I have owned and been reading up on pits all my life, some papered, some not. My current one is a pit mix. He's a big goof. I know a bit but I still get put in situations that I've never been in before and could use some advice, thankfully I browsed around and found this forum. I actually tried another forum first and was pretty disgusted at the way they talked to people, "gave advice" (which was basically belittling and making people feel like idiots), and how quick they were to tell fellow board members to just put their dog to sleep. I haven't gone through all the threads here yet but the couple I've read so far seem to be on the right page with my thinking, thankfully. Needless to say, I'm not always right but it is nice to be around knowledgeable (probably more-so than I), like-minded people.
