They are aggressive dogs... but that has to be given direction..

They play hard.. and are fierce and loyal...

I would play with my dogs all the time. I still have 3 other dogs. And we are always doing something.

When it was just me and Gambit, we would play tug of war for hours as a time. But he got so strong that I ended up tying my end of the rope to a tree... and just holding it.. and all he did pull and pull.... (granted pitbulls are smart but NOT a rocket sceintist)

I taught him to fetch.. but he would hold a tennis ball in his mouth.. if I told him to "Kill It!".. he would squeeze until it was punctured.. then that tennis ball would be shredded in less than a minute.

Dogs are like people.. they will mirror their surroundings and how they are brought up.

The difference is Dogs are animals...and people are not. People are people. Essentially dogs are stimulas and response. They dont have a conscious mind...Classical Conditioning wont wipe away ancient drives.

People have a full and proper conscious mind. Dogs do not.

That is a VERY big difference indeed.
