  Description of Seminar/Conference


If you work with bully breeds, you'll want to attend this webinar on July 23rd presented by Pit Bull specialist/trainer - Jeff Coltenback.

Jeff’s on a mission to change the public’s mind and negative view of his beloved breed – the Pit Bull. Even when Jeff started studying dog training in the 1990’s Pit Bulls were misunderstood. It was at that time that Jeff realized that Pit Bulls would be the primary focus of his life’s purpose.

Now he wants to share his expertise from training, evaluating and working with hundreds of Pit Bull type dogs – work that has crystalized his love and devotion to helping Pit Bulls. One by one on this webinar, he’s going to debunk the myths and negative publicity that Pit Bulls get from the media and elsewhere.
