No more dog parks.
No more walking without a leash.
No more letting the dog outside alone.
No more allowing my dog to just play with another dog worry free.
No more walks without being mindful of my environment.
No more laid back attitude about bad habits.
No more easy teachings.
No more community love for my dog.
No more letting my dog have the run of the house.
No more letting other dogs come visit.
No more taking them to the park and letting them run.
No more taking for granted that they wont fight.
No more taking for granted that they wont bite.
No more lazy attitude where alpha position is concerned.

With these dogs comes HUGE responsibility and I honestly had NO idea how much easier it was to own almost ANY other dog as opposed to these guys. I think thats why I love them so much.. they aint easy, in any way, shape or form. IF you want to be a responsible owner, you MUST readjust your way of thinking.


I find this very true!!!!!!!!!! Alot of these things I had to just accept....like no more letting my dog run free without a lease.....I sure hate it but it is a very important responsibility. With that said, I also took my dog for granted and I have had the mentality that he wont bite or fight......but I know in the back of my mind that this is not the case.

My pits NEVER do any thing wrong.
I've taken my female to parks and let strangers pet her, and my pits run free all over the yard and never attack any one or hurt neighborhood dogs.(which there are plenty of)
They come when they're called and do what they're told.
I've never had any of the problems you've listed above..

Never have doesn't mean that they never will. Some dogs can go their entire lives and nothing bad could ever happen, but why give them the opportunity? With BSL jumping at every chance to take our breed away from us why even set your dogs up in a situation where they could fail? Whether or not you think they ever could?

Agree with that 100%! (grew up with gsd, they're a handful too)

I will not allow my dogs to become victoms of circumstance or victoms to their own breed! I will not set my dogs up for failure!

Ah, I miss Marty... He was no nonsense & straight to the point... Never trailed off topic & easily interpreted.

Everyone says how difficult these dogs are to own. If you hold your ground & stick to the rules these are the easiest dogs to own... So easy to train & so quick to please. One of the most loving breeds & easy to love

Anyone care to add anything?
This is a list for owners who have no control of their dog. If you have a dog who thinks he/she runs things, you need to put him/her into submissive mode. You can't do this if you're scared of your dog or under powered, sometimes they will refuse to go down and you have to put them down hard; place your forearm on the neck and hold the body with your other hand, maintaining this position until they calm down and understand you run things. The strong, stubborn ones will try to wiggle out, but you must apply more pressure and put your body weight on them. If you can't get them in this mode, you will not be able to train them or have them obey your commands.

Oh jesus lord you have been watching the Dog Whisper too much I see. Bulldogs don't belong anywhere near a dog park. You can't control genetics you can avoid situations that would allow those genetics to surface. A bulldog was bred to fight dog aggression can be monitored and controlled by means of prevention. You should always be one step ahead of a bulldog once they get a head of you that's it you lost I don't care who you are.

Um no regardless of what your imagination is telling you about these dogs, they should not be doing many of those things list. Hopefully no one listens to you on how to handle there dogs either because that is no way at all to assert your self as leader. Thats a quick way to ruin a good dog.

In fact No Breed should be doing most of these things.

From the posts I have seen from you it seems you need to be doing way more researching and educating yourself before offering advice to others.

Wow, that's a pretty huge list. I don't take my dogs to dog parks. I've been into Malinois and Dutch Shepherds since 1993 and just got my first Pitbull puppy last month. I will treat her like I have always treated my Malinois;love, attention, control, exercise, and vigilance when I take them on a walk and when they meet new people and animals. House wise, she's a puppy and she is caged when i can't or don't feel like supervising her every move. Now I have a Malinois and a Pitbull, they are fun to take on walks and fun to live with.

There are better ways to establish the "alpha" position than that outdated way described above. Think "Iron hand in a velvet glove".
