You can’t. You may be able to convince people that YOUR pitbull is the nicest dog but pitbulls have a bad reputation. Right or wrong, that’s the way it is.

You must be kind to your dog and never be mean to him so that he does not become aggressive to other people. You can join various pit bull owners groups and participate in their efforts to improve the perception of pit bulls.

I have seen gangs where I live out on the streets with these dogs, can’t change my opinion. There are also several high profile news stories of children being killed by pitbulls.
Whilst I realise that you may have trained your pitbull well, there are enough people out there who haven’t.

You know?–I never seem to read a headline saying: “Cocker spaniel mauls toddler.” While they are fine as pets most of the time, if they do attack–as many breeds might–their inbred tendencies and powerful jaws and other physical characteristics make them dangerous. I don’t think they should be allowed as household pets.

So, I believe the pitbull’s reputation is deserved.

Raise the dog right – it’s the only way to assure good behavior , but you will never change the narrow minded opinions of the robots that believe all the media hype regarding the breed or the bigoted minds that would rather see the animals extinct than except their exceptional qualities. You can’t go wrong with your dog & you will never receive the loyalty you get from him from any other kind of canine.

your dog might be nice but I wouldn’t trust them around any small child as it is known that these animals can snap in a second there has been Many reports of this happening.Even in our small town this has happened.These dogs where bred to be aggressive and they have that gene in them,just as we have our parents genes.So don’t be fooled by him.Now Im not saying that yours will do this all Im saying is don’t take a chance when it comes to other people lives.

If your dog is trained well he is one of the best dogs to have! I just googled to see pictures of pit bulls for two people told me my mutt dog was part pit, and there was one picture of a dog that looked like her mom and it was full pit bull! I did not know. Pit and mini-pincher!

But my dog is sweet and smart. You have to spend alot of time training and montoring them and by age two years they are one wonderful dog. They are so full of energy and they pay attention to everything. when meeting people I am right there training her and talking to her.

My dog is on a rope, for we cannot fence the yard, so she gets wrapped around trees, and all I have to do now it tell her to “go around” and she will unwind herself! Amazing dog!

but you can’t change people…. they are stuck. Pit bulls are now the most abandoned dog around for they are so much energy…mix that with the energetic mini-pin and wow you have my dog!

Why don’t you put some lipstick on your pitbull?. That would give it a high reputation. Your pitbull can even be Vice President someday.

Just joking…. 🙂
