Traditionally, the rich parents among us are using their wealth to provide the very best for their children. Be it a $4000 stroller or designer diaper bag, the wealthy have their set of rules. These rules include not wanting their little darlings to be seen with anything an average middle class child might have, let alone a child who might be, gasp, POOR! So is it now, so it has always been in America.
The one exception has been with dog breeds.
In America one dog breed historically became known as the dog for people who are scared of dogs.
One dog breed achieved such a rock solid reputation with children that for 120 years it was known as the “Nanny Dog” of the U.S.A.
One dog breed became so trusted despite the fact that:
- No Kennel Club or Association recognized it.
- You can find them on the poorest farms and bleakest city neighborhoods. Neighborhoods with kids who didn’t know where their next meal was coming from. Think of this scenario as the “Little Rascals”
- Rich people are acquiring them in droves because they were simply the safest, most tolerant breed to have around their coddled kiddies.
Rich, poor, and everything in between, until recently Americans agreed that there were only a CERTAIN TYPE of people who would own a Pitbull. These were parents who loved their children.
A Smear Campaign
America’s Nanny Dog is the victim of a smear campaign that has turned common sense upside-down and robbed us of our historical memory. The dogs that we trusted with our children’s lives are now deemed too vicious to live among us. The dogs that in two World Wars were the symbol of the United States military itself are now ordered off its facilities.
Pitbull Training Near Naperville,IL
The Pitbull has not changed. Only the owners have.
Gentle reader, as I restate emphatically throughout the articles on this website, a dog is a dog regardless of breed. They have the same instincts, DNA, and same ways of relating to the world. With proper guidance (training) dogs are indeed man’s, woman’s and child’s best friend. Unless you share the training philosophy of a Michael Vick, then please do not brand Pitbulls as a vicious breed.
For all the doubters, I now formally put to rest the recurring rumors by boldly stating that, YES;
- We did indeed land on the moon.
- President Obama is an American citizen.
- Pitbulls are good dogs too.
Pitbulls are loving companions with the right training. It’s unfair with the constant labeling of Pitbulls as aggressive and dangerous. With our Pitbull training program, your furry friend can learn how to be a well-behaved and loving companion.
