However, it seems that there is no certain cause to explain this fact, even though some specialists claim that the pigment in the skin is the one to blame. Below you can find a list of some of the most frequently diagnosed skin diseases in blue pitbulls.

1. Seasonal allergies

Seasonal allergies are the most common types of skin problems that blue pitbulls are diagnosed with. These allergies cause the dogs to scratch themselves, sometimes even till harming their skin and developing complications such as severe skin infections. If left untreated, these allergies can lead to really serious conditions.

Allergies can be associated with either common airborne allergens and annual changes in skin growth. Reasons why seasonal allergies are so frequent among blue pitbulls are not known yet.

2. Dry skin

Pitbulls also have the tendency to develop dry skin. Due to extreme dry skin, blue pitbulls can develop areas on the skin that become inflamed and consequently very itchy. If left untreated, the dog will scratch those areas until deeply harming themselves. Due to excessive scratching skin can be removed entirely. This way, infections are very likely to be formed, as well as other health problems.

3. Increased skin sensitivity

Most blue pitbulls have an increased skin sensitivity. When skin is very sensitive, the dog can easily develop negative reactions to insect bites, but also chemicals. Numerous dog soaps or shampoos include chemicals that can irritate the skin of a blue pitbull. The type of chemicals which irritate the dog’s skin may vary from one case to another.

Keeping Blue Pitbulls in Shape

Filed under: Blue Pitbulls - 08 Oct 2012  | Spread the word !

[Facebook] [Twitter]

Blue pitbulls are muscular dogs with a tough reputation. They may be tough, but they sure are far from being as aggressive as people assume they are. On the contrary, they are an affectionate and loving breed, craving human affection and attention. In average, blue pitbulls weigh 35 to 55 pounds. They are also very muscular and have a lot of energy, which requires daily exercise in order to stay healthy, happy, and trouble-free. Here are some things you can do to keep your blue pitbull in shape.

1. Walk your blue pitbull every day

Going out for nice long walks every day is the best way to keep your dog in shape. Puppies should be engaged in shorter walks of 5 to 10 minutes at a time. This is because longer walks can harm their developing bones. However, adult pitbulls can walk longer, up to 5 miles a day.

When walking your blue pit, it is important to keep it on a leash at all time. This will not only prevent it from getting injured, but also from frightening or injuring other people. Remember that even the best trained and most well behaved dogs can get overly excited. Also, it is recommended to take water for your dog to keep it from overheating during the walk. It would be wise not to walk during the hottest part of the day, though. This is not healthy for your dog and neither it is for you.

2. Take your blue pitbull jogging

If you are a runner, take your dog with you the next time you go for a jog and you will enjoy this activity even more now that your four legged friend will join you. Start with short distances and then gradually work your way up to longer runs. Running is a great way of expending some of your pit’s extra energy. If you do not enjoy jogging, try swimming, biking, or whatever other activity you like doing. Just pick one that allows you to bring your dog.

3. Take your blue pitbull hiking

Since blue pitbulls are very strong, being part of the working breed class, they love hard work. Going hiking is an activity that will allow them to “train” hard and develop a beautiful muscular figure. They are also very curious and love to explore new territories, so hiking is just perfect for them.

4. Enroll your blue pitbull in canine sports

There are many canine sports you can enroll your blue pitbull in. Examples include weight pull or disc dog. This will help your dog stay in shape and keep its mind active. Sport will also reinforce your pit’s basic training and provide a way for it to continue learning and be more disciplined.

5. Play with your blue pitbull every day

Blue pitbulls love to be around people. They crave human attention and affection, so playing with them will be like Christmas for them. If you have a yard, take your dog out every day and just play together. If you do not live in a house, take it to the nearest park. Not only will playing give your blue pitbull an outlet for its energy, but it will also help the two of you bond.

Examples of games you could play include fetch and tug-of-war. Your dog will surely excel at these games, since they allow it to burn energy, exercise its mind, and practice instinctive behaviors.

These are great ways to keep your blue pitbull in shape. In addition to exercising, you must also pay attention to your blue pitbull’s diet, though. Incorporating a supreme nutrition diet with a dog food brad that has a high amount of protein is a great idea. Keep these tips in mind and your blue pitbull will look and live good for a very long time.

Here is a video of a beautiful blue pitbull that is surely in great shape.

If you have a blue pitbull puppy or you want to get one, you have to know very well how to train it. If you may think that it’s a complicated process, read the following instructions to make the process easier:

  • Take your blue pitbull puppy to the vet within 72 hours after you adopt it. This is very important because these dogs can easily develop demodex or parvo. Parvo is a contagious disease that affects the young puppies, causing death, while demodex is a type of mange that can cause severe symptoms and even death. You should also follow the shelter protocol for pit bull puppies to avoid such problems. The Shelter Medicine Program claims that blue pitbull puppies should be vaccinated every two weeks up to the age of 18 weeks.

  • Socializing your blue pit bull puppy is very important because it will be confronted with many and various situations, noises, people, animals and many other things. If you think that by isolating your pit bull you will make it more protective of your family, you’re wrong. If your blue pitbull puppy will be confronted with various situations, it will have a better idea of human behaviours.
  • Spay your puppy as soon as your vet allows. This will eliminate or decrease the chance of hormonally-triggered cancers and behaviours.

  • Enrolling it in a blue pitbull puppy kindergarten is also a great idea. Your puppy will benefit from supervised socialization with other dogs and safety. Additionally, your dog will learn to behave well and will be under control all the time. Socialising with other dogs will decrease its potential aggression when it will be more mature.
  • Create interesting games for your blue pitbull puppy. You can teach it to hide and seek toys, people and many other things. Don’t forget to teach your puppy the name of all the people in your house and all its toys. This exercise will train its mind and it will not be bored.
  • Exercise your puppy every day. It’s a must. It will help your dog be healthy and dynamic. Exercising includes off-leash walking and leash walking, no matter if it’s raining or snowing.

  • Weight pulling or other sports of this type have to start only when your vet recommends you. Puppies are too fragile for that, but when they become mature, this is a great idea because blue pitbulls will have a lot of fun. 

During all this process, ensure that your puppy will play only with safe and gentle dogs and toys. Additionally, if you don’t know if your puppy is dominant or not, you can solve this problem by talking to a trainer.
