LMFAO. Nice.


PBN,
Why dont you bring them around here? Let them see people's dogs and the good things they do. Or head out to a show with them so they can see the dogs in action. Good luck!!! :thumbsup:

Pit Bull's are aggressive, dog aggressive. Be honest with yourself and with your parents. Let them know that they were geared towards not being human aggressive due to the fact that the handler was right in there and couldn't have a dog that would bite him. Let them know most dogmen had to use another breed to guard their pit yard because they were too human friendly. But be honest that while he/she may show no dog aggression, it has a 99% chance of winning any fight against a dog, whether it started it or was just defending itself.

I know this is a tad off topic, but why do you ask? Are you still living at home and wanting a dog?

The best way is interaction. I have family members that were super anti pit, until they met my dog. They were nervous at first, but the best way to learn is EXPERIENCE, NOT media.

Tell them about the media and what they portray, how they call these dogs pitbulls, yet there is NO such breed as a pitbull so when they read this crap in the paper they know its a story and usually NOT the truth or it usally some half bred mutt with a larger head so that automatically means its a pitbull.

or you could take another route, ask them if they are racist? thats basically what they are doing, judging somthing they know nothing about.

but the best way is personal interaction, see first hand how sweet and kind this breed really is.

You can also show them history. This dog is known as the nanny dog, not a baby killer. This baby killer crap is what ppl want to here so thats what the media gives them.

i know a lot of people who are anti pit and even just anti dog. if you just bring some well mannered pits or even go to a dog park or show where there are well trained pits and just let them see that pits are great and loyal dogs

Do you have any friends with a well mannered pit bull? Sometimes the easiest way would be to invite your friend to bring over their dog, and let your family meet and interact with it. You could even not tell them right away that it is a pitbull, often people don't know, and just assume it's a lab mix. Once the dog is loving away on them they will see how pits really are.

PBN 08-18-2009 10:58 PM

No none of my friends have any. D:

You could try slapping them around a little and tell them that is what aggression is.
Just throwing an idea out there. LMFAO!

That was more funny than locking them in a room with the dog LOL.

Get a pit bull when you are out on your own. I wouldn't pass the commitment on to noncommittal parents. Pits, and their closely related bretheren, take commitment. I hate playing the role of spoiler but a lot of the current pit bull problems came from people with the best intentions executed poorly.
