hi everybody

Postby welshdean » Fri Aug 17, 2012 3:35 pm

Hi everyone,

I would just like to give a quick introduction about myself. I'm 28 years of age and have recently taken in a 6 month old black pitbull boy. I've never owned a pit before but have always appreciated the breed. My two previous dogs were rottweilers and before that I had a staffordshire bull terrier. I feel as though the previous owners of my new boy, Jake, have neglected him as far as education goes. So I'm here to learn a few things to bring him up the beat way that I can so he can have a great life with my other cross breed.

So that's me....

Thanks for taking the time to read

Can anybody explain how this works please. I know I have to make an introduction but nobody is replying so I can't make any other posts. Is this correct ? If so, how am I supposed to learn if I can't make any posts in different sections.

Cheers

Welcome! I'm glad you're here looking for help/advice! I somehow missed your first post. A mod will come thru to approve you soon. They usually stroll thru every 2 days in this section...as all the mods are volunteers here. In the mean time, read all of the stickys at the tops of all the sections to get yourself started. That's where most of the good solid training advice and such is anyway. Once you get approved and have read the stickys feel free to post a thread asking for help/guidance.

Hi Curly,

Thanks for the reply.
I wasn't sure how it worked here. I need to post a topic in the behaviour section but as you know, I can't.
Is it suitable for me to post it in here to try and get a response as I can't seem to find the answer to my dilemma .

Cheers

You can, but not many members frequent this section, so you may not receive any replies or the best advice needed. We also like the topics to be posted in the correct sections in the case someone else has your same situation in the future they will see how/what to do.

Can you tell us more about yourself? Hobbies? Goals for your dog and yourself? The mods want to know these things before approving members. Helps us know you, and at the same time it cuts back on people looking to do more harm than good to the forum. This is the best forum I've ever been on! It has taught me tons and helped me be a better owner and person :)

Thanks for the advice.

Well here's a little more about myself
I'm 28 years of age and live in the UK. I do not want to disclose which area but as you can tell from my username, I am Welsh .
I have lived in the UK all my life and live with my girlfriend, and we've been together for nearly 8 years.
My hobbies include keeping fit, fishing and socialising. I have had dogs all my life and nearly two years ago, I lost my beloved rottie due to kidney failure, he was only 5 years of age aswell.
About 6 months later I adopted an 8 week old boy rottie. I also have a pitbull cross breed who is female and still with me til this day.
Unfortunately, 4 months ago I was delivered very bad news that my partner has cancer. I knew that having an 8 month old rottweiler was just too much to have around my partner . She was away from home quite often for weeks on end having chemotherapy and when she came home, he was just far too boisterous . I very sadly had to regimes him due to the fact he was far too big and I couldn't risk having a dog of that size around my partner.
Because of this I didn't want to leave my other dog without company.
I knew somebody who was getting rid of a 6 month old male pitbull. I went to see him and saw that he was very skinny and dirty. I felt sorry for him and knew I could give him a good home. So I took him in.
First thing was first, nice clean bath. Then a decent meal and time for him to get some rest.

Well the people I got him off didn't set him any boundaries or educate him atall. Apart from the command "sit".
Well I've taught him to walk on the lead correctly, "stay" and also got him to go to toilet when I instruct him to .

My problem is that he still goes to the toilet in the house.
Not all the time but about 30% during the day.
At night time the dogs have their own room to sleep in. It's an empty room about 8 feet x 9 feet. That does not have carpet but is tiled.
Well over the night time he uses it as a place to go to toilet, its not every night just a few times a week.

I'm clueless as to why he is doing this and really need to correct this behaviour. It's been 4 weeks now and he has only learnt a little bit.

Any help would be much appreciated.
