Crate and Rotate

Hi,

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?

Very big chance it could be. even with the mix you have now I would watch them closely. Some never have issues with multiples where others have had accidents. I think you should go into it expecting and preparing to do a crate and rotate schedule. If you never have to do that then you are lucky but always be prepared. If this is the sort of thing you do not want to do then I would seriously reconsider the breed you are wanting.

Cool

I am pretty set on an APBT. I was hoping to pull the trigger in the next 18 months. The cat and the toys are in their teens, and we may lose one or more of them in that span of time, but how many hours a day should they be out of the kennel? Cause I am building a run and am in the process of replacing the 4ft fence around the yard with a 6ft. I put the pit mix on the trolley about 4 hours a day. about 1 hour or so at a time, and try to walk her a couple miles each night and morning. The pit mix is awesome! I feel guilty admitting I never enjoyed the sense of pride and awe with the toys that I do with her. Itís just she can't compete in anything cause of her origins, and even if she could her lack of sex hormones would compromise her performance.

Your pit mix can compete in any except conformation and being spayed won't make a difference, there are plenty of fixed dock dogs, weight pullers, agility, etc.

That is not true. You can do everything but conformation with a spayed or of unknown origin dog. You just need to know where to look. My girl will be competing in Weight Pull if she shows enough drive for it, and she is of questionable origin. APA and IWPA are great non-breed specific Weight Pull orginizations. And you can get limited registration with the AKC and UKC to do agility and other things.

Remember, its not about winning. Its about getting out and doing something with your dog.

My neutered male is two legs up on his dock diving title he also enjoys weight pulling as well. I'm hoping to get him out to a pull pretty soon here actually we've just been a bit busy with Dock diving. I'm also hoping to start him in Schutsund by the end of the year as well. Just because the dog is fixed or a mixed breed doesn't mean you guys can't go out and enjoy a sport together
