Before getting a Pit

Post by Hindeberg on Thu Aug 26, 2010 3:07 pm

Can anyone give advice to someone planning on getting a pit in Ireland? Are there traits specific to the breed that someone more used to Shepherd's breeds might not expect. I have a bit of experience of bandog breeds over the years but never as an owner. My partner prefers smaller dogs and likes the idea of having a dog home with her as she is occsionally left there at night while I'm out with mine.

Pit Bulls are like any other dog, they need human attention. They are a high calibre breed of dog when it comes to exercise and games. These are vital for a number of reasons, if they are just sitting there. Their energy builds up and they need to release it, sometimes it can be devastating. They are inclined to gain weight very easy too. Its important to stimulate them mentally and physically. One thing i noticed about the dogs i had over the years, they all crave human attention. They love to be loved and enjoy human affection too. They vary in shapes, sizes and characteristic's. So do observe each pup first and the parents if possible. This will make it easier for the type of Pit Bull you want.

I dont understand why you had to pm Henry. Unless it was a private matter unrelated to this association.

Eamo, the young man sent me a PM. What's the big deal? As well as giving me his opinion on my question he also told me a bit about his dogs and a relative who happens to live close to me with a dog who he is going to visit. A little off topic, maybe that's why he pm'ed me. I don't know why he pm'ed me.

Is that a board rule; if you pm someone you must explain why?

It would seem the thought police are out in force on this board. It's all to much for me anyway so I will say good bye. I can not say it was fun becuse it really really was not.

We just have our reasons for particular members. Yous can PM each other until the Cows come home. No offence to Harry, he has his dogs well looked after and plenty of exercise. I do believe he has no right to share his knowledge of the A.P.B.T. if he has never owned one. When he gets his dog, he will experience in what they demand. My apoligies if i caused any upset.
