Crate and Rotate
I have a 10 month old pit mix from a shelter, and want to get a male puppy from a breeder, and leave him intact so he can do either Conformation, or weight pull or some other dog sport. I currently have a couple geriatric toys and a geriatric cat. The pit mix does pretty well with the toys, and ok with the cat when I'm around, but not so well if no one is looking. I really enjoy letting my pack roam the house together with the exception of the cat who has his own area of the house. I don't leave the pit mix out free roaming when not home, but if I'm home she is as free to roam as the toys. If I bring in a pure bread male when he reaches sexual maturity is that the end of my free roaming pack?
