Wow... GAWJUS pictures, of GAWJUS dogs, Becca! It's amazing to see that many well-bred, well-conditioned Pitties in one place. : D Ella would fit right in.

I'm sure it was!
The thing is, even though Ella is dog aggressive, I wonder how she would behave being around THAT many dogs who are just as dog aggressive as she is.
Her head would probably explode.

I'm going to bring her next year to show her in the fun show. It's judge's choice, but instead of judging by standard, they judge simply by which dog they'd choose to bring home if they could. The trophy is, I am NOT exaggerating, 4 feet tall. It looks like a "I have the BEST APBT in the ENTIRE universe" trophy.
What I imagine Ella doing in the ring with ALL those dogs is, she will freak out, lunge, pull, attempt to back out of her collar, and when ALL that doesn't work, she's going to plop down on her butt and look me straight in the face. Because that's how she deals when faced with other dogs she cannot get.

So...it'll be interesting. hahahaha.

Awww! I sooo wish I could've been there. But I had to move from Illinois . I miss my Sadie-boo I had adopted there..

Gorgeous dogs. I really enjoyed them. You take wonderful photos.

Thank you for sharing..

Awesome! Thanks for sharing.

Look at that big ol muzzle on Bobby, and that slick body! He is such a handsome guy, and looks like he loves to pull his poor owner around too. lol.

Great pictures. Loved them all.

That sounds really cool!

Reggin is getting really bad at trying to go after other dogs. I've been working on walking him with a head halter, because I cannot hold him back anymore. He is just too much for me anymore. Yesterday he flipped out over a toy poodle and nearly pulled his halter off. It was a disaster. I would never take him to a show, because he would be too uncontrollable for me and my fiance.

Good luck with the show!!!

They were behaved in the ring, for the most part, but yes, there were quite a few hissy fits because other dogs were present.
And that's ok in ADBA. You're expected, obviously, to have control of your dog, but there is barking, and lunging to some degree on the way in and out of the ring.
Only one dog fight (or was it two?) happened yesterday. And they were not intentional, obviously. Just a couple of owners whose dogs got too close to each other.

But, yes, 99% of owners were walking around with break sticks in their back pockets yesterday.
It's part of the breed.
This post makes me really uncomfortable. I guess I just don't understand how in today's day and age, DA can be considered acceptable, especially in a competition meant to judge the best of the best. I realize that the breed was bred to be that way originally, but it just seems like such a massive fault. I'd personally rather see dogs with underbites or other faults than ones with DA.

Please be careful with the head halter. If he is trying to go after other dogs, he can injure his neck, also I wouldnt trust nylon with a plastic buckle (assuming that what its made out of)

There are dog fights in all dog shows, APBT or not. DA is acceptable as long as its controllable (respecting the dogs boundaries). Expecting a DA or DR breed to get along with others is unfair to the dog, and a safety issue to handlers.
