So called “Pit Bull” Advocates are getting their undies in a twist over Petsmarts policy of not allowing Bully breed into their daycamp.

Do people not realize that Bully Breeds, especially APBT’s are prone to dog aggression? Petsmart is doing the right thing in not allowing bull breeds into the program for the safety of other dogs. 

Bull breeds start fights in doggy camps all the time…granted so do dogs of other breeds and mixes but the difference is that once an APBT or related breeds start a fight they often will not stop until the other dog is dead. 

Look what happened last week I believe when the Bully mix managed to get free and attacked a smaller dog, resulting in the dog getting stabbed and PTS.

What would happen if a Bull breed suddenly decided that it does not like a dog in the camp and attacks it? 

So all the “Pit Bull” advocates need to take a step back, read up on the History of the APBT and use their heads. Dog aggression is a common genetic trait in APBTs and mixes. 

Petsmart is not against Bully Breeds, they are merely trying to be responsible and keep dogs in the program safe from the possibility of getting attacked by possible dog aggressive Bulldogs. 

10 Signs You May Not Be Ready for a Pit Bull

10 Signs You May Not Be Ready for a Pit Bull posted by Pit Bulls Against Misinformation @ pitbulltruth.org

  1. You think dog aggression (aggression towards other dogs) is a result of mistreatment or special training designed to “make” a dog aggressive.
  2. You often repeat “only 1 in 600 Pit Bulls will make it out of the shelter ALIVE!” but are not able to produce any evidence to back that number.
  3. You assume that someone is an irresponsible owner simply because they have an intact dog.
  4. You believe the ONLY way to keep a dog is loose in the house, snoozing on the couch with a Chihuahua, Bichon, or 3 week old human baby nestled snugly under its neck and o-m-g-all-the-cute-vids-you-can-post-on-youtube-showing-how-vicious-your-little-dog-is-to-your-pibble.
  5. If a person of color wearing saggy pants walks by with a Pit Bull wearing a spiked collar, you whip out your phone and report them for dog fighting.
  6. The mere mention of weight pull sends you into a tizzy of rage over “abused” dogs.
  7. You firmly believe that raw feeding leads to mauling humans.
  8. It’s all in how you raise them” is used so often by you, it’s on your clipboard.
  9. You think dog shows are nothing more than a meeting place for people to arrange dog fights.
  10. Your knowledge of the APBT comes mainly from reality tv shows.

Pit Bulls were NEVER known as “nanny Dogs”. 

No child should ever be left in the care of a dog, no matter what breed.

Be responsible with your pets and children.

Stop the spread of this lie.

Edit: Because some people are getting their undies in a twist due to this drawing.

Pit Bull’s are great with kids, there is no denying that BUT they are DOGS and things can and do happen to kids if they are left alone with a dog even if it’s just for a few minutes. Kids like to pull, poke, hit, jump etc on dogs and some dogs wont just sit there and take the abuse.

When people see Pit Bulls being called “Nanny Dogs” they may think it’s ok to leave their kid alone with the dog in the same room while they do things around the house. This is NOT ok, no sane responsible parent will leave a child alone with an animal like this. 

This drawing is poking fun at the “Nanny Dog” Myth.

People need to stop blowing this out of proportion.
