DogsBite.org - Pit bulls are classic escape artists.1 This is why cities with pit bull regulations often mandate a four-sided enclosure with cement flooring and a secure top for this dog breed.2 This video shows the pit bull owner teaching his dog to perform "synchronized fence scaling" in an urban environment.3 While most dog owners would frown upon their dog climbing a fence to escape their property, pit bull owners frequently teach it and revel in their dog's "achievements."
Who wants to live next door to a pit bull?
2In July 2008, a dangerous pit bull escaped a 9 foot cage at the Leflore County Humane Society. The county subsequently passed a pit bull law that mandated a four-sided pen, 6-feet high with a top and concrete floors.
3This fence is visibly not 10 feet high as the video author claims.
