Pitbulls sometimes grow depended on their owner. So they are easy to train. They love to please their master by learning new tricks. They respond well to praise and tasty rewards. No pull leashes ever, but please let them know who's boss in a nice way. Pitbulls do not make good guard dogs because they can turn aggressive to everyone including there own family. Pitbulls are thought to be very mean but they are only if their owners want them to be, so a being a guard dog isn't very good. You should give them a little area to call their own like a crate. Crates aren't for timeouts or punishment. Give them 30-45 vigorous minutes of exersize. Let them be around other people and other dogs it helps them to be nicer. Teach them who's good and who's bad so they won't attack anyone there not supposed to. You need to be very nice to them and not hit them or it might make them aggressive. Dogs love Beggin' Strips, Milk-bones, Dog Biscuits, and Snausages for excellent behavior treats. I have a dog at my house so I know. Those are his favorite treats.
