#1 – Spend Time With Her

Pit Bulls bond closely to their families and expect to be part of their life in every way possible. This makes them prone to separation anxiety. Pitties need time with the people they love. One of the best ways to keep your Pit Bull happy is just to spend time with her.

#2 – Keep Her Trim

A fat Pit Bull is an unhealthy Pit Bull. They can develop hip dysplasia and knee issues, which excess weight makes worse. And, as they get older, arthritis may also become a problem. Active joints and lean figures will lessen these effects on your Pittie.

#3 – Train Her

One of the ways to combat breed stereotypes and make your dog more welcome in places outside your home is through training. A well-trained Pit Bull goes a long way to dispel breed biase. In addition, the mental stimulation is great for your Pittie. Finally, it gives you two more time together, both in training and if she can go to more places with you. This is will definitely make your Pit Bull happy.
