Pit bull puppies are adorable like any other puppy and are in great demand for adoption. These puppies may be of a variety of colors-black, white, beige, grey, even the rarer merle and silver and fetch a high price in the market. Puppies with red noses are also in great demand. Most often, pit bulls are bred to produce puppies with qualities that may be desired.
It is advisable to adopt a pit bull in the puppy stage, as it then grows up with you. As a result, it ends up being more loyal as you may be its only master. Pit bulls may have their particular traits, which define their breed, but a puppy can be trained so that negative traits like aggression may be subdued. A pit bull that has been at your home since it was a puppy is more a part of your home.
Training is an important issue when it comes to pit bull puppies and it takes a lot of effort, but consistent and affectionate training will succeed. Pit bull puppies are known to have weak bladders and the initial few months will require it to be taken out every hour.
Training a pit bull puppy can be fun. Driving and tracking can be entertaining for both pit bull as well as the owner. More importantly, working together with the puppy on training creates a stronger bond. This doesn’t happen when training an adult pit bull. Pit bull puppies can be made to respond to verbal commands like ‘go’, ‘fetch’, ‘heel’ etc. They can be made to recall to their names. Here again there is an advantage over adults as you can teach puppy your own language and give a name of your own.
However, there are problems with puppies also. One is the difficulty in housebreaking. The teething period is another. Pit bulls puppies will chew anything, even hands and legs, so better keep kids out of reach of teething pit bull puppies. Pit bull puppies are also moody during this period and are more difficult to train.
When you adopt a pit bull puppy, you do not know what it will turn out to be. It has not yet developed its personal traits. But with proper training and lots of love, pit bull puppies can be made into good dogs.
