Even IF The Facts Are On Our Side, The Court Of Public Opinion Is Against Us
Pitbulls and their owners have been demonized in the press as “criminals, drug dealers, gang members or dog fighters” and are at an extreme disadvantage to try to overcome the constant negative media hype.
Basically, media outlets don't even bother verify information in so-called “pitbull attacks” and breed identification is often reported incorrectly.
The media thrives on “pitbull” headlines – they make a FAST BUCK at the expense of innocent dogs and dog owners. This isn't responsible journalism - but they don't care as long as it sells papers, do they?
Politicians don’t care about the facts. They may know the facts, and responsible dog owners have presented the facts, but in many cases, politicians vote for breed bans or other breed specific legislation anyway.
The truth of the matter is that only a handful of pitbull owners are successful in opposing breed bans - unless they have a plan.
Pitbull owners lack organized representation AND have little or no money for lobbying and media campaigns.
There is no national dog organization with the resources to defend pitbull owners in local communities.
Basically, unless you are made of money or have powerful friends in high places, it’s nearly impossible to mount a solid defense against breed specific legislation.
The Bottom Line:
You're on your own! Unless you have a plan - a ready-to-go toolkit and roadmap to stop anti-Pit Bull laws from ever being passed.
Which is exactly why I wrote The Pitbull Owners Survival Guide - to help pitbull owners fight back.
