Springer Pits are fantastic at tracking scents thanks to the English Springer Spaniel side of them. The Pit Bull side will also appreciate a good tracking game, especially one that is high energy. Begin by trying a few indoor tracking games where it may be easier for your pup to sniff out what they are looking for thanks to familiar scents. Once you move the games outside, your Springer Pit will be challenged even more thanks to all the new, constantly changing outdoor smells. However, the goal is to give your dog a good challenge and keep them excited, active and busy!
A great energy outlet for a Springer Pit is a simple game of tug. These dogs are powerful so hold on to that rope tightly!
It may sound simple but it is essential that a Springer Pit get multiple walks a day. Aim to bring your pup out on the leash two to three times a day. This will make them happier and more well behaved!
