    Perhaps they are simply misguided by the media, and don't have the insurance should your obviously vicious dog savage some poor girl and her little white fluffy thing -.-

    Just ridiculous.

    I just think they can't be trainers if they aren't willing to train all dogs.
    Not really. They are the ones who stated they don't take pit bulls. If so, they should have elaborated by giving factual reasons of why. The fcat they didn't just turns me off them straight away, regardless of the reasons of their policy.

    It should say who they are acredited through on their website, or when you meet them just ask what experience they have. But even if they did not go through these organisations they could have many years experience, just means they didnt have the money or the need to get trained by someone else

    The club I Instruct at takes any dog. But having said that I can see why some clubs may not.

    I am not saying there is anything wrong with any of the bull breeds but lets face it if there is going to be a scuffle amongst dogs they are going to win.

    Before classes start and while people are arriving our instructors are mingling amongst the people gathering because you have dogs there that don't like other dogs, you have puppies that jump on other puppies and adult dogs that don't like puppies etc and their owners have no idea how to read the body language of the other dog.

    I can't tell you how many times I've had to approach people and told them to remove their over excitable puppy out of the face of an adult dog because it has given the puppy numerous warnings and the thing is neither dog owner has seen it.

    Again I'm not saying it's right, but insurances etc and the idiot factor take a toll on clubs.

    I know my insurance is high.

    Were I trainer at a school I would take pit bulls only muzzled wearing a dangerous dog collar. Why? Because it is the law and dog schools are subject to the law - especially under insurance clauses.

    That is what I was going to say - I can not see how it would be any problem? If it is a Pitty, it would be muzzled, how can that cause any problems at all in class??

    And I would like to know what a "dangerous breed is"?

    I have been attacked/threatened by manybr eeds, and only ONE of them was a bull breed (American bulldog). If I had my way, I would ban a few breeds from obedience (and kennels) and they would not be any of the bull breeds!!
