PitBulls/ My dog

Dear world,


A picture of Penny the second day we had her.
I got a puppy! She is a girl and she is named penny. When we got her on Christmas she was seven weeks old. she was so small. She is a Pit bull mix.

Now in this video (right side) Penny has grown
 so much. The older she gets the more spot
come to be on her. She is a energetic little puppy.
 Day by day play, eat, sleep, play, eat, sleep, play,
 play, play.  She loves to climb the couch and look                    
 on the other side of it. She barks and that means                  
she would like to go to the other side. Sometimes                
she falls down but when she does a pillow is there
to catch her at the perfect time. Penny is a huge puppy right now she is about 6 months old and about full grown and she love to get wet and she can also
 go down slides without help.

Then what you want to do is move their body to the trick you want them to do then you do then you say the command or a hand gesture you want (or you can add both), when their body is in that position you say or do the command give them a treat. When they have done that things on their own keep giving them treat when they do it.  In this paragraph you have learned about how to train your Pit bull.
