I’m a new pit owner, so I’ll

Welcome to Pitbulls.org Forums Human Talk Introductions hi :] I’m a new pit owner, so I’ll


I’m a new pit owner, so I’ll have different bits to say about this. 🙂

We, before getting O’Shea, went and walked dogs at a shelter nearby. It’s best to get the necessary bowls, food, some toys, maybe a bed, leash, harness (if necessary; sometimes harnesses won’t work well on pits) BEFORE you get your pet.If you plan on being out of the house for awhile, a crate could be a good choice; I know our pit gets into mischief when left alone for LONG periods of time–he’s not crated, but we have baby proofed our house a lot, and since getting him, he’s more than content with the toys and treats we leave for him. 🙂

Be aware that people around you will not like that you have a pit, even those who love you and should be your best advocates. Pits should def be socialized and trained–and LOVED LOVED LOVED. You will be his/her best advocate, and I have to say, out of all the websites and articles I’ve read on pit bulls, I’ve found TONS of useful and helpful information here from pit owners themselves. Best of luck to you, and let us know how all goes! 🙂
