The fact that my dog can carry his own water and even his food, makes Bruno a viable asset in my ability to survive a SHTF scenario. Pit Bulls Are A Healthy Breed Pit Bulls are generally a healthy breed, but they are susceptible to the same ailments as most other large breed dogs.“The Pit Bull is a strong, muscular dog, with good skeletal formation, but like all dogs can be prone to hip dysplasia, a hereditary defect in the joint between the hip and hind legs.” (1) Most of these issues can be diagnosed and addressed early on in the Pit Bulls life.However in most cases, once the Pit Bull has done its job by notifying their owner of a stranger approaching… The Pit Bull will continue to pursue the victim with a serious tongue lashing and a few hugs. Luckily, this is one of the facets of working on Preparedness that my Pit Bull, Bruno, really enjoys.Not only is this an important characteristic for your dog to have, so that he does not become a liability, but it also helps him get and remain in excellent physical condition.We had the other 2 dogs for years and to say that they are both territorial is an understatement.Bruno arrived, was much bigger than the other 2 dogs but realized that he was outranked by the other 2 dogs. I believed the hype of how the breed could never be trusted due to their killer instinct. We were still in our “courting” stage and I wanted to impress her so I agreed to volunteer at this event.
Just like other dogs and even people, Pit Bulls need to be hydrated so be sure to take frequent water breaks and keep that water purifier on you at all times.Bruno did what he could to fit in but it took a while for him to be accepted into the pack.(still not sure the Jack Russell has fully accepted him yet) As Bruno grew and became 4x larger than the other dogs, he still maintained the respect and his position in the pack order.This is an aspect of preparedness that many forget to include in their personal plan, let alone planning for their dog. Pit Bulls Want To Be Family The Pit Bull will easily assimilate into your family/tribe/group.Good nutrition and exercise will keep your Pit Bull healthy and prepared for whatever mission that you throw at them. They want to belong and will do what they can to fit in.
