Despite their recent reputation for being vicious and unpredictable, Pit Bulls are quite the opposite. In fact, these amazing dogs are highly intelligent, very protective, and great family dogs. They are easily trained and love to show off how smart they are. While most people want to train their Bullies not to bark, there is nothing wrong with teaching him to bark on command or to let you know about something important. Most Bullies are relatively quiet by nature, so teaching your pup to bark can be a little on the challenging side.
The trick here is that you are taking something that comes naturally to your Pittie and controlling it. In other words, your pup knows how to bark and may at times want to bark for what might seem like no good reason at all. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to train your dog to bark on command. You can use this same training to stop your dog from barking at any other time. This way he should only bark when you let him, or there is an emergency of some type such as an intruder.
Before you try to train your four-legged friend to bark on command, he should have already mastered the four basic commands, 'sit', 'stay', 'come', and 'down'. This shows him who's in charge and at the same time establishes a bond between the two of you. You need a few supplies to make the training sessions go easier and more successfully. These include:
The only other things you need to successfully train your dog to bark are plenty of time for several short training sessions daily and the patience to keep working with your pup until he masters this skill.
