❥ Understanding Pit Bull for a Temperament ❥
Pitbull’s temperament is an issue that generates much discussion. Especially for those who do not understand much about the breed and simply believe in the animal’s fame. And for that reason, in today’s text, we will understand a little more about the topic so that you can clarify some myths and get to know this dog more closely.
If your goal is to have a Pitbull as a pet, know that it is not just having it. You need to take into account some important criteria for a healthy relationship between you and the animal. And, of course, for anyone to contact him. In addition to taking care of food and physical preparation, it is necessary to train him so that he does not have the wrong form.
The Pitbull is an animal with an intelligence considered good. And this means that he can learn some positive techniques for life. However, it does not mean that he accepts the lessons so easily. His personality often calls for stubbornness, and if you don’t know how to deal with it, you can make him suffer.
So follow the text and learn all about the Pitbull’s temperament!
❥ What is truth and what is a myth? Pitbull’s temperament ❥
Pitbull’s temperament is famous. Many think he is an extremely angry and dangerous dog. But, at the outset, we can say: this is not necessarily true. The canine aggression itself has nothing to do with any specific race. After all, all dogs can turn into aggressive dogs. Everything will depend on a number of factors.
But of course, we cannot deny that the Pitbull is an animal different from the others. And different does not mean that it is dangerous. It only commands respect, mainly due to the reputation of recurring attacks. So a lot of people don’t even want to go near him. Also, a lot of people want to have him to show virility. Both situations are extreme and should not happen.
Pitbull’s temperament, in general, is moderate. He is a strong and fast dog and this means that instincts, when activated, can take him to extreme situations. Therefore, we recommend that you follow the text to understand a little more about how to deal with the dog, whether you are a guardian or just out of curiosity.
Does a Pitbull attack “for free”? Are they ordinary dogs that have been taught to be aggressive? Or does mistreatment directly interfere with their personality development? Well, I would say it is a combination of everything. There are many factors that need to be considered for you to understand what a Pitbull is.
❥ Is Pitbull as aggressive as people say? ❥
Whether by a Pitbull dog bite or a sporadic attack that happens eventually, this breed has a reputation for being extremely aggressive. This happens for several reasons. The first one is due to the facts that occur. If a Pitbull attacks a person on the street, it sounds as if all the other Pitbulls are going to do the same.
The second reason is that this is a breed “produced” to hunt. That is, the animal was crossed in a way that could represent speed and strength – we will talk more about that during the text. The fact of all this is that there is a lot of extremism when people who don’t understand much of the subject comment on it.
Of course, there are breeds more docile than Pitbull. But this does not mean that he is an aggressive animal for free. On the contrary! He is aggressive due to a series of circumstances that make him aggressive: trials, stimulation, quarrels, self-defence, etc.
Unfortunately, there are many Pitbull owners who want to have the animal to demonstrate virility and use them as entertainment. It is absurd, but there are still countless Pitbull females scattered throughout Brazil. What is a crime and makes animals extremely aggressive – did you understand a little about the reason for the fame?
❥ Pitbull may not be your best watchdog ❥
Choosing a watchdog is a difficult task. As much as you think of large animals with a strong personality, this does not mean that they are good options. This is the case with Pitbull. Pitbull’s temperament, when not stimulated to primitive instincts, is that of a partner and friend. Therefore, it may not be the best option for guarding your home.
And here many people are surprised, as they imagine this breed of dog as the ideal one to protect from enemies. Yes, this is not necessarily true. There are other animals that have a more suitable temperament for those looking for an animal to let loose in the courtyard as a guardian.
The Pitbull is an ordinary dog, like any other. The difference is that he can be encouraged to become very aggressive. And this is horrible because the animal suffers and becomes a stressed, anxious, and very obsessive dog. So, if you want to use him as your yard guardian, you need to teach him who to attack and who to respect. But this is not always easy.
In other words, respecting the Pitbull is one of the best paths to be followed by those who really want to make the most of the animal’s docility. But of course: Pitbull’s fame can ward off potential intruders. After all, they won’t want to mess with a dog that, in their judgment, is aggressive and will attack at any cost. This is also a point of view that must be considered.
❥ The social and family life can happen smoothly, as long as with accompaniments ❥
The socialization of the dog is key to any animal. They need to feel part of an environment so that they do not arise or have any kind of emotional disturbance. And anyone who believes that Pitbull’s temperament makes it impossible for him to socialize is wrong.
He may well live with strangers, other animals in the park, or even within his family. All you need to do is take responsibility for the animal. That is, you need to know your dog to understand what he can and cannot do. Therefore, we recommend that you have good conviviality practices – being a Pitbull or not.
Maybe you know Pinscher’s temper and you know how much he hates strange people, don’t you? They are extremely angry dogs and this is part of their daily lives. Therefore, it is necessary to take some precautions to be able to take him for a walk. And the same needs to be interpreted for those who are Pitbull tutors.
Wearing a muzzle, a collar that is resistant and comfortable, and giving a lot of affection is essential. Another important point is to make the animal understand that you are his leader. That is, he needs to know that he has limits and that he cannot do what he wants. As you know, Pitbull is an extremely strong and fast dog. And any accident that can happen in socializing, will be extremely harmful and harmful.
❥ Pitbull tends to be aggressive in some situations that instill an instinct ❥
One of the points of the Pitbull’s temperament that cannot be escaped is the hunting instinct. When instigated, the animal can easily play the role of a lot of brute force to defeat the opponent. After all, this was the motivation for raising him in captivity – and this is not necessarily a good thing. The dog also suffers from having to feel anxious to hunt. Especially when you are forced to.
In addition to hunting, the animal becomes very aggressive when provoked. And there are several ways to do this, which we will not address here as it is beside the point. The fact is that, from the moment the dog feels trapped by any situation, he can be stimulated to go up.
But rest assured that this can also be controlled. With good dog training, there is no behaviour that cannot be worked on and improved. That is, one more positive point in your balance if you are evaluating the possibility of adopting a Pitbull but you are still in doubt.
The right care can make the animal extremely peaceful. However, if you “step on the ball”, the animal can easily be accustomed to aggressively. And it is in these moments that some accidents can happen – surely you have seen cases where the victim said that the animal was docile and out of nowhere, attacked.
Yeah. Whether they like it or not, they are still animals and have instincts.
❥ Pitbull, a good dog to keep your children company? ❥
With all the fame of canine aggressiveness, does Pitbull’s temperament make him a good candidate to keep his kids company? Well, I believe that you must already be drawing your own conclusions about what the animal really means in the canine sphere. Docility, tranquillity, strength, and speed go together. Therefore, it resembles other dogs.
So, yes, Pitbull can easily be the company for your children. After all, love with love has only one result: more love! However, it is also necessary to always keep an eye on it so that accidents do not happen. As we mentioned earlier, a dog put to its instincts can indeed attack.
This is not a Pitbull exclusive. The difference is that Pitbulls generally have more strength. And the damage can be exponentially greater.
We recommend supervision at all times so that unforeseen events can be avoided. In addition, it is essential that you prepare the dog to understand how to act with your child.
And for this, training will be fundamentally important. He needs to know how to deal with the child and needs to understand the limits. In this case, you will need to monitor closely to be able to intervene in any situation.
❥ How does a Pitbull behave inside a kennel? ❥
The best answer to this question is: it depends! It depends on a number of factors. If you have followed the text so far, you have already understood how important it is to provide a good life for the dog to develop smoothly. And a good life means giving a lot of love, affection, good food, and, of course, adequate space for him.
In the case of large dogs – as is the case with the Pitbull – you need to offer space for it to spend energy. A kennel can be useful. But, it needs an open area. Never corner the animal in a small, tight, unventilated location, etc. This makes him extremely anxious and stressed. And, you know, a stressed dog can develop many risky situations.
And again, this goes for all races. Not just Pitbull. But, of course, the Pitbull alone can become much angrier than the others due to a bad space for socializing. And when this happens, many people simply believe that the animal is like that and have nothing to do. When in fact, the problem is not with the animal. But yes, on the tutor.
That is, if you want to put your Pitbull in the kennel, you need to offer him freedom at some point: walks, games, dog games, entertainment, and a lot of energy.
❥ The culture that makes Pitbull feared and famous ❥
The most common fame of the Pitbull’s temperament, as you may know, is aggressiveness and brutality. This is culturally accepted in Brazil and in the world. This is not true, as you may have understood during this text. All of this arose from the fact that some people make the animal brutal.
That is, they condition the dog to extreme situations. And this causes them to activate the wildest instincts possible. After all, they need to ensure their own survival. And it is not an exaggeration: they really need to guarantee survival, because unfortunately, there are people who still put dogs to fight each other and even death! And guess who is usually the “king” of battles? Yes, the Pitbull.
If the dog spoke, he could say how ridiculous these situations are and how pathetic the man is in specific cases like this, right? Therefore, it is essential that you understand where the “rumours” come from so that you can draw your own conclusions about what the fact really is.
❥ Pitbull’s courage makes him a dog with a lot of personalities – and very stubborn ❥
If you are thinking of having a Pitbull in your house, know that he is a dog with a strong personality and a lot of courage. And that sounds like a positive thing, doesn’t it? But, it is not necessarily. After all, this “courage” often causes the animal to suffer accidents or develop extreme stubbornness to respect the guardian.
A stubborn dog is synonymous with difficulty in coping. Because you will need to spend a lot more energy to fix it than normal. And, again, this is not a Pitbull exclusive. Other dogs also show symptoms of stubbornness even before undergoing conditioning and training.
So be prepared to be very patient and solve many situations based on affection and love. Otherwise, if you get stressed and make the dog understand this, he can go the wrong way and, in this way, become aggressive!
❥ An essentially hunting dog due to specific breeding ❥
Another specific and fundamental point for you to understand the Pitbull’s temperament is to know its origin. Well, you may have heard that this is a dog “produced” by humans.
Yes, this is another one of the “beauties” that man can put on the curriculum: crossing different races to create a third. The problem with this is the lack of consideration for the existence of animals.
In other words, simply making two different animals cross to try to have a third breed to meet demand is not something to be envied, is it? In the case of the Pitbull, he appeared to be a hunting dog different from the ones that existed.
Some were strong and slow, others were fast and weak. Until the moment that someone had the “brilliant” idea of joining the two things to have a strong and fast race at the same time.
The problem is not even this. The problem is the mistreatment and the wild and aggressive conditioning that many tutors provide to the animal, simply for pure fun. And so, a dog that is common often suffers from enormous prejudice and is defamed by the actions of the human being itself. Think about it.
❥ Never fail to train your Pitbull to be obedient ❥
And finally, a fundamental tip: Never stop training your dog. Be it a Pitbull or not. Training can provide our dogs with a much lighter, quieter, and more balanced life. After all, they learn that they don’t have to stress about anything and begin to understand who they should listen to and respect.
Imposing limits is one of the most important points of any relationship between humans and dogs. Otherwise, they will do what they want, when they want and will suffer for it. Pitbull’s temperament, in this case, can be extremely peaceful. You just have to take control of the situation and provide it to him.
