Myth of the week

Myth: Pit bulls make good guard dogs.
Fact: Pit bulls, in fact, make horrible guard dogs. They're too trusting of people and will walk away with anyone. Why do you think pit bulls are one of the number one stolen dogs in America? I can guess why; people think they make good guard dogs, so leave them outside to "guard" and- in the long run- they get stolen while "on duty". Pit bulls do however make good watchdogs. Which is different from a guard dog because a watchdogs job is to bark and let you know when someone is coming. They also make good police dogs and service dogs. They are, after all, loyal to humans; people pleasers, I'd say.
