It was a fresh start this morning, but it was wonderful to get the dogs going early. We fetched Tess and Duke, who are rescue dogs, first (have a look at more about their morning over here), and then collected Duke the Pit bull so he could join in the fun and adventure! People in the traffic enjoyed looking at Duke and the other dogs while going past. Duke was very determined this morning, when he found new smells. He is very strong, and can really pull when he sets his mind to it. We took a slightly different route from what we normally do, and he found this very interesting. Its always exciting to go somewhere different, especially with other dogs. Duke was very excited to get his daily dose of exercise in, and to say ‘hello’ to his new friends and everyone around him. We came across another dog who had come off his leash, and Duke remained very calm, which was very impressive. He is such a good dog!
The Misunderstood Pit Bull
Pit bulls are often assumed to be aggressive animals and have negative connotations, but this is actually not the case.
Pit Bulls are good with children. Pit bulls always test high as on of the most stable breeds of dogs. Because of this, they are extremely patient and tolerant of children.
Pit Bulls are easy to train. They are extremely easy to train. All they want to do is please you. They are so sensitive to your feelings, so verbal training comes easily with this breed.
Pit Bulls are good dogs for apt./condo living. Though Pit Bulls are athletic and love to get out and play, if they had their way, they would be sleeping on the couch, 24/7. They are short coated dogs and do not do well outside in the cold weather or very hot weather. They don’t shed too much and are easily groomed, thus making them the ultimate indoor dog.
