But here’s the thing: being a pit bull owner comes with the responsibility of being a good breed ambassador. There is too much breed-specific legislation, prohibitive insurance policies, and negative press out there. Every dog is a good dog, and deserves a loving, stable home where they can thrive.
I have always had dogs in my life and believe strongly that a good dog is a tired dog. In these videos I have outlined some tips and tricks that have helped me accomplish my daily goal of tiring out my dog. I hope you enjoy and feel free to comment below with any questions!
Picking out the perfect chew for your dog. This can be tricky at times when some have been shown to be harmful and others fall apart very quickly. My favorite for the past 3+ years has been the Himalayan yak milk bones. They last anywhere between 1-2 months depending on the dog.
Antler chews are great for both puppies as well as adult dogs. They are a natural chew and beat your dog gnawing on something they are not suppose to. I would recommend supervising your dogs with these though because they can chip their teeth on them if they chew too hard.
Kongs are a classic toy that is a staple in most dog-parents lives. I choose to use mine as a way to give Cash her daily meals or snack time. We like freezing them because it takes her longer to get through it. There are tons of kong “recipes” online if you are feeling like getting creative with your pup as well.
TJ Maxx has some of the best toys for your pup and they tend to be almost half the price of the ones at pet stores. They carry an abundance of types for all sorts of chewers and their inventory is always changing. It is a great place to go if your pup is a shedder and you’re in need of new toys all the time.
Missoula, MT is full of activities and places to tire out your pup. My two favorite companies to use are Waggn’ indoor dog park and Summit Pups. Both offer full or half day care and are great for socializing.
If you just got a puppy there is also Puppy Playtime at Sit Happens for $5 on Sundays!
