Raising Spencer the American Blue-Nose Brindle Pit Bull: Socialization at 10 weeks

To the Mountains

Three girls and a man are on a walk down a path with a brown with black and white Boxer and a blue-nose brindle Pit Bull Terrier puppy.

It is important that Spencer is socialized with all types of sights, sounds and smells. We take him up to a house in the mountains so he can experience new things.

We all go for a pack walk. The Pit pup tries really hard to follow us. We let him walk, but when he starts looking tired we carry him. The drive to be with his pack is so strong that he is liable to unhealthily exhaust himself trying to keep up.

He's all Pit when he walks!

Spencer using all his might to follow his pack—look how he totally has the Pit-stride down. "Wait for me!"

Spencer tries to eat a moth cocoon. "Hey! NO!" That's not food, you silly pup!

Spencer the Pit Bull tries to eat rocks. Notice the first time he was corrected the correction was more of a push and the pup didn't respond to it. The second correction was a poke and that did the trick. Notice Bruno the Boxer walking by with his bone.

We all go and look at the child-sized dollhouse. Spencer learns boundaries as he and Bruno are told to stay outside.

A brown with black and white Boxer is laying on a red and blue plaid blanket and next to him is a laying blue-nose brindle Pit Bull Terrier puppy that is eating out of a food bowl.

Look how Bruno lets the pup eat right in front of him, ignoring him. The pup has to eat more times a day than Bruno and this is not the same type of food Bruno eats. We all know about Bruno's skunkish-smelling gas problem, so for the sake of all those around him, Bruno cannot eat Spencer's food. Look how the big guy just lies there, not caring one bit that the pup is eating and he is not. Now that's a good boy, Bruno.

Spencer plays with Bruno in the dog bed. Poor Bruno. Little brothers can be annoying sometimes.

Zerns Farmers Market

We decide to take a drive to Zerns Farmer’s Market. Since we are able to carry Spencer we bring him with us for the socialization. All of the people, noises, new smells and activity are great for him to experience at such a young age.

Spencer stretches his legs for a few minutes.

Spencer had gone for a long pack walk before we came to the market and he was already exhausted. Everyone loved to reach out and pet him. He calmly took in all of the excitement.
