    In my quest to become a great dog owner and train Achilles to be couragous and protective while being playful and great with children I try to start my trainning with easy things like: Sit, stay and teaching him to walk with me and not walk me. LOL!:cool: And I must say that it's more difficult than it seems. :eek:!!! So to all of you who have successfully trained your pits, Please... Help! hahahaha. SERIOUSLY!

    What can I do to teach him that when we go for a walk he is to stay by my side and not pull my down the street or try to run off like he's crazy?

    What can I do to teach him not to jump on me everytime that i come around him and teach him to sit and stay?

    To all of you that take the time to read this and give advice, Thank you a million times over!


    Sincerely,
    Josh

    Well one thing you can do is every time he starts to pull in one direction give him a leash correction turn and go the opposite way. Hell learn that you dictate where you go not him. It might make for longer walks but it helps. I also did this thing where I wouldnt budge if Atticus started pulling. He would eventually sit and then we would resue the walk. Now when he feels hes pulling hell immediately stop and sit. Unless, of course, a squirrel or rabbit happen by then it gets a little tougher. Teaching heel is good to. There are tons of threads on the training section, just use the search tool.

    Thanks! Yeah, I have been doing using that method where if he walks in one direction I will walk the other way and i can see that it helps a little but I guess in order to get better results I need to go for longer walks. I will give that a try and see how it works out. Thanks again for the helpful advise. I got a lot of good information off the threads in the trainning and behavior forum.
