A Little More About Pit Bulls....



"Pit bull" is not a breed of dog - it is a general term used to describe 3 breeds of dogs: American Pit Bull Terrier, American Staffordshire Terrier and Staffordshire Bull Terrier.  

Most "Pit Bull" type dogs are a mix of one or more of these 3 breeds PLUS many, many other breeds!

Common pit bull characteristics, or traits, include:

Loyalty, intelligence and extreme eagerness to please you.
Athletic and well-built
Extremely affectionate and loving towards all people - big and small.


At BCBC we dedicate most of our time and effort toward educating pit bull owners and community members. Here are some excellent educational materials about pit bulls.

Nothing in Life is Free by Deb McKean
Behavior training ideas from the "Nothing in Life is Free" training program. "A shy, timid dog becomes more relaxed knowing that he has nothing to worry about, his owner is in charge of all things. A dog that's pushing too hard to become "top dog" learns that the position is not available and that his life is far more enjoyable without the title."
