When you buy blue nose pitbull puppies for sale from a full time kennel, there are a few things you should know up front. You should have access to the dogs whenever you need to, in order to come and evaluate the puppy you’re buying and establish a bond. It’s also good for you to check on the living conditions of the kennel. No puppy should be taken less than ten weeks after its birth.

That helps to ensure the dog is acclimated to people. The rest is up to you, and few things can prepare you for the little balls of energy that are the bully pitbull.

Managing Energy

One key to raising a pitbull is to tire it out. These dogs were bred to be strong and energetic. They are loveable, but they are easily excited. It’s when their excitement is heightened that unintended consequences can happen. To avoid any of these problems, keep your pitbull challenged.

A full-time pitbull breeder typically has lots of land for the dogs to run and play. It’s best if you take your dog to the local dog park, in a space where he can be free of his leash. Toss a ball, let him chase shadows. The more you let him run free, the calmer he’ll be at home with your family.

 Give Your Puppy a Temporary Space

While your puppy learns more about his new home, it’s best if you give him his own space to be free in. This space should be near the home’s center of activity, which will help the dog familiarize himself with your presence. Most people will use the kitchen because it typically has fewer items for a puppy to chew to pieces.

Just be sure to give this area a once-over to remove anything that might hurt the dog. Obvious flags include: chemicals, certain plants, medicines and clutter that can be knocked over.

The Drive Home

If you’re fortunate, the kennel you’ve chosen to purchase from has taken your future pup in the car for a ride. Sometimes, no matter how reputable the kennel, this just isn’t possible. For many puppies, the ride back to you home will be their first in a car. Make sure you drive with a partner so someone can soothe the puppy. If possible, crate the dog. Tire it out by letting it run free around the kennel one last time, then put it in the crate and have someone accompany the puppy during the drive.

If you keep these tips in mind, your puppy will have an easier transition moving into your home.
