I'm sorry to hear that you are no longer interested in training your dogs with me.
I am urging you to reconsider that decision because, like I told you after my initial evaluation, pit bull owners are held to much higher standards by the public.
I do believe that Faust is a very easy going dog and will not be a problem, but your other dog has the potential to become very agressive and dangerous. I could see that in the way he interacted with me and I am certain that he will get worse in the future.
Faust and your other dog need heavy socialization with other dogs and people if you ever hope to get them certified. I have trained my own pit bulls at dog parks for years and I have had excellent results as you can see in my videos.
I recommended boot camp at my facility because your older dog needs to start over from the beginning. You saw yourself how he reacted to me, there was no obedience when I gave him a command. That is not acceptable in a pit bull.
At the very least you should consider rehoming him to a better suited and pit bull knowledgeable home, if you are not willing to train him properly or be much stricter in your dealings with him. The way he pawed at you and kept vocalizing at you is a concern since it shows a great lack of respect for you on his part.
Dogs like that are not above biting their owners or other people when they feel challenged in any way. Please keep that in mind at all times for your own safety.
He is a very big dog, and he is a very strong dog. He seems to be very stubborn and gets overly excited, which I also observed during my evaluation. You may not be the 'right' person to handle a dog like that, but I don't mean this personal in any way. Some pit bulls need harsher training and harder handling then others to teach them how to fit in and you yourself seem very soft spoken and mild mannered which can be counter productive when you have a strong willed pit bull.
Faust is very social and had no problems with me at all. Your other guy was very skittish and seems overly dependent on you. He was too concerned with what you wanted him to do when I asked him to perform some basic obedience and that is a red flag in this breed. My own pit bulls are trained to be obedient for anyone at any time, no matter what.
I can accomplish the same thing with your dogs if I have the opportunity to train them at my house.
If you change your mind please don't hesitate to contact me.
Run away. Do not pass go, do not collect $200. Just run as far away as possible.
