Strawman argument. Not even going to bother replying.
And if the article were to say...all these things are true EXCEPT for pit bulls...no one would have flown off the handle about pit bulls being singled out?
No, we would have appreciated the distinction. I really don't think you grasp the uniqueness of this breed as well as you think you do. These ain't foo-foo dogs. They are FIGHTERS. And that's not a bad thing.
Just because this is a PIT BULL board, we are not able to discuss other breeds and training of said breeds? I brought up different breeds because someone said that they don't think multiple dogs should be loose together, and I mentioned that it might be the case with pit bulls, but some other breeds don't have the same issues. So we can ONLY talk about pit bulls and what is true and right for this breed? Heavens that we would broaden the discussion to include other types of dogs.
Knock off the sarcasm. You know EXACTLY what I was getting at. NOTHING in either article approached dog aggression from the perspective of a Pit Bull, nor did anything in EITHER article indicate good, sound management strategies for Pit Bulls. And because this is a PIT BULL board that comes up in search engines, people come here looking for advice. When they see an article (without ANY references, BTW) stickied at the very top of the "Training & Behavior" section, do you think they are going to say to themselves "I bet that article DOESN'T apply to my Pit Bull?!?"
This is just common sense.
