Now that you know what they look like, act like and the potential liabilities, let us take a look at what it is like in general having a pitwee as a house pet. That way you know exactly what you will be dealing with to avoid any unhappy surprises.
To help you out, here is a summary of what life with a dachshund pitbull mix will involve:
Socialization is a part of the program
Pitwees are notoriously edgy when in unfamiliar environments or around new people and animals. In order to avoid any nasty incidents, you will have to be intentional with your socialization plan.
Take them out more often and get them comfortable with new people and places.
That way they will not feel threatened and get aggressive when confronted with the unfamiliar.
Learn the art of patience
Dachshund pitbull mixes are very stubborn. This will be annoying to deal with whether you want to train them or you just need some peace and quiet in the house.
Fortunately, they are clever little doggies and with smart effort, time and patience they will learn how to be more civil.
You need to keep up with the energy
These dogs love nothing more than being active. So part of the pitwee parent lifestyle is keeping up with this energy.
A walk here or game of fetch there is necessary not only for bonding but also to calm down the constantly angsty dog.
They are generally low maintenance
Finally, you will be pleased to learn that these dogs are generally pretty low maintenance. Just love them, invest in playtime and be a little patient.
With their minimal grooming needs and few health problems, you shouldn’t have too much on your plate to deal with.
