German Shepherd Pitbull mix puppies for Sale
There is no denying that the moment you say that your dog is a German Shepherd Pitbull mix, most people will take a step back without even realizing it. This is no thanks to the barrage of news blasted all over television and the internet saying just how dangerous these two breeds can be, what more a combination of the two. At the end of the day, these misconceptions are unfounded and it is not the dog’s fault that it is ferocious. You can blame its owner for that flaw and not the dog itself. As ferocious as these dogs are portrayed to be, there is no denying that all it takes is tender loving care and good training for them to be the best companions ever known to man.
Things you should know before owning a German Pit:
As its name suggests, it is a cross between a German Shepherd and a Pitbull. Known to canine aficionados as a German Pit, this hybrid dog is certainly an incredible mix of both worlds and if trained right, will make the best guard dogs and playmates.
Shepherd Pits know the difference between play time and rest time and will not bother you with an incessant yearning for attention. Even so, you have to keep in mind that most dogs sized between the medium and large range need plenty of exercise. Take them out for a run, jog or brisk walk twice a day if you can handle it. You can also opt to give them plenty of yard space if you are unable to cater to their active lifestyle. Most owners of this breed say that a lengthy outdoor session once a day will suffice so long as the dog has space to release excess energy throughout the rest of the day. Wearing them out through much needed exercise will keep them from digging holes in the yard, destroying pillows, chewing on shoes and partaking in other troublesome activities in a bid to release all that energy.
How should I groom them?
Like owning any other dog, you have to pay special attention to grooming if you want your dog to look and feel its best. It is not just an appearance issue but a health one as well. Be sure to get your dog used to a grooming routine from a very young age in order to avoid aggression or fear during uncomfortable grooming moments such as nail trimming and ear cleaning. You have to brush your dog’s fur very often to avoid excess shedding, particularly if it takes after the slightly longer-haired German Shepherd.
