fortunately I've been socializing duke since I've had him, he has never shown aggression towards any dog, he loves dog parks.
Furthermore do you think I would try to set up a play date without being confident that my dog will be behaved or are you concerned that someone on this forum would bring an aggressive dog to meet duke?

Neither of those concerns I'm sure it is the fact that this breed is typically dog aggressive and it can spike at any time no matter the socialization or the experience. Just like with humans there are just some people you don't like. Dogs do this too I think the comment about play dates being a nono was more of a make sure you think things through because this breed is known for the dog aggression. Also people of this forum for the most part are very aware of their own dogs so no they wouldn't bring a DA dog for a "play date". You cannot untrain genetics you can train to avoid in your presence but, then that would make a play date really irrelevant. Please don't leave your dog unattended with another dog if you do have a "play date" also make sure it is in a safe place where if DA did kick in you could break everything up with no backfires on the breeds image. Like for instance would not recommend a dog park. Be cautious just because your dog may not have any tendencies doesn't mean another wont or that your dog or the other dog wont annoy the other.

Very cute pup!! Realistically I think you are doing the right thing trying to find another responsible owner to meet and talk with instead of going to a dog park. I know I am on a bunch of groups on Facebook and one is local where people of like minds are able to talk and plan meet ups. My boy has dog aggression so meeting and walking in a controlled environment is key to help manage it. It's never off leash and always where there won't be off leash dogs. Some of my buddies hang with each other an their dogs are not leashed and their dogs are ok together. Most dogs people own are typically not a pit bull. They are mixes or a whole other breed like an American bully. If you don't know what your dogs history is I can understand why some don't buy into the whole my dog doesn't need friends etc etc. My point is be responsible. I only associate with owners and dogs I feel I can trust. Although my boy is a mutt and BSL is illegal in my state, I know the potential trouble my dog might get into and anyone else would incorrectly label him a pit bull.

Find a local Facebook pit bull group. If not start one. The local one I am on is called B.O.N.E: Bully Owners of New England. Some people suck and refuse to understand the true nature of the breed. Above all you have a dog and every dog is different. Learn your dog. Understand what might happen and be prepared in case anything does. Any animal with teeth can have a bad day. I don't like everyone I meet all the time. Keep in mind dog aggression in general can show anytime from 10 months - 3 years and even older. Just be smart. You don't want to end up as a story in the paper. And stop with the dog parks. Disease. Owners you don't know. Dogs who teach bad manners cause they suck from bad owners. So many other ways to entertain and work your dog

I also think some people don't know their own dog and there are very few I meet to make sure they understand what I am comfortable with. Just be smart about it is all.

You are ABSOLUTELY right. It is a must (even more so with certain breeds) to know your dog's temperament and to be attentive when socializing. It is much easier to say that a dog breed is aggressive and isolate him, than to work with him so that he is well behaved and friendly. You are also right when you say that dog aggression can creep in at any age, and PitBulls have a bad rep. What some people do not realize is that they are great pets and depending on the dog and the owner, can be great for families, including those with children.

Duke's breeders are well recognized and breed their dogs for temperament and size. His original owners had 3 small children in the house and had to give him up because raising a puppy and 3 young children proved to be more than they could handle. It was not because he was aggressive. We are lucky to have such a sweet dog but it is now our job to keep him well mannered and friendly. Currently he has many "play dates" with dogs of all sizes and has not had any issues.

Bottom line: If he were to start showing aggression, we obviously could not continue to socialize him. We also do not want him socialized with aggressive dogs.

Now back to my original post: If you are in staten island and would like to meet up with a responsible "parent" to see if our dogs get along, please feel free to message us. I will work on creating a Facebook group. Thank you Ames, that was a great idea.

Are you suggesting you can breed physical attributes but not mental?
