Holding My Puppy Back?

When I'm trying to train my 6 month old Pit Bull puppy, my nephew is holding him back when I call for him. What is the best way to handle the issue? Should I take his collar off so he can't hold him by it? This is my first Pit Bull and I don't want him to have a bad mind set with a distraction of something like that. I really dislike that he does it, but don't know what would be the best way to go about handling it. I was told someone can help me with this issue before it's too late for the puppy.

I am not exactly sure what you are asking. Are you asking about teaching the stay command? Here are a couple of great videos. The second one is better, but the first one has some good tips too!

Enjoy your new pup! Pit breed or not, they all need lots of love, positive reinforcement and good vet care! Start him off right and wishing you a lifetime of happiness together!

Like when I call him if the puppy is with him or near him he will grab his collar so he can come to me.

I don't understand this question. If this is your dog, why is your nephew telling you how it should be trained? I need more information.

I am a little confused by your question too. Can you tell your nephew not to hold the dog when you call him? You are right to think the dog will be confused if you nephew restrains him when you call him. It sounds like you have a problem with your nephew that needs to be worked out. He needs to be respectful of you when you are working with your dog. If he cant do that perhaps you can find a place to work with the dog where he isnt around.

Thanks for the reply. I'm thinking I will just have to do the training while he isn't around. I just got my nephew 2 months ago and he hasn't had the best raising. He is very disrespectful with a lot of things other then the puppy. Now I'm dealing with the bitting form the puppy and I just seen today where it's coming from.

When my nephew plays with him he don't use a toy like I normally would. I told him today that I'm working on breaking the puppy from bitting and please don't play with him like that anymore.

I agree with the others about training your dog when your nephew isn't around to confuse him. When I had my puppy trained, we also had grade school children. They quickly confused her with too many treats, too long waiting and too many commands in a row. She started to ignore the whole thing. In retrospect, my husband and I should have trained her individually so that she ignored the boys and their commands and focused on us. She is a great dog and very intelligent but at 10 years old, we have given up on official training.

Good luck!
