American Pitbulls can make great family pets but they are not a breed for everyone. Owners should be experienced dog owners and be aware of how important training and socialization from puppy-hood is for this dog breed. They must understand and read their dogs behaviour as the American Pitbull has a natural instinct to be dog aggressive. Unfortunately this natural dog aggression put in the hands of irresponsible owners has led to this dog breed being wrongly feared. American Pitbulls are very people friendly and as such do not make good guard/watch dogs. American Pitbulls need their owners to help them overcome the negative stigma attached to this breed by training them into becoming loving happy healthy pets. Just like this one, from youtube Dog and Duck!
