tbh I almost unfollowed after reading some later posts about pit bulls, after reading the original Q&A I can see how many things were taken out of context or even twisted. I believe breeding first and foremost determines the behavior of a dog, training is secondary. anyway just felt bad for feeling angry with you so writing to say sorry :P

Haha thank for reading! That’s usually the #1 issue I get whenever I post my opinion, or even just facts… People do not fully comprehend what I’m saying, or they just flat out didn’t read it and assume I said what they are against!

This my dog Goldie. She’s 10 years old and a hybrid of Pomeranian and Indian Pariah dog. Me and my family got her through one of my mom’s friend, at that time she was only 2 months old.

All breeds have certain qualities bred into them, whether we like that or not. While not all members of the breed inherit those qualities, all owners should be aware of them and train their dog accordingly. Each dog also has unique quirks. It’s life.

This is Jimmy! He is a 5 year old rescue dog who after all these years, we are still trying to figure out what he is mixed with! With a small head, long legs, a tail that he has no control over, and a love for retrieving, we just call him our lil melting pot!

If pit bulls are "prone to aggression", why were they used as babysitters back in the day? The very incorrect thought that they are "prone to aggression" is what made people rebel against them and treat them unfairly, which includes putting them to fight with each other, etc. Dogs are what you make of them, they are not born "prone to aggression" much like no one is born a violent human.

Ehh well pit bulls were never used as babysitters, the nanny dog thing is a myth. There was only one mention in history of nanny dogs, and that was in a book about Staffordshire Bull Terriers in 1971 describing their fondness for children. But neither staffy bulls, nor pit bulls, were ever used as babysitters.

Also, why are y’all not reading? Dog aggression and flat out aggression are two different things! I blatantly said that they are friendly dogs who are great with people. And they weren’t used as fighting dogs because of their stigma of being prone to dog aggression, the breed itself was created to fight.

And no, you cannot make a dog whatever you want it to be.

Hi there! I know you get tons of messages so it may be a while before you see this or respond but that is okay. I don’t have many passions in life but I really love animals so I want to have a job that lets me work with them. I was thinking of becoming a Dog/Pet Trainer and Groomer but even though I have researched different places that offer training programs near me (I live in KY) I am still really confused about how to become a trainer and groomer. Do you have any tips on where to go?

Stores like Petco & Petsmart have their own training programs and can get you started as both a trainer and a groomer. I do not have experience earning certificates via chain stores, but I do know they require you to sign a contract and non-compete in order to stay in their program. 

You can also express interest in grooming by getting a job at a reputable grooming salon and simply asking! You will have to start off as a dog bather, but usually there will be some groomer that would love to show you the ins & outs.

I’ve heard okay reviews about Animal Behavior College. They have both dog training and dog grooming courses and include actual hands on training. There’s also Karen Pryor Academy for dog training, but in the end what you want is to be certified by the right organizations. Taking courses and gaining experience is key, but it should all lead up to being APDT & CPDT-KA Certified (in the US) for dog training.

I’m not sure if there is a certification process for dog grooming? Honestly certifications aren’t even required to be either, but it gives you the extra push into the career you want, while also learning important information. Learning by experience is great, but it is important to take proper courses to learn specifics. Especially when it comes to the well being of someone’s pet.

This boxer right here…. This girl was my world. She had to be put down yesterday due to congestive heart failure that came on rather suddenly.
She was born with a heart defect, but she was so active and curious up until the day she passed. I am so lucky to have had her as my best friend for nearly 13 years.

Princess, you made me the happiest person in the world. I already miss your smile and how you’d curl up next to me when we’d go for a drive. I don’t know what to do without you by my side, but I promise you’ll always have my heart. I love you, babygirl.

This is my family’s beautiful, beautiful Bandit. He is 5 and a half. I have been studying abroad this year so won’t get to see him until the end of August. I’ve been missing him every day, and after over 6 months without his cuddles and funny faces I simply can’t wait to go back and give him a huge cuddle!

We don’t really know what breed he is as he was abandoned. He has something of a lab, but his face is too long, and he is much more slender – he is also incredibly fast and loves running. Feel free to write your guesses!

This is Eevee! Named after the Pokemon, of course. 

She was dumped on the side of the road and left to be on her own, but luckily, she was picked up and was put in a fostering system. When I first saw a picture of her, I immediately fell in love, and did everything I could to make sure I adopted her. She’s a Corgi mix, but we’re not entirely sure what kind she is. We believe she’s blind in one eyes, because she walks in circles to get somewhere, but that makes her even more adorable. 

She’s a sweet little girl that is going to be spoiled and loved unconditionally, and I am very lucky to have her.
