How to Control Staffordshire Bull Terriers
By: Jake Kennedy
The difference between a human and an untrained dog is that humans have self control and know how to walk away from an argument. The problem with untrained dogs is that they will continue to attack unless you are able to break them apart from the other dog. This article will tell you how to control Staffordshire Bull Terriers.
If you love dogs you probably do not want your dog to get in a fight and you especially do not want them to get injured. The best way to prevent this from happening is to train them early to take away their aggressive side. Below are some tips to help you control Staffordshire Bull Terriers:
1. If you are looking to buy more than one bull terrier you are able to do that with two females safely. However, you should never buy two males unless you will be able to keep them separated from each other. Males will have arguments that will lead to them attacking each other.
2. Another plus about buying female bull terriers is that they are far less aggressive than the males.
3. Never let your dog off the leash unless you have complete control over them. If you let your dog off his/her leash before you have complete control over them they can go and run towards other dogs, or worse, small children.
Typically the Staffordshire breeds of bull terriers are very good with kids, but they are extremely powerful and could easily knock a child down. Also, a child's screams could make the dog upset which could cause it to react in a negative way. Even if the dog does not attack the child the parents could see the dog as being aggressive towards their child which is not a good thing for you.
4. Although it is not guaranteed to work, some dogs are less aggressive when they have been neutered.
5. If you are going to have more than one dog it is important that you feed them at them together at the same time. You need them to get use to having their own food and not been trying to take the other dogs. You MUST be there during the feeding because there will be fights that occur that you will need to break up.
Bull terriers are very responsive dogs and with the proper training you will be able to gain control over their nature. Using these tips to help you control Staffordshire Bull Terriers, you should be able to control your dog in no time.
