"Careful methodological design can overcome these difficulties. A hands-on approach is mandatory for gathering qualitative data from randomly selected groups of pitbulls and non-pitbulls from average environments, over a specified period of time."
you can read numerous books on the subect of fighting, written by the people who fought them. they should be considered history books with actual historical value- i have the first us army handbook and if you think reading about fighting dogs is bad you should read copies of the handbook from google, the things they have said about native americans should change your tune about reading of dog fighting. history is history.
the "pit bull problem" isnt fighting dogs, dog fighters know what they have. its the "fur mommies and daddies" who think its how you raise them because they rescued a mut from the pound without any paperwork and it looked like an apbt
-i discussed this earlier-a heavy linebred dogs pups will always breed true to that parent. the fur mommies dog was most likely gentle because of the other non apbt
parent. these muts end up surprising the owners with a bite to another dog or a human. it isnt the apbt
side biting the human its the other parent, its not the other parent biting the other dog its the apbt
these dogs arent for everyone, theyre high drive and that alone throws many americans for a loop
