Madison is an unknown quantity at this point
Getting an apbt

Finally found a good breeder, pup will be available for Nov. Now I know and read about DA. Madison is extremely submissive (it's horrible) I want to keep her just cause I learned the basics with her. I am ready for a dog full of energy and drive. It is the reason I love this particular breed. Now from the extensive research I have found, and please please feel free to correct me (just nicely):

Keep them separate when not being supervised
Rotate crates
Feed at the same time
Same treatment ( if one is allowed on the sofa so is the other)
get dog treadmill for the apbt (Winter)
SOCIALIZE is a must.

I already feed Madison a RAW diet, so the other will eat the same. To me it is actually cheaper than buying kibble.

Any other input I might be missing please let me know.


oh if my dog turns out to be a monster what kind of crate do you have for your strong apbt?

I have seen a couple of solutions to the crate eaters. One is just to always watch Craig's list and try picking them up for $40, and you can just replace it every time they figure out a way out of it. I have also seen someone put a plastic crate inside of a metal crate so once they chew out they are stuck, but you could also get a metal hunting dog's box.

They make extra strong crates that are way better quality than the pet store ones. There is a member here that has a couple I believe, but I can't think of who it is right now.

First of all, know that some dogs go into a true panic when they are confined in a crate (claustrophobia?). They will hurt themselves trying to get out of a crate, no matter how escape-proof it is.

It's not common, but I have seen it. They will pant incessantly in the crate and drool so much it will look like the dog spilled its water. And perhaps bloody themselves trying to get out.

The other consideration when crating is the length of time the dog will have to spend in the crate. No one ever mentions that when considering crating, but it's important in my opinion. Our dogs today live lives of such confinement anyway; the additional 8, 10 hours a day in a crate and then often again at night, to me seems too much.

Carla Restivo makes a good point. I don't tell many about this, but I didn't like my dogs being in crates all day, and I did assemble a 10x10x6 chain link kennel in my basement along with an old recliner. They prefer my bed, but that is another option as long as they are at home. Also Happy tail is a problem for dogs with a sting hind quarters and not a lot of fat or fur on the tip of their tail. Happy tail sucks, and can cost you a few inches of tail.
