American Pit Bull Terrier History

Originating in Britain during the 19th century, the American Pit Bull Terrier was brought to North America by British Immigrants. They were originally used in the US by farmers and ranchers for protection, as catch dogs for semi-wild cattle and hogs, to hunt, to drive livestock, and as cherished family companions. The breed was recognized by the United Kennel Club in 1898.

Unfortunately their power, athleticism and tenacity led the breed to be misused as fighting dogs – a trend which continues to this day in underground dog fighting circles.

The American Pit Bull Terrier has been wrongly given the reputation as a mean, unpredictable and dangerous dog breed, when, in fact, the Pit Bull is one of most suitable breeds for children and families.

American Pit Bull Terrier Appearance

Sleek and well muscled, the American Pitbull Terrier is the epitome of canine good looks. His square, brick-like head rests upon strong shoulders – his expressive face belies his strong-man stature.

Pit Bulls have ears which may be cropped or natural, and a short, glossy, smooth coat that can be almost any color.

American Pit Bull Terriers thrive on plenty of daily exercise and human love and attention. Not the breed for couch potatoes, Pit Bulls ideally should live with active families who enjoy the outdoors.

Pit Bulls do extremely well in many dog sports, including agility, obedience, flyball, frisbee and more.

American Pit Bull Terrier Grooming Info

Brushing is pretty much the only grooming requirement for the American Pit Bull Terrier. The short, glossy coat requires minimal grooming; a good weekly brushing will do the trick, and keep your Pit Bull looking his best.

American Pit Bull Terrier Training

Due to their powerful physique and natural aggression towards other dogs, Pit Bull Terriers require early socialization and careful and consistent obedience training from an early age. They are also good climbers, and must be kept in a well-fenced yard.

Pit Bull owners should be vigilant, since although this breed won’t go looking for trouble – he won’t back down from a fight if provoked.

Is an American Pit Bull Terrier Right For You?

Pit Bulls make wonderful family companions that love children.

Unfortunately, due to irresponsible ownership and bad press, the American Pitbull Terrier has been given a bad rap. A well-socialized, well-trained American Pitbull Terrier can actually be the “ultimate” family dog, children’s companion and affectionate pet. He just needs a firm hand from an early age, and plenty of time, love and attention[/tab]
