The key to promoting responsible pit bull-type dog ownership is training and education.

It is as important for the dog as it is for the owner. Pit Bull owners need to understand the negative stereotypes and appropriately respond to educate individuals about your dog.


Consider enrolling your dog in a dog manners class or if they have completed an entry level class, get them Canine Good Citizen certified. This is the first step in having your Pit Bull identified as a paws-a-tive member of the community.

Dog Manners Class

Many dogs adopted from shelters have not been provided training in their previous lives. It is recommended that a basic doggie manners class is attended to help you and your new pet communicate. At the Humane Society they teach attention, walking nicely on a leash, come when called, sit, stay, down, stand, off, drop it, no jumping, leave it, touch and then put them all together into useful real life applications.

 

Canine Good Citizen Certification

The AKC’s Canine Good Citizen (CGC) Program was designed to reward dogs who have good manners at home and in the community. The Canine Good Citizen Program is a two-part program that stresses responsible pet ownership for owners and basic good manners for dogs. All dogs who pass the 10-step CGC test may receive a certificate from the American Kennel Club. To learn more about the program click here.
