because they were “pretty much all talk and no pictures to substantiate their competence with behavioral problems.”

Park9

Monica lives in Sacramento and hired the owner of the Superdog franchise David Baron. These photos were taken during Lilly’s fourth lesson.

Pits playing image

The Superdog philosophy is that there needs to be consistent leadership and good, strong obedience basics so the dog will not act-out erratically.

Behavioral training like you see on this page starts when the dog will do an hour on “Stay” and “Heel” subordinately behind the owner.

Park11

The whole point of the training is to have the dog focus on the owner no matter how severe the distractions. Lilly now knows that if there are ‘problems’ that her owner will protect her.

Park12

With only three lessons under her collar, Lilly will do an hour “Stay,” “Heel,” and a great “Come” when called. The dog is now focused on the owner Monica and being obedient instead of the fear and suspicion.

Park13

One of the biggest mistakes dog owners make is taking off the leash too soon. Even if the owner does not need to touch the leash, it makes the dog feel like it is connected and accountable to the owner.

Park15

This was only Lilly’s second time going to the dog park. She made a new friend “Blue” the Pit Bull-Labrador mix.

Park18

Blue knew that Lilly was afraid and seemed to do all the right things to build her confidence.

Park14

Amazing behavioral results regardless of breed, size and age.

Lilly is pretty much a totally different dog now and is a lot calmer and out-going, not so edgy. After working with David Baron and Superdog, Lilly is not so afraid of men anymore and even has warmed-up to Monica’s boyfriend.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dog Aggression

DOG AGGRESSION TRAINING

Dog AggressionDOG AGGRESSION TRAINERS

This Pit Bull was shot by a police officer after escaping from the yard.

God bless anyone who would spend over $30,000 to keep their dog alive.

It takes exceptional character and resolve to stand up to friends and family who say that your dog needs to die, much less an enraged community and the authorities.

AG12

The first thing you need to do, whether your dog is aggressive or not, is to get your dog under control.

This means that if your dog is not under voice control, you need to have your dog on a leash or locked up in an appropriate and secure enclosure.

Dealing with Dog Aggression can best be solved by contacting a Professional dog trainer. Dog Trainers are a bargain compared to plastic surgeons and horrible psychological trauma.

AG9

The second thing you need to do if you own a dog, whether it is aggressive or not, is to manage the dog correctly so you don’t have problems in the first place.

Management means you train your dog regardless of what breed it is before it becomes aggressive.

Management also means being honest about the outlook and odds of the potential consequences of allowing certain dogs to interract with children.

Some people think the odds with Russian Roulette are good because the gun only has one bullet in it.

On the contrary, a professionally trained dog is like a police officer with a loaded gun protecting the children.

AG10

People who do the right things in life will always be able to look their children in the eye.

The safety of the dog, neighbors, children and other animals are important considerations. Not training a dog is often a death sentence, especially if it is a bully breed or if there are children involved.

The authorities, veterinarians, and most dog trainers and behaviorists will tell you your dog needs to die if there is any aggression. They will use the rhetorical argument against you, “What if it was a child, or what if it rips the little girl’s face off next time?”

Superdog has chosen to err on the side of life. We believe 99.9% of dogs that have shown aggression can be trained and/or re-homed, and don’t need to die to protect society.

AG8

Almost every dog on this website was aggressive. Don’t listen to people who tell you to kill your family dog.

Call Superdog when veterinarians, and other dog trainers and behaviorists tell you that your dog can’t be trained.

AG14

If you have a multiple-dog household, you especially need to manage your dogs correctly to prevent fighting. We recommend that you feed your dogs in the order of their dominance in the pack.

However, if a dog is pathologically dominant, we often feed that dog last during the initial training periodAG13

Home lessons work great 99% of the time and are very affordable.

dog bite image

Some people think they can innoculate themselves against dog aggression by owning a small dog.

Everyone knows small dogs are never aggressive and are always good with seniors and children.

AG6

Superdog’s program is not nebulous and has objective training benchmarks :

1) The dog will go 6 to 10 feet away and disengage contact,

2) The dog will hold a “Down-Stay” for 30 minutes to an hour, and

3) The dog will “Heel” with the nose behind your leg and will even walk 3 to 6 feet back if asked.

There is not going to be significant Obedience or behavior problem solving if your dog won’t do these three things. There is no in-between, either the dog does these or not.

If you can’t put your dog on “Stay” and watch television for an hour, and get your dog to walk behind you–you can forget about controlling aggression or off-leash obedience.

a12 (2)

Superdog’s behavioral training program is not as much about commands as it is Behavior Modification.

Superdog focuses more on things like where the dogs sleep, where they eat, what they eat, the order they eat in, how much they are inside and out, how they are introduced to people, how much they are petted, how they are petted, how they play, when they play, being able to stop unwanted playing or barking, teaching dogs to focus and be calm.

The Superdog program is primarily about improving the quality of interractions and temperament.

Either the dog training works or it doesn’t.

aggressive border collie image

Someone has many photos of dogs they trained–or they don’t.

Dale14

Maybe another dog trainer has more experience and success training aggressive dogs–and even charges less?

a7

Superdog’s Philosophical Axiom is that all good dog trainers and behaviorists should have many photos of aggressive dogs that they successfully trained.

Dale15

Superdog’s method is geared toward getting your dog to do things for the right reasons and is not based on rewards or punishments, but instead on you having a relationship with your dog that is loving, kind and fair.

Violence, aggression, shock collars and dog training with food often makes dogs even more aggressive, dangerous and unpredictable.

Cur5

If you call most dog trainers and behaviorists with an aggressive dog, like how most of the ones on this web site were, they will tell you your dog can’t be trained and needs to be destroyed—after taking hundreds of dollars for an “evaluation.”

THERE IS ANOTHER OPTION AVAILABLE

Superdog will do everything we can to keep your dog alive if you are on-board for saving your dog’s life.

We will come to your house and show you how to keep your dog alive, or we can take your dog to our ranch and he can live out his life here, or we will re-home the dog for you, if you really cannot keep him anymore. We will love him and care for him until he is trained or until someone comes along who wants him.

Dale18

The best training method is the one that actually works.

The dogs’ eyes and faces tell the Superdog story.

RELATIONSHIP-BASED OBEDIENCE

Dog Behavior Problem Solving

Dog Behavior Problem Solving

Dogs in the wild are pack animals and live in well-organized hunting groups called packs.

Sometimes people bring dogs to their home and forget to tell their dog that he or she is not the pack leader.

Living with dominant dogs can be a real challenge, especially if your dog starts treating you like a dog.  Many people are surprised when their dog starts treating their other dog like a dog too.

The camera used to shoot these photographs can shoot 6.5 frames per second. Dog trainers need cameras that are fast because Jack Russell Terriers don’t waste any time when there is a diver down.

Finn3

Finn goes under water for about 20 seconds.

Finn6

The Jack Russell “Henry” is very concerned about “Finn” the Labrador being under water.

Finn4

“Archie” the Border Collie just cares about the ball.

Finn5

Henry the Jack Russell lifeguard to the rescue. He’s a legend in his own mind, a true action hero.

Finn7

Henry dives in to rescue the big dog.

Finn8

“Hold on Finn, I’ll save you,” exclaims Henry.

Finn9

“Come to the shore now, friend!”

Finn10

“I said, get out of the spa now buddy!”

Finn11

“You need to start listening Finn.”

Finn12

“I’m not going to tell you a million times.”

Finn13

“The lady and the kids also need to do what I insist.”

Finn14

“I’m such a studmuffin.”

Finn15

Actually Henry cares for the other dogs and feels he needs to keep them safe. He threw the ball in the spa to make the other dogs fetch it.

Finn16

Finn the Lab is the new guy here at DogAnswers Ranch and Henry has taken it upon himself to mentor and look after Finn.

Finn17

Finn and Henry hang out most of the day and go everywhere in the yard together.

Finn18

Both dogs are getting what they need and are happy to have a friend.

Finn19

Finn the Lab is a great dog too. He understands that Henry is concerned and likes having a strong leader like the Jack Russell looking out for him.

All the dogs know what their role is and what the others expect of them.

Finn20

And this is what you can expect at your house with your dog(s).

Finn21

Amazing behavioral results regardless of size and age.
