American Super Dog is recruiting talented Pit Bulls for America's Got Talent and a TV series in the works. We are looking for general videos of Pit Bulls and especially videos of Pit Bulls with talent. If you have a Pit Bull video we encourage you to submit at American Super Dog. Prizes will be awarded. Please help spread the word as well. This is a huge opportunity to bring wide spread positive exposure to the American Pit Bull Terrier breed.

We are additionally looking for those who train dogs professionally. If you are a professional recognized trainer and can provide a video training a Pit Bull we are offering a special opportunity to place a free banner on your behalf to help spread the news of your training resources. American Super Dog will be placing special focus on trainers as part of the TV series and will be using trainers from this initial pool of participants. After submitting a training video please use the Contact us link to let us know you are a trainer and provide us the direct link to your video and we will provide details on how you can have your free banner placed.

iv got pictures of my dog doing some very crazy stunts... does that count?

well... Ill post them anyways.

Bunny is a 4 year old american pit bull terrier of traditional lines. she weighs 35 lbs in show shape.

she resembles a lot of the pit bulls "back in the day"

she competes in weight pulling and is currently in advanced OB classes.
I teach her tricks and stunts on my free time. I still to this day cannot find a stunt or trick she will not pull off.

bunny understands a lot of english words, she even tries to comunicate through "talking" if her water bowl is empty she will try and soubnd out a two word sylibol sounding like "wa-ter" if I guess what she wants wrong she will huff and puff, if I guess right she will give out an excited bark! she also does this with "outside" and dinner time.

I also taught her to "say mama" at 4 months of age. the youngest dog I have yet to see and train pull it off yet.

this dog is extremly versitile and her trainability is through the roof! which is why im posting her up.

im not sure if I would be classified as a professional trainer, but i do attend shows and train my dogs for sports event's. when I can help soemone learn about training a dog ill be all over it.

shes the center of attention when i have guest's over and has changed peoples minds about pit bulls.

here are some pics of "bunny" full of character and zest.


she pulled this- (sit, stay)



a huge dock about 15 feet above water, that just come off the mountain (melted snow)







I taught bunny to go over to the diving board (which is hard plastic) jump off and swim across the pool to the stairs on the other side.







weight pulling- she will pull anything, cart, on dirt, car... anything



"bunny... whats that?" ...*curious*



poses-



character-



stay (smiles)





dives underwater- for rocks, logs ect.





humorous character-





show off-



silly-







goofy pics-





she will jump off anything, here is one of her fav clay banks, she dusts me out pretty good!





running machine-



bunny posing with my mom.





dress up- smiles







chirstmas '10 I wanted to try a new trick for a picture, I had picked up a hard plastic candy cane. and come up with the idea that I would put bunny in a gift box with tissue paper and get her to hold the candy cane in her mouth for the picture.
we practiced for a few days and gave it a try!
my in-laws were so proud of her! to me,.. it seemed like it was a breeze for her.





loves kids-





climbs tree's





advanced OB class-

lay down stay


heal-





here is a video clip I put together of bunny... I havnt really video'd too much of her, more so took pictures.

Bunny is the exact kind of Pit we are looking for and I think she would make an excellent candidate for both the TV series and America's Got Talent.

We loved the pics but unfortunately we need video as this is for broadcast purposes. If you can take some extra video especially of the special talents I think she would be very well received.

Any video you would like to provide we more than welcome. The video actually has to be loaded to the site though as we have to be able to verify ownership for copyright purposes, we need to be able to download the video directly for editing for the TV series, and it has to be easily available to the America's Got Talent rep. for their consideration.

If you go to your YouTube account in the top right after you log in there is a button with your account name and a little down arrow. If you click on that then select the "My Videos" option it will take you to a list of your videos. Beside each video there is a set of buttons that say: Edit | Insight | Down Arrow. If you select the down arrow it will let you re-download your video to your computer so you can then upload it as an MP4 to our sight at at www.AmericanSuperDog.com

If uploading them to our site gives you a problem let us know. We just set it up last week and are actually still in the process of some formatting and polish up work.

Thanks for the positive feedback. To get things going with the production company we have to show there is genuine interest in the project. The more vids we can show them the more they are apt to invest and the better the opportunity for syndication.

Sincerely,
American Super Dog

Bunny does look awesome. Any way you can provide vids. of yours? Even short clips. I know we are all somewhat bias about our Pits but the chances are if you think it is cute, funny or shows talent the odds are other people will to.

is there a way to upload from youtube? my computer crashed and and all I ahave are youtube videos right now.
I can sure sympathize with you there. My family computer crashed and we lost 16 years worth of Family photos, baptisms, birthdays, vacations, graduations, videos and a bunch of other info. When it happens it is kind of like a death in the family.

The benefit to this is that in a way it is like a small backup that you can retrieve when disasters like this happen.

We can not offer a YouTube linkup unfortunately. The video actually has to be loaded to the site as we have to be able to verify ownership for copyright purposes, we need to be able to download the video directly for editing for the TV series, and it has to be easily available to the America's Got Talent rep. for their consideration. A YouTube link up does not allow us to do these other than for America's Got Talent.

If you have troubles with the YouTube download let us know and maybe we could think of another option.

Yeah it can really be anything. AGT is looking for special talents but the TV series will have a sport focus but will have other aspects that will include training, humor, service work, education on BSL and more. The greater variety of videos we get the more variety we can consider for production.

In some cases we will be using video provided and others we will be taking the videos and contacting people directly for additional footage, possible guest appearances, etc.

We are not really encouraging things like hangtime/springpole or Shutzhund work yet. We believe these are great Pit Bull activities but unfortunately for those ignorant on the breed (which will be many of the first time viewers) and possibly wanting to target it in a negative way (such as politicians supporting BSL) this gives them ammunition to say junk like "that could be a kid" or "no wonder if they lock their jaws on you..." We hope that as the TV series grows we can then introduce these kind of activities in a more positive light but we have to first work on promoting their image in the most positive manner possible.

Hope this helps and would love for you to participate. The more people participate the more we can show the production company the support it has and the more they will be willing to invest in it in terms of development and ongoing production support.

Phoenix sounds great. Anything positive showing Pits and kids is great. Such video will help the general public understand that the Pit Bull is not the child killer so many politicians and others with warped agendas would have everyone to believe.

In regards to the Pit/Lab mix we could not use him as the show is about the pure bred Pit Bull breed specifically. There are other shows that work with other breeds and mixes and this one will be unique in that it will be just the Pit Bull specifically.

One of the goals is to show the breed is a recognized pure breed. There are too many "supposed" resources and research studies out there that say things like Pit Bull type and Pit mix. We do appreciate you saying it is a Pit/Lab as such resources and research do not care to elaborate on this and give the appearance that the Pit Bull is not a pure breed but instead a type of dog. Some will even outright say this. The end result is that any mix bred dog that has brindle in it that bites a child gets classified as a Pit Bull type or a Pit Bull mix (regardless if it even has Pit or not in it) and gives politicians the ammunition they need to propose Breed Specific Legislation without making a clear definition within the law of what they are effectively banning.

If such resources are going to refer to a Pit mix then they should refer also to what it is mixed with - as you have - or simply refer to it as a mix. Referring to the Pit part (Pit mix, Pit Bull Type) alone makes the assumption that if something bad does happen then of course it is the Pit part that was the problem. Statistics through the CDC, JAVMA, Clifford Report and others bear this out where the Pit Bull reported data is way skewed from reality thus helping to perpetuate a bad and undeserved myth on the breed and falsely supporting BSL especially in court cases where it is challenged.

Sounds great. No problem on the answers, we probably should have addressed this sooner anyway. Sorry if it was a let down but as a Pit Bull owner you probably understand our motivation anyway.
