❥Best American Staffordshire Terriers Have Locking Jaws❥
Hopefully, this myth has been relegated to an urban legend to which it belongs. No canine has a locking jaw, it is a physical impossibility for dogs. With positive training, a dog can be started as early as 7 weeks of age. However, to teach formal obedience the dog should be older. 4-6 months of age is a good time to start formal obedience training using positive methods. One important note, in order for a dog to learn new behaviour they have to be old enough to be able to understand that behaviour.
❥Best Do American Pit Bull Terriers Have Incredible Bite Pressure Tips You Will Read This Year❥
Do not! Do not! Do not! There is no precise test to measure the PSI (pressure per square inch) of a Pit Bull or any other breed of dog. It has been shown that other dog breeds can actually (as there is no conclusive proof yet) have a harder bite. So why is it sometimes difficult to get a Pit Bull out of another creature? Well, the short answer: that’s what they were bred for. The breed was bred to endure, at all costs. Imagine if a bullfighter dog suddenly released the bull’s nose (which immobilizes the bull) that would set the bull free to kill the dog and kill the dog that the bull would do.
American Pit Bull Terriers have muscular neck and shoulder muscles, but so do American Bulldogs, Boxers, Jack Russell Terriers, Bulldogs, and a variety of other dog breeds. It is not the neck muscles that determine the force of a dog’s bite; 75% of that bite comes from the hind legs, and by immobilizing the rear of the dog’s body, a person can remove 75% of that bite from the dog.
Certainly, a bite from a pit bull is more devastating than, say, a teacup poodle, but no more devastating than a well-placed bite from a beagle that hits a key nerve in a child’s face, causing the face of that child is paralyzed.
The key point is this: ANY dog can cause serious harm to a human being, especially a child, and it is the responsibility of ALL dog owners to socialize and prepare their dogs for the “real” world.
❥Can pit bulls get along with cats and other smaller animals?
Yes and no. A dog is a predator, and it is naïve for any dog owner to think that Rex will get along with all cats because Rex gets along with the domestic cat, Mittens. Yes, Pit Bulls can get along with cats and some can get along with smaller animals. Some pit bulls get along with the house cat, but not with the neighbourhood cats. This is because dog owners have taught him to accept the house cat, but no such training was done for any other cat.
It is not aggression when a dog chases a cat or a smaller animal or even a child; It is a predatory instinct and should be taken as such. Proper socialization and training will curb that behaviour and can create Pit Bulls that may want to chase a cat, but have been socialized and trained not to chase a cat. But, as a responsible dog owner, a DOG MUST
NOT be left alone with a smaller animal, especially rabbits and rodents.
❥How do I get an APBT to stop fighting?❥
At some point in every dog owner’s life, one of their dogs will initiate or be subject to an attack from another dog. If that dog is an APBT, one of two things will happen. The APBT will leave (my dog does this) and “play for another day.” The most likely reaction is to fight back, which can lead to an APBT literally clinging to life. This method of separating a dogfight can be used for ANY dogfight and is not unique to any breed of dog.
