Q: What are the best pit bull bloodlines to buy?
I'm planning to buy a pit bull within the next couple of weeks. I would like to know which bloodlines are the best? Can I easily train this breed myself or do I need to leave the training to the professional trainers. I want my dog trained for protection.

How much experience do you have with training dogs? If you don't have any, you might want to let a professional handle it and show you how to control the dog. If you've had dogs before and raised them with no behavorial problems arising, you'd probably be fine training the dog itself.

For one it has been stated already, pit bulls are not guard dogs, They were bred for fighting and baiting. However, if you still want a pit bull there are many factors.
1) what kind of pit bull do you want?
one that has been bred to fight?
if so, look into adba registered dogs, not saying all are "game bred" but most are off of game bred bloodlines like eli,crenshaw,carver,colby,tudor,wild side, red boy,jocko.. just to name a few these are the REAL apbt and will not be bred for looks rather bred for drive and game. They arent pretty nor big. but they are real
2) do you want a ukc/akc show dog?
most UKC registered dogs are still considered American Staffordshire terriers in the real pit bull circles. even though there papers say APBT. Anybody can register a dog and call it a pit bull the UKC just wants money. Most of these dogs are not the true APBT rather the show dog version who is usualy bigger, structurally prettier, and less tenacious againts other animals. Not calling this dog a pussy by anymeans, i have had many UKC registered dogs that are very "hot" towards other animals. some lines. gaff,rowdytown,nevada,tacoma,lar-san,ro-ki,tufftown..
3)do you want a big ass dog that looks like a monster?
Bullies are the new fad. you will find them registered in the UKC and ABKC (american bully kennel club). Most are just oversized show dogs. bred by backyard breeders usually. I myself own one of razorsedge/muggelstone/greyline blood and hes a 90Ib monster. He is atheletic as hell for a bully i will say. YES any dog can be bred for protection just get him involved in SCHUZTHUND training and you should be fine. Despite show,game, or bully bred these dogs are capable of alot and def fast learners. dont listen to the people in here they dont know shit

First of all! most so called pitbulls, are so mixed and it gets harder and harder to find a true pit nowadays..With all these bully breeds being mistaken for true pits..Colby Bloodline is one of or thee oldest bloodlines to date and are true pits with true gamness! 45 to 65 max.. not these 90lb plus pits u see today.. People have softened many breeds and actually without knowing it or on purpose have tainted many breeds of there natural instincts and characteristics which in the end ruins the breeds!
