Can you think of something more heart-melting than baby dogs? And baby Pitbulls in particular! In this article, we’ll do our best to cover everything you need to know about baby Pitbulls.
Whether you’re expecting your Pitbull to deliver a litter or you’re bringing one home and want to know what baby Pitbulls are all about, we’ve got some very useful information for everyone to check out.
Is A Baby Pitbull Really What You Want?
Assuming you don’t already have a Baby Pitbull at home and are contemplating adding one as a household member of yours, it’s best that you think a few things over at first in order to be 100% sure of your decision.
First off, you must make sure that a baby Pitbull is exactly what you’re looking for in a pet at this moment in time.
After you’re absolutely sure that a baby Pitbull is exactly what you want in your life at this point in time, you’re going to have to do some thinking for the future, i.e when the Pitbull grows up and is no longer just a little, tiny baby.
To do this in the best way possible, take up on a few reads online[1,2] that talk about what an adult Pitbull is like.
That way, you’ll be able to learn about their characteristics, temperament, physical traits, etc .. and you’ll be able to weigh the pros and cons of having a Pitbull at home.
You’ll also be able to make a decision about whether a Pitbull is really the right dog for you or not.
By doing this little research, you’ll be able to learn about everything a Pitbull is and has to offer in life, and determine whether that’s what you’re really looking for in a dog or not.
In the end, and in order for both you and your dog to lead happy lives, the compatibility between both of you must be on a high level.
When Baby Pitbulls Are Right For Us, And When Baby Pitbulls Are Wrong For Us
Just for assumption’s sake and as an example, imagine having a dog at home that thrives on playing around and exercising all day long, and the only family member at home with them all day long is you, while you absolutely loathe physical activity and would rather stay on the couch all day long watching T.V.
Not very much compatibility going on there now, is there!
Your Pitbull will be miserable in this case, and you won’t experience the true joy that having a dog at home really brings along with it.
You’re also going to have to do a little bit of planning for the future, because more and more discriminating rules are being put into place against Pitbulls by various cities, areas, dog parks, different facilities, retail stores, landlords, etc ..
So before you make the decision of getting a baby Pitbull home and taking care of it until it grows up, you’re going to want to make sure that you’re able to keep them with you no matter where you go.
This, of course, unless you’re looking forward to experience the heartbreak of having to give them away.
A Note About Pitbulls And Agression
One thing we always hear being tossed around the internet and everywhere in the community of dog lovers is the saying that a baby Pitbull will eventually grow to become a violent, aggressive and destructive dog.
This concept is completely unfounded and untrue, and stems from the untrue stereotype that all Pitbulls are aggressive and violent dogs in nature.
We have to understand that it’s all about how the dog was raised at a young age, what kind of environment they were in and how well they were trained and socialized.
And this holds true for Pitbulls just like it does for any other dog breed out there.
Raise any dog in a hostile environment, and they will grow up to be hostile.
While if you raise any dog in a friendly environment, they will grow up to be friendly dogs.
It’s just that simple.
Sure, some dogs have a tiny bit more of a disposition to be aggressive at times, but that doesn’t count for anything major, and it all ties back to how the dog was raised when they were a young puppy.
For example, it’s widely believed that baby Pitbulls grow up to become some of the best watchdogs/guard-dogs there is, but that’s not true for the entirety of Pitbulls out there.
The majority of baby Pitbulls will indeed grow up to become some of the best guard dogs there ever was, is and will be, mainly because this breed has many characteristics that make up a good watch dog.
But what about other Pitbulls that were raised in a way too friendly and outgoing environment in which they learned to warm up to strangers very quickly?
These Pitbulls surely won’t do very well as guard dogs if any stranger is able to make friends with them on the spot!
So again, it all depends on what the circumstances were like when the baby Pitbull was being raised.
With that being said, and excuse us pointing out the obvious, a baby Pitbull will of course not make a good guard dog, because they’re just tiny little babies that don’t have any physical power to deter anyone or anything that wants to harm you or any other family member of yours.
So if you’re looking for a guard dog, you’re going to have to wait until your baby Pitbull grows up and becomes a mature adult dog!
Enjoy your baby Pitbull while they’re still all young and cute. 🙂
Training Baby Pit Bulls
Because of the fact that Pitbulls do indeed have a tiny bit more disposition to be aggressive towards other animals and sometimes other humans, training and socializing your Pitbull from a young age is very important.
If you wait until your baby Pitbull becomes an adult, fully grown Pitbull, you’ll find that training them into developing new habits isn’t as easy.
A young, baby Pitbull still hasn’t gotten used to any habits for a long time, while an adult, fully grown Pitbull has.
