bonliveson is an unknown quantity at this point
i have had just one pit, and as far as worrying about her biting...that's laughable! my pup absolutely LOVED all people, and the majority of people that approached us petted her without hesitation. once i got to a certain point with her, she also had the run of the house when i was gone, and the only issues were with blankets being on the floor. as far as the dog park goes, it was always other dogs that wouldn't leave her alone that prompted me to take my dog and go. not sure if i was lucky or good, but i expect that when i get my next pup, things will be the same.

Bonliveson, I just have to say that just because your dog is friendly with people, doesn't mean you should trust your dog won't bite. Remember, your dog has a mind of its own, and will eventually think for itself at some point.

It takes diligence to own this breed. Not every dog is easy going and soft when it comes to temperament or personality. As zohawn said, if you don't want your dog to do what it was bred to do, then simply don't put it in that situation.

I do have to say though, from the way you talk (your dog loved everybody), you've obviously never had your dog to alert you of someone who wasn't a good person (untrustworthy). The saying about "liking dogs better than people" rings very true. Dogs will tell you when someone is dishonest and that person wouldn't admit to it. My boy hasn't liked my neighbor since he first met him, and my dog was on point with letting me know this guy can't be trusted. Trust me, when a dog tells you a person is no good, you should listen.

I 100% agree that apbt's should be kept out of certain situations so as to not set them up for failure, but I also find it a little crazy to always expect your apbt pup to bite someone. as a kid, my parents raised 2 pits who never even growled at them. we had a yellow lab that bit through my dads hand once. my friend had a chiuaua that always tried to snap and was mean all the time. its not just this breed. even if sharing a breed, every single dog has their own personality. raise your pup the best you can and use your best judgement on the situations you put them into. you are ultimately the one responsible for the outcome. I only hbreed post this because a lot of these comments (not only on this thread) have almost scared me away from my own pup! thinking about how everyone else feels about something shouldn't be a factor in your own decision. I've gotten some amazing advice from this site and most people are extremely helpful, but I dont want anyone to be scared out of owning this breed!

We don't necessarily worry about them biting someONE, rather than someone's dog. But some people are just stupid and will deliberately goad dogs, trying to get a reaction. So really, it's not a matter of not trusting your dog, but not trusting other people.

I NEVER go anywhere out of state without my pups. The wife and I got Jade with the mindset that she would never be ditched by her owners ever again. Even if it was for less than a week. Not gonna happen. And when we got Jaxx, we follow that principal with them both.
