Baxter | Pit Bull | Bakersfield, Ca. | In Training
Updated: Aug 29
Baxter is an almost 5 year old Pit Bull who is only comfortable enough to be calm around the people he knows. Baxter is very reactive to all animals of all sizes and will often aggressively pull on the leash causing his mom to be pulled. They are not able to have comfortable walks which is what one of the goals during training will be. Baxter's mom wants to be able to pass anyone whether it is human or an animal without baxter wanting to chase after them.
Baxter did so great with Aileen he seems to be warming up to her and wanting to easily come when called.
Baxter is doing great with seeing dogs in his surroundings and doing much better with holding the sit command for a longer period of time.
Food manners with cat distraction
Baxter has been working great without a muzzle but we were in a park with distractions so we took precautions
Baxter has been improving on his down command, less fighting and no more growing 😅. We love him ❤
Baxter freaked out a little today while we were moving forward from a stop light when he heard a motorcycle. He is okay and did amazing at the park but he did break through the crate door.
Baxter has grown so much more trust with us in the last few days which is helping to improve his recall
Place command with Baxter at Acton park.
This was a big step for both alibi and baxter, two dogs who can easily escalate to aggression can now calmly sit next to each other. Rehabilitation is going great 👍🏼
