American Pit Bull Terrier
The American Pit Bull Terrier, known as the Pit Bull Terrier or simply the Pit Bull, is one of two breeds descended from the Staffordshire Terrier. Pit bulls were originally bred for dog fights. The owners needed only victories, and therefore the animals that were most valued were strong, stubborn, hardy and aggressive. Hence the stories about the bloodthirstiness of these dogs. Pit Bull Terrier is a muscular, mobile dog with powerful jaws and low sensitivity to pain. The nature of this breed depends solely on the method of education. An inexperienced dog breeder, a gambling and indefatigable pit bull will “crush” by himself, and he will reciprocate an excessively aggressive one. With the right training tactics, these are obedient and peaceful dogs, from which excellent watchmen, bodyguards, companions and athletes are obtained.
Each owner wants to see his dog healthy, active and cheerful.
And, as you know, the basis of health is a proper, complete and balanced diet. Even if you purchase the freshest and highest-quality products, buy vitamins and mineral supplements, without a biochemical laboratory you cannot determine the exact nutritional value of the food you cook at home. That’s why PEDIGREE® has developed a special app that helps you evaluate how your pet’s diet meets its needs.
Proper nutrition in the first year of a puppy’s life largely determines how healthy and joyful your puppy will be in the future. Caring for the health of your pet, PEDIGREE® recommends a combination of dry and wet rations, which allows you to fully utilize the benefits of both. You can read more about this in the article.
