Can English Bull Terriers swim? We live on the water and have a pool and our puppy bully seems afraid...

    Not advisable...heard a story of a lady here in the UK who took her EBT swimming and the dog died.......a short coat + long swim = hypothermia, together with the tremendous muscle strain when swimming....not a good idea!

    I don't think they are natural swimmers, they tend to sink because they are so heavy. Although I'm told if you teach them from very young they can.

    LOL oh they can swim if they have to. My EBT, Ozzy is rather clumsy and has HAD to swim as he regularly falls into the canal on walks. He splashes lots and is not the most elegant, but he does keep his head above water until I pull him out. Then he forgets and wanders too close for a quick drink and... splash another swim. He has a paddling pool in the garden and wont go in it. So I think the EBT choice is NOT to swim unless forced. I'd like to see one who enjoyed it though.

    So nobody just chucked em in and found out? Mine swims fine, not his favorite activity due to lack of hair and body fat which create bouyancy. Working with his fear by having him sit in the river on a hot day but not having to swim helped him realize he could cool without drowning.

We own 6 beautiful dogs 3 of them are pit Bulls, it is true that they can be aggressive towards other dos and animals, however when introduced properly the are very receptive and friendly, most people don't understand how the owner is the one that holds the key in having a well mannered PitBull. As an owner you must be totally dedicated to be constant and have a keen sense for being a responsible owner, Pit Bulls are the most amazing dogs they have a humanlike way for understanding and learning, they are extremely faithful and loving, however you must always stay as the pack leader, when you lose that place they will take advantage of their higher power and control. I invite anyone who wishes to know more about their pittbull to contact me through facebook and or post comments and concerns in this forum.

    Hello, I am so happy you took in this dog rather than purchasing one from a breeder. When a dog is abused it can take a very long time for them to learn the proper way to do things. One of our pits was chained to a tree and abused for the first 8 months of her life, after that she spent time in a foster home that wasn't any better. We got her at 11 months and it took a VERY long time to get her turned around. We had to hand feed her, she constantly had bowel movements in her kennel and she was extremely fearful. We've had her 4 years now and she is excellent with people, animals and fabulous with children, but to this day she still cowers down and pees if I walk past her quickly with a broom because it brings her back to when she was a puppy and what happened. The first couple years with her was so extremely frustrating and I never thought we would see any results, but I promise if you stick with it and have a routine your dog will come around. Have you had your dog checked for worms? Or any other health problems by chance? I also highly recommend getting some professional obedience training for him. Whether it be a place you take him or have someone come to your home. Make sure they have experience with pits. They are absolutely amazing dogs. It's terrible what man has done to them. Another thing I recommend is buying books about pits. I have about 6 or 7 of them just because I wanted to be educated when I got my first pit due to the reputation these poor dogs have. I hope some of this helps you and I wish you the best with your pittie!

I have two Rottweilers and it is all on how you socialize your pet. Any dog can be mean and bite and just because they are big doesn't make them mean. Rottweilers are actually the best breed with children they will protect your child from any stranger and mine in fact would protect a strangers child that is how much he loves kids on another note I have a three yr old rottie who started having seizures and I was reluctant to start her on medicine which is phenobarbital and it will make her very out of it. Instead I chose to go with a holistic approach and recommend it to anyone with issues of seizures with any breed it is called allergic to get natural meds.

    What can also help is to remember things that happened right before the seizure and see if its usually the same things going on and if you prevent that from happening then note how many times that they will com.

    Dogs are pregnant from 55 - 63 days. So about 55 - 63 days from the time she did "IT" you should have puppies. Congratulations it is fun. It is work but it is fun. Be prepared ahead of time - OK?
