    I guess we'll agree to disagree. Pitbull owners, please load up on your insurance and don't let them out of your sight. The statistics are right there in plain daylight to see...

    Pitbulls in the news

    OK... "American Staffordshire Terriers" are listed at #65, below the ever popular Whippet. Your point? It would make sense that people would be desperate to get ride of their beast-hounds as soon as they realize how dangerous they are.

    Pitbulls in the news

    How is looking at basic statistics "closed-minded"? How is reading Centers for Disease Control's per-reviewed Morbidity and Mortality Report, filling my mind with "garbage". I'm simply stating undisputed facts. If you care to believe in the fantasy of peaceful and safe pitbulls, that's your...

    Pitbulls in the news

    Yes, and did you know that when ice cream sales are the highest, the rate of drownings is also at its peak? Obviously ice cream cause people to drown. Labs and Goldens are some of the most popular dogs, naturally there will be a *correlation* between those breeds and bites. When you factor...

    Good point, they don't inflict real damage; therefore, they aren't a concern. Let's look at which breed *does* inflict real damage. According to the centers for disease control, Pit Bulls and Rottweilers were involved in more than 50 percent of ALL dog bites which resulted in death...

    Pitbulls in the news

    You could ask 3-year-old Cody Yelton, whose left arm was amputated at the shoulder, because of a vicious pitbull attack. He probably knows something about the breed. http://www.channeloklahoma.com/news/4629937/detail.html?subid=22100424&qs=1;bp=t

    Pitbulls in the news

    I can't get over the fact that people are still trying to use dogs, which were created to be deadly weapons, as family pets. Would you let your kids play with a loaded gun? Then, why in the world would you get a Pitbull? Have a look at a recent Google news search of the word "Pitbull"...

    Golden won't bark or scratch door to go outside

    I am always looking for those other signs... Sniffing around... coming to me, etc... They just aren't there. (or I haven't seen them yet). I'd love to hear if anyone else has been successful with bell training. What kind of dog do you have?

    Jumping on the bed

    Get a "scat mat" They work incredibly well. I "zapped" myself dozens of times because I don't want to do anything to my dog that I couldn't do to myself. It doesn't hurt, it just feels uncomfortable. Did I metion how well it works?

    One more question... "come"

    How long should it take to train my aforementioned golden to "come"? I figured after two weeks he was ready for an "outside" test. We took him to an open field to play fetch but when the leash was removed, he just ran several hundred yards away ignoring my "come!" and waited for me to come and...

    Golden won't bark or scratch door to go outside

    I recently adopted a 1 year old neutered golden from a shelter. He seems to be quite intelligent and housebroken in the sense that he seems to know that he is supposed to go outside. About every other day though he has an accident. I try to take him out every 1-2 hours but I wish he'd let me...
