Dunno what most of you think, but as for me, working in an animal shelter, I've seen pits from both extremes, good and bad.

The bad pits showed aggression to people and animals. Almost all came from bad home, drug dealers, drunkards, macho wannabe teenagers, people who want a cheap security system and dun like animals.

The good ones were the most suckiest dog's I've ever met. Most were my favs. But one same common thing was being dominant over other dogs and some aggression. But of course there were exceptions to all these extremes.

The breed was meant to be dog aggressive (dog fighting). Hence they've become to rely upon their human family as their packs. More so than other breeds. IMO, a pit who's dog aggressive is behaving as it should (whether acceptable or not) but a pit who's human aggressive needs to be looked at again.

Just my two cents.

Thumbs up Anubis...

Anubis is my 10 month old 100lb Rotti and I have proven without a shadow of a doubt that proper training from birth and socialization is so important. We took him to my daughter's school everyday of his life and let 15-30 kids play and pet him. With this breed you must never let them become the alpha male of the house. My eight year old daughter has more control over him than an adult would.

Every night on our walks people physically cross the street when they see us coming. I always shout out to people that he is harmless as they go by. In actual fact he has been harassed by more smaller dogs who have tried to bite him while he is sitting quietly than he would even raise a nose at! Everytime we go to a lease free park other dogs snarl and bark at him and try to dominate him while he just sits there and takes it. Of course if he ever decided to defend himself you all know who would get in trouble. Me.

I have trained him exactly the way I would expect him to behave. He is as gentle as Rottweiler's go and he would protect anyone in my family especially my daughter to his death.

The one thing that is good about all this is people in my neibourhood are taking notice of how good Anubis is and they are asking a lot of questions and I think that this is a good start to informing people on how to train their dogs properly.



It's a real shame about all this muzzle ***t. Especially if you are a caring owner who has done everything right. Unfortunately too many ***holes have ruined it for a lot of people.

I don't know if any of you have heard this but a couple of weeks ago I heard that airlines won't allow Rottweiler's, Pit Bulls or Bulls of any kind, and German Shepards on planes anymore. Another thing we can thank all those bad owners for as well.

Sorry I've got quite a lot to say about this stuff!

Have a good night everyone.

James

I gotta wonder why they wouldn't allow the dogs on a plane? They'd be in kennels in the pet cargo hold anyway...it'd be impossible for the dog to get loose and go on a runabout...it doesn't make any sense....

pits

hey, i can never pass up a good APBT discussion, i have 4, 2 stud dogs, 1 brood *****, and a good ol neutered family dog, well they're all family dogs, but you know. anyways i noticed a few posts about people saying, the age old saying "it's all in how you raise them" and it's true it is, but i'd love to see one of these good owner good dog people, train a full fledged game bred APBT to be a friendly good canine citizen. don't get me wrong i don't support dog fighting at all, but with APBT more than any other breed out there, genetics has 99% to do with what the dogs going to be like, tonka, my youngest male, he's an 66% OFRN 33% Youngs, anyways he's been socialized his whole life, dog park, daycare, letting all types of people and kids pet him on the street, but if he's around another male dog, and that male shows any signs of aggression, then all socialization and frienliness is out the window he's the nastiest dog you'd ever see. yet if that male came over and licked him on the face they'd play all day, and all the training i do, can't get that out of him, anyways, i could go on and on and on and on about history, training, blah blah, but the gist is, breed specific bans are bulls*** punish the individual not the breed. if people were only smart enough to, control their dogs there would never be bites, never, someone can't say any excuse to me as to why their dog would bite someone, there is no excuse, if your dog is a threat take percausions or your going to lose your dog simple as that, sorry for the essay
ps. two of my dogs, have their CGC (canine good citizen) and are obidience titled)
