The wonderful book The Pit Bull Placebo: The Media, Myths and Politics of Canine Aggression is now available for FREE DOWNLOAD from the National Canine Research Council website: Pit Bull Placebo
This book is a thoughtful, well-researched analysis of the "dangerous breed" phenomenon and its evolution and perpetuation.
Why is breed-specific legislation proposed? What are the problems with it?
How do certain breeds get stereotyped as "dangerous"?
Who is responsible for the perpetuation of the "dangerous/safe breed" mythology?
What are the facts about dog aggression and dog attacks?
Karen Delise's book The Pit Bull Placebo will answer all these questions and much more. It's a quick, educational, enlightening read!
I consider it one of a handful of "must reads" for pit bull owners. Please take advantage of the free download at the link above. (You will need Adobe Reader to view the book; this program is also free at Adobe's website.)
