    Why Are Toys So Important For Dogs?

    Almost every dog owner can pull out a bin of dog toys that they have purchased their bully breed, pitbull, or other power chewer dog. Usually that dog toy bin contains bits and pieces of ripped up toys, and they could tell you exactly how long each toy lasted, and which ones were worth the price (let's be honest we have all spent way too much on a toy before that was not worth the price).Not many understand the important of toys for your pitbull dog, and how critical it is to find a toy that matches your dogs needs....

    Pitbulls and BSL

    If you own a pitbull (or are just a lover of them) you likely know that pitbulls are wonderful dogs but are unfortunately are subject to some intense discrimination. Pitbulls can often be kind and affectionate animals (you better be prepared for some kisses) but there is a lot of research to suggest they are dangerous dogs. Because of this, places like Ontario, Canada do not allow pitbulls. We believe STRONGLY at Pitbull Tough that this is an unfair law, and that a well trained pitbull is a great family dog. Although we support raw feeding for dogs and balanced...

    Losing Our Girl


    I cannot accurately describe what it's like having to let go of your dog. It's a gut wrenching, heart ripping, awful feeling. The feelings are only multiplied by the loss of a young dog still so full of life. If you had asked me two weeks before we said goodbye that we were going to lose her, I would have thought you were playing a sick joke on me. But now it's been a month since she's gone, and my heart still feels that ache for her.Alana was never an easy dog. She was headstrong, brilliant, tough, and resourceful. She...

    | 1 comment

    I want to start off this post by once again saying, I am not a dog trainer. I am not here to give training advice other than to say what did and do not work for me. Everyone should always consult a trainer they trust before starting any kind of training.
