puppy pit bulls

You have taken on a very big commiment . One that should not be taken lightly. Your puppy Pitbull is dependent on you for everything. To ensure a well behaved adult Pitbull and a rewarding relationship, you are responsible for a safe and loving home, food, water, veterinary care, exercise and training. It is no big secret that without proper training, your cute little puppy Pitbull will grow up to be a threat to everyone that comes in contact with it, and a problem for you and your neighbors.
The biggest threat to your puppy Pitbull may not be heartworms, getting ran over by a car by a car, or distemper. The biggest threat to many puppy Pitbulls is that their owners know nothing about puppy Pitbull behavior’s or how to effectively communicate with it. This lack of education leads to more puppy Pitbulls being euthanized than any other breed. After all, how many well behaved puppy Pitbulls are turned over to animal shelters? It is the ones with “behavior problems” that end up homeless. Situations that could have been avoided or corrected with proper training.
Understanding your puppy Pitbull behavior from its perspective and learning to communicate to it at its level will helps. It is only natural for us to humanize our pets, that’s to say, we impart our emotions on to them. Your puppy Pitbull is a bully bred, instinct driven, survival oriented animal, it is going to do bully things. Without proper training, those “bully things” that are so natural for your puppy Pitbull can become “big problems.”

Yes, he is a cute little puppy Pitbull now, but do not forget a few short months he will have doubled in size and weight, have more strength and powerful jaws. Set the rules and boundaries you’ll expect your puppy Pitbull to live by for the rest of your lives together, enforce them, and ONLY reinforce behaviors you want.

When it comes to raising a puppy Pitbull, Being a good leader is the key. Good leadership simply means training your puppy Pitbull to do right. Good leadership will help to prevent problems from developing. In other words, proaction is far less costly than reaction. Punishing an adolescent Pitbull for jumping up or leash pulling behavior, for example, is not fun for you or the dog, is most unfair. These and other types of problems can be taken care of when their still puppies.
Think of the things that you do not want your adult Pitbull dog to do, such as jump-up on people, chase things, pull on the leash, bark excessively DO NOT allow these behaviors. Make sure everyone that will meet your puppy Pitbull knows and understands your rules! This will help to maintain consistency in enforcing the rules. So, when your puppy jumps up on someone, they’ll know how to handle it reinforcing that behavior.

Oh yeah! The puppy Pitbull will chew. Puppy Pitbulls learn about their by smelling and putting things into their mouths. As your puppy starts to teethe, their need to chew will be greatly increased. Supervise and provide your puppy with some toys and teach that those are the best things to chew on; not your furniture, clothes or hands! Destructive chewing need not become an issue if initial chewing is properly managed!

Think of all the things your puppy Pitbull is going to be exposed to during the course of its life. He will most likely come into contact with other dogs, cats, birds, not to mention people.
Socialization is the exercise of gradually exposing your puppy Pitbull to other animals. By learning how to interact with cats, birds, humans, etc., the socialized puppy Pitbull develops communication skills which enable it to recognize the intentions of others. However, until your puppy has been fully examinied and vaccinated by a vet, it should not be exposed to other dogs.
