A Pitbull puppy from 8 to 12 weeks will need about 2 cups of food, divided into equal meals. Female Pitbulls will eat less food than males will, on average. At 3 months, your puppy will need more food, around 3 cups each day, eventually getting up to 4 to 5 cups a day.
I walked inside and got the treat bag and walked back onto the porch. I shook the bag. “Mia, Mia. Come on, Mia.” Mia cocked her head and took off in a sprint toward us. “Food!! Im gonna get me some of that!”
Her stubbornness also shows when I take her with me to do the farm chores in the morning and at night. She is on a leash. When we are leaving an area heading to another, if she thinks she is not finished sniffing around, she will refuse to come and pull to the area where she wants to be. Often getting down to her level and doing puppy calls and kissy sounds will get her to snap out of her focus on the treasure she sniffed out but never got to eat, but often it will not and I have to stand there and wait it out until she realizes shes not going to be able to go where she wants. Its my way or no way. We cannot hang out in the barn all day and I cant just leave her down there. She has to come with me. Especially since more times than not she just wants to eat someone elses poop that she just sniffed out. Oh yes, the power of food.
At 2:50 a.m. Mia yipped in her crate. I went downstairs and opened her crate. Mia didnt stand up. I called her. “Come on, Mia.” Mia still didnt stand up. Hmmmmm. I picked her up and carried her outside. Im already out of bed; lets just see if you have to go before I ignore more yips. Mia peed and pooped. So she did have to go. She was just too sleepy to get up.
Today was 45 degrees and sunny. We spent a lot of time just sitting out in the sun so Mia would learn that outside is a nice place to be. With all the precipitation falling from the sky and the frigid weather since adopting Mia, teaching her to walk out the front door on her own has been challenging. I have been using food, however, when the weather is bad Mia will choose dry and warm over food with cold and/or wet. “Mia, is there something hanging out of your mouth?”
