“You are your worse enemy”
Since: Mar 08

I say it's simple. If you don't like the breed leave them be. If you love the breed take care of them. The arguement will always be out there about pit bulls until the next dog is painted in a bad light. We all have had good and bad experiences with different types of dogs. The question is do we punish all dogs for the actions of few or do we punish those responsible?

Neighbor was walking her lab on the sidewalk and was attacked by a pit who was unleashed in the yard. Lab was on a leash. Same pit attacked the lab and lab owners young daughter 8 months ago. Pit owner blamed the lab. WTF?!?

First of all I totally disagree I have 2 pitbull puppies brother and sister and they are the sweetest dogs ever. I have two kids and they are the biggest babies to them. My girls can lay on them sit on them do anything to them and all they do is lay on there backs. So for you to say they are a dangerous breed is insulting. It all depends on how they are raised and how much socialization they received as a puppy. I am a dog trainer and not one pitbull I have EVER trained has ever been vicious. I have trained them as a puppy and they have been around other dogs, people, and kids. So before you say they should be banned you should know your facts. Most people yes train there dogs to be mean and fight but not everyone does. My dogs do growl when a stranger comes to the door or when my kids are outside and someone comes by them but that is any normal dog protecting. My dogs have never had any issues with aggression towards anyone.

I agree all dogs are animal aggressive honestly. It is all on how you raise your dogs. I have 2 pits and they are the most amazing dogs around my children ever. I am a dog trainer and I have gotten bite by little dogs. I have trained all types of dogs and I have NEVER had an issue with a pit biting a person. It all depends on the socialization of the dog and how you raise it. I am so tired of these people giving pits a bad wrap. I have been bitten 3 times by a dachshound. so does that mean they are aggressive and we should ban them?? My daughter has been bite by a min pin, jack russell but not once by my two pits EVER. People really are starting to piss me off about giving pits a bad name.
