Pit bulls seem like very active dogs. I can't play, or even walk with my dogs. Are they at all suitable for disabled owners?
There’s actually a lot that work as service dogs, so I’m sure they’re suitable for people who are disabled. Some can be hyper just like any other dog, but training should help calm them.
On Pit Bulls & Parolees, I remember 2 people who were disabled that had adopted pit bulls from them. :)
Does anyone want to add on to this?
EDIT: If you can’t walk or play with your dogs, it really helps to have a fenced in yard. But if you don’t have a fence, then I remember Tia saying on an episode that you could get on of those super long leashes, but only use it while someone is outside with the dog.
There are far, far better resources on tumblr for answering these kinds of questions than a fan page. Pit bulls *do* tend to be active dogs, but whether a dog is right for you and your household really depends on the individual dog. I know that I have at least one follower here who has a disability and pit bull dog who is not only her companion, but who anticipates her seizures. I am tagging her in case she knows of any resources she can suggest for how to select a dog that is right for you. I am also tagging a number of tumblrs who are familiar with dog training and can probably help come up with a list of considerations and resources that may be useful to you.
