There are some important points that should be keep in mind before starting the exercise
physical with our APBT … 1) It is important that our dog is healthy,
free of diseases of any kind: infections bacterial, parasites (internal or external),
injuries, diarrhea and dehydration, in short everything that affects your body and
physiology Take disability into account physical at the time of training … 2) The food we give him, must be
of good quality, and controlled in its quantity and proportions. It is important to reduce
excess fat, and give a progressive contribution of carbohydrates according to the exercise,
and a good quality and quantity of proteins. We must reduce fats by limiting
movements, and hinder breathing, besides adding a dead weight. 3) It is important that the dog is developed
physically, that is, physically mature. While it completes its growth near the
2 years, you can start before, having careful, not subjecting him to violent exercises,
or excesses of efforts. We can compromise the development if we do it. The first exercise
and fundamental for the puppy is the game, mainly with other puppies. Since
very young age feels the natural need to explore the world around you, sharpen
and enhance your basic primary instincts which is supposed to be given in adulthood,
the qualities necessary for survival. The hunting instinct encourages the dog to pursue
everything that moves with the intention to run after their prey to feed.
The puppy will chase, by reflex, any object that we throw, any
animal that runs, or any of its brothers of litter. The instinct of prey arises by
the need of the adult animal to grab to his prey, kill him and subsequently
devour it We can see how he wakes up this sense in the puppy to see him grab,
Through the game, any cloth or teether that when you move it, awaken a desire in it
to catch him. When a puppy plays with another, it keeps waking up
his instincts, in this case dominance. The game is nothing more than a combat level
of minimal aggressiveness, which have the mission of teaching the puppy the techniques
precise for a real confrontation in the adulthood. If you look, when two puppies
or young dogs play, their movements and body language are the same as a
Real fight but without aggressive load. All these games are adequate and necessary
for the puppy to develop its structure bone and muscle. We should not force the puppy
or young dog, whose development has not ended, and subject him to violent physical exercises,
Well, we run the risk of causing some injury which in some cases can be irreparable. We must not fall into the error of continually force
the prey in a puppy, nor running distances large, or force him to jump, much less
force him to drag the slightest weight. His bones at that age are weak and
in the process of formation; it is necessary to wait to be consolidated. It is important not to force a dog
to do something he does not want, this is “lethal” speaking in popular terms today in
day. A dog genetically predisposed to a
hip displeasure or a prognathism, if is brutally subjected to this puppy
type of exercises, will accuse your condition with more intensity. Therefore we must leave
to the puppy that he rations his level of exercises through natural game. We will differentiate two types of basic exercises … 1) Those that enhance your muscle mass. 2) Those that will strengthen your physical resistance. The most complete exercise is to swim,
But you must be careful. At the beginning some dogs do not want to get in the water, and when
are not used to swimming, you can choke, or cramp. That’s why when you throw him
a little ball to the water to bring it, we must throw a small one that is easy for him
grab and bring, not a soccer ball it’s going to cost a lot to bring it up
US. The second most complete exercise is that of
run. We must carry a consistent speed with what we want exactly that our
pit work. The ideal is a step that is not Run, if not walk fast. The dog does not
it must run at more than 20 km per hour. For avoid injuries before starting any
exercise our pit must have muscles hot … just make him run 5-10
minutes, at a free and changing pace. Can happen when you make it run, your legs will
they hurt, more in the cement of the streets, and even more if the strap pulls when
we go by bike. In this case We recommend stopping the dog for a couple of days,
and apply an antiseptic and healing ointment Consider the following exercises:
– little time and fast work and increase your muscle mass A good APBT, is not that
which is full of muscles … this takes away agility, mobility, speed,
It makes it hard, it does not work that way. – more time and slowly it increases its physical resistance.
So the dog runs and does not get tired, this is fundamental in a good dog physically prepared. Exercises for the HEAD. Tug of war.
Unlike other exercises that are based only in capturing without letting go, the tug of war
it’s a much more positive activity since allows us to work the “deja”, that is,
teach the dog to release objects. We can use a teether or knot type toy
that we grab on both sides, while the dog nibbles in the center. Dam.
The important muscles are the masseters and the front. To train them you have to have
a tree or beam, we tie with a rope a rag or a bike or bike cover that does not
serve more, so that our APBT prey in it and try to start it. The correct height
will be the one that our pit can support hind legs on the floor. If we put him
a pulley, in such a way that we throw from one end of the rope, and at the other end
Is the rag or cover, then it will be Better yet, we give it movement. We will practice this exercise 1 or 2 times
per week and for a maximum time of 15 minutes. In a short time the APBT will develop
some good masseters and you’ll see that the Central channel of the head will be
more pronounced and his pressure on the bite it will have increased. We recommend alternating the prey exercise
with the pull and loosen since, unlike of tug-of-war, the exercise of prey,
does not teach the dog to release objects, which can cause a very serious situation in
case of a fight between two dogs. In addition, it is usually motivated to
dog to achieve increasingly more goals high Due to its own constitution and
weight, the impact of the fall can cause serious joint injuries that
predispose the dog to develop certain diseases, such as artitis and osteoarthritis. Exercises for CHEST AND SHOULDERS. If the dog runs downhill, it develops
the chest. Another exercise to develop chest and shoulders would make drag weight.
If you do not have a cart prepared for this end, we can take advantage of tires
of cars, construction planks or drums, etc. Trawl training with exessive weights
is totally inadvisable since the load of very high weights damages the joints
and the musculature of can. It can propitiate the appearance of injuries and even breakage
of bones in very extreme cases. Exercises for REAR ROOMS Here, unlike the previous exercise,
we will make uphill to our pit, developing all the rear train when doing push on
the earth. The ideal would be to have a treadmill, a treadmill and lift it from behind
or ahead according to what muscles we want to work. All the exercises previously exposed
have to be exchanged for our APBT have a homogeneous musculature. General purpose exercises. Exercises with obstacles.
Agility is a very complete sport that It stimulates the dog’s mind and body. Although
in this sport at a competitive level more agile races, like the border collie
or the Australian sheep herder, the truth is that the pit bull can play all
tasks excellently if you train him on regular basis. The Agility circuit, whether home or in
a center, offers the possibility of stimulating the musculature of different parts of the body,
either by jumping fences, tunnel, slalom, walkways or wheels. There are many possibilities. As it is a minimally complex route,
the dog must learn how to overcome the different obstacles next to its owner, what
that helps you keep your mind active and to follow the orders of your guide, one way
excellent to improve our bond and rapport.
