❥ The nature of the are pitbull ❥
We all know the famous Pitbull dogs which can range from the American Pitbull Terrier to the Staffordshire bull terrier or Mexican Chamucos, all are dogs bred from the same origin, a bloodline called Pitbull.
From SoyUnPerro we are going to explain what the character of this breed is like, the temperament of the Pitbull dogs that has been talked about so much lately, accusing them of being aggressive and even calling them murderers.
While it is true that Pitbull dogs have a somewhat stronger temperament than other dog breeds, it is also true that character is acquired largely based on the education and socialization that the dog receives from its owner.
That is, we cannot, in any case, affirm that Pitbulls are aggressive, since all dogs can be aggressive if they do not receive a proper education. From the smallest of Poodles to the largest of Great Danes, a rude dog can be a great danger.
Having clarified the part in which we must understand that it is the owner who largely defines the temperament of his dog, let’s see some of the most notorious qualities of Pitbull dogs.
❥ Pitbull puppies are little gladiators, they measure their strength ❥
Unlike the vast majority of dog breeds, Pitbulls are like little fighters from birth. As puppies they play at fighting among themselves, without obviously hurting each other, to measure their strength.
It is a very characteristic primary instinct of the Pitbull breed, which has been selecting the best specimens for many generations when their function was that of prey or guard dogs.
César Millan himself in his show The Dog Whisperer called them “little gladiators” when they were puppies, knowing that their behaviour is very different from that of puppies of other breeds.
❥ Pitbull dogs have a strong character ❥
This statement is totally true even though many of us do not quite like it. Pitbulls are dogs that have a strong character so their education is essential from puppies.
They will try to occupy the place of the leader of the pack on multiple occasions and therefore we must be constant and firm. Pitbulls are not dogs for people without experience in the world of canine education or for people with a weak personality.
We must make it clear to our Pitbull from a puppy what his position is, without letting him pass a single one. That they have a dominant character does not mean that they are dominant dogs, with proper socialization and a good education, they will be as good dogs as any other breed.
❥ Pitbulls have huge hearts ❥
Despite their strong and fierce appearance at times, those of us who have been lucky enough to have a Pitbull know the enormous heart they have, the great capacity to love that they have innately.
A Pitbull is not a bad dog, nor a killer dog, it is simply a dog. The Pitbull needs as much affection and pampering as any other dog, and he will give us as much love as he receives multiplied by ten.
They are also excellent caretakers of the herd, great protectors of their young and even our children, as long as they are well educated (like any breed). It is not the first time that the Pitbull breed has been referred to as “babysitting dogs” due to the love and protection they bring.
❥ The real temperament of a Pitbull ❥
Among the many things that a Pitbull dog can be depending on the correct education it receives, it should be noted that innately, that is, by mere instinct, the following qualities predominate:
- The Pitbull is a very intelligent and affectionate dog, with a lot of attachment to its owner.
- The Pitbull is a very obedient and hardworking dog, he loves to constantly learn.
- The Pitbull is a brave and loyal dog, it is not afraid of anything.
- The Pitbull is a very sociable, friendly and even somewhat clownish dog, who loves to play.
- The Pitbull is a bit stubborn at times, dominant if not well mannered.
As you can see, the Pitbull dog stands out for many good things, although every time it appears in the media it is because it has attacked or bitten someone. Something that previously happened with the Doberman and even before with the German Shepherd…. They are the trends of seeing who is the saddest dog, although that does not mean that the breed determines its dangerousness.
