Ok so me and my boyfriend just recently adopted a four year old red nose pit, he is very friendly but not in the right shape a pit should be in, what is the proper diet and exercise to bulk him up a little and get him into shape?

    First of all what kind of shape is he in. Is he overweight or underweight. Was he a fighting dog a bait dog. What is his history. For overweight dogs you need to get it off him and start working him at least 3 times a day walks, runs, tug of war anything that will make him work. Also go to your local feed store and find some food that fits your wallet and that's going to be great for him. Taste of the wild is awesome food. Nurto is also good. If you have a costco in your state get their food. 40 pounds for $20. No fillers and has everything you want to give him. Or you can do the all raw diet. Either way you need to work him out in order for him to get in the shape you want him to be. Also try going to your vet and asking if there is anything that they would say to do. Google it also. I hope something that i had to say works. Oh and also get him a backpack and put empty water bottles in it then after a week start to add more weight. Walk him an hour a day 2 times a day once in the morning once at night. If you really want him to become a great healthy dog do that and you will have a wonderful dog. Happy bullying :)

Hi, I had gotten Quiki 3 weeks ago from my daughter and her boyfriend. He abused her for 6 months, until my daughter moved out and took her. I have her now, and she is just soo submissive. She is extremely thin, very picky on food. Though my daughters bf only fed her a cup a day, she really needs 3 cups. She was eating good, then stopped so I slowly changed her dog food, she was eating that then again stopped and I slowly changed it back to the same dogfood. She stopped and hasn't eaten in 2 days. Now I have an 11year old chow, my chow doesn't mind her and they get along. I walk her, take her to parks every day for 2 hours except wednesday
We walk for 2 hours, and I walk her at night for an hour before bed. She just drinks water. She refuses to eat. I really thought if she uses all her energy she would be starving but so far nothing. She don't chew bones, she chews napkins. She hides a lot, always pees in the house and looks at me if I am to beat her like the bf did. I don't get it. She hates my bird, my chow protects the bird, they had a quarrel which my dog won, she backed down. She is friendly to EVERYONE all dogs at the park. But her listening to me is getting worse. She doesn't come when I tell her, which is strange cause for 3weeks yesterday was the only day she refused to listen and now this morning she peed all over the rug. Can anyone help me?

    I have helped a few friends of mine with dog issues and I have learned (from The Dog Whisperer) that our energy really comes into play with troubled animals. Have you checked your energy while trying to get him to eat or to come? Ceaser Milan says one must always be patient and never show any negative emotion as dogs pick up on this. Sounds like she is getting enough exercise. I would highly recommend you watch Dog Whisperer or buy his books. He has totally changed how I train my dogs and it works so much better with problems that are hard to deal with. Bless your heart for looking after this girl.

I've raised American Pit Bull Terriers for more than 25 years...not as a breeder, but simply as a pet owner. Most of the dogs I've raised were either shelter rescued or fostered from families that could no longer care for them. I may be biased, but I sincerely believe the APBT to be easily within the top 3 of the absolute best dog companions that a person could care for. They are loyal, fun-loving, energetic, bold, courageous, and playful...although not for everyone. Because of their natural tendency towards dog aggression and their indomitable spirit, they should be raised by committed and skilled owners who are familiar with their history. I currently have two, a male named Kane and a female named Trinity. They are both rescues from the local shelter. Kane is approximately three years old and I've had him since he was around six months; Trinity is 18 months and I've had her about a year. Kane was found as a stray before being taken to the shelter, and Trinity was surrendered by a family that could no longer care for her. Although, there were some initial challenges, the life of my family has been greatly rewarded by the inclusion of these two great dogs. I would encourage anyone who is looking to own a member of this beautiful breed of dog to do their research, become familiar with their local laws regarding ownership of the APBT, and consider adopting from a rescue organization or animal shelter. And, by all means, please spay or neuter your pet. Currently, the American Pit Bull Terrier is probably the most exploited dog in the world. Because of their desire to please their owner, they are successfully being utilized for both legal and nefarious purposes, and their reputation precedes them. This is the #1 breed of dog that is euthanized in shelters. This breed does not need any more back yard breeders. There are a sufficient quantity of APBTs being kept in shelters to satisfy the most discriminatory owner. If you are the right owner for this breed, your rewards will be immeasurable with the proper training and care of an adopted dog.

I love my mini Schnauzer, Sgt. Schultz. We go outside as weather permits, but he loves to play indoors too. Luckily we have a long hall way. Our mini loves to fetch and is pretty good about bringing back his toys, for you to "do it again" and again... I would agree they do well indoors, but really need to release that energy. Ours is a "chewer", so best to pick up shoes!

You can get them fixed at any age but it will cost more once they start to go up in age. It's best to get them fixed at a young age so they can recover faster and you can have a happy puppy back. Second old family red nose pitbulls are not hard to find they are not rare. If they were half of my friend would not be breeding them. They are so easy like any other blood out there to find. I have camelot pits and they're my babies I love them. People need to do research before they start to talk crap about the breed.

At what age is it ok to neutralize my Pig dog (english Bull Terrier)? I'm afraid if we do it too early, that he will not be as "manly" as he should.
He is 1yr and 4 months now and is chasing and grinning at the other females (not b.terriers) when they come on heat.

Looking for information on how old they should be when you have them altered. My son was told 41/2 months. His is currently 15 weeks and is a red nose male. He rescued him in Oregon at 4 weeks old. Thank You..

Your Puppy may have Demedex, it's a form of mange that is genetic and can be very tough to get rid of. My pitbull terrier had it and it was terrible!
My vet here in the USA actually told me to use Promeris flea treatment which studies had found had a side effect of curing the demedex. It goes on once a month on the back of the neck like Frontline and it cured my dogs problem.

Hope maybe this helps!

Hello,

Have you tried a raw food diet? One of my dogs had sever allergies. When I put him on a raw food diet, his allergies subsided
