A Few Dogs I Admire

November 30, 2006

ZEMG Network
An oustanding producer. In many modern pedigrees.
Grand Champion Art
Grand Champion Art
A phenominal dog all the way around.
Grandh Champion Zebo
Grand Champion Zebo
One of my favorites by far. Zebo is a perfect example of how breeding to good dogs together, doesnt make good dogs. altough he was a ROM, todays Zebo dogs dont have much to show.


Breeding For Color

November 26, 2006

A huge NO! I here people ALL THE TIME say “whoa that dog is an awesome red color, he’d make awesome pups with my red nose dog.” These dogs, in the beginning, were bred for performance. The best was bred to the best, PERIOD. I dread hearingpeople talk about breeding dogs for color. To many people jump in to quick and don’t wanna learn.

Giving Dogs Scrap Food From The Table

November 23, 2006

This applies mainly for all the ‘inside’ pits out there. 😉
I highly dont recomend this. First, Alot of bones found in meats cant choke a dog and cause splinters inside the dogs mouth. Second, it just isnt good for them. They make dog food for a reason. I never give any of my dogs scraps. If you dont from the begining, they won’t beg later on in life. Someimes I do mix in some scrambled eggs or crush vitamins to go into there food.

Happy Thanksgiving by the way.

If anyone has any questions, please feel free to comment or E-Mail me.

The Bigger The Mouth, The Harder The Bite!

November 16, 2006

A dog with a large head & hard bite!
People say this all the time. Its not true at all. I’ve seen dogs with greyhound type heads bite down to the bone on a hog before. I will quote (I believe) Earl Tudor on this one, after his infamous match. “My dog bit hard ’cause he wanted to bite hard.” That’s what it is plain and simple. Now don’t get me wrong, If both dogs want to bite hard, but one dog has a larger head to house larger jaw muscles, then perhaps he could bit a bit harder. Of course that’s just in theory.

Hog Hunting

November 14, 2006

I think hog hunting is a great activity you can do with your pit. Its gives your Pit the exercise, passion, and everything else it want to do without you breaking any laws(*different areas have different laws). I suggest you start your pup on something small, hyper, and that will continue to run, run, and run some more. If it’s running, generally your Dog will chase it. If you get something that stand off-ish. Your Pit may act differently than you want it.

Pit Bulls As Protective Dogs

November 10, 2006

A comment inspired this one.
Yes, a Pit Bull can be used for protection purposes. Is it the best dog for the job? NO. Also, just cause your Pit hits the end of his leash when someone strange comes around, or barks at every damn thing in site, doesn’t make it a “guard” dog. Did you know 85% of dogs WILL not attack someone if your being harmed? They have to be trained to that stuff.

Oki so lets summarize this.
A Rott was bred, for many years, to be a GREAT guard dog. So in turn it makes him easy to train, and it almost come natural to him to “guard”

A Pit Bull was bred for sporting events, like fighting, competitive events, and hunting. So that all comes natural to them. A VERY BIG misconception is “you have to train a dog to fight.” This is very un-untrue. 95% of time, it comes natural to them.

Rappers and Pits…

November 9, 2006

I personally dont think they mix. Again, its an IMAGE. I sometimes wish to go back in time, when this dog was the most beloved pet in America. When people were proud to own an American Pit Bull Terrier. I seen a huge, 100+ blue on the cover of a magazine with a rapper (who I wont say) and it just disgusted me. We need a more positive image, like pits with kids. Perhaps someone will start a free or low cost magazine…. Pits’ n’ Kidz’
