Well I agree with alll that you say, sounds like ya just reconfirmed what Ive said all along, lol. Yes there is a debate between Am staffs and APBT’s and I think the only reason it exist is because people cannot understand the difference.
On another note, the majority of people with “American Pit Bull Terriers” use them for house pets and show dogs.
for instance this site, www.DownSouthKennels.com – breeds show dogs, period. As opposed to other kennels (that I wont mention) breed for the real qualitites of a Pit Bull.
Now, dont get this confused. I have seen gamedogs, yes gamedogs, not gamebred dogs, at an ADBA show many times! Ive seen Gr. Ch. Machobuck before:
and he is by no means just a show dog.

Gamedogs are slowly becoming extinct. There more and more people just breeding dogs for cute puppies and trying to make a fat buck that it’s hurting honest people with honest kennels. To many people just want to jump in the pit bull business and not learn the necessities needed to run a successful kennel. I think theres not much of a future, it will continue to die down until a select few who honestly beleive in what these dogs are are left. I think “pit bull enthusiast” concentrate to much on BSL( Breed Specific Legislation) and not on the core, heart of what these dogs are.
Long live the true American Pit Bull Terrier

got another comment on the ‘pitbull on chains’ post.
I have atleast 100 pictures of my two sons playing with all of my dogs on chains,.
just becuse there on chains does not in any way make them meaner, or mean that they are mean. I simply do it because my dogs are Pit Bulls, and naturally they dont like other dogs, no matter how much you socialize certain, gamebred dogs, they will never like other dogs, does this mean they wont like humans? NO WAY!
You dont have to socialize dogs to make them nice, a well bred dog will not be human aggressive period. regardless of the circumstances. Like I said before, My dogs dont like each other, its there nature, They love everything else…including the cat that sneaks over at night and walks on my car, lol. just not each other, they werent bred TO like each other.

This is a queation John had.
Hello, I wanted to know if you could tell me at what age is a pitbull full grown or around what age do they stop growing.
I consider a Pit Bull full grown and mature at age 2. They normally stop growing around a year and a half. Hope that helps

If your looking for quality website design for your kennel, I recomend Bulldog Designs & Kennel Page. Both do a great job. Kennel Page’s prices are unbeleivable too!

Studs (aka a good producing male pit bull) are a key element for breeding dogs. IF you just take any old “red” pit bull and breed her to your girl, the chances of a good dog coming out are slim to none. do your research! find out the best bloddline for your dog, and go with it. Breeding quality dogs, and becoming good at it, takes years of expeirence. I suggest you leave breeding to professionals unless your fully prepared to keep every puppy and DO YOUR RESEARCH!
The average stud fee is $400
which isnt bad at all.
So if you want to start your own ‘yard’ or kennel, you go out, buy the best female you can find, line up the dogs papers, like up the dogs performance wise and breed your female to the best stud you can find. Then keep/trade your pups and continue breeding.
thats the very basic idea of creating a solid foundation of dogs. Theres alot more detail involved so feel free to ask questions!

Alot of new people, well, people in general do not beleive in putting a dog on a chain. My input is, if you have only one dog, keep him inside, if you have more than one, put em on a chain.
I dont mean that as in just a chain, my setup is half chains and the other half 20 ft. kennel runs.
I DONT beleive in using monter size chains, there just no reason. Put a nice size chain that your FOR SURE will hold your dog and stick with it.
