A pit bull perception problem: What's a dog owner to do?

A pit bull perception problem: What's a dog owner to do?

Upshur recommends that pit bull owners enroll in training courses and walk their dogs regularly, at least three times a week, to help the dog burn energy and avoid destructive behavior. He says the breed can be easy to train because pit bulls love pleasing their owners. “Unfortunately, people are not doing that, and it’s given pit bulls a bad name,” he says. “They look at the color and say ‘I want that one,’” he says. “People get a willful pit bull or a pit bull puppy and don’t have time to work with it, then the dog gets bored. If you don’t have time to spend with a dog, you don’t want a pit bull. A lot of people just put the dog in a fenced-in yard and say the dog gets plenty of exercise, but the dog needs to stimulate its mind just like people do.”
