How Can You Take Care Of Your Rottweiler Pit Mix?

A rottweiler pit mix is a large dog and they could weight around 100 pounds. That means you need to be extra careful about the diet of the dog. However, just because these are hefty dogs, you can’t expect to feed them constantly and get them fat. Rotties are known to have several health problems like gastric dilation volvulus or gastric torsion and bloating. During the mix, the rottweiler pit mix faces the same issues too. 

A rottweiler pit mix should be fed 4 small meals daily, especially during their formative years. However, when they become 12-18 months, you can shift to 3 meals a day. You also need to make them exercise too. However, you have to schedule the timing of the exercise and diet properly. You should not make them eat an hour before or after exercise.

It is important that you give quality food to your rottweiler pit mix. An adult rottweiler pit mix would require around 1.5g of fat per kg body weight and about 2.62g of protein per kg body weight. Calorie intake would depend on the exercise level too – so, in winter, when your rottweiler pit mix should exercise to keep themselves warm, they should have a lot of calorie intake.

Exercising your rottweiler pit mix 

It is important for this active dog breed to play around. They have high energy levels and require almost an hour of exercise – plus, a bit of additional training as well. However, before going forward, you need to get a permit for keeping a rottweiler pit mix as many municipalities do not allow walking of this dog breed on roads. However, if you can, it is best to keep them on a leash. However, the best thing about this breed is that it can take up the aloofness of the Rottie. They will stay aloof and try to be themselves. That also means that they will not recall any training properly. So, if you have told them to stay away from a trash can, you need to make it doubly sure. Or else, the next day, you might find a rummaged trash can with all the trash lying outside.

Since health is such an important part, you might be wondering if they will naturally go for an exercise. But that does not really happen all the time. Sometimes, they can get lazy and go to their papa’s or mama’s lap. So, you need to work to keep them active as well.
