Lately there is a lot of talk about dog parks and other things that we DO NOT do with our Pit Bulls. It got me thinking of a crap load of stuff I cant do anymore with my dog. Things I choose to not do FOR the betterment of my dog and this breed in general. Granted, not all the things I miss were good to start with, BUT, I did em, and I learned not to again where these guys are concerned.

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.

Anyone care to add anything?

hmm lets see you better give up your self doubt because with an american pitbull terrier there will sure be some nasty comments about you and your dog you need to be prepared for this an dont take it to heart.



do not worry with owning an apbt it isnt just rules and guidelines its also about FUN if you want an apbt you better have a love for life and preferrably a need to get out there and work your butt off because if you dont your pit will most likely do it for you i reccomend this breed to outdoorsy very active people because this is a highly athletic wanna go do something all the time breed im sure this breed would drive most couch potatoes crazy unless you luck out and somehow get a lazy pit. again you should not see owning this dog as a hastle or extra work i think it should come naturally to an apbt owner i mean i surely am not new to thi breed by any means but i can say i do everything an apbt owner should do and i know it should come naturally either at first or once you get used to your first pit because i do not even notice myself carrying on the responsabilities of being a pit owner it just happens just like blinking, breathing, changing your clothes brushin g your teeth so on and so forth. i find this is a very loving humorus breed i mean there is not a day that goeas by when my onyx doesnt do something so goofy i ant help but lol.

Ya know I take grizz out to the woods and let him off leash i think thats ok .... Nobody else around. I do agree with everything though it really is just a more demanding dog. Leave them unattended or unsupervised for even a moment and the amount of damage that can occur is 10 fold compared to most other breeds.

yeah but they are little angels when they are sleeping. i say tat because onyx is on the bed sleeping between me and my laptop only got one hand to type he is usig my other arm as a pillow but he looks so sweet and innocent you wouldnt think yesterday he chewed up 6 rolls of paper towls while i was taking a shower! he is usually great around the house alone but he does have his moments cant wait till he fully learns the leave it cue

That's just the way it is. People who can't wrap their mind around that can only hurt the dogs.

I would like to add No more family filled vacations in the fun filled location or hotel of your choice.

You may have to cancel your trip to a place that has bsl or no hotel that will except your dog or you can't take him with you and he will have to stay at a boarding clinic while you are gone

lmao I have 9 dogs I haven't been on vacation in almost 10 years even when it was only 3. Dog shows are my vacations. My poor son wants to go to disney world but we don't have anyone to care for our 9 dogs while we are gone. So I just tell that disney world is overrated lmao

^^Vacation of sorts is eaiser with 1 dog compared to 9 I can only imagine! I think our vacation is going to consist only of going somewhere and doing nothing once we get there but I am okay with that after not seeing Josh for 6 months just being together is good enough...but Josh wants Peanut to come so...as long as we find a pet-friendly hotel :) (of course not in a BSL area)
