To Joe in Albany. Do not listen to Z. Pits are not supposed to be bathed frequently unless they get themselves dirty by rolling in dirt or mud, or get other filth on them. The best thing with a Pitty is to brush them everyday or at least every other. It gets rid of the dead fur which may be what smells. If need be by a nice dry shampoo. Its a spray on shampoo than you spray on and just towel off. If your dog gets wet alot and especially when your not brushing to remove the dead fur they can start to stink a bit. DO NOT bathe your pit once a month.

To Joe in Albany: Your pit puppy doesn't smell because of the dog food. Every dog is different as are people. Give your puppy a bath once a week and see how he smells and than you can determine after that how often to bathe your puppy! :)

I have a pitbull almost 3. yrs old and he hates his toenails being touched, so fortget about clipping them. You will definitely have a new face!!!!!!!!!!!! He has to be muzzled @ the vets and yes it does cost more!! Wish I would have known sooner to touch his paws more often as a puppy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Definitely get the dog used to the nail clippers as soon as possible! I don't think any dog likes getting its nails clipped. Even dogs that wouldn't care if you pulled its tail and poked it in the eye get antsy when you touch their feet. It's a dog thing. My current dog (obtained as an adult) is a Border Collie and has learned to tolerate nail clipping for the treats involved...she's a one person job. But years ago when I had a Bull Terrier, it was definitely a two person job, with the assistant holding on to the dog with a death grip. It was either that or somebody was going to lose finger!
