    There is no breed called a pitbull - almost all of them are bully types, mixed with something else. Many of those "something else" dogs can be hard to train. That means you need to work harder and longer - there is no special secret. The dog isn't stubborn so much as it is necessary for you to figure out what motivates that dog. And more exercise! A tired dog is less likely to be distracted. In this case, you need help. Contact your vet for the name of a good trainer - someone you found on the internet may or may not be qualified, and may or may not be very good. The trainer will watch you with your dog, and teach YOU how to train the dog. It involves repetition, and effort. Many of the difficult dogs just need another approach and a good trainer will find that for you. You have a large and powerful dog that is going to be a liablity for you if you don't get him properly trained, and I'm sure you know that.

    When you get 'stubborn' you have to change your approach to training. Make them think what you want, was their idea!!

    It's too much dog for you, for whatever reason. Not a good match. Sell it or give it away.

    The best remedy for a pit bull is a bullet to the head.

    You consult a trainer to help you identify what you're doing wrong and how to fix it

    Um what bully breed mutt ISN'T stubborn? They're ill bred mutts that are often inbred by the horrible people breeding them.

    What exactly is it you're having issues with? Pretty generic question.

    Start by not buying a breed you can't spell. It's pit bull.

    Hire a trainer.

      There is no breed called the pit bull, either, so your correction is sort of pointless here.

    Yeah, don't ever use aggression.
