I have a few picture of a pit bull I am training in the North Orange County area of California. This dog does present some challenges. The first is gaining the dogs trust. Getting this dog to trust me took a little effort. While she is not exactly happy to see me she does tolerate me and is responding to training. You will see in one of the photos she is taking a treat from me. Although you may also notice she’s displaying is a bit of avoidance while getting the treat.

This dog usually shows more avoidance in the house and around its owner than it does when I have her by myself and away from the house. If you have a difficult to train dog give me a call for a free phone evaluation.

  1. great work andrew so many cases have to do with trust.the side body posture and periferial eye is key as inviteing for a greeting and can also try to remove the hat ive had dogs actually fear hats and sun glasses.but i look forward on seeing your progress.thanks for sharing your knowledge and work on educating the public.

    1. Tod good point. When I first met the dog I did try making friends without the hat. It did not make much of a difference. But you are right, sometimes I do need to not wear a hat for a while until the dog trusts me. However, I almost always wear a hat when first meeting a dog. It is part of the temperament evaluation I do when the dog first sees me.
