As you said best temperaments so people orientated, i love my pitt kisses , especially if you spend the time training and socialising them properly.

    No crates are a rip LOL! With the crate, can you block off part of it to start off with so your pup can only access a small amount? That will help to stop him (?) from going to the toilet in there. No wouldn't put the kitty litter/dog litter box in there. Have it near your backdoor or in your confinement area (here is some info on why confinement training is good, click the link and watch the videos)
    TheUrbanPuppy's Channel - YouTube
    Have a look at all the videos they are super helpful.

    The 2nd hand toys is a good idea and one I use as well (but I did get some good soft toys from woolies for like 3 bucks each once). And yep definitely check out amazon really amazing prices.

    Sorry if I am being overwhelming, I teach puppy classes and so I sort of get verbal diarrhea when it comes to puppies.
    No Not at all im very much grateful for the response im getting, yes I must admit I was not a big fan of pitty's until I met Nala... she is now like my child and It makes me so so sooo sad to hear of all these pit bulls which have just been raised in the wrong hands. I have a maltese terrier at my folks place.. tried to introduce nala to Milly (the maltese) not a good idea turns out Milly has little dog syndrome and nala has tail between the legs syndrome...but she is wonderful I have a photo of her with my pet ducks..she actually took on mother roll it was very cute.

    I know how good would they be together!! I know a bunch of Pitt owners down your way though Hopefully I will get to come down for a visit soon.

    Haha pocket rocket, describes Phi when she gets zoomies perfectly. To the point that sometimes I have to close my eyes I am afraid she will hit something! Actually in the last week she has smashed her knee like 3 times!

    BAHAHAHAHA mmmm I know exactly what you mean alll to well, all you need to do is mention "Walk" to Nala and she will do circles for as long as you let her. They are quite a comical breed I believe haha, people say Dallys are a class clown.... they obviously have not met an excited pitty haha.

    And it is at Drummoyne vet clinic.
    I think im going to go with this one, they seem pretty good and they are close . The puppies are trained indoors the reason I was given was that because the pups have usually only had one vaccine at that stage the floors need to be cleaned and sterilized.
    Is this common practice??

    In a Vet Clinic, yes you would want the floors to have been cleaned and sterilized because you have sick dogs going in and out all day.

    Where we run our classes it isnt a big deal, it is undercover but not indoors. But we are the only people who use the facilities for dogs.

    I liked the look of that one as well. Ask if you can go and sit in one of their classes before you go, just to make sure you are happy with them and their methods for training.

    Yeap that sounds like a good idea, they are fairly cheap too $180 for a 5 week course, then there is a stage 1 class which is at the local park.. hopefully when push comes to shov they deliver....at the stage 1 and onwards they do not allow check chains??..... when i was younger I was told to use a check chain on our other dally... what are the benifits of a check chain and are flat collars just as effective??

    A lot of R+/P+ trainers do not use check chains at all, because their training is all rewards based and no corrections. (I work with and am training as an R+/P+ trainer). In our classes dogs are not allowed to be on check chains or anything similar either.

    Personally I don't like check chains for a variety of reasons. I certainly wouldn't use one on a Dally. Unless you have a problem dog (I would hope not as a pup) I see no reason to start them out on a check chain immediately.
