Pit Bulls get a bad rap unfortunately. These dogs were bred as fighting dogs, and the media has portrayed them as aggressive.
While some pit bulls have been associated with severe injuries to other dogs and even people, the vast majority of pit bulls are loving family members who just want to please their owners.
Are Pit Bulls Easy to Train?
Pit bulls, like other so-called bully breeds, are naturally stubborn, which can make training them a little more difficult than a breed like a Labrador retriever.
That said, they generally want to please their family members, especially when you have a healthy relationship with them, based on trust and mutual affection. Damaging that bond can make training your pit bull almost impossible.
While it’s true that training your pit bull should start at an early age, older pit bulls are also capable of learning. They might be a little more set in their ways, so you’ll want to have better incentives to get them to learn.
Training your pit bull can be an enjoyable experience for the two of you. Everyone in the family should be on the same page so that your furry friend gets the same message across the board.
