The American Pit Bull Terrier is known by many names (Pit Bull, Pittie, Pit…) Despite the past few decades of undue slander against this breed, the Pit Bull continues to be a popular house pet. An average sized dog (contrary to stories that they are huge and muscle-bound), Pit Bulls do well as service dogs and guard dogs, and are eager to please. As with any dog originally bred for fierce work — pit fighting, in this case– socialization, obedience training, and a firm yet gentle hand are needed to bring out the best in this intelligent, happy breed.
American Pit Bull Terrier Dog Collars
The Pit Bull’s all-American silhouette and happy disposition suits almost any fun collar style, as well as the classic leather look. As long as the collar is sturdy enough to hold up to your Pit’s level of activity, fun synthetic prints and unique but durable fabrics like hemp are great options. The breed’s average neck size is 14”- 18”. See the Fun Prints Collars and Eco-Friendly Collars to get started with some Pit Bull collar ideas. And if your Pit likes the tough-guy look, check out the Spiked Collars and Studded Collars.
