Big dogs that dont shed, will eat just about anything! (dogs)
I have a 15 month old pit bull. He has a bad habit of jumping on the bed and when his butt hits the bed, it makes a loud noise. When I look at him, he doesn't have a scratch. When I hear the noise it makes me want to jump off the bed and hurt him. I also am afraid to sleep in my bed because he seems to enjoy jumping on me. I would like some suggestions for a solution.
I understand that when they were babies, a lot of pit bull owners said that they were the perfect dog. However, I don't think they are so bad. The only problem is that they seem to have an instinct to be territorial and they tend to be bullies when they feel threatened. I believe that pit bulls should be trained not to get into situations where they feel like they are being bullied or where they feel like someone is trying to take something from them.
If you would like to train your dog in the house, go to the doggy school of hard knocks where they offer obedience classes. This is a private facility, but they do offer daycare and boarding as well. You can also take your dog to the public dog park and give it the boot.
You can also try taking it for a walk, if you feel you have to. I know people that have tried putting their dog in their own crate, in the basement, and even putting a bell around their neck. If you can get it into a crate, you will have to make sure that it is big enough for your dog, but you can't let it get to the point where it is over weight, or it will not be able to fit in the crate.
This is the only suggestion that I can think of. You need to get your dog trained so that it will stop jumping on the bed, or it is just going to keep doing it. You need to work on your bed because you can't make any changes unless you are willing to get up and get the dog out. The best solution would be to get it house trained. This will take a long time, and you will need a lot of patience. When you are ready, the first step would be to teach your dog to go in a crate. If you decide to let your dog sleep in your room, you may have to put a baby gate up so that your dog doesn't get into the bed. You can also get an electric fence to put in the bed.
When you are done, you may be able to let it sleep with you. However, this is going to take a lot of work and a lot of time. I hope that you are not going to get into an argument with your dog because it isn't a good idea to make a big dog feel that he/she is in the wrong because he/she did something that he/she shouldn't have done.
You can call me crazy, but we just got a 3 year old Rottweiler puppy (male) yesterday. My family and I decided to get him because we love dogs. The other dogs I had in my past weren't big enough to do a lot of what Rottweilers can do. It is kind of scary because he is a lot bigger than the previous dogs. They were smaller in height, but I felt they were not big enough for him to play with. I hope he doesn't grow to be as large as his parents.
He is the sweetest dog I've ever known. I don't have any experience with pit bulls so I'm asking if he has good qualities and if he will do well as a house pet or family pet. I would like to keep him because he is the sweetest dog in the world.
This question has been answered and will remain on hold until at least one more answer is received.
The only thing I can suggest is to take the dog for a good walk, and if that doesn't work, give it to a friend who can help you train your new pet. If you do this, make sure you tell the friend that you can no longer do this, or you will get sued.
The other question that I have for you is this: why do you feel it's important to house train the dog? I ask this because house training is not required by any reputable breeders or dog groomers. Also, unless you are going to be working with your dog for a living, house training the dog is a very very big expense. I could go on and on, but if you'd like to know more, I would suggest you read the American Kennel Club's Canine Care & Training Information. This document contains the very best information that any reputable breeder, dog groomer, dog trainer or shelter could give you, so read it!
My boyfriend and I are expecting our first baby in June. We want a dog before the baby arrives. Our parents and my family are big dog people. We don't have any experience with dogs. Our parents have 3 little dogs that they use as guards. We don't know what kind of dog to get. The only thing we can think of is a large pit bull. But we don't want to get a dog that has a bad temper. Please tell us what kind of dog we should get.
Pit bull's are not bred to be guard dogs and they're temperture is not an issue. There is a misconception that a pit bull has a bad temper but that's not true. They can be trained to be a good pet.
I don't think you need a pit bull to have a guard dog, especially if you get one that has already been trained. You could also try getting a puppy from a reputable breeder, rather than getting one from a shelter. Also, you could look at buying a dog from a reputable breeder.
You could also look at getting a smaller dog. Some breeds are bred for a particular role and some are not. You should try looking up each breed that you're considering, and read the breed profiles so you'll know what breed is best for you and your family.
