Expert scientific studies prove that the jaws of Pit Bulls are no different than any other breed of dog. There is no evidence that any kind of locking mechanism exists in the American Pit Bull Terrier or any other related dog breed including wolves.

Dog fights are over when one of the dogs cannot continue, because the dog is either dead or is too injured to move. The injuries these dogs suffer after a fight, often includes shock, broken bones, blood...

It is very difficult to get an accurate count in dog bite statistics because most of the time they are not reported and if they are reported it is often not known what the breed of dog is.

Assuming the snapping is a puppy-style snap and not an I-want-to-kill-you snap, you can say NO in a command tone and you can yelp when nipped. Yelping almost always causes them to ease up, they still "bite" but it is much more gentle. Puppies also bite because they are teething and their teeth hurt....

The puppy is fed on a tight schedule. Free feeding a puppy is bad news and without this set schedule of feeding potty training will be a lot harder.

The first walks are to teach the puppy how to walk right. AS SOON AS he puts tension on the leash, turn 180 degrees from the direction he is pulling and walk briskly in the new direction, using the command "with me". When he turns to follow you, praise him ("good with me") and give him a treat. As...
They look completely different! . They both are very misunderstood- thought to be dangerous, aggressive dogs, but if you've ever heard of a "mean" bulldog or pitbull, its because the owner did a bad job. There's no such thing as a bad dog, only a bad owner. Also, there's no such thing as a "Pit...

The pit bull is the most abused breed of dog on the planet. Mostpeople don't like them because they are considered 'dangerous'. Butit is not the dog's fault if they lash out at you; they are mostlikely like that because they were abused in some way previously.
Fighting pit bulls involves chaining young dogs with the heaviest chains possible to make them strong and ''harden'' them. Then their ears are cropped (cut off) to make them look tougher and to stop the ears from being torn off. After that, a stray dog is caught, muzzled and tied up for use as a...

Puppies, no matter the breed, will "bite". It is a teething action. You need to correct the action, and redirect it to something that it can chew on. My Aunt had a great idea that I used with my dog, when she was a pup. Take your dry dog food, and a can of wet dog food (preferably the same brand...
