As I have indicated on my Pit Bull main webpage on this website, Pit bulls are a particularly dangerous dog breed because they have extremely powerful jaws for dogs their size. You add that they have extreme neck muscles, almost resembling a walking jaw with short, stocky legs. I have said that if you buy a Pit Bull as a family pet, it is almost like putting a shark in your family swimming pool! 

Now, these jaws can easily crush hard tissue like human bone and inflict severe and significant long-term tissue damage – however, these powerful dogs can also tear and rip flesh and soft tissue beyond hope of repair or healing – research some of the pictures you can find on the internet for a few examples of this ripping type biting pit bulls are famous for when they attack.  The harm these animals can cause is not limited to physical trauma or injuries; very often, Pit Bull victims of Pit Bull attacks carry psychological scars that last a lifetime. Again, it is due to the “way” the Pit Bull attacks – they twist and turn their heads while biting down with extreme force. I liken it to a crocodile attack!

Sir, just because a dog bite can cause harm, there are an infinite number of events that lead up to one. By using the word "inherently" (existing in someone or something as a permanent and inseparable element), you are saying that a bite must happen if the dog is a Pit Bull. I am sure you can look up the data to realize how many Pit Bulls live their entire, natural lives without ever biting.

By pitbull, I am guessing that you mean American Pit Bull Terrier? Or do you refer in general to any dog with bully breed characteristics? Then I wonder what the purpose is of this attack on one particular dog breed. Obviously, all dogs are capable of biting humans, some do, most don't. This applies equally to APBTs. Just because a dog has the capability to cause harm, doesn't mean it will. I'm guessing you don't go around saying that having a car in the family garage is like having a shark in the swimming pool? Have you seen what a car can do to a person in an accident? There's some crushed bone and nasty tissue tears for you.

Does Breeding Impact a Dog’s Behavior? Share 55 Facebook 50 Twitter 5 Email Print By Nicole Pajer Over the years, domestic dogs have been bred to showcase certain appearances. Through this process of selective breeding, a variety of breeds —from the tiny Chihuahua to the towering Great Dane — have been created. According to a recent study, selective breeding of domestic dogs not only alters the way a dog physically looks, but also drives major internal changes in canine brain structure. Scientists from the University of New South Wales and the University of Sydney conducted a one-of-a-kind study, which revealed that in the process of breeding domestic dogs, the position of the canine skull has shifted as well. This is a result of humans selectively breeding for different skull lengths to create various breeds. To determine this, Michael Valenzuela from the University of New South Wales and a team of researchers performed MRI scans on the brains of two English springer spaniels, as well as eleven euthanized dogs, which were donated to the study by a local pound. The batch of donated dogs included a range of breeds, such as an Akita cross, mastiff cross, Staffordshire bull terrier, Shih Tzu cross, greyhound, Maltese, Jack Russell terrier, Australian cattle dog, and a pit bull mix. The MRI brain scans revealed that the dogs with the shortest skulls — the Shih Tzu cross, pit bull mix, and Akita — showed a significant reorganization of the location of the brain through breeding. In these short-snouted breeds, the cerebral hemispheres of the brain were rotated forward by up to 15 degrees. In addition, the brain’s olfactory lobes, which work to process smell, had shifted position in these breeds, moving from the front to near the back of the skull. According to Valenzuela and his team, the brains of these short-snouted dogs do not sit inside the skull cavity in the same manner as the brains of longer nosed dogs, whose brains appear to be closer to those of the domestic dog’s early wolf ancestors. Valenzuela says the study reveals “strong and independent correlations between the size and shape of a dog's skull, brain rotation and the positioning of the olfactory lobe. As a dog's head or skull shape becomes foreshortened — more pug-like — the brain rotates forward and the smell centre of the brain drifts further down to the lowest position in the skull.” The study’s co-author, University of Sydney associate professor Paul McGreevy, stated that the study’s findings strongly suggest that one dog’s world of smell may be very different than another’s, and that this change alone could affect how domesticated dogs perceive their environments. The authors noted that this might in fact alter a dog’s personality and behavior, and they encourage people to be responsible when selectively breeding dogs. Valenzuela and McGreevy plan to conduct future research as to how exactly these changes in canine brain positioning affect a dog’s brain function and what the impact is on its behavior. Read more:

Yap the write-up is quite well. But you should also know this: 1. Become steady. Utilize the identical cue regarding identical control, every time. If you utilize "come" seven days, "come here" another and also "come the following, boy" these, you are going to befuddle the dog. If the dog will be able to allow to take around the leash at times yet will be jerked from the dog collar any time this individual brings with some other instances, you are going to befuddle your pet. Ensure every person that is about the dog uses the identical principles and also makes use of the identical cues. a couple of. Utilize reward and also returns. Virtually all modern day dog instructors believe dogs understand far better and also more quickly once we reward and also prize these to get that proper, as opposed to penalizing these to get that completely wrong. The most effective motivator can be quite a mix of a tiny foods treat--especially in the event you educate just before mealtime--and excited reward. Will not get worried you will end up using a dog that will simply benefit foods. When the dog receives thinking of just what you might be inquiring your pet to accomplish, you are going to commence gratifying your pet erratically, and in the end it is possible to period out there the particular snacks totally. If the dog just isn't in which enthusiastic about foods, test supplying reward minus the handle, or even a favored plaything, or even a actual prize for instance a excellent behind-the-ears scuff or perhaps stomach caress. If you'd like a lot more that you should I would recommend this amazing site:
