I like pit bulls.. And I have nothing against them, I just PREFER not to have my kid in a day care with one or animals at all for that matter lol. I don't do home day cares anyways..

Uh...no. Genetics play a pretty large part. There are breeds that are just born aggressive. Dogs have personalities just like humans and there are traits that tend to show in certain breeds more than others...just like there are traits passed down through human families. Like aggression. Which is why jack Russell's are used to fight c***s and pits are bred to fight each other.

Yeah it's just my preferences I prefer not to have my child in a home day care, and i prefer not to have my child in a day care with animals etc.. I have nothing against pit bulls my SO use to have one they are pretty friendly and I haven't had any bad experiences with them. It wasn't JUST because of the dog lol.

now its clear, Im not sure probably not if i didn't know the dog, I dont trust my parents or inlaws dogs around my DD un-watched so I wouldn't really feel safe if I couldn't see the interactions IYKWIM.

Okay! I don't think I would ever send DD to a home day care, but I know of a home day care in my area with a pit living there. If it is a licensed home daycare I don't see the issue, but if not it would seem extra sketchy

...the aggression that was bred into them for hunting is exactly what i'm talking about, genius.



I'm also pretty sure I never said
Dalmatians or labs are great either. In fact I explicitly stated all dogs make me nervous and I don't want them near my child. Because I was attacked by a dachshund.

my parents have a dopey russell and my inlaws have a collie cross saluki so its nothing at all to do with breeds you're absolutely right, We don't have our own dog but once the baby is 2-3 we will be looking for a dog, for me i would not want a big dog but that's because i prefer middley sized breeds - I would like a mongrel terrier really.

I really can't believe people are actually stupid enough to act like genetic traits don't exist.

I don't think that at all, what I DO think, however is that not all dogs with those traits display them all the time or at all in some cases. I don't really want to get into a row about it,dogs make me nervous too i have to get to know any dog before I would spend time alone with them. Much less allow my child to spend time with them.

except not, my grandpa breeds wolfhounds and my mother was a vet tech with a vast love and knowledge of dog breeds :lol:



Chihuahua's are a fearful, neurotic breed bred down for centuries to be small and attached at the hip to their owners, which give them an assload of temperament problems . I don't believe I ever said only aggressive breeds bite, did I?

Uh...and did I ever say ALL dogs of a breed act the same way? Do all members of a human family always act the same?



Saying the breed has nothing to do with temperament is wrong and stupid. Nature comes through very strongly over nurture when it comes to things like prey drive and lunging instincts.
