Dogs sense nervousness and anxiety, and it makes them feel the same way. Have you ever thought about why you are nervous around the pitbull? Is it the media hype, the rumors and stories you have heard? That is the first question to ask yourself.
I have two female pitbulls, and I don’t have children. However my friends have children, and even though my dogs have not been raised with kids, they are very protective of my friends kids. My nephew who is now 12, has been protected by my dogs since the day he was born.
