Choosing, caring for, and training your Pit Bull from puppy to adult, rescue to old age.
The American Pit Bull Terrier is the “Quarter Horse” of the dog world, a canine athlete known for his incredible versatility. These high-energy, confident and happy dogs love to work, and they want a job to do. The highly intelligent APBT can be trained to excel at nearly any dog sport, and they are dedicated to and love spending time with their human family. Often characterized as comedians, the APBT requires an owner who understands the challenges of the breed and is dedicated to proper socialization and training.
Every book in the DogLife™ series is designed for the life of your dog--chronologically covering puppyhood into adulthood and through the senior years. Written by experts and reviewed by a veterinarian and breeder, DogLife™ books are essential references that feature a spiral bound format, beautiful photographs and an easy to use layout. Plus, a bonus 60-minute DVD demonstrates puppy training, solving problem behaviors and senior health care.
