I am so angry to live in a place where pitbulls are blamed for the acts of horrible human owners training to be fighting dogs, Even before pitbulls were banned here German shepherds had the highest attack rates, pitbulls were like 3rd or 4th,

when I was looking for a dog there weren't many breeds that I was specifically interested in but pitbull would have absolutely been very high on the list, had they been legal here instead of any pitbull puppy find it's way into a shelter being euthanized

Apparently pretty close. Staffies are supposed to have been bred as show dogs while pibbles were not. Therefore the pibble tends to be a bit heavier than staffies. In addition there are apparently American breeds of staffies which complicates the clarity too.

Like, I know my dogs will always come back, and my oldest (Jack Russel) won't wander too far, but my youngest, he's 50 kilos of pure energy and destruction that will likely injure himself or someone/something else before coming back. He too, collects sticks. I then have to take them off him a day or two later because he is honestly just eating them. I had to remove the barkchips from my yard because he was eating them like cereal.

This might be a dumb question but how do you get your dog to come back to you when you take it outside without a leash? What if it just runs away? Or chases a wild animal or another dog? I’ve never owned a dog, only indoor cats.

blardyslartfast
1
6 days ago

It's a skill you train the dog with. It's called recall. You train it inside with treats and the "come" command. Pair it with heel, wait and let's go and eventually you can go most places with the dog off leash. It's all about positive reinforcement and building on small steps setting the dog up to succeed.

All I could think of was raptors in the tall grass. I loved the pupper with a huge stick way more.

My first thought was that you'd definitely need to check her thoroughly for ticks afterward. I hope the owner is taking very good care of this precious pup!

Reminds me a day at the dog park when my two medium sized pups had found about a 3 foot long stick and were proudly carrying it one dog on each end of the stick. Then a dog like this walks by. They stopped, stared for a moment in what I can only assume was awe and stick envy, and quiety dropped their stick.

My dog does this but she ends up wearing herself out trying to drag around huge chunks of split logs.

Just don't be angry if your unleashed dog runs up to my leashed dog and gets bit.

Unlike your mom. She'd find the biggest dick available and keep hold of it for an entire walk!

How about you find the biggest bullet available and free humanity of your existence?
