One word. Crates.

or more attention and if time with the dogs,actually spending time,like they are in the house watching tv or just lickin their junk in the livin room while you watch tv.
they are not good at staying outside running amuck.I'll never have a pit,or 2 that are left inside A fence when no-ones home without restraint.
if this is to much or not possible then pits are not the right dog at this time in your life.rehome them or conk them on the head and bury them.
my pits have all been ADD.and I am their medicine.

I rember those days of work and school and trying my darnest to find time for my animals. It wasn't easy. You need to find the time to actually work them be it a walk in the morning or a game of fetch some obedience thrown in there. And then like Aus said buy some crates and some kongs and you should be set.

I'm not sure a conk to the head will be enough Will. My pups have run full speed into walls and trees and given themselves pretty good conks on the head without being affected LOL. You might need an industrial strength conk.

I would crate them especially if you're gone for the whole day. If you'd rather leave them out if you're only gone a few hours at a time I'd try Kongs, treat dispenser balls, and raw femur bones are really good too, I get Loki huge ones and I feel okay leaving them in his crate because he can't chew any pieces off. Also if they chew up the sheets they might like playing with soft toys better, you could get a few and rotate them every week or so

I also say crate. I would NOT leave my dog in a yard without a run or kennel...

Not to mention a pit alone all day with another dog is just a recipe for disaster...

I'd be afraid to leave two dogs with treat dispensers... They might get into a fight over them...no?
