GDA13: Training Pit Bulls

Ahhhh Pit Bulls. No dog breed turns more heads, causes more controversy, invokes m0re emotion and is more misunderstood than the Pit Bull.

If you’ve never had a real experience with a Pit, you may be one of the many people out there who don’t understand them and even fear them. While those of us who share our lives with them know the true nature of this beautiful breed.

Pit Bulls are pretty much like every other breed, yet nothing like any other dog. They are built like tanks but are loving and eager to please.
