I have been working with the American Pitbull Terrier for about 6 years now. I purchased Mako when he was 8 weeks old based on puppy test that we do for patrol work. I went to a few protection events some years back and had the oppurtunity to see some of them work. Needless to say I did some research and well, he we are today. I think I like the bond that the breed forms with its family the most. If you own one, then you know what I mean. It's been great. He an I have done alot to disprove some of the myths in our area. My department was initially against my owning one but once they saw how well behaved and "non-dog/people aggressive" he actually was they were truly impressed. Heck, I guess I get jealous sometimes because he has never met a stranger. Below is my current patrol partner, Hektor. He is will turned four years old on July 12th

Hi and welcome to PBT!

I'm not on my home computer so I can't grant you access. I will soon or maybe cheeky will be on and be able to do it.

Congrats on the k-9 prosports championship!

I have met a couple of local people that do k-9 pro sports. :gruven:

So, I guess I'll ask here. Does anyone here have any experience with Nu Vet plus canine vitamins?

Weclome! Nice looking gang you've got there!! :shock: I know the padding protects you during bitework, but how do you guys deal with rotator cuffs?? :?

Well, good luck, happy training and enjoy! :)

Welcome Chianti.....Mako is gorgeous! I love a workin man!

I do a lot of nutritional research, but I haven't heard anything about Nu Vet vitamins. Are you looking for an all-around supplement, or are you dealing with a specific issue??
