My wife and I have a friend who has asked us to babysit their pitbull/lab mix for a long weekend here at the end of the month, and I'm leary as to whether or not we should do it. Olive is 5mths old, and I believe the pit is 3yrs old. They say she's sweet and shy, but pits can be an unpredictable breed. I read Jen and Ace's post, but it didn't do much to waylay any fears. None of us, including Olive, have met the other dog, but there's a possible plan to this weekend. Tips on what to do to get them ok with each other? Signs we should look for that would make us say "so sorry!"? Any other additional help would be appreciated!
Side note: Olive is well socialized and has only had a problem with an annoying dachshund... but they made up last time. We took her to Fleet Peeples park (a local dog park) the other day after a dog art festival and she seemed timid of the bigger dogs, esp two pits that were there. She mostly stayed on her older sisters hip and learned that she's an excellent first time swimmer! She's an incredibly gregarious puppy who loves to play, and I'm wondering how she'd react if the other dog didn't want too, and also how the other dog would show it...
do we sound concerned enough? lol... thanks in advance!
