Be Polite Break Sticks
A Break-Stick or as we like to refer to them a "Polite Stick" is an efficient tool that can be used to "break" the bite of a tenacious, determined Pit Bull.
Pit Bulls have a great love for people, are affectionate and intelligent. They may live amicably among other animals for their entire lives. However any dog of any breed can get into a fight. Unintentional, accidental dog fights do happen. Even the most well behaved, friendly, docile dog could find itself in a dog fight. Dog fights can be scary but even scarier is not being able to break them up.
A Pit Bulls natural instinct is to bite and hold which is very typical of terrier breeds. Pit Bulls do not have any special locking jaw, their jaw is the same as any other dog, but what they do have is an enormous amount of determination and tenacity, the true nature of a terrier. "Pit Bull" is not an official breed of dog it is a generic slang term used to describe the American Pit Bull Terrier, American Staffordshire Terrier, Staffordshire Bull Terrier and any mixes there of.
Most dog breeds bite erratically and blindly - snapping, biting and releasing. Pit Bulls tend to bite and hold when fighting. If a dog is biting and releasing a break-stick will not be of any use, but if a dog has a hold on and won’t let go a break-stick can facilitate a break. A break-stick helps give you the leverage to open a determined dogs jaw. (For this reason and for your own safety you should not use a break stick on any other breed of dog).
With Pit Bull breeds, the break stick is one of the quickest and safest ways to break up a fight. Straddle your dog, grab the collar with one hand, and insert the break stick in the opening behind the molars and twist. The leverage will cause them to adjust their bite onto the stick allowing you to pull them away so that you can regain control.
The first step to any good dog owner is to understand the breed, know the breed history and the characteristics of the breed. Responsible owners must be vigilant to do what they can to prevent any fights before they start, but they should also be prepared and capable of breaking up an accidental fight, should one happen and to be able to do it as quickly as possible. Any time a Pit Bull gets into a fight, even if started by another dog the Pit Bull will be blamed for it.
