When it comes to handling this breed as I have for 17 years, I've seen it all. First and foremost we don't use any negative training devices or methods. A true trainer uses the best tool of all: his/her mind. But in order to do that, a good and effective trainer must have the proper equipment to make the dog successful, safe and happy. This past year I was introduced to Ray Allen's equipment, specifically the Ram-Tech leashes/leads. The feel of real leather and the clasps are hardcore strong yet not so bulky that they get in the way or are too heavy for the dog. I absolutely love them. They are a MUST for all Pit Bull and Bully owners!
