Re: “Pit Bulls Are In Focus Tomorrow In Two Tucson Events

Right, which is why properly trained pit bulls (true pit bulls and not what the media and public misidentify as pit bulls) scored second only to the golden in temperment testing, only 1% behind 'America's favorite dog.' The traits you all assign to pit bulls is common with ALL terriers - tenacity, shaking instead of clamping, etc. A properly socialized and trained APBT is not human aggressive, though like any terrier, they do have a strong prey drive. So do plott hounds, Jack Russells, Black and Tans, etc. It comes down to education. People treat a dog like a family member, treating it like a child when it isn't, it's an animal and it needs proper training and leadership. This goes for all breeds of dogs. A well train dog with a clear understanding of who is in charge is a happy dog. Our APBT has been attacked while walking by 2 labs, a rottie, a shelty and a golden. Each time he has defered fighting while the other dog got aggressive. Each time the other dog's owner told them to stop but they didn't. The only time our dog responded back was with the golden who dragged him by the throat. He at that point broke free of the golden and body slammed him (no teeth, no biting) across the sidewalk back to his owner and then walked back to me. This is proper training. THIS is showing leadership to your dog. Fighting to the death is unnatural and against evolution. No normal, healthy, WELL BALANCED dog wants to fight.
