Training And Exercise For Pitbull And Rottweiler Puppies
Being a highly active breed, these pups need daily mental and physical exercise. One hour every day must be spent in running or walking. You can train them to jump higher because they are natural jumpers. Also, they can be trained from an early age to pull weights.

Otherwise, your pup won’t accept your leadership easily. That being said, if trained well from a young age, they make great companions.
Taking Care Of Your Pitweiler
They usually are not heavy shedders (a sigh of relief!) and their coat is easy to brush. A few brushings a week will suffice for most of the year. During the shedding season, however, a brush per day would be recommended.
Brush their teeth about 4 times per week. It is essential to take care of your pup’s oral health. Bathe them every once in a while to keep the coat clean.
