I have to agree with all above baths,nail,teeth and ears typical cleaning for any dog. very active and aggressive chewers if bored. but as far as family and ppl they are the best and are so loyal.
In my ecperience with my two(witch mind very well) training was easy.
i got lucky…. my friend who saw how easily mine learned got a male and he had me train him.. well i realized veryfast i just got lucky.
but after a week of 30 min a day of continuos training he got better. i find that being firm in your command. and not rewarding at all when command isnt done made a large difference.
Example i said sit and said it firm. dog sat and he recieved treat and happy reaction. did this while i held treat at my chin level so he could see but not reach it. when he did not sit i put treat in pocket and walked away. when he followed i let him smell treat and repeated command firmly, he sat i gave treats and lots of love worked well. some pits are very hyper and need more time like childern, dont give up
In my years with pits i have seen the same pattern. females are more aggressive then male. even more so after a litter. my best addvise would be to keep a close eye on her. pits arent like other dogs due to there remarkable speed and stregth. its like haveing a 6 foot 200 pound 9 year old child with a temper. and they can be very strong headed not untrainable just takes a little more attention. just keep a close eye and correct when needed.(do not slap or hit) just encoureges aggession. spray bottle works great…..
my two pits are the same its in all dog breeds to chace prey. all dogs come from tribes domesticating wild dogs. wolves, dingos ect…
its up to you as a owner to teach them the difference from friend and foe. remember to keep a close eye on your pit. no matter the outcome your dog pit will always be the blame….
please listen to bullypaws aggression with pits no matter how small will lead to there death please help your pit by getting the right help
my boys have chewed a hole in the middle of my bed, a hole in the wall, and my couch… i found that toys,bone,cow nuckles did little.
but i did find that a thick canves, (like military tents are made of). wrapped around a rope or tire hung from anything high. tree branch ect…. this gave them a challange and plenty of durabilaty and the chewing stopped. worked for me maybe you too. ps get them interested in the wrap by rubbing with treats.
