It hardly takes a genius to figure out what this owner is teaching his dog. The video amps it up with "extreme sport" music too, a perfect thrasher background blend. Training your pit bull to be a terror machine is an extreme sport. But in the end, it is not the athlete that suffers the risks; it is an innocent victim that falls prey to the dog's teeth.
This is a terror video pure and simple. It is meant to appeal to a particular subculture of dog owners who want to intimidate, who want to hang another chain of masculinity around their neck, who want a killing machine by their side instead of (or including) a concealed weapon -- the latter being illegal if he has been convicted of a felony crime.
It is this same subculture of pit bull breeders and owners that call their dogs "bullys." Now you understand why.

I really need to comment on this - haven't you ever seen a dog train for Schuzhund before? If you are going to publish a website like this, then please take the time to learn about bite sports - the dog is being trained to attack THE BITE SLEEVE, nothing else. German Shepherds are the masters at this, but APBT's are used in it too.

A bite sport? German Shepherds are trained at "bite sports?" German Shepherds are trained by police and other tasks forces to attack criminals. The bite sleeve is used by the trainer so that he doesn't lose an arm in the process.

Okay, so you've never heard of bite sports. I can see that. They are not protection training - they are sports. Schuzund and French Ring are bite sports. Go to Giane Jessup's website and learn a little. The bite sleeve is for bite sports.

If I saw a dog being trained this way on my street, I would call the police immediately. Giane Jessup? Don't you mean Diane Jessup, the self-proclaimed pit bull goddess of the Pacific Northwest? She is last person on the planet I would take lessons from.

I doubt this guy is training a dog for Shutzhund or French Ring. You can see these idiots on Youtube, they are everywhere. I would bet my life on the fact that this guy has no "out" command....
