Care Tips for Your Blue Pitbull Pup
Blue Pits are immensely popular these days, and are even now called “Blue Lust” since breeders are finding it difficult to keep up with the demand for this breed. If you have decided that you want one of these dogs, you need to discover more about them so you can provide them the right care.
Below are seven care tips for a Blue Pitbull puppy that you should keep in mind:
Start training pronto.
Begin by teaching your dog good habits and obedience commands. If you are uncertain how to go about it, you can find several instructional videos and books on the Internet, or just enlist the help of a dog training expert.
Observe proper feeding.
Vegetables like carrots, sweet potatoes and peas, as well lean meats such as turkey and chicken, are the best sources of nutrition for your Pit pup. If you don’t enjoy preparing dog meals from scratch, you can approach your breeder and ask for dog food recommendations. Keep in mind too that smaller, multiple feedings are smart as they help prevent bloat, a serious and possibly deadly digestive problem brought on by overeating.
Give him his shots.
Missed vaccinations can mute the effectiveness of earlier received vaccines, boosting your pup’s risk of contracting diseases like Distemper or Parvo. In addition, take your pup to the vet on a regular basis to ensure that he is growing on schedule and has no development issues.
Get him the right toys.
Like any other dog breed, Pitbulls love to chew, but the toys and bones you give your pup should not only be fun him but also appropriate for his strong jaws and teeth. You definitely don’t want those toys in his stomach where they could give rise to digestive issues.
Let your pup socialize.
It’s important for your Blue Pit pup to learn to socialize with the world, whether it’s with people, other dogs, his vet, riding in a car, and so on. And, of course, when you start him young, you reduce his chances of behaving aggressively when he’s older.
Get your Blue Pit moving.
Most large breeds are overflowing with energy that should find a way out. Your Blue Pit thus needs a lot of exercise every day. Your pup should be able to run and play outside as a day-to-day practice. Play fetch, chase and other games stimulate his mind and body.
Neuter your dog.
Finally, unless you plan on breeding your Blue Pit, neutering him makes perfect sense. The purpose is to stop unwelcome breeding and passing down of genes.
