Pitbull Or Rottweiler: Which Is More Dangerous?

When you go through most pet websites and watch some animal videos you discover they talk about this breed of dogs as killer dog i:e the rottweiler and the pitbull.

I got a gist that some of the western countries have stared making the bans of the two particular breed.

From my own experience i believe the Pitbull is More dangerous cos of its stubbornness but think the Rottweilers are most Deadly and calm for me.

What do u think?

I'm not one pretending to be a teacher, but I must say I agree with the comment regarding the "joysticks"!

And what makes you think it's a guy? I believe they were talking in general about owners, you're not that smart if you think

it includes everyone. I've had all types of dogs including wolves and they are absolutely right about that too. My wolf got

Scratched hard by a raccoon which he left alone after that and a big chow was able to scratch out his eye which he grew back

amazingly enough. I was away at the time. Will have to look into the fila.

According to the Humane Society of the USA (2009) "Pit Bull Terriers also constitute the majority of dogs used for illegal dog fighting in the America" ...

Of course People love to use Rotts, Boerboels and other Mastiff type dogs for bloodsports. As long as you are a stranger to the dog, both breeds are dangerous. If you have children or there are children in your compound, both breeds are quite strong dogs. They can easily unintentionally hurt children while playing with them. In general I would say Pitbulls are more dangerous because of their jealous nature. They are very much monogamous... one master, one dog. From my experience, they are very jealous and love it when they are all alone with their master.

A rottie is bread to be a working farm dog originally, big and strong to pull carts etc, although you wont see this in modern day life, they are territorial yes but they are loyal and obedient, the pittbull is not a working dog, but its build qualities are that to do damage, short legs muscluar making ideal for getting to the throats of other dogs and animals, a rottie will attack solely to defend its territory if threatened or its owner, a pitt will attack because it got out of the wrong side of the kennel that morning, the pittbull needs to be kept in check constantly, the moment it feels its alpha is the moment your gonna realise just how destructive they are, I have a rottie named beau, she sleeps on the floor at the end of my bed and follows me everywhere, she plays with the kids next door and has never even knocked them over, she has been attacked by a few dogs but never retaliated, she just fends them off, I know what she can do and is capable of, and no doubt if I gave her the go when (heaven forbid) it happens again then she would do some terrible damage, but im in charge, youll have a hell of a time teaching a pitt this discipline, but im not saying it cant be done, but a pitt is far more likely to come at you, as always its down to the owner, good luck with yours its beautiful

I have both pit bulls, one female (RockC) and one male (Mister) from her first and only liter of pups, and a rott (JAG). I love them all. Our rott has been the only of the three to show protective aggression - and on multiple occasions. The two pitts are as loving and athletic as ever, I think the only thing RockC has ever attacked is the tree in our back yard or park, trying to catch birds and squirrels...

Okay,

I read these opinions and have to ponder. My home is home to my four dogs, cat and beautiful daughters. My Pit is a blue fawn, filled with love and happiness as proven in this picture. When you raise them with unconditional love, this is all they know and My Pit is scared to death of my male Shitzu who is the leader of the pack. They all sleep together including the cat-- where are you all getting this twisted information.SHAME ON YOU! animals ARE JUST LIKE PEOPLE--they all have their own personalities. Amen!

Once again sir you prove my point I'm concerned about the fact that you are upset with other people's mistakes in life or errors. The forum is about which dog is tougher I know about both dogs because I own both breeds of dogs. Please by all means seek help, I know that your parents touching you in inappropriate places can do things to mess you up so I recommend going to a counselor. I also recommend getting educated before you wind up in jail and someone's bottom Dam. By the way I don't drive a lifted anything to compensate for anything, like your mom does, I drive a simple 2005 Chevy blazer. I have four dogs and that makes it easier to haul them around.

This gentlemen obviously has some kind of mental deficiency. First off your article is one giant run on sentence, secondly your grammar is worse than my seven year old daughters, and third your obsession with the size of other people's joystick' concerns me.

The fact is not everyone that has a pitbull got them because they are supposedly tough. Most people get them because they are wonderfully loving dogs. They are dogs that would give their life for you and only ask for your love as payment. My suggestion to you sir is to return to school, get a girlfriend or boyfriend whichever you prefer, and stop trying to play in the big boy leagues. Oh and by the way me and my wife both make a considerable amount of money, do not do drugs, and laughed when you assumed all pitbull owners, such as myself, have very tiny joystick'. Go read a book and get back to me when you can form a legitimate and cogent sentence.

Before posting about spelling errors make sure you can spell " ridiculous", and "focus/focusing". Secondly your approach to the subject is an ideal example of the ignorance of which you speak. The grammar and spelling errors in your post, not to mention your opinion on how we should handle these people, is exactly the wrong stance to take. Do I agree that people who fight pit bulls should be taught a lesson? Yes I do, but shooting the people and the dogs is the wrong way to go about it. A lot of those poor animals can be rehabilitated and reintroduced to society as well behaved and wonderful dogs. The people deserve a long sit in a jail cell and should be banned from owning any animals and it should be made public knowledge that they cannot. Violence to end violence is almost never the answer. Which you would understand if you were competent enough to have an actually good opinion about the sanctity of human life.

Ok I had to do it. The lack of education and spelling in this response thread is redicoulous to say the least. Before you even post in this thread, make sure you can spell correctly and write correctly. Damn ignorance,people need to focuss on graduating from 1st grade English rather than focussing on which dog is aggressive, which takes no education level to discuss this topic.

Read a freaking book,damn I swear. No wonder why our country is made fun of for the lack of educated people with a brain. It's sad, really sad.

Ok now onto the topic at hand. I am a firm believer that all aggressive Pitts should be put down literally. And all of the owners who've raised their dogs to be such should be shot in the head literally. There is no place for any dogs acting this way PERIOD. Owners should know better and treat these dogs as lovable pets and only as such. That is all I'm going to say on this topic and leave before the next who can't spell or write chimes in.

I originally read this at my wife's request and found it kind of comical...that is until I learned how dumb most of you were. Okay let's start from the top, whoever said that a pitbull can eat a whole human should never EVER reproduce...EVER. Secondly whoever said that a pitbull can bite with over 2000 pounds of bite force should go drown themselves because your screwing up the gene pool with your idiocy. Let's address these statements one at a time: first off a pitbull CANNOT eat a human whole UNLESS given several days without food as a dog can go several weeks without eating, secondly a 2000 pound bite force is equivalent to that of a crocodile! How in Jesus's name you got that and where you got that I don't wanna know because it is so wrong it's almost unfathomable how dumb let alone incorrect that statement is, thirdly pitbulls DO not have a locking jaw... This is purely and utterly false. NO dog has a locking jaw the only reason pitbull haters suggest a break stick is because a pitbull was bred for what's called gameness, willingness to bite and not let go, and high prey drive, should be self explanatory. However pitbulls that were bred PROPERLY have human aggression taken out of them through simple breeding. Now I'm already aware the next argument is gonna be " but their dog aggressive" well once again that is incorrect, pitbulls prey drive can be a problem if silly people, such as most of you, do not educate yourselves on or excercise your pitbull. Excercise for a pitbull is EXTREMELY important as is socialization. With proper excercise and socialization 98% of problems with pitbulls can be fixed. Now most pitbulls are stubborn and require a firm, but not abusive or forceful, hand which means somehow most of you nimrods who have problem pitbulls need to grow a set and be the alpha male in that relationship. Pitbulls are all around wonderful dogs and I'm sure most of you don't know pitbulls consistently out rank the dogs everyone classifies as " good family dogs" such as golden retrievers and labs in behavioral and temperament testing. Pitbulls are also INCREDIBLY tolerant of children and in fact will follow them to protect them. It's apparent that most of you buy into the media hype about them which is completely bias and ignorant. It is almost impossible to identify a pitbull correctly from a lot of different breeds of dogs. Not a single news station has someone specifically there to identify dog breeds and in fact there are over thirty breeds considered pitbulls most of which are not actually pitbulls. Next time you hear about these pitbull attacks call the news station and ask them how they are sure. You will not get a direct or correct response 95% of the time. This brings me to how I know all this, as a responsible pet owner I did a MASSIVE amount of research without buying into the media hype. I also own a pitbull AND a rotty and can tell you if I had my way I would never EVER own any other kind of dogs. If you are going to get EITHER of these dogs don't be a dumbass and do your unbiased and actually smart research and quit contaminating the world with your complete and utter stupidity.

I always find the arguments of those against Pit Bulls to be amusing. "A Pit Bull can eat a whole human alive"??! I'm sorry but you are an and embarrassing yourself. The average American Pit Bull Terrier weighs 55lbs. Even being generous to our overweight society, lets say the average human weighs 180lbs. So, basically you're telling me a dog can eat over three-times its weight? Not likely, its a dog, not a snake!

Statements like these lead me to question where these avid Pit Bull haters find their "facts", because they are so obviously a crock of bologna it's laughable. Basing an argument on a preconceived notion is foolish, and making things up is a sure fire way to not only lose an argument, but to utterly embarrass yourself in the process. You see, due to the continued attacks of ignorant society, responsible Pitty owners have gone to great lengths to educate ourselves. We don't need to make facts up as the only proof we need is our wonderful, well balanced, cared for and tempered Pittys! The fact is that by nature Pit Bulls are very loving and loyal dogs. Unfortunately, the fact that they are natural athletes as well has given the entire breed a bad reputation. I am a behaviorist, as is my father. My father specializes in aggression. Do you know how many Pit Bull clients he has had in his 25+ year career? None. The most common clients have been Poodles, Golden Retrievers, Labs, Chow Chows and a large variety of small breed dogs. I have never been bitten by a Pit Bull, nor have I ever had a Pit Bull assert aggression towards me, ever. I have been attacked by Dalmations, Golden Retrievers, Poodles, and several small breed dogs, but never a Pit Bull.

I will agree that any dog can be turned bad at the hand of a bad owner. If you were abused your entire life, you would too - its instinctive. The people to blame for this is not the breed or public, it's those few bad owners. Placing a Scarlett Letter on a breed does not fix the problem, it hides it. The fact is most Pits you meet are very well mannered with good temperaments. If you have a preconceived notion or stigma about the breed, I encourage you not to put blinders on and dig your heels in, but educate yourself, get out there and experience a Pitty first hand - basically, don't just believe the media hype or the blasphemy you see on the Internet, see it for yourself!

So, if you want to continue to live in ignorance, with the wool pulled over your eyes, by all means, be our guest. I wish the same fate for each of you that you wish to bestow on unoffending animals, whatever that may be.

Take care!

So many pit bull owners say, "People are to blame.  If you raise the dog properly, they are not dangerous.  My dog is a lover."  That is the standard line.  But even if you do ignore the statistics, and accept the nature vs nurture arguments,   That's still does not re-assure me in the slightest.

Why?  Because, I'm the perspective neighbor.  Not the perspective owner.

For every Pit that is purchased and brought home, on average, about 50 people become neighbors to this dog.  Usually, without being asked, or even without knowing at all. And statistically, the people attacked by Pit bulls are more often neighbors or people the dog is unfamiliar with. So, those exposed to the greatest risk, have no knowledge or say so, in bringing the dog among their children.

And there in lies the problem.  The standard line is ignorant of the fact, that you can't control your neighbor.  Neighbors sometimes raise Pits improperly, and you can't control that. I can't force my neighbor to be responsible, or kind to his animals.

And I certainly don't want my 7 year old playing in my yard, when I can't guarantee that the neighbor is properly raising and restraining the Pit next door.

The point is not that we can't change the Pit.  It is that we cannot change people.  There will always be evil people that abuse those dogs.  And my 7 year old, is powerless to change that.  So, why expose her to any risk of attack, when this is not her problem?

At the same time, why should I have to lock up my daughter, so that the Pit can run free?

Bottom line: Pit ownership is not fair to neighbors.  IMO, unless you have signatures from the neighbors, you have no right to expose their children to such risks, or force them in doors to avoid risk.  You may believe you are a responsible owner, but all Pit owners think that of themselves. And how are we Pit neighbors suppose to know the difference, with enough confidence to allow our children in the yard?

I agree that Pit Bull Terriers are good dogs, but thier explosive nature is a concern to me when the owners do not take care of these dogs properly. I know that constant abuse & neglect over a period of time takes a toll on these dogs behavior. My fear is you don’t know what will set them off to attack. I have a really great friend that his wife had come home from work in the country and the next door neighbours 3 pit bulls had dug under his fence and got out roaming around when she arrived home and got out of her car all 3 pit bulls attacked her and draged her over the hill and severly malled her. Her husband got home to find her car door open and heard her screaming over the hill where they had dragged her and left her in terrible condition for many months. I know this doesn’t happen often but you really need some type of self defense protection just in case.

I've owned both breed of dogs and loved both of them with my all and of course did research and obsered both. Pitt Bills are dangerous becuase some times not even the owner can have conrol of them, yes they do have powerful bite but the only danderous part about getting bit by an pitt bull is the lock of the jaws when they lock on to your libs its hard to get loose. But rotts have more of a powerful bite, more powerful than a pitt bull, but the jaws just don't lock on you, and rotts have that instint to prey on you if they want you without a bark bark or any kind of idictcation of their presents(smart)rotts are also easy to train compare to pitt bulls that's what makes pitt bulls a threat. But I love both dogs though. Pitt Bulls are abused everyday becuase people treat them like a threat and needs to stop they are beutiful.

in my opinion, i think rottweilers are more dangerous. i own a 145 pound pure breed german rottweiler. considering the fact that rottweilers have been around longer, are obviously larger. the fact that they have a double set of teeth and the highest bite power of any domestic dog at 348 pounds of pressure per square inch. depending on the size of the head the bigger the head the harder the bite. they are definatly more deadly. they have been around for 100s of years and have allways been around to pull carts and be attack dogs. my friend has a pitt and he thinks it would take my dog, yet all my other friends are sure my dog would absolutly molest his. i will say for fighting dogs the pitt has the advantage of speed, but not bite power or size. its like putting a brute against a scrapper. theyre are going to be times when the pitt gets the advantage and it could absolutly take a rott down. but if the rott gets hismouth on that pitbull its all over. my dog would absolutly rip one to shred all afternoon.

This is generally the way it is (not always): You have a Rottweiler, you train it to be a fighting dog, it would generally be able to take any dog not without training (and some that are trained), although this isn't always the case, it usually is. If you train a Pitbull (of any sort) to be a fighting dog, basically the same way you would a Rottweiler, and the Rottweiler and the Pitbull fight, 9 out of 10 times, the Pitbull's going to come out better than the Rottweiler. This is because they are bred for fighting. Pitbulls are crosses between bulldogs and terriers, originally bred for fighting. They don't do any other job particularly well.

But there are exceptions.

I am one year away from collecting my degree in animal science and the fact is that both dogs are dangerous. They both have the properties to kill just like many other dogs do. They both have fatal bites and are both very strong dogs both mentally and physically.

Rottweilers are instinctively guard dogs, they are the most loyal, protective, obedient and also calmest breed of dog along with German Shepherds-fact. Which is why police use them. Rottweilers are not fighters they are protectors, their nature is to protect their pack (family) and are willing to kill those who bring danger. But they will not spontaneously attack unless taught to do so by the leader of their pack (owner).

It's in a Pitbull's nature to fight which stems from the natural instinct of hunting and needing to fight for their survival as they are small dogs, but they have a deadly bite and a muscular frame to their disposal. This does not mean that all Pitbulls will attack, like all dogs Pitbulls are loving to their pack but are by nature factually more likely to attack randomly (even someone from their pack) purely because of their survival instinct, even if their owner has not raised them to do so. Which is why Pitbulls are banned in the UK and many other places and Rottwielers are not.

All dogs have different characteristics, the way a dog behaves is not purely because of the way they have been baught up. Some dogs are guard dogs, some dogs are retrievers, some dogs are herders etc, different breeds of dogs do naturally behave in certain ways. But it is up to the owner to control these behaviours whether it be to emphasise the behaviour such as retrieving or control a behaviour such as guarding, and if an owner does not properly take action to make their dog a happy, healthy, well behaved, obedient dog then that is where these natural behaviours show up in unwanted ways and cause these ridiculous attack stories where the poor dog always draws the short straw.

Fact.

Seriously people you are blameing the dog?better yet a breed? The dog is called mans best friend for a reason, it's cause they are they most loyal animal. If you raise your child violent will it be violent?apsolutely. If you raise your child nicely respectfull and kind will it most likely be that way?yes! Why is a dog diferent.I personaly believe rottwielersand pittbulls are the best dogs on the earth. Mans best friend would do anything for it's owner aka it's hero. You make it fight it will fight for you till the death. I have been around these dogs my entire life never been bit by nothin but a chiwawa. It's how you raise the dog so it's on us people. Are the dogs capable of damage yes. But if you raise them to not be violent they won't be.you have these dogs and you need help these dogs are hot on it.they will give there life to save a lo ved ones.believe it! So stop blaming the dog blame the one who,neglects it,beats it,trains it to be violent, starves it, and blame the dog cause it will do anything for it's owner and there owner says fight I dought you people have even had these dogs no you see pitbulls fight on the news it's caused they were raised by the owner to fight! It's a simple concept to get. Don't judge the dog. Cause if they band these dogs. People will find another breed to make fight intell all dogs are ban. So instead of ending the breed and the dog fights. If you disagree research it.once again it's the OWNER not the DOG!

Nice thread. Well, when I was young, I had a TERIBLE experience with a rot, which made me see them as devils not until I owned one, rots are cool. I think it depends on some factors in which it was bred.

I'm realy in love with the breed now.

May I say this: I describe a dog as dangerous if it attacks the person who feeds it and/or its immediate neigbours (animal/human).

It's normal for a rot to attack strangers.

ROTS AINT DANGEROUS~~~~ maybe pitbulls are.

All of you peoples are aguing over silly things. Cops use Rotweilers for a reason. Pitbulls are more agressive and are bread to fight lions, Rotweilers are the more calm and obediant version, get a Rotweiler and it will care and protect your family. i used to have a pitbull, every time i went by it's bowl it would growl and bite me.

Pitbull: DANGOURUS

Rotweiler: Dangerous but can be trained. animal planet will give you the facts.

heh your all idiots to stay on topic for a min both dogs can be very dangerous but so can any dog ever that has a mouth big enough to actually do any harm it depends alot on how the dog is raised and still they could be mean if they are super inbred just like unbred humans they can get a little messed up in the head i do not know alot about rots besides they are used alot as gaurd dogs because they were bred to be a bit more aggressive toward humans but i do know for a fact that pure bred pit bulls are not naturally aggressive toward humans because they were made to fight other dogs they were bred to not be aggrissive toward humans because at dog fights the opposite dog owners would wash the dog that their dog was going to fight to make sure that the owner didnt oil its skin or anything back in the 1800s pitbulls were quite larger dogs and bred to be put in a ring with bulls to fight for entertainment they would also tie up bears and let the putbulls fight them as well since then they have been bred down to be smaller dogs that are aggressive toward animals but if raised with other animals then they will not be aggressive towards them they are infact very smart dogs and if you retards would do any research at all you would find out that they are one of the most decorated dogs alive they were used in WWI and WWII for search and rescue dogs they have been in movies they were used to help find survivors in the murah building boming in oklahoma city they were also the number 1 dog used ti find survivors in the world trade center attacks on 9/11 if you dont believe me then look it up!!!! it is mostly their owners that make them aggresive that and if they arent pure bred then they can become slow i have owned a pit for years i got it at the age of 5 from my brother it was raised with a 8 year old child that would ride it around pull its ears bite its tail hell the child probably got curious and stuck his finger up the dogs Bottom and it never once got irritated and bit the child he was also in a house with a newborn baby the only way he could of ever harmed either of them was my licking them to death he was never aggressive at all ever he was a very hyper dog when you got him outside he would run and run and run for hours but would come straight back to you if you called for him i was only around the dog 2 or 3 times when my brother owned him but he had to get rid of him so i willingly took him cuz he was an awesome dog when i got him he took to me very quickly never once was he aggressive he loved every person in the world i had him for bout 3 years he stayed outside when i had him i caught him with other dogs in his dog house even a freaking racoon he never killed anything accept maybe a bug that he layed on the only thing dangerous about him was his tail it would kinda hurt that and he scared the poo out of you when he was running at you cuz he was every bit of 120lbs but he would stop and turn around as soon as he got to you i had to give him away to a friend that never in his life met the dog i wasnt at home at the time when the guy got there and my pit was barking and growling at him as any big dog owner would want you have them to protect your property and he was good at keeping people out of the yard but and soon and i got there the man came up to my pit and pet him a little to get a feel for the dog and he loaded the pit up in the cab of his truck gave him a little water and drove off and to this day has never given the owner 1 bit of trouble other then he eats alot the pit is about 10 years old now and is still a big ball of energy but i and i would take any todler over to him right now even in his old age and let the kid ride him around the yard so please you retards dont tell me that all pitbulls are the devil and are murderers because they are not bred to be aggressive toward humans any size shape or color all though black people do scare them if they arent around many because dogs see in black and white and they look kinda funny but they wont hurt them so the next time you see on the new that another ppitbull ripped some little girls arm go go see for your self if its a real full blood pitbull cuz i can almost guarentee that its not!
