❥ How to raise a Most to satisfy healthy Pitbull? ❥
Health and exercise are vital to a happy, healthy dog. Pitbulls thrive on daily exercise and hard workouts. This is one of the reasons they excel at weight pulling. Every day I get emails about pit bulls with behaviour problems. From jumping, chewing, licking, separation anxiety, growling, excessive barking, whatever you want and I’ve been asked at least once. My answer to questions is always a question.
How much exercise does your dog get daily?
❥ Exercise is not only important for long-term health, ❥
it can also help solve behaviour problems. For example, I recently received an email from a lady who was her dog was “tough and stubborn”, those are her words, not mine. Her email continued to describe her dog’s actions and can be told by the words she had at end of your wits. I emailed him and asked the question above: “How much exercise does your dog get on a daily basis?” She responded with all kinds of things. However, the only thing he did not mention was how much he walked with his dog.

Longer walks create stronger bonds between you and your. I responded again by asking her to increase her walks by 50%. Turning your mediocre 1 mile into 2 miles every day.
A few days later, she answered me and said that her dog wasn’t chewing too much, that she was listening better, and that she had stopped jumping on guests (the reason she emailed me).
This is not an isolated incident. I have HUNDREDS of examples from people around the world who have written testimonials about how a simple walk dramatically changed their dogs and their own lives. You should also know that I am not honking my own horn here, but rather sharing vital information that has been shown to be effective in 99.9% of the cases I have dealt with. Exercise is so important. You can literally take a dog that is out of control and change his attitudes within a very short period of time.
If your dog is misbehaving and doing things like barking, jumping, articulating, chewing, etc … start taking long walks (2-5 miles) every day and notice the difference. I’m sure you will see a dramatic change.
❥ Pitbulls need structure and leadership, ❥
not doggy friends and isolation. Learning to guide your dog and being a leader is not easy. Dogs are different and respond to their own language. A language that we, as people, find difficult to understand and even more difficult to put into action. However, there are some things you can do right now that will help you.
More exercise. I’m talking about that a lot. Longer play sessions, longer walks, longer times in the pool, etc … as long as your dog is healthy, there should be no problem. Of course, common sense plays an important role, you should not immediately go from not walking 5 miles to 90 degrees. Take it slowly and build them step by step.
Less love, more structure. What I mean by this is that sometimes we tend to do it in the love department and no real limits are set for dogs. This generates disrespect and that is one of the main problems that people cause themselves.
For your dog to respect you, they have to understand that there are rules to follow. These are simple rules and until they are learned, attention is kept to a minimum.
If you love your dog 24/7 and they jump on people, chew things, or weigh 10 pounds or more, it is caused by your love. To raise a happy and healthy Pitbull, they must have structure and, more importantly, discipline. I don’t mean hitting, yelling, yelling, etc. I mean the limits.
Another thing I recommend for Pitbull owners is to feed a raw diet and to feed HALF the recommended amount on the dog food bags if you are feeding kibble. Why half? Because people feed their dogs more by creating little “potatoes with legs”, as I call them.
❥ Finally ❥
By providing your dog with leadership, rules, exercise, and affection you are setting the stage for a longer and happier life with your companion. This is not harsh or cruel. This is exactly how you would raise a human child.
