Cesar Millan: Love My Pit Bull Exclusive
Did you see Cesar's recent one-hour pit bull special? Viewers learned about the history of pit bulls, dating back to the 1800s, in which pit bulls were commonly used on farms and cattle ranches to herd animals. They were even trusted to watch the children while the adults worked the field. In England, for example, the Staffordshire bull terrier was so good with kids, it became known as "The Nanny Dog," which is a quality Cesar Millan often saw in his own pit bull, Daddy.
Do you own a pit bull? Are they really more dangerous or naturally aggressive than other breeds? Or should humans and bad training take more of the blame? Weigh in with your thoughts in the comments.

    It's so sad for the Pitbull to have this type of history and then it completely turns around to them being the devil dog in the media and why?? Because of human greed and dog fighting. Which has nothing to do with their temperament. I've owned multiple Pitbulls/Staffies and they are incredible and sweet.

    If Sergeant Stubby was crossed to a Boston Terrier he wasn't a pitbull. That dog would be too small to fight and his mouth could not break any bones or damaged another dog Boston Terriers are small dogs. So I think for the record Sergeant Stubby wasn't a pitbull he was a nice dog nice looking dog but he wasn't a pitbull.

    Cesar, in the UK we used to have a dog-licence. Do you think prospective owners should be advised on the type of dog they would be suited to owning, so pit-bulls and other strong breeds don't get such a bad reputation? Would a licence-system help?

  • NattieChristopher

    The Staffordshire Bull Terrier was never known as a 'nanny dog'! There is no evidence whatsoever to back this up. The first ever documented mention of SBTs being 'nanny dogs' was when a breeder was talking about her own dogs back in the 70's. Prior to that there was no mention made of these 'nanny dogs' in any historical archive from the UK (not just England), US and Canada!

    Good to see the truth about Bully dog types like the American Pitbull. Every single person in the world needs to see this. These types of dogs are great, loyal working dogs bred and used on farms, to hunt, and also as great gladiators used to battle against large animals as well as other dogs. These dogs can do anything and are one of the most versatile dogs in all existence.

    Marvelous video on this incredible type of dog known as Pit Bull types or Bull breeds. Something I have learned from personal experience while working with Animal Control is that there is no type or breed of dog that is more aggressive or more likely to bite you naturally. When a German Shepherd, Rottweiler, Doberman Pincher, Akita, Husky, or American Pit Bull Terrier comes into the facility, you cannot say they are more likely to bite or be aggressive than any other dog that comes in. It is impossible to judge the level of aggression of dogs based on breed, because it really depends on factors that the owner provides for the dog (such as training, socialization, environment, structure, etc.) more so than the size, type, or even breed of dog one has. No matter the breed, dogs are dogs. They are the same species. And while some of us try to put them in different brackets as if they are entirely different species from one another, the fact remains that they are dogs before they are any size, type, or breed we as a people have categorized them as.

      @bluewind gau That is not necessarily true. While there are Pit Bulls which are dangerous and should not be around children, it is more commonly believed that they actually do good around children with the proper supervision and socialization. Like with any dog, do not judge them based on breed. Some dogs should not be around children, and their breed is not the reason why. Also Pit Bulls being dangerous for children is contrary to the information we are given here which says that they more times than not are good with children.

      I would also like to add that farm work came first before the sports of bull and bear baiting. It is true that when brought to America, Pit Bulls were used on farms as well. However, they were bred for helping farmers with livestock such as with cattle. Their duties on the farm led them to be used for the sport of bull baiting, and this is when the association with fighting for the breed began.

    Wait I need something cleared up. The American staffordshire terrier is not a pitbull? Or is it just another name for it, because I think "pit" means fight. And so they made the "pitbull" dog to fight (after the nanny dog the staffordshire terrier existence). How did they make the pitbull dog? What dog did they crossbreed with the staffordshire terrier?

    • Neil Murray

      Edgar Mendez The dog people call Amstaff and Apbts are in fact Irish bloodline Staffordshires brought to America by Irish immigrants and plantation owners . Half and Halfs or Bull and Terriers came in a variety of weights and sizes according to the county of Britain they came from. The term Pitbull was first used for these dogs in the 1700s in Britain and there is some debate about the term Pit referring to either the box they fought in or relating to the coal miners who owned them the ' Pit ' men . The stock dog in the creation of these dogs was the now extinct Old English Bulldogge which they crossed with the many game Terriers of Britain and Ireland . Certain dogmen favoured more Bulldogge blood in their fighting dogs while others preferred more terrier blood which resulted in notable size differences in the dogs . Half and Halfs can be narrowed down to certain types these being Irish Old Family , Cradley Heath , Walsall, Darlaston, Dudleys and Blue Paul . The Irish type is the dog people associate with the APBT and Amstaff which was allegedly the best fighter of all the county types . Colby and Armitage imported these dogs to America and rebranded them and the first Amstaff named Primo was an imported Irish Staffordshire. Colby would pay the cost of passage for Irish immigrants if they brought their fighting dogs with them for him to breed, sell and fight . You asked the question what did they cross the Amstaff with to create the Pitbull and the answer is they didn't the dog is a Staffordshire type not a separate breed . If you are interested to know the dog people recognise as the Staffordshire of today is Cradley Heath type Crossguns bloodline and only represents one type but in Britain and Ireland to this day the other types still exist . Half and Half dogs 'pit Bull ' at no time were used for bull and bear baiting that was Bulldogges the Half and Halfs were fighting dogs only and they certainly weren't ever know as the Nanny Dog that is fantasy and fiction .

      +Edgar Mendez You must mean the American Bully. Well, it came about by people mixing American Pit Bull Terriers with a variety of different Bull breeds and Mastiff breeds for a larger, more stout, and calmer dog that is not as high energy. Not as high energy, athletic, and active as the American Pit Bull Terrier, the American Bully made good pets for households that are less active and have other animals since the American Pit Bull Terrier's high prey drive and very challenging nature towards other animals sometimes make them difficult to get along or live with other animals (though we must remember that APBTs, when raised and trained correctly and sometimes even when not, can be good around other animals). The American Bully's larger size and looks made them very popular among people who like larger dogs.

    • Delightful Addition

      +Edgar Mendez Now on whether or not the American Staffordshire Terrier is the same breed as the American Pit Bull Terrier, it is controversial. Some say they are both the same breed. Some beg to differ. People such as those involved with the AKC, which are the ones that started the American Staffordshire Terrier name, which will not register a dog that has been registered as an APBT. It only registers dogs with parents registered as American Staffordshire Terriers. Some say that the concept behind both breeds and years of breeding in different directions has led to two separate breeds. While the American Pit Bull Terrier is a working breed and is bred as such, the American Staffordshire Terrier is more of a show dog bred more for physical conformation on what the AKC thinks the breed should look like. This has resulted in some noticeable differences between the supposed separate breeds. While the APBT seen as leaner and more agile, the American Staffordshire Terrier is viewed as larger and stockier in build. Also, the average size for both breeds are something to be taken into account. While the APBT usually maxes at around 50 pounds, the American Staffordshire Terrier's smallest weight is around 60 pounds and reaches up to 80 pounds. And it is not just physical characteristics that people say separate them. Another quality people discuss is the trait known as gameness which is a very important trait in the APBT breed that is not really found or often discussed in the AST breed because it is not something that is bred for or important since they are not seen as a working breed or used for fighting purposes like the APBT is.

      +Edgar Mendez Hello there. I couldn't help but notice your comment and want to try and help explain. My response may be a bit lengthy, but I think I can help clear somethings up for you. Certain breeds and mixed breed dogs with certain physical characteristics are often referred to as Pit Bull type dogs. While these certain Bull breeds such as the American Pit Bull Terrier, American Staffordshire Terrier, Staffordshire Bull Terrier, Bull Terrier, and others are labeled as Pit Bulls, there are some that view the term Pit Bull as being specifically the breed known as the American Pit Bull Terrier. You ask if the American Staffordshire Terrier is a Pit Bull type or not. The answer is yes. However, when people ask if the American Staffordshire Terrier is the same breed as an American Pit Bull Terrier, that is when things get very controversial. First I would like to mention that the American Pit Bull Terrier did not come from the American Staffordshire Terrier. If anything, the American Staffordshire Terrier would be considered a child breed to the breed known as the American Pit Bull Terrier. The American Staffordshire Terrier is documented to have come about when the American Kennel Club wanted to register American Pit Bull Terriers, but didn't want the term "Pit Bull" to be associated with their registry because of its bull baiting and fighting uses. So it agreed to register APBTs under the name American Staffordshire Terrier. In retrospect, it was simply a name change to which the American Staffordshire Terrier came about. They are so closely related, that some feel they are the same dog. They can be dual registered as either American Pit Bull Terriers and American Staffordshire Terriers in some cases. To understand the American Staffordshire Terrier's history and the dogs themselves, one would also have to look at the American Pit Bull Terrier's history and their qualities. This is because many of the qualities and traits found in the American Pit Bull Terrier are also found in the American Staffordshire Terrier standard wise. I also would like to add that the APBT was not made to fight. Originally bred to be farm dogs, the American Pit Bull Terrier was tasked with helping farmers with livestock such as with cattle. Their duties on the farm led them to be used for the sport of bull baiting, and this is when the association with fighting for the breed began.

      +Shelby Crane That is very unfortunate. I believe this individual should not be a teacher with a mindset like that. However, you teacher would not be able to shoot him on sight, especially if you are at school. At school, he should not even be able to possess a gun, and even if he did, if he shot your dog, he would be in serious trouble and would most likely be fired and maybe even arrested and jailed. However, it is probably best to stay on the safe side and not bring your dog to his class. If you want to bring your dog to school, I would make sure it is not in his classroom. But instead of bringing your dog to school, I would suggest showing him this video or sending it to him via email.

    I love how Cesar always reminds people that it isn't the dog but the human behind the dog. I was watching a video earlier about a irrsponsable owner (she probably had anger issues.) I started to read the comments and I saw something that really pissed me off, someone saying "Don't feel bad for a dog that was created to kill other dogs." I mean.. Who created the dog? Humans did, each breed is like our kids, we created them now it's our responsability to protect them and keep them alive as the best version of themselves. People say "Pitbulls are not for anyone" I just say "A dog is not for anyway." Regardless of breed or size, a bad owner will result in a dog with problems. but unlike the owner, the dog can change into a better version of themselves.I love pitbulls (American Staffs, Staff Bulls, American pitbull terriers.), actually all dogs. But seeing people descriminate dogs by their breeds is racism, the most common kind of racism that most people ignore. :\

      We know what you mean but what you expect from a bulldog breed so much power and strength when they are bored they do become misbehaving but this why we exercise them. The pit bull is 1 of the strongest and most energetic dog out the breed but we forced them to do it. They pick up bad habits like us and most of us don't stop so what they gonna do not stop. But the loyalty of this dogs is unexplainable so they will do anything to serve us

      @Rafaella Abreu "Don't feel bad for a dog that was created to kill other dogs"? Whoever said that was an idiot. These dogs were not even bred to fight other dogs. Actually, as this video points out, these dogs were working with each other in sports like bull baiting and bear baiting even before they started to be used for dog fighting. Dog fighting had started after bull and bear baiting was outlawed sometime around 1835. Pitbulls were being trained and used for bull and bear baiting in the 1700's. These dogs were bred to be farm dogs to help farmers with the bulls. When people saw how strong, athletic, tough, loyal, courageous, and tenacious these dogs were, they started these sports called bull and bear baiting that would see how long it took the dogs to bring the large animal down and to see which dog/s displayed the most courage, ability, and did the best overall. For more info watch this video - www.dailymotion.com/video/xaf5xb_pit-bull-dog-breed-explained_animals Besides, dog fighting isn't even about killing. It is a competition between two dogs. It is not a death match. The majority of the time, the dogs do not kill one another. A fight is settled when either one dog fleas or was unable to continue, then they stop the match and declare the other dog the winner. I would be pissed off if I read a comment like that. It's sad how stupid some people are.

    I was watching the documentary the other day and almost fell over in shock! At the 45 minute mark (with commercials) there was a shot of me, my husband, and our beautiful Pittie boy, Monkey!!!!!! We were in Boston doing a BSL walk in that day. That walk was almost two years ago!! At the time, we were told that the video camera was there recording all of us so that if time allowed, the footage might make it onto the local news. It was very shocking to be just watching a show, and see yourself show up on the screen.

    I'm sorry but yes, the nanny dog thing is true. Granted with any breed a responsible owner won't take that as " oh I can leave my kid's alone unsupervised with my dog"... Kid's, and mine included need to know what is OK and what's not, so breanna, were u being one of those people that thought it was amusing for the kid's to ride or torment? Dog owner's often time's fail to see warning sign's. A dog has only so many ways to say it's scared or uncomfortable... With any dog breed, you leave your child alone with them for as long as u leave your small child alone in the bath. People's irresponsibility creates problems.

  • MicheleElys MER

    Yes, Bull Terriers & Bull Dogs were being bred in the 1600's by Humans to mane and kill. If you look at those times, humans had been burning people at the towns stake for religious beliefs, and so called gossips. It was violent and humans are the responsible party for this violence. It does not take away from the wonderful Nanny dog or any other breed. It is time humans turned this violence around and be responsible for what we have created, and quit the DENIAL! I had Rottweilers for 23 years, one was a children's' therapy dog. Not one was violent for I am not violent. There are great dogs, Pit Bulls, Rottweilers, German Shepherds, Dobermans, Belgium Malinois; all trained for Service and Rescue and in the wrong hands can mane and kill, due to us humans who wish only to see the wrong side of life. Which do you prefer? Live in Denial or join a force to change these reputations of man created horrors? Do you wish to bring back Witch hunts also and burning at the stake for a belief? We have an incredible opportunity here, whether people want to join Cesar or complain. I am joining up! Anyone Else? MicheleElys (first name, not Michele) Google it. ;D Cheers

    • Swell Character
      Swell Character

      @MicheleElys Mer Not bred, trained and used. And while bulldog and terrier crosses were used as well, they were not around that long ago. Only the true working and bull baiting bulldog was around that long ago (the APBT). Originally working dogs, the true bull baiting and working bulldogs that some people call APBTs were first working and hunting dogs of large game and started to be trained and used for bloodsports like bear and bull baiting when people saw how good they were at their work. What started off as a farm job to control livestock for the butcher, people started to display their working bulldog's abilities in those kinds of sports as a way to test the quality of their working dogs, for the butcher to make money, and for entertainment. Like dog professional, breed historian, and author Diane Jessup writes: "First a hunter, then a butcher's dog, then a baiter, then a dog fighter, Pit Bulls are actually one of the oldest and certainly one of the purest. Written Pit Bull pedigrees date into the late 1700's. The breed know as the English bulldog is a relatively recently developed animal designed strictly for the show ring. In fact, English bulldogs were not even created until several years AFTER bull baiting (the purpose for which it was supposed to have been bred) was banned and discontinued in the United Kingdom. So, it is impossible for the Pit Bull to have been developed from a breed younger than itself. In fact, the English bulldog is developed from the original working bulldog - the Pit Bull."

      @Sky Leopard Actually, Pit Bull is not a particular breed of dog. It a category of dogs with similar qualities that generally allow the dog to be good at or seen as favorable to be used for certain things. For Pit Bull dog types, they are generally seen to be seen as favorable for hunting, controlling livestock, and to be trained for what some would call combat or sporting matches to take on a large assortment of animals like bull, bear, boar, badgers, rats, and other dogs. Like it says in the definition of Pit Bull, it is "a generic term used to describe dogs with similar physical characteristics. The general public and news media consider a Pit Bull as one of several breeds including the Staffordshire Bull Terrier, American Pit Bull Terrier, American Staffordshire Terrier, Bull Terrier, Argentine Dogo, American Bulldog, American Bully, and any mix thereof. Any dog that is mixed with a Bull breed may also be called a Pit Bull including those that are descended from the English Bulldog, French Bulldog, and Boston Terrier."

    My husband and I have been considering getting a dog for about a year now and discussed several breeds including German Shepherd, Rottweiller, Doberman and Boxer. Pit bull was never even considered until we happened to catch Cesars Pit Bull special. we have since decided to try a American Staffordshire terrier. Ohio recently unbanned the Pit but so far the only breeders we find are out of state. So the search continues!

    These dogs are smart, loyal, and very trainable. The actually want to have an important job to do. My Lily was living proof that these dogs are not dangerous. She was loving, loyal, sweet, and the smartest dog I've ever had the honor to call a family member.

      @Anna Smith Yes but even Cesar recognizes that control has to be maintained at all times or the dog can go red zone. By the wrong hands I don't necessarily mean bad people but also those who think dogs only need a weekly walk and little socializing.

    The Nanny Dog name for the staffy is a myth don't get me wrong lovely dogs just the whole nanny thing is not true.

    pitbulls are very passionate dogs. when they do something they do it to the extreme. if they're aggressive, they're extremely aggressive. if they're freindly, they're extremely friendly. some ppl even think too freindly. ppl actually dont like my cousins pit because she's too friendly. can you believe that? "can you get your dog? she keeps licking me" is what they say. i never had any complaints about my pit being too friendly(even though she is) but ppl have complained that she gave them showers from constant licking lol. ive NEVER had aggression issues with pits. its not because im lucky its because pitbull are naturally friendly. much like a lab. you cant expect every pitbull to be nice just like you cant expect all labs to be. if there are 500,000 pitbulls in the U.S. and 35,000 are aggressive, thats only 7% of the population. then again thats 35,000 potentially aggressive/defensive dogs. unfortunately for the pitbull ppl focus on the 7% and not the wonderful 93% that are friendly-er than your neighborhood golden retriever. also media and movies play huge roles in an ignorant human mind. ppl were never terrified of sharks until 'jaws' came out? thats ridiculous.

    Hey Cesar, any more episodes of "Cesar 911" upcoming?

  • RocketeerRaccoon

    Sadly Pit Bulls are banned in the UK because they are just deemed too dangerous and after all it was in England where Pit Bull Fighting began.

      @***** Yeah, stupid laws. They don't even work. There is around 80 different breeds with that bsl bullcrap like we see here - loveofmydogs.com/2012/06/10/75-dog-breeds-banned-dog-breed/. All these breeds under bsl, and for what? Old working Bulldogs? Those are actually Pitbull Terriers. Like this video shows us on its facts about them, Pitbull Terriers are the dogs that baited bulls and bears before their were bans on baiting and before dog fighting started. Now there is a dog that Pitbull Terriers are said to come from a dog calle the Alaunt - a war Mastiff used in wars and sometimes even in gladiatorial events against other animals. But the Pitbull Terrier is the real old working Bulldog. Here is more info about it - pitbulldefenders.wordpress.com/history/.

      @***** Yeah, and there's a lot of different Pitbull type dogs that are not banned and in the UK and are perfectly good to own there. But even with the ban, Pitbull Terriers are still being bred and sold in the UK. That's just how popular these dogs are. Like the Washington Post says in an article called - www.washingtonpost.com/local/experts-say-pit-bulls-dont-exist/2012/08/28/b0c410b8-f14c-11e1-b74c-84ed55e0300b_story.html - Pitbull is not just once breed of dog. Pitbull means dogs like the Pitbull Terrier, Staffy, AmStaff, AmBulldog, AmBully, bull terrier, and many others. And these same idiots that put the bans of certain Pitbull breeds sometimes can't even tell the difference between, many people just pass their dogs off as something else, and no one's the wiser.

      @RocketeerRaccoon Not really. Pitbull is just an umbrella term. I doubt they have banned all Pitbull type dogs like the staffy, bull terrier, AmBulldog, dogo, presa, corso, and not to mention any other breed or mix with a large, square-shaped head, muscles, chest, and short coat. Now they may have put a ban on certain Pitbull breeds like the Pitbull Terrier, but it is impossible to ban Pitbulls. It is even impossible for them to ban all Pitbull Terriers. I saw a documentary. There are still people breeding and selling Pitbull Terriers in the UK.

      @Cameron Mcmaster Oh I want to correct myself about leads, not all dogs can be used with a slip lead as some dogs have a lot of fur that can get tangled up in it. But yes, it's always comes down to the owner.

    I support Cesar Millan 100% but the whole "nanny dog" thing is a myth....I just recently learned that myself.

    • MicheleElys MER

      @Gabe Lee they were the _nanny dogs_ in these pictures and highly regarded. These downfall has been due to ignorance and blowhards, wanting attention, any attention. Dogs: we control what they get fed, how they live, when they are allowed out, how much love and attention they receive, how can they be dangerous, if we control their lives, It is what the human feeds them in demeanor, is what the outcome produces. e.g. our children for the most part, except dogs are loyal for life. It is a shame we are not loyal for their lives. @Cesar Millan If you happen to read this, I am searching for a wonderful Male Rottie to train for Service, for myself. I had Rotties for 23 year, my current Service dog, whom I adopted at the pound, is growing old, she is a Blue Heeler (Sade) and has cataracts blinding one eye. If you have/know of a wonderful mellow Rottie, I am interested. I adopt for life, have 2 Arabian horses of 16.5 to 18 years. Thank you

      @MicheleElys MER It actually says here that Pit Bulls do good with children. We can see images of them and children together without incident, and Cesar Millan even gives an example of how great his Pit Bull, Daddy, was with his daughter. So here, an authoritative figure on dogs with much experience handling dogs of all different breeds and types, including Pit Bulls, tells us how wonder they can be, especially with the right training, raising, and care.

      @Cesar Millan Mr. MIllan, I feel that it should definitely be put online, and that it deserves to be seen by more people. A great place to put it would be on your IRbin channel. It would be a great help to the Bull breed community, who support this amazing and versatile category of dogs, on the Internet as well as offline. I would really like to see the entire video myself and may never get to if it is not uploaded to the Internet.

      @Cesar Millan This seriously should be uploaded online. I don't buy into cable and I'm dieing to watch this. I have watched every episode of both the Dog Whisperer and Cesar 911. Would be really great to see this too for purchase through Amazon or Itunes. I really love your work. Please let us know if it goes online!
