    I think having a dog that is NOT human aggressive is idea for protection in public. I would rather train a dog to do some thing rather than try to train OUT a behaior (human aggressive) to take in public. My dog is not looking for trouble but he will turn it one with one word.

    I believe you have a great dog. Why did you chose a pit and not a breed meant and bred for the purpose?

    rocksteady I'll drink to that..

    simply because alot of the dogs "Bred for" this type of work arent always suited for this type of work. IF you take 20 German shepards all bred for "protection" maybe 10 will make it to the training. And out of those 10, maybe 5 will make it through training.

    In the right hands, the right trainer who knows what to look for in a dog, the APBT excells in schutzhund, not to mention usually out preforms the Rottis and shepards. The problem is not to many people who take on the task know what they are doing and create more problems than good..

    For people that's supposed to be so crazy about APBT's, some of you seem to be selling them short. They are very intelligent animals and are capable of a whole lot more than weight pulling, fighting dogs, hogs and looking pretty in a show. They are awsome dogs and are capable of doing more than you all are giving them credit for. That includes "protection" and "service" animals. The strength, stamina and temprament of an APBT alone... how could you ask for a better working dog??? I think you all are making them out to be vicious killers by YOUR words. Other people are trying to show the world they can be useful and gentle beast.

    No PamJ...the reason most every condones the job is not that APBT's CANT do it....its that we believe they SHOULDNT. The reasons for believing this differ....I will say mine is people see well trained APBT's like this and not the training that goes into it. Then you get idiots who do ghetto, unstable, bite work and say its "protection trained". The negatives for the breed as a whole greatly exceed the positives (IMO) gained by doing this.

    "Protection" is not the same as "service". I dont think anyone has a problem with these dogs acting in search and rescue, leader dogs, drug or bomb detection dogs, companion dogs, utility dogs, even hearding dogs..

    Like 14Rock stated, these dogs were not ment to be attack or "protection" dogs. Far to many people are thinking they are training sound dogs (of any bree) out of their backyard when they are not (there is no requirement for being a dog trainer, an obeidence instructor, and attack dog trainer.. allthough some organizations have criteria and the trainer must be certified with them to train their dogs ) Other than that, joe blow can pic a mutt off the street, "train it" and say its a trained attack dog..

    far to many people already want these dogs so they can simply look cool or tough or show off their "bad ass pitt thats mean "

    I do agree with you that there are idiots that are "training" their dogs in their yards or what ever and are doing the dogs damage, but there are also people who are doing it the right way and going to legitamate clubs and working with their dogs. These places stress obedience above all, and socialization of your animal. You not only have to be able to work with it at home but in places that your animal is unfamiliar with. This starts when your dog is 7 and 8 weeks old. I think the more people bad mouth the APBT, the more people should show them they are wrong, and they ARE wrong. There is nothing these dogs should be held back from, IMO.
    And yes, a lot of people are walking around with a pit bull so they can say "HEY LOOK AT ME... I HAVE A TWO INCH PENIS!!!"

    Why cant he chose a pit? Why take the pit to conformation shows or weight pulls he wasnt bred for that. I think its great that he chose a pit and if i was doin the same thing im sure i couldnt have any other dog take the pits place. When the first conformation/weight pull shows were started by real dogmen others laughed, but if it were not for these shows where would the pit be now???????

    Quite a few of us, do know what we are talking about here. I train in all methods & have for over 16yrs. This type of training is dangerous, and it's going to end up as a bad situation, sooner or later. Our dogs have a bad rap already, and do not need more due to this kind of training. When I send out a dog for work, it's not out there to hurt anyone, or kill. This shows me clearly, that it will have a bad out come if, the dog does not take command to stop. What if, the so-called trainer thought he could train his dog, and it ended up in a bad predicament. Oh sorry, won't cut it. So, what questions were you talking about, that we should ask? Do we dare?
