Introduction

The Bullypit is a cross between the American Bulldog and the American Pitbull Terrier, which happen to be two of the biggest and most athletic breeds around. Although not considered a purebred in classification, it is counted as a part of the terrier group. While there is no way of telling the exact temperament of each unique Bullypit, this breed generally retains most of the qualities of its parents, particularly skills in tracking, guarding and agility. Bullypits are similar to “fitness enthusiasts” because of their desire to always move and spend time outdoors. Hence, they need an owner who will take them out, give them ample time to exercise and help them stay satisfied.

Activity description

One of the most recommended activities for any Pitbull or Bully type of breed is the spring pole. It works just as well for the Bullypit, since this breed boasts a muscular build as well. The ultimate “muscle building” machine, particularly for the jaw and neck, the spring pole is a great tool for passing time and entertaining Bullypits. If you own this breed, then consider this equipment as an investment. Simulating the “tug-of-war” action, spring poles will keep your dog tugging, swinging and pulling. Another good thing is that this item is readily available in most pet stores. Additionally, you can even build your own using materials found in your local hardware store. 

Step
1
Buy or produce a spring pole
If you want your Bullypit to get started with a spring pole, you naturally have to own one first. Luckily, the spring pole is available in virtually any pet store. In case you cannot find it in your usual pet shop, you can always make one on your own. You will simply need a rope, a swivel eye tie snap, a porch spring and some quick links. You will also need something that your pooch can bite into, such as a piece of burlap, a tire or a toy. Attach the snap, quick links and springs together then attach the toy to the quick link at the end. You can also find several online tutorials on how to create a spring pole.
Step
2
Play with the pole
Once you’ve put together the pole, tie the rope and hang it from a tree or any sturdy object that is above the ground. However, you have to make sure that it is not hanging too far off the ground for your dog to reach. Get your dog’s attention toward the spring pole. Slowly, your dog will try to jump up and bite into the pole. You may use positive reinforcement to motivate your pooch to play some more.

Activity description

If there are top two things that a Bullypit enjoys, it would be moving around and being in the outdoors. Moreover, any dog would love to spend some quality time hanging out with their owners. What if you can put together all these things in one activity? It is actually possible through some trail running. As the name suggests, this activity involves jogging through a trail with your dog in tow. You can try this in most national parks or forests, as long as dogs are allowed in the area. It is a great form of exercise not just for yourself but also for your Bullypit. 

Step
1
Get your dog checked
While Bullypits are generally fit to do an activity such as trail running, it pays to make a trip to your veterinarian to have your dog checked before going for runs. Make sure that your dog is healthy and fit enough, especially if you plan to run longer distances on a regular basis.
Step
2
Buy the appropriate gear
Similar to all other sports, trail running requires certain types of gear. Before you go shopping, take some factors into consideration. For instance, will you be running year-round? Also, where will you go running regularly? These questions are all useful in helping you decide what type of gear you will buy. Generally, you will need a sturdy leash for your dog. If you don’t feel like holding on to a leash while you run, you can also buy a belt with a leash strapped on it so you can go hands-free. Some protection for your dog’s feet will also be needed.
Step
3
Do some running
Once your dog gets a clean bill of health and you have everything you need, the only thing left to do is go on your trail run. Find a dog-friendly trail where you can jog. Remember to take things slow and to not overwork your dog right away, especially if it’s the first time for them to go trail running. Also, bring plenty of water to keep your pooch hydrated. Most importantly, don’t forget to clean up your dog’s waste.

Activity description

When it comes to walking, it is always more fun to go with friends. Dogs probably prefer the same, too, especially since an hour-long walk can easily turn boring. Why not take a regular stroll around the neighborhood and turn it into a more exciting “pack walk” for your pooch? As much as your dog loves you, it would also be beneficial for them to be in the presence of other canines. Gather some of your dog’s canine friends and their humans for a fun bonding and get-together. Not only does this activity serve as a way to burn energy, it can also serve as a form of socialization for your Bullypit. 

Step
1
Choose your "pack"
When organizing your pack walk, you first have to choose the participants. If you have friends who are dog owners, you can invite them to go on the walk. You can also ask neighbors or even some members of a local canine club if they would be interested in doing regular “pack walks” for the dogs.
Step
2
Find a dog-friendly place for a walk
Once you find some doggy friends for your Bullypit, the next step would be to look for a dog-friendly place where you can go on a stroll. A good choice would be a dog park, which happens to be a neutral setting for all the dogs. Make sure that your pooch is on a leash at all times and watch the dogs’ attitude toward each other to prevent any aggressive behavior.

Swimming

Bullypits will also enjoy burning off some calories while swimming. Whether it is in a pool, a lake or the beach, you can spend hot summer days with your pooch in the water. You can even bring some floating toys which your dog can play with. Just make sure that your dog is safe at all times. Equip your pooch with a flotation device before getting in the water.

Frisbee

The Bullypit is an agile breed that is made for lots of movement, which is why they will definitely enjoy a game of Frisbee. This sport encourages running, catching, jumping and a certain level of concentration, making it a great all-around activity for your pooch. 

Conclusion

The Bullypit is a special hybrid dog that loves to be on the move. They need regular exercise and physical and mental stimulation so that they can stay happy. This also helps prevent the onset of any unwanted behavior. As such, this breed is perfect for those who live an active lifestyle and love to spend time outdoors.
