Are You Thinking of Making a Pit Bull Part of Your Family?
If so, you may be wondering (worrying?) whether a pit bull is the right dog for you.
There is much to consider when choosing any breed of dog--cost of care, activity level,
grooming requirements and so on.
Pitbull Terrier owners also have to contend with the stigma and controversy surrounding their choice of dog. To be sure, owning a bully breed dog is not for everyone.
With the negative fallout from irresponsible owners and breeders along with the media's voracious appetite for sensationalism, it has become downright difficult to separate the disinformation from the legitimate issues of pitbull ownership
Away from the heat of publicity though, statistics show that
APBT temperament test scores are actually better than any number of dog breeds currently considered "great family pets".
And it has been documented that "bite incidents" are significantly over-reported due to faulty breed identification.
Perhaps you've already fallen for a spud-headed charmer with wide-set eyes
and a clownish personality. What now? How are you going to get him to walk
nicely on a leash? Can he live peaceably with your other pets? With humans?
As a long-time owner and lover of these amazing dogs, I have developed this site...
as a resource for owners and fanciers of pit bull type dogs, and
to provide a balanced view of these lovable dogs to the general public, and
to deliver information on training, adoption and getting the most enjoyment from your relationship with your new (or old) best friend.
