I have a 11 week old male pit puppy and a 6 month old german shepherd/husky mix, male as well. We have a chain link fence and so far our older dog hasn't shown any interest in wanting to jump it and he easily could. I want to train them both so that they will NOT ever jump the fence. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Also we are planning on getting our mix fixed over the summer, but we are keeping the pit intact. Will this cause problems between the two of them or will it make things better when both hit maturity?

You can't make them not jump the fence if they see something interesting. Why fix one and not the other? Fixing them both will at least rule out the need to hop the fence for females in heat. The only sure fire way to keep them in is to never leave them unsupervised, and chain them while being supervised.

Welcome to the forum. :)

Thank you.

We are planning on using the pit in weight pulling events and it looks like they cannot be fixed if they want to compete.

Ahhhh, makes sense now. :)

My post may have sounded a bit snooty, sorry. I should have said, the "cheapest" way to keep them in the yard would be monitored chains. You could build ten foot fences and so on, but even then it's not a sure thing.

Would love to see pics of your boys. :)

Oh I understand, wasn't offended :)
I'm a stay at home mom, so they are always monitored anyways, but we live in a city that requires us to have our dogs muzzled when not in a fenced in yard and there is a huge fine if the Humane Society picks up a bully that isn't fixed.
Here are my beloved boys :)

Riley


And here they are snuggling like always!




Our shepherd thinks our pit pup is his baby and he is always following him around and making sure he isn't hurt or in trouble. It's so cute.

First off, I have a special place in my heart for the blue boys. (I'm not biased at all LOL) Second, Riley is absolutely one gorgeous shepherd.
Stupid muzzle laws. I'm glad Central FL is pretty laid back about bull dogs. My boy's even allowed at my local pub. The bartender keeps treats behind the bar just for him. :)
Diesel's gonna be a big boy with those giant feet.

Oh I agree, the blue boys are hard to not fall in love with!
And thank you, I never like shepherds or huskies really, but when I seen Riley, I fell in love with him and he is the absolute perfect dog. He is not at all hyper indoors, took him 2 days to be crate trained and never had an accident in the house. He also picked up sit and down in a day. He's one hell of a dog!
Diesel is my husbands dog and Riley is my dog. We are going to use Riley in weight pulling as well, but just for fun since he is a mutt. I keep telling my husband that my dog is gonna out pull his and it drives him crazy.
We are up here in the midwest (NE) and all the laws are ridiculous! We rent as well and it took us 6 months to find a house that would allow us to have a pitbull.
