smiled at neighbors
Just pissed off my neighbors two doors down They have a pit bull that has escaped once this year. The thing is unruly and its obvious the 20 something couple got it because its "cool". Its a nice neighborhood no need for a dog like that unless he himself is doing something. Anyway..past few nights they have been trying to take it for a walk like normal dog owners. The thing is any time another dog is close it goes nuts. Not your normal dog nuts but im going to tear your face off nuts. First 2 nights they walked past my dog would bark at him threw the screen door..the other dog goes nuts and i would close my door. this time i just let my dog bark, they need to learn to control it. I stood feet from the door and she saw me..i smiled and she mouthed something..i just smiled.
If you can take care of a pit and have it obey, that's fine. If you cant, then we have an issue
As always, it isn't the dog, it's the owners.

What I do to unruly, untrainable pit bulls, 2 to the chest, 1 to the head. Oops... Did that slip out?
Not as lean, not as mean, but I'm still a hardcore, ass-kicking, hard charging Marine! Oohrah!
I have a couple of Chihuahuas next door that yip all night long. I am currently on the lookout for any stray pit bull I can find so I can through it over my neighbors fence.
I agree with the bad owner crowd. I am a pitbull owner (Pit/Lab) and I can (and do at times) 'walk' my dog around the block with no leash or guide whatsoever. When he gets too far away I say his name and he stops and waits for me. If he sees another dog, a person, cat, little kid, car, etc.. I just tell him no, sit, and stay, and he will wait for me to come to him and won't move toward whatever he was looking at before.
Pitbulls are just like having kids.. It's all in how you raise them that determines how they will grow up. When he is in the house, he is very protective of 'his' property. When he is off 'his' property, he is a big baby to whoever feels like walking up and petting him.
My Mom has two Chihuahua's that she walks on retractable leashes. When I take my dog over to her house and she takes them outside he has, what seems like, an amazingly fun time biting the string on their leash and pulling them.. It's hilarious! It looks like he is trying to walk him.. If I have a leash on him and let it go he will pick it up and hold it in his mouth before he will start walking again. That's pretty funny too.

I would soak some hamburger in antifreeze and mouse poison, then just toss a bag of it over the fence one night. Specially if I had kids in that neighborhood. That sound like a potential killer dog there, one that should be given to Michael Vick.
My doctor gave me six months to live, but when I couldn't pay the bill he gave me six months more.
^ Agreed.. There are some dogs (Of every breed) That the owners have screwed up so bad they're just better off dead. Or hell, put them to good use.. Let them loose in the White House..
You're the one that has to live there. Let your conscience be your guide.
who needs to learn to control their dog? It sounds to me like your dog is the one instigating this situation and you are not only allowing it to happen but encouraging it. Maybe this couple is trying to socialize their dog, and instead of being helpful, you are being passive aggressive and allowing your dog to antagonize their dog through your screen because you have made some broad stereotype in your head about what pit bulls are wand who owns them.

I dont think so
my dogs bark at everything that gets close to the yard
but when I am walking them and other dogs charge the fence barking
my dogs just ignore them
they dont freak out
so his neighbors have the problem
If con is the opposite of pro
is congress the opposite of progress?
