American Staffordshire Terrier Question

Obedience Training and Group Training


Macie is 14 months old and has finished obedience training. Training is perfect around the home but how do I get her to obey outside of our property line? She seems to be afraid of everything: people, traffic, etc. She gets other very well with my Boston Terrier and Yellow Lab. Macie was 7 weeks old and grew up with other two.

Macie is WAY too young to have left her mother. So she has not learned how to cope with new situations, as she would learn this from her mother and siblings. Use your other dogs to help her become comfortable with new situations. Using positive reinforcement only to coax your puppy into new situations. Take baby steps and make sure you do not scare her. She is in her fear stage right now up until she is 11 weeks old and if she is scared enough, she can hold onto that fear for the rest of her life.
