the leading organization in the world dedicated to the
welfare of the Pit Bull.
Among our different activities, we carry out extensive
research on the best ways of training, taking care of
and maintaining your Pit Bull.
Over the next few days, we are going to send you dozens

These techniques have been thoroughly tested and
researched by the Pit Bull Training Institute - so,

well-trained and perfectly obedient Pit Bull!
The techniques mentioned in this course will generally

only to a puppy or only to an adult Pit Bull, we have
mentioned that before discussing the technique.
In this course, you will discover tips for
* Housebreaking your Pit Bull
* Training your Pit Bull & making it obedient
* Teaching the basic commands to your Pit Bull
* Taking care of the diet of your Pit Bull
* Stopping your Pit Bull from barking and biting
and a lot, lot more!
So, without wasting any more time, let's begin with
today's topic - which is all about housebreaking your
If done properly, housebreaking your Pit Bull does not
have to be as much of a hassle as some owners make it
Your Pit Bull is a creature of habit. If it is taught
where you want it to eliminate, and you control its
food and water intake to regulate when it will
eliminate, you will have a happy relationship
relatively free of accidents.
The biggest mistake made by Pit Bull owners is
inconsistency. It is important that you first choose
the method of housebreaking appropriate for you and
your pet and secondly stick with it. We know of many
Pit Bull owners who are impatient or inconsistent when
housebreaking their pets. The end result is a pet that
is never fully housebroken.
So, remember the three P's - persistence, patience and
praise, and you are guaranteed success.
Here are the 3 methods you can use to housetrain your
i) The Paper Method - The paper method seems to work
better with a puppy than with an adult Pit Bull,
although it can be used on both.
To begin housetraining your pup with the paper method,
first you must choose a ******** where your puppy will
be staying until housetrained.
Make sure the room is puppy proofed and that
elimination on the floor in this area will not cause
permanent damage to your home.
A bathroom or small kitchen is usually a good place for
Once you have chosen an area, cover the entire floor
If you have a young puppy, it will eliminate much more
often than when it is older. So, just be prepared for
many messes in the beginning.
In the beginning, it is important to replace the paper
as soon as possible after the elimination has occurred.
This helps your puppy establish the area as its own,
and it will help you get a better idea of where it
favors doing its business.
As your puppy eliminates throughout the day, it may go
in several different areas of the room.
But, as it gets a little more used to its room, it will
choose a certain area where it prefers to eliminate.
When its preferred area for elimination is established,
begin removing the paper from the rest of the room,
only covering the area it uses.
Make sure you leave its papered area large enough so
that it does not miss the paper.
If it misses the paper, the area is too small and you
need to add more paper.
When it uses its papered area, praise it. The more
your puppy associates a reward with its choice of the
paper instead of the linoleum, the quicker your puppy
will be trained.
After it has established that it will use the papered
area instead of the floor, begin moving the paper
towards the area (presumably somewhere outside your
house) where you want it to go when fully trained.
The paper should only be moved a little at a time
towards this ********. If moving the paper confuses
your puppy, you may only be able to move about one inch
per day, until the paper reaches its final destination.
Once your puppy understands that it is to eliminate
only on the paper, and you have been able to move
towards the area where it will eventually go outside,
monitoring its habits will be much easier.
Once the paper is completely removed, it will go to
that area automatically and sniff or turn circles,
letting you know it has to go out.
Crate Training - Crate training can be used on both a
puppy and an adult Pit Bull and is probably the most
effective and efficient way to housetrain your pet.
No Pit Bull will want to eliminate in a place it
considers to be its own and therefore, unless left in
its crate for too long, it will not eliminate in its
Once every hour, place your Pit Bull on a leash and
walk it in the area where you want it to go potty.
If it has not gone in five minutes, return it to its
crate for another hour.
After another hour goes by, the dog that did not go
last time will most likely go this time.
When it does go, be sure and praise it profusely and
return it to its crate. The excitement in your voice
when you are praising it will help it better
understand that THIS is the place you want it to go.
Once that is established, it will do its best to make
you happy by eliminating in its designated area.
Once you feel it understands where it is to go to
potty, you may lessen its crate time, and begin opening
up its area to more than just its crate.
Be sure and open up its area a little at a time so it
clearly establishes the larger area as "its area",
increasing the desire to keep its area clean.
Eventually, you will be able to open up your entire
home, but this is only after a lot of time has been
spent training and proof that it understands.
Litter Pan Method - This method will have the best
chance of success with an young puppy but an older
Pit Bull may be able to litter train with success as
Similar to paper training, litter box training begins
in a confined area such as a bathroom or kitchen.
Although you may be able to use a traditional cat
litter box for this purpose, pet supply stores do sell
doggy litter boxes. They are shaped a little different
and are a bit larger than the traditional kitty box.
Also available are special litters and papers that
should eventually be used in the box.
Like paper training, the beginning stages have paper
lining the entire floor of the room. You continually
change any soiled paper until the puppy chooses a place
on the floor it likes to eliminate.
Once the puppy has eliminated in an area about the size
of a litter pan for approximately two weeks, place a
litter pan on the floor and paper inside the litter
When it goes and does its business inside the litter
box, make sure to praise it profusely. It has got to
establish this is the correct behavior before it will
be comfortable with it.
Once it is used to the litter box with the paper, you
may begin the change to doggy litter if desired. As
time goes on, you may add additional litter until
eventually the paper is gone and only litter remains.
If you choose this method, you must clean the litter
box every time your Pit Bull eliminates. It will not
go in a dirty box. Failure to consistently clean the
litter box will result in your puppy reverting back to
Follow any of the above 3 methods consistently, and you
should soon have a fully house-trained Pit Bull!
