How to Help Pit Bulls – They Need Us to Defend Them!

how to help pit bullsI recently came across Tracey Stewart’s book, Do Unto Animals.  It’s a beautiful, inspiring, informative book about caring for and loving animals – one of the sweetest I’ve ever seen.  Not to mention beautifully (stunningly!) illustrated.  You can read my review of the book HERE.

For the Love of Pit Bulls

In the book, Tracey writes a chapter regarding pit bulls that brought me to tears.  I felt compelled to share it on this website, and to promote the ideas she shares so that more people can learn how to help pet bulls.  I hope you’ll do the same by sharing this article with your friends and on social media.  Here’s Tracey’s article:

“Clearly, certain dogs are more physically powerful than others and can be visually intimidating to some people.  If you choose to share your life with a larger dog, in addition to the extra-large portion of love you’ll get, you need to be prepared to accept an extra-large portion of responsibility.  People may be tolerant of a little dog that is a lot out of control, but often have no tolerance for a larger dog that is even a little out of control.  You owe it to your dog, who by no choice of his own may be judged more harshly than his smaller, less fearsome-looking counterparts, to teach good manners and sociability.  Who knows, perhaps your dog can be an ambassador to change perceptions.

To date, five dogs that would be described by many to be “pit bulls” have joined our family:  Enzo, Shamsky, Monkey, Lil’ Dipper, and Scout.  Each has touch our hearts and enriched our lives profoundly.  I can’t imagine never having had the joy they’ve all given us.

how to help pit bullsMisinformation about this breed abounds.  Here are some facts you may not know and that you can share with others to spread the good word about these dogs that too often are stigmatized without cause.

FACT:  Three breeds of dogs are officially considered pit bull terriers (a mix of bulldog and terrier): Staffordshire bull terriers, American pit bull terriers, and American Staffordshire terriers.  Anything else is not a true pit bull, but rather a mix of some other kind.

FACT:  Experts have found it impossible to accurately assign a breed label or predict future behaviors based solely on a dog’s appearance.

FACT:  In the beginning of the twentieth century, pit bull-type dogs were among the most popular family dogs.  They were even referred to as “nanny” dogs.

FACT:  In the 1980’s, pit bulls became the dog of choice of drug dealers, dogfighters, and gangs.  These people raise dogs in deplorable conditions and purposely incite fear and aggression in them for their own deviant purposes.  The result has been unspeakable injury, suffering and cruelty for canines and humans.

FACT:  The disproportionate number of pit bull types in shelters is more due to irresponsible and prolific breeding than the misconduct of individual dogs.  The large number of these dogs in shelters should not be interpreted as a negative reflection of their adoptability.

FACT:  Media outlets have always salivated over a good fear-instilling animal story.  Some believe that pit bulls became the victim in 1987 when Sports Illustrated published a cover with a snarling American pit bull terrier and the headline, “Beware of This Dog.”  Rolling Stone also published a graphic article about “teenagers, inner-city gangs, violence and the horrific abuse of pit bulls.”  Pit bulls became the new easy breed to plug into the vicious dog story.

FACT:  Many shelters euthanize a dog just for looking like a pit bull either due to their own ignorance or because they think that prejudice will limit the dog’s chances for adoption regardless of the temperament or soundness of the individual dog.”

how to help pit bullsPretty Sad, Don’t You Agree? 

When I read this I pictured a young, male pit bull at the local shelter saying, “You mean I have to die today because of the way I look?  But I’m a good boy!”  This dog likely gives unlimited, unconditional love to humans, most likely behaves well as it is an intelligent breed, and would, I have no doubt, give his life to protect its owner (especially a child).  Tears.  That’s what the misperception and mistreatment of pit bulls creates for me.  Profound sadness, sympathy, and tears.

Ways to Help Pit Bulls

how to help pit bullsTraining

Pit bulls need extra help with training because, as unfair as it is, they have to behave almost perfectly just to be accepted by society.  Sadly, they can’t get away with minor misbehavior or mistakes that every dog breed makes – they tend to be crucified for the smallest infractions.

The best dog training program I know of is The Online Dog Trainer, created by well-respected dog trainer, Daniel Abdelnoor (known as “Doggy Dan”).  His dog training website is by far the best, and fastest growing dog training website available. You can read my review of The Online Dog Trainer HERE.

Here’s a video of Doggy Dan working with Kay, an 18-month-old pit bull.

The best (and maybe only) way to keep your pit bull out of trouble is to make sure that he’s trained so well that he doesn’t misbehave.  Doggy Dan is the best trainer there is.  You can have access to more than 300 videos on his website where you can see Doggy Dan working individually with dogs about every dog behavior issue you can think of.  Doggy Dan offers a 3-day trial of the website for $1.  There is no obligation after that.  So get on the website and look around for 3 days.  I’m sure you’ll be very excited about the things you can teach your dog.

More Ways to Help Pit Bulls

Remember Their History
how to help pit bullsNot that long ago, pit bulls were the preferred nanny dog, and they were often left in charge of young children. One of the most famous pit bulls was Petey, the dog who starred in “Little Rascals” films. There have been a number of famous pit bulls, and they are still one of the top ten most popular breeds in the U.S.

Pit bulls then ended up getting a bad rap when they became the guard dog of choice for drug dealers.  Around the same time, dog fighting re-emerged.  And pit bulls are not the only dogs who have been marked as dangerous over the years.  At various times, German shepherds and Rottweilers were at risk of being outlawed.

These facts alone are strong evidence that it’s not the breed that’s the problem; it’s how they’re treated and used by humans.

Be a Responsible Owner
If you have a pit bull, make sure you have trained him properly, and that he gets enough exercise.  Provide him with boundaries, rules and limitations, and make sure he’s socialized with other dogs, people, and children.

Work Against Breed Specific Legislation (BSL)
Many lawmakers are starting to take another look at Breed Specific Legislation (BSL) and are now working on more sensible laws that focus on the behavior of the owners rather than focusing on the type of dog.

Educate
The best way to counteract fear is education.  Together we can keep pressing forward until, one day, pit bulls are once again seen as the beautiful, lovable best friends they’ve always been.

Get the Word Out

Please do your part in helping to get the word out about pit bulls being misunderstood and unfairly judged.  This book, “I’m a Good Dog,” is a great way to start.  Read it, then pass it along.  Perhaps even purchase a copy to donate to your local library (or several libraries)!  Anything we can do to educate people will help.

I’m a Good Dog: Pit Bulls, America’s Most Beautiful (and Misunderstood) Pet

Filled with inspiring stories and photographs, this heartfelt tribute to the pit bull celebrates one of America’s most popular yet misunderstood dogs.

Perhaps more than any other breed, the pit bull has been dogged by negative stereotypes. In truth, pit bulls are innately wonderful family pets, as capable of love and good deeds as any other type of dog. Setting the record straight, Ken Foster sings the praises of pit bulls in I’m a Good Dog, a gorgeously illustrated, tenderly written tribute to this most misunderstood of canines.

Founder of the Sula Foundation, which promotes responsible pit bull ownership in New Orleans, and the author of two acclaimed books about abandoned dogs, Foster has made it his mission to bring overlooked canines into the limelight. I’m a Good Dog traces the fascinating history of this particularly maligned breed. A century ago, the pit bull was considered a family dog, featured in family photos and trusted as loving companions for children. More recently, pit bulls have been portrayed by the media as stereotypes of everything they are not. Foster shatters that reputation through moving profiles of pit bulls that serve as therapy dogs, athletic heroes, search-and-rescue dogs, and educators, not to mention as loving pets. Foster also profiles many pit bull lovers, from Helen Keller and Dr. Seuss to actor Todd Cerveris, who took his pit bull on tour with him for the musical Spring Awakening.

Proving that there’s much to love and nothing to fear, I’m a Good Dog restores the pit bull to its rightful place as friend, family member, athlete and entertainer.

Dog Massage Therapy Training – Dog Massage Tips and Techniques

Get ready for some dog massage therapy training that your pooch will be more than happy to let you practice on him!

Dog massage is a great way to bond with your dog, it’s extremely therapeutic, and it also helps reduce YOUR stress!

Here are 5 dog massage tips and techniques from Tracey Stewart, author of the book, Do Unto Animals.

Dog Massage Therapy TrainingDog Massage Tip 1: Circle the Shoulders

Gently placing both palms flat on either shoulder, use your finger pads to make small circles with mild pressure. Gradually make the circles bigger, changing directions and varying speeds.

Dog Massage Tip 2: Rub the Forehead

With your palm facing down and four fingers together and flat, rub your dog’s forehead from the top of the head to the tip of the nose. Occasionally make small circles with your finger pads and rub up and down with light pressure.

Dog Massage Tip 3: Gently Tug at the Scruff

Grasp the loose skin on the scruff of your dog’s neck or on other loose, furry areas of your dog’s body and slowly squeeze your fingers and thumbs together while gently pulling upward. Try to alternate left and right hands, lifting the left up as the right lowers, and vice versa. Be careful not to pinch the skin at the end of the pull.

Dog Massage Tip 4: Nestle the Base of the Ear

Ball your fist and use your knuckles to rub small, gentle circles at the base of your dog’s ear, just below the opening. Keep your palm facing down and use light pressure. A dog’s ears are sensitive, so pay attention to the pressure and move slowly.

Dog Massage Tip 5: Stroke the Chest

Bring your hands to your dog’s chest and wait for him to lie down on his side or back. With your fingers in a loose claw shape, use your fingertips to lightly scratch along the chest and under the armpits in a circular pattern. If your dog enjoys this, try gradually adding pressure and speed.

Note: Only give your dog a massage if she is relaxed and receptive. Avoid massaging a sick animal (unless recommended by your veterinarian), and do not massage an animal in place of veterinary care.

These dog massage tips are taken from Tracey Stewart’s book,  Do Unto Animals (Artisan Books).

Is It Too Late to Train My Dog? You CAN Teach An Old Dog New Tricks

Today I’d like to clear something up.  It’s that myth that’s been talked about for years…the myth that, “You can’t teach an old dog new tricks.”

This isn’t true!

That would be like saying you can’t teach an elderly man or woman new things – older people can learn, and so can older dogs.  The truth is we can all learn, and we can all change.  People and dogs alike.

Is It Too Late to Train My Dog?Is It Too Late to Train My Dog

If you’re reading this article, then it’s likely you’re looking for information on changing your older dog’s behavior.  Some dog owners or even dog trainers may say that this is impossible, but professional dog trainer, Doggy Dan knows it’s totally possible.  He’s seen older dogs’ behavior change – quickly and easily – so many times over the years, that in his mind it’s very possible.  In fact, it’s often true that as dogs get older, training can become easier because older dogs don’t have as much energy to misbehave as they did when they were pups!

The Online Dog Trainer, created by well-respected dog trainer, Daniel Abdelnoor (known as “Doggy Dan”), is by far the best, and fastest growing dog training website available. Doggy Dan really is the best online dog trainer.

Check out this video where Doggy Dan personally takes us on a tour of The Online Dog Trainer. Doggy Dan offers a 3-day trial for $1, and in this video he shows you what you’ll be able to see immediately upon signing up!

Read my review of the online dog trainer HERE

Is It Too Late to Train My DogTricks Doggy Dan Will Help You Teach Your Old Dog

This is a list of things that Doggy Dan usually teaches puppies, but you can certainly teach the very same things to older dogs too.  So if you have an older dog with any of the following issues, know that there is hope!  And often, it’s not even difficult.

This list is in order of priority, with #1 being the most important.  We’ll start with #10, then work our way up to the most important, #1.

#10.  Command Training (sit, stay, etc.)

The reason this one is being listed at #10 (or the least priority) is because it’s very easy to teach this later on, once you’ve built a solid foundation of training with your dog.  But for now, start using some simple commands, using treats to help the progress along.  Don’t rush…take it easy.

#9.  Grooming (nail trimming, brushing, inspecting the mouth/teeth).

If your older dog hates any of these things, you can turn it around with a bit of knowledge and patience.  The key thing you have to do prior to trying to teach your dog to tolerate these things is to become the pack leader.  If you are, the dog will trust you with pretty much anything.  We’ll be talking about pack leader training later in this article.  In the meantime, try to make it a positive experience by using treats and praise, and stay calm.

#8.  Recall (getting your dog to come when called).

This is the most important command of all, because it’s a matter of safety.  It could literally mean the difference between life and death for your dog if, for example, he’s running toward a busy street and there’s a car coming, and he won’t come when you call!  One of the tricks to getting your dog to come when you call is to use his name only as a positive experience.  Meaning, don’t use your dog’s name when you’re upset with him for misbehaving.  They have to think that when they hear their name, something good is going to happen (like a treat or affection).  They’ll be more inclined to come when they hear their name if they think something good is coming.

#7.  Socialization (experiencing people and places).

If you want your dog to be able to go places with you and you want them to be comfortable, say, when people come over, then you have to work on his socialization skills.  Starting when their young and remaining calm is the key.  But older dogs can also be made to feel comfortable in situations that are not familiar to them, if your patient, start small, and monitor your dog’s reactions to see how he’s coping.  And again, pack leader training will be important here as well.  If your dog sees you as the pack leader, he’ll have confidence in you no matter his surroundings.

#6.  Home Alone (separating anxiety).

Our dogs would love it if we never left the house (or at least never left the house without them!)  But obviously, that can’t happen.  So it’s important that you take the time to make sure your dog feels comfortable being left home alone.  I hate to annoy you with repetition, but again, the best way to solve separation anxiety is to teach your dog to see you as the pack leader – then he’ll be comfortable with you leaving “the den.”  But it’s also important not to make drama when you leave (no big farewell!), and don’t make a big deal when you come home.  Make it more casual, or “business as usual.”

#5.  Behavior With Other Dogs.

It’s so enjoyable to watch your dog playing with other dogs.  Generally speaking, it’s best to start socializing your dog with other dogs when they’re a puppy.  But you’d be surprised how well an older dog can do when 1) he sees his owner as the pack leader (therefore the decision maker as to whether the other dog is friend or foe), and 2) if you are patient and stay aware of how your dog (and the other dog) are reacting.  If your dog is aggressive with other dogs, then the pack leader training is even more crucial.

#4.  Biting or Mouthing.

This is fairly easy to stop when you know how.  For example, rather than shouting, “No!” when your dog is biting or mouthing you (that only increases the energy to the situation), it’s better to put them in time-out for a few minutes.  They won’t like that consequence and after a few tries, they’ll get the hint that biting and mouthing gets them outed!

#3.  Calming Your Dog.

It’s important to have a dog who doesn’t over react to situations.  If they are overly excited, emotional or stressed, it’s hard to train them.  So developing the ability to calm your dog is important.  This starts in the house, then expands to when you’re outdoors or away from home with them.  Remember that your dog looks to you for guidance (especially if he sees you as the pack leader).  So if you want him to remain calm, then you have to be calm.

#2.  Potty Training.

If your dog is older than six months and still peeing in the house, it’s likely he is “marking.”  Doggy Dan covers this, and other possible difficulties with toilet training, on the website.

#1.  Becoming the Pack Leader!

I know.  I’ve mentioned this so many times now that you’re not surprised this is the #1 priority in dog training!  Establishing clear leadership with your dog is truly the most important requirement of successful dog training.  If your dog does not see you as the pack leader, then every single thing you ever try to do with or teach your dog becomes way harder than it has to be.  This is the thing Doggy Dan focuses on most when he does home visits and one-on-one consultations with his clients, whether they have a brand new puppy, an older dog, or a dog with serious behavior issues.

When you make being the pack leader the foundation of your relationship with your dog, everything else falls into place. Without it, you’re on shaky ground and probably experiencing a whole list of issues with your dog.

Is It Too Late to Train My DogGet Help from Doggy Dan!

Inside Doggy Dan’s website, The Online Dog Trainer, you’ll find the videos Doggy Dan has put together to show you exactly how to put this training into place.  All of the topics listed in this article are covered, and lots (lots!) more, including footage of Doggy Dan training dogs during his live consultations.

So if you want to know what to do next to start teaching your old dog new tricks, then look no further.  Doggy Dan will show you how!  It only costs $1 to browse through Doggy Dan’s website and watch videos for 3 whole days.  Isn’t it worth it to at least check it out?

It’s Never Too Late

So yes, you most certainly can train an older dog.  And the sooner you get started, the better.  So if you need help improving your older dog’s behavior, sign up for the $1 three-day trial of Doggy Dan’s dog training website.  I promise you’ll end up being a much better dog owner!  Not only will you be able to train your dog quickly and easily, in a loving and kind manner, but you’ll also be building an even more meaningful relationship with your dog, full of mutual love and respect.  They’re so worth it!  Debra

Do Unto Animals – A Guide to How Animals Live and Making Their Lives Better

Do Unto Animals

A Friendly Guide to How Animals Live and How We Can Make Their Lives Better

By Tracey Stewart

#1 New York Times bestseller and USA Today bestseller

review of do unto animalsThe more we know about animals, the better we can care for them, and the better their lives, and ours, will be. Former animal advocate and veterinary technician, Tracey Stewart, understands this better than most—and she’s on a mission to change how we interact with animals. Through hundreds of stunning illustrations, a few homemade projects, and her knowledgeable, humorous voice, Stewart provides insight into the secret lives of animals and the kindest ways to live alongside them. At home, she shows readers how to speak “dog-ese” and “cat-ese” and how to “virtually adopt” an animal. In the backyard, we learn about dealing kindly with pesky moles, building bee houses,  and creative ways to bird-watch. And on the farm, Stewart teaches us what we can do to help all farm animals lead a better life.  Part memoir of her life with animals, part practical guide, and part testament to the power of giving back, Do Unto Animals is a gift for animal lovers of all kinds. It is beautifully illustrated by Lisel Ashlock.  Animals give us so much.  Isn’t it time we give back?

Reviews of Do Unto Animals

“Charming. . . . A memoir and how-to about enriching the world of the creatures in your life, whether they be dogs, cats, or the crows in your backyard. . . . The book details basic animal behavior as well as practical humane solutions to common animal-human conflicts (cats scratching furniture, moles destroying your lawn). It also has craft projects for those of us with great intentions and no skills.”
New York Times

“A guide to understanding animals and treating them with respect. . . . While the book is about loving and caring for animals, it also follows Tracey’s path to happiness through animals.”
Gayle King on CBS This Morning

“A one-of-a-kind mix of info, advice, philosophy and hands-on activities.”
Philadelphia Daily News

“Gives readers not only facts and advice, but also smart and caring ways to improve animals’ existences.”
Chicago Tribune

Become Dog Pack Leader – Online Pack Leader Dog Training Course

Hello fellow dog lover!

Professional dog trainer, “Doggy Dan,” has developed an online dog training website called, The Online Dog Trainer, where he has more than 300 dog training videos showing him actually working with dogs on every dog behavior issue you can think of.

Doggy Dan has just come out with his new video, “The Foundation of Your Dog Training,” which shows you the missing link in your dog training – being the pack leader.  Until you have applied the pack leader approach to your dog, you haven’t even really started dog training! Doggy Dan’s website has a full video course, “Become Dog Pack Leader – Online Pack Leader Dog Training Course.”  Check out the video:

Read My Review

You can read my detailed review of The Online Dog Trainer HERE.

Are You Frustrated?

Do you get frustrated that all of your efforts to train your dog seem to fail?  Professional dog trainer, Doggy Dan, knows exactly where you’re coming from because he works with people just like you every day.  Part of his job as a dog trainer and behaviorist is to visit people in their homes and hear about how difficult they find it to train their dog, often spending months or even years and possibly hundreds of dollars on dog training classes – only to realize it’s just not working.

It’s Not Your Fault!

But is really isn’t their fault.  You see, the real reason why their training never works is because they’ve never been shown the foundation to success in dog training, which is mastering leadership.

Now, if you’re reading this thinking, “I know, I know, I’ve got to be the pack leader, but nobody will ever show me how!,” then relax – because today I’m delighted to share with you Doggy Dan’s dog training website, The Online Dog Trainer.  Inside this website is a course called, “Become the Pack Leader,” and the information contained in the course is the very same information Doggy Dan shares with people in their homes for hundreds of dollars!  In fact, the videos contained in the course are actual recordings of real consultations!

Become Dog Pack Leader - Online Pack Leader Dog Training CourseAbout Doggy Dan

Over the last 10 years, Doggy Dan has helped tens of thousands of people stop unwanted dog behaviors, and then go on to develop an amazing bond with their dog that he knows is possible in every situation.  He teaches people that the missing part to solving dog behavior issues is not to do more training, but rather to establish clear leadership.  Becoming the pack leader is the key to stopping pulling on the leash, aggression, jumping up, excessive barking, separation anxiety…the list is endless.  Becoming the pack leader needs to be the foundation of your training because without it, your training is sitting on very thin ice.  And under pressure, ice breaks.

What Makes This Course Different

What makes this course different from so many other dog training programs out there is that Doggy Dan is going to SHOW you how to be a pack leader .  You’ll actually watch him working in live consultations – not setups with pre-trained dogs – and you’ll be able to hear exactly what he says and observe exactly what he does.  You’ll be able to see the amazing results for yourself!

Become Dog Pack Leader - Online Pack Leader Dog Training CourseHow Does the Training Website Work?

Let’s quickly go through how the method works inside the membership site.  You will first get access to the Become the Pack Leader video course.  You’ll see how becoming the pack leader forms the foundation of your dog training, and you’ll be given the 5 Golden Rules for Becoming the Pack Leader.  You will be able to watch Doggy Dan implementing each of the rules with difficult dogs in different situations, and you’ll see how quickly the dogs respond.

Next, you’ll be provided with the tools and techniques that Doggy Dan uses every day to keep dogs calm and under control.  It’s simple but powerful stuff.

Then, Doggy Dan will provide you the training videos you need to solve your specific problem(s).  That’s right – he’ll go through the 34 most common dog and puppy behavior problems and each one is covered with videos of Doggy Dan working with dogs in real-life situations.

But Don’t Take My Word for It!

Here’s what one recent customer had to say about this program:  “This program and Doggy Dan are awesome!  I’m just wishing I had found this sooner and not after 20 plus years as a pet parent.  I’ve been getting incorrect advice from dog professionals for years.  Thank you for finally opening my eyes to what is so obvious to my dogs. – LuAnn”  You can read more testimonials about Doggy Dan HERE.

Become Dog Pack Leader - Online Pack Leader Dog Training CourseWhat is the Price?

Ok, so now you’re probably wondering how much everything that I’ve mentioned here is going to cost.  That’s a fair question!  Doggy Dan’s services as a professional dog trainer start at several hundred dollars per hour.  The reason he created this membership site in the first place is because he wanted EVERYONE to have access to an AFFORDABLE dog training solution.  He wants you to have access to this too, so he makes it simple.

Here’s the deal:  Right now you can grab access to The Online Dog Trainer membership site which includes the Become the Pack Leader video course and all his tools and techniques videos, and all the training videos in the training library for the 34 biggest dog and puppy problems – FOR JUST ONE DOLLAR.  Doggy Dan will give you 3 days to check the site out to it’s a three-day trial for one dollar.  And if you don’t like the site, or the videos, or him, you can cancel during those three days and that’s it!

However, if you love the site and you choose to stay on, then it’s $37 per month and yes, you can cancel anytime! And if you choose to stay on after the three-day trial, you’ll also get personal answers to your individual questions from either Doggy Dan or his expert training team.

Now if you don’t have a dollar to spend with your dog, then this is clearly not for you.  This is for people who actually want to improve their dog’s life as well as their behavior.  It’s for people who want to put a stop to all those dog problems once and for all, and they want to develop that amazing relationship that you still dream of with your dog.
