    A rockwiler sounds like some sort of sausage??

    Never leave your Pit Bull unsupervised with other dogs, get the pets in your home altered. Watch their body language and for jealousy. Never trust your Pit Bull not to fight, always have at least two breaking sticks. Feed your dogs seperatly. Establish dominance, you're the alpha and their pecking order should follow. Get opposite sexes.

    Speaking of breaking sticks.... What are they exactly and where do you get them. This is the probably the concept that I fear most.... Having to use a breaking stick. I've read about them but....

    A breaking stick is a wedge shaped piece of wood (or sometimes other material) that is slipped between the dogs molars and giving a quick twist opens their jaws to you can release a hold. You can get them from breeders, dog shows, and online.

    Also you should give them a lot of time and attention. Make sure to reward for good behavior and teach things early as possible. When they are young and begging for that treat they learn quickly how to get what they want! But I guess its different with every dog. I taught Shianne how 'sit' and 'shake' in one day. 'Speak' took me about 2-3 days. Its harder to teach her now.... im working on 'stay'. She knows sit, speak, shake, "get in your bed", "go in your room", "wanna go outside?", and "lets go get some water" lol she runs to the kitchen ....
    I want to teach her to fetch but she just gets the toy and runs around the yard with it like crazy! And shes getting better at stay.

    But anyway, goodluck with your new doggie!
    Sorry for goin on and on about Shianne!

    Your welcome, its better to start asking questions and researching as early as possible.

    No its probably not okay, as inbreeding can cause problems with the offspring. Some inbreeding produces sound, good dogs, but the majority has high risk for problems because you are increases like genetic make up. Inbreeding increases the good and bad, so any health issues and recessive problems the parents might have will be multiplied and the offspring will inherit. So it depends a lot on the situation and in most its not ok.

    Hi I have 2 females Rott Weiler and A female Pit.
    My Rottie is 4 years old very dosile but as they said before never leave these 2 dogs unattended at any time, When I go to the store Mystical goes in doggy creat and Queeny MY Rotty who has manners and is able to be in the house unattened for short spans is left out with in the home!
    MY Rotty tends to mother the pit cleaning her grooming her, They are like mother and daughter my ROtty is fixed but my Pit is not! I do plan to get her fixed also!
    But for now she is to young!
    Both my pit and my rotty sleep in my bed as my husband works some nights I am more comfortable with them in the same room with me when I sleep!
    I wish you the same luck I have had so far they are 2 very special family members to us and we love them like they are our children.
    YOu show yours the same love and you will get best results!

    Unless you plan to show her before fixing her, it would be better to go ahead and have her spayed now. The less heats she goes through, the better for her. And if you can spay her before her 1st heat, even better. Just a thought.
