The Keeper

Trixie

Trixie, adjusting

“Don’t let her out of the crate for the first four months,” was the stern advice offered by the flinty woman from Angel City Pit Bulls.

“Don’t throw the tennis ball.”

“Don’t let her on the furniture.”

“Don’t let her pull on the leash.”

“Don’t let her get over-stimulated.”

“Don’t let her climb on top of you.”

“Don’t let her cross in front of you on the leash.”

“Make her hold her sit before she leaves the crate or the house.”

“Never let her on the bed.”

Guess how many of these rules failed to last the first week.

  1. “Don’t let her get over-stimulated.”

    “Don’t let her climb on top of you.”

    “Never let her on the bed.”

    Just what are you advocating on your blog? Abstinence?

  2. as in she’s a keeper? or as in we are her keepers? or as in what her previous keeper advised?

  3. All of that advice is given for a reason. If you don’t follow it you run the risk of having a very large and potentially dangerous dog breed trying to rule your household and you. All of those rules are to establish your dominance and your alpha status. Please learn how to train your dog. I love pit bulls, but only the ones with owners who know how to handle them.
