Like owning any other dog, training is a definite must. Whether you choose to do it yourself or send your pet to a professional canine training school, it is important that you do so. Keep in mind that the younger you start training it, the better and more effective it will be. The great thing about Pitsky dogs is that they are very smart creatures and can take instruction very well. They are quick learners and respond very well to their masters, making it relatively simple to train them. They do have a stubborn streak though, so be sure to address this accordingly by asserting yourself as the pack leader.
