A little bit Alaskan Malamute and a little bit American Pit Bull Terrier, this designer breed of dog is truly unique. It is a combination of stamina and loyalty, the desire to cuddle, paired with the love of running free. If you are the proud owners of one of these pups, you may be wondering what games you can play with such an interesting breed of dog. The answer lies here with these great activities geared specifically toward your Alaskan Pit Bull!
Alaskan Pit Bulls are a fiercely loyal breed which stems from the Alaskan Malamute side. These dogs develop strong bonds with their owners and love to get affection and attention from those whom they love. Nothing makes an Alaskan Pit Bull happier than spending time with their people! While this bond may happen organically, there are ways in which you can strengthen and encourage it. Not only will this make your dog happy but it will also help build your own bond with your pup. After all, isn't having a great dog all about developing an everlasting friendship? These games will help you and your dog connect even more deeply.
Alaskan Pit Bulls need exercise, plain and simple. Not only are Alaskan Malamutes known for their endurance but American Pit Bull Terriers are also well known for their need to run. When these two dogs are combined, the need for exercise is obvious. This breed is also tricky since they will get anxious and may act out when not exercised properly. So what should you do? Anything that involves moving! You can run, you can swim, you can jump all around - as long as you are moving, your dog will love it. Of course, your Alaskan Pit Bull will also love if you join them on these adventures (they do love company!) so get ready to get in shape yourself, too!
Alaskan Pit Bulls are a strong breed of dog. While they easily become attached to their owners, they can act out toward others if not trained properly. Avoiding this issue is easy if you tackle the problem from the beginning. Teaching your Alaskan Pit Bull to be social, civil and listen to commands from the first day you bring them home is imperative. Training a young dog to behave is much easier than trying to fix a dog's behavior later on. If your Alaskan Pit Bull knows nothing else other than to be calm and happy, then they will never cause trouble outside your home!
While running and walking with you on a leash is great, there is nothing quite like running free. Let your dog off the leash in a fenced-in area to help them get physical exercise and exercise their spirit
This breed is fantastic at running, jumping and catching which means that Frisbee is the perfect game. Head to a nice big field and throw the disc around for your pup.
Alaskan Pit Bulls are definitely a dog that needs attention. However, whatever love and affection you give them, they are sure to give right back to you. It is best to be active with this breed but, if you are looking for a lifelong friend who will be by your side, happily playing all day, then an Alaskan Pit Bull is what you need. Be prepared to cuddle and be prepared to run when you adopt this designer dog.
