NOTE: We are not currently offering training classes, but we do offer a $25 rebate to pit bull owners who complete a basic obedience class with the Louisiana SPCA. For details email firstname.lastname@example.org
Do pit bulls need special training? Of course not! They learn the same way all other breeds of dogs do: they repeat behaviors that are reinforced. So how do we teach them which behaviors we want them to repeat and which behaviors we prefer they not? We use pain-free, reward-based methods that are supported by the science of animal learning and dog behavior, and we add in lots of heart. Reward-based methods (often popularly referred to as positive reinforcement) are fun for your dog and you, and help to strengthen the human-canine bond.
Sure, pits don’t require their own training classes, but it’s more fun that way!
