Here are a few tidbits from a thread on Facebook from another trainer who specializes in Pit Bulls, is a major contributor to the Pit Bull support forum and just an all around great lady !!
Hello stupid people, when you get a pit bull puppy from a sketchy situation and call me for advice, please don't ignore that advice. When I suggest heavy socialization, offer puppy kindergarten, and impress upon you why proper obedience is a must, do you even realize how much it angers me AND rips my guts out when you do none of that yet call me a year later to dump that dog because he's now "aggressive"?? Ugh.
And all the Comments...
Train your dogs, SOCIALIZE your dogs, don't breed indiscriminately. The only real way to get rid of the public and media perception of pit bulls is to give them no fodder for their propaganda mills. Don't give them incidents they can sensationalize and make $$$ off of.
