The nature and description of the pit bull terrier, training

The American pit bull terrier is rightly considered the king of fight dogs. The American Pit Bull Terrier is truly an extraordinary dog.

She has steel muscles, an iron grip. She is distinguished by incredible dexterity and courage, which borders on fearlessness. But at the same time he has a very kind heart. In fact, it is a beautiful and very affectionate animal. In relation to a person, a pit bull terrier behaves like a small indoor dog.

Today, when dog fighting is already incompatible with public morality, these dogs are beginning to be used for other purposes more distant from violence, in particular, as bodyguard dogs. And you know what, this is not an easy task, because many pit bull terriers refuse to bite a person. In order to force a dog to cling to the mitten, it is necessary to arouse the predator's instinct in it, to convince it that this is a fascinating game that will harm no one.

Only in this case it is possible to achieve the functions of a bodyguard, and a very reliable one, from the pit bull, because no dog in the world is as distinguished as a pit bull. To bite, as much as possible the pit bull terriers have a mouth worthy of a shark.

When he was a fighting dog, he had to hate other dogs, but by no means people. The most fanatical of dog fighting fans could even kill a dog if it growled at a person. In any case, it was indecent to have a dog that growls at a person because it’s a sign of fear that a pit bull should not have known at all.

Conclusion: The American Pit Bull Terrier is one of the least aggressive dogs in the world in relation to humans. However, like any other dog, he is able to go against his nature in order to make a pleasant host. Therefore, from it, you can make a bodyguard and even a killer dog. But the same can be achieved from a poodle or a Yorkshire terrier. It is also true that it was much easier to achieve this from them, because compared to the bull terrier, these dogs are much less balanced, more nervous and more aggressive towards humans.

Unfortunately I must say that there are enough psychos around. But they do not really want to train killer poodles. Therefore, they prefer to buy puppies of combat breeds. This led to the fact that some zealous ministers and politicians in different countries, unfortunately, made the following conclusion: "If psychos buy combat dogs, it means you need to destroy combat dogs." They propose to adopt a law according to which dogs of some breeds will be castrated and sterilized. First of all, we are talking about the pit bull terrier, the American Staffordshire terrier, the Argentinian Great Dane, the Rottweiler, etc.

This is the same as saying “We will ban football to stop the excesses in the stadiums” or “We will destroy the knives, because from time to time, some men kill their wives with them, instead of cutting the bread”

But back to the history of the origin of the Pit Bull Terrier, which many mistakenly consider a huge or giant dog. This is not true. The fighting dog must be agile and compact. The most suitable copies are those who weigh between 13 and 25 kilograms. Heavier specimens are obtained from crossing with other specimens. Someone may object, - "In general, what kind of breed are we talking about"?

The fact is that the pit bull terrier is not recognized as a breed. In some countries, he is not allowed to participate in exhibitions and other events held by the federation of dog handlers. Exactly. Let it not the real breed, however, somewhere it is recognized. In the US, there are 2 clubs that patronize this breed and register it. This is the Kennel United Club, founded in 1878, as well as the American Dog Breeds Association, founded in 1909.

In fact, the first dog registered as an American Staffordshire Terrier was a pit bull terrier. But the name of the pit bull caused a disgruntled grimace to beauteous citizens, because the word "pit" means a pit for the fight. Thus, the name of the pit bull terrier was not officially recognized. These dogs could only be registered as American Staffordshire terriers.

But it cannot be said that this breed was created by supporters of Starforshirov, and not the pit bulls, because the breed remains so if it does not interbreed with other breeds and is controlled for generations, subjected to tattooing and officially registered in a special book.

Opponents of the pit bulls also give another argument, arguing that they cannot be recognized as a breed, since they do not differ in uniformity. It makes no sense to say that all breeds of dogs, especially those that must combine working qualities and external beauty, include various types. Sometimes these are small differences, and sometimes more significant.

There are functional reasons for this. The natural evolution of each breed is that dogs change their appearance from year to year. Thus, it is absurd to argue that a pit bull terrier is a less pedigree dog than a Siberian husky or German shepherd in terms of its uniformity.

Pit bull terriers are hostile because they are considered to be potentially dangerous dogs, uncontrollable and not amenable to training. Unfortunately, the media contributed to the spread of this opinion, even without knowing which dog it is. Now we will tell a little about it. We have already talked a lot about the potential danger of the pit bull, but we can give you a lot of examples when it is far from the truth.

Refuting the charge of danger of the pit bull, let us pass on a statement about its uncontrollability. Opponents of pit bulls argue that genetically he remains a fighting dog, so it is impossible to train such dogs together, because they do not listen to the trainer's orders, but only rush at each other and tear each other into blood. However, as a trainer with 30 years of experience, I can tell you that this is complete nonsense. Pit bulls are perfectly trained together. It is easier to work with them in a group than with German shepherds.

There is one more erroneous statement, that a pit bull supposedly cannot become a bodyguard, because it does not obey the “Drop it!” Order, if he has grabbed something, he cannot be forced to open his jaws. It turns out that this dog, clutching while playing a ball, is doomed to die of hunger in the arms of him.

But seriously, the American Pit Bull Terrier also lets the victim go on command, as does a boxer or a German shepherd and even better, because deep down he does not believe that a person can be a villain. And after he releases the victim, the pit bull behaves harmlessly, as if nothing had happened.

Pit bull perfectly performs all the commands of training.

But we, of course, do not want to convince you that the American pit bull is a cute, lap dog, because it is not so. He remains an unsurpassed fighter, a bundle of iron muscles that enclose a lion heart. He also remains aggressive towards himself, unless he is taught to communicate at an early age. If he starts to have fun, this fun may seem too fierce to the enemy, even if we are talking about an 80-kilogram German Great Dane.

Pit bull can not just bite. He has an iron grip and if he decides not to open his jaws, he can only be released by pushing a stick between his teeth. There are pit bulls that open their mouths, but they have to be taught this patiently and persistently, resorting to games and rewards, as with other dogs.

The Pit Bull Terrier loves to play and even has a certain sense of humor. He understands jokes, understands when it is necessary to depict a circus dog, although this does not correspond to his natural self-esteem. Well, what if the hostess wants to ride with a friend on the carousel.

His extraordinary dexterity allows him to perform such spectacular tricks as jumping on a tree. A rare dog is able to do such tricks. But this does not mean that the American pit bull does such tricks under duress. Even the one who is badly versed in dogs, will understand that they play and have a good time. Jumping, exercising or grabbing a stick, the pit bull is just having fun and showing its courage just like a child who develops by riding a bicycle or a skateboard.

The task of the parents is not to allow the child to expose himself or others to unnecessary risk. In the same way, the owner’s task is to keep the pit bull within certain limits, although sometimes it is even difficult to imagine what this dog is capable of.

In terms of morphology, the pit bull terrier must remain a fighting dog, not because he needs to be prepared for battle, but because of respect for his origin and the work on breeding that has been done so far. If in the past it was a combat dog, it must retain the physical characteristics of a combat dog, even if it is now used as a room dog, for guarding or participating in agility competitions.

Why exactly pit bull terrier, but not American Staffordshire terrier, neither Doberman, nor mastiff, nor Rottweiler? In fact, there is no answer to this question, and at the same time there are hundreds of them in the sense that each person must choose a dog that most corresponds to his lifestyle, requirements and aesthetic principles. The Pit Bull Terrier is not such a big guard dog like a terrier, for example. But he does not have saliva. It is smaller in size than the other fighting dogs.

This is the perfect indoor dog. And also because the pit bull gets along well with dogs of other breeds. A pit bull even allows another dog to pile up its paws on its head, although a pit bull would easily eat it in battle. He also gets along with cats, very kind to children. And all this for one simple reason - he rushes only at the enemy. With that, who is not an enemy to him, he doesn’t fight and the matter ends. Whether a two-legged or four-legged creature, a pit bull will not pay attention to it if it is not angry.

I often witnessed when dachshunds, Yorkshire terriers, sneeze hua or other breeds of dogs were very angry at the pit bull terrier with their rash behavior. Why did he not tear them in place? Everything is very simple. The owner asked the pit bull not to touch these dogs. We have already talked about this, but we will repeat it once again - for a well-educated and well-trained bull terrier who always got along with a man, the word of the owner is the law.

Therefore, the former dog-killer today has turned into a balanced working dog, which can work quietly in a group and perfectly execute all the commands. Therefore, in the so-called pet therapy, a project has emerged on the use of pit bulls in the rehabilitation of children with problems. In conclusion, we recall that the pit bull terrier is a born athlete. It should always be in great shape. It is not always enough just a rolling lifestyle. Therefore, you can use a variety of simulators, such as a treadmill, which Pit Bull likes so much.

One thing to be remembered is that there are no killer dogs, only killer people. The only fault of a dog is that it loves the wrong person. But if he finds a good bipedal friend who can establish a friendly, trusting relationship with the pit bull, the pit bull will be dangerous only for criminals. For the rest - large or small - it will be affectionate dog, able to give you their friendship and love. And the one who will live with the pit bull will be able to understand the phrase that I once heard from a dog owner. This phrase first causes a smile, and then it seems pure truth - "There are only two breeds of dogs in the world - the pit bull terrier and those that would like to become."
