Hi. Welcome to the forum.Hello, I’m looking for a American pitbull terrier breeder preferably in Southern California I plan on getting one for personal protection and maybe do some sports in the future.
I was going for personal protection just in case of anything but I would be open to do sports instead. And there’s a dog trainer near me that trains apbt in personal protection he’s a great trainer. But I understandHi. Welcome to the forum.
While I understand the allure of getting a dog for personal protection, especially as a woman, (and believe me, I do understand) it's not the best idea. Why? Because a dog doesn't know the difference between an attacker trying to do you harm, and a paramedic, firefighter or a policeman trying to save your life. And if your dog attacks an innocent person, or worse, someone trying to save your life, you could find yourself on the wrong side of the law, and your dog put down.
Guardian breeds have the instinct to guard, of course, but in order to be safe around the general public, those instincts have to be refined and honed by training. And I'm not talking about the general dog training group in town which teaches your dog to walk to heel and sit on command. I'm talking about specific protection training, and as per the first link, not all dogs have what it takes to be a protection dog:

APBTs aren't protection dogs. They were bred to fight, so I'd be surprised if reputable owners would sell to someone hoping to keep one of their pups as a guard or protection dog.
Much better, and safer all round, to invest in a personal alarm, CCTV for your home, and mobile phone apps that can alert the emergency services for you if you are attacked.
I'm in California and State Farm insured my home and I've since had 2 Pitbulls and a Dogo Argentino that they are well aware of. They don't breed discriminate, at least that's what my sales lady told me. She even has photos of my Dogo Argentino. I can't speak to a dog that is specifically trained for protection.Keep in mind that you may find it impossible to get homeowners or renters insurance with the double strike of having a pitbull with protection training. You may also find that owning a pitbull limits your housing options. One of my relatives had to rehome her pitbull after her landlord sold the house she was renting. She couldn't find another landlord willing to rent to a pit bull owner.
I will have pitweiler puppies of working quality, perfect temperament, mom and dad are both pure. You pay shipping plus 1500 which includes all needles, all deworm, microchip and 30 free health insurance.Hello, I’m looking for a American pitbull terrier breeder preferably in Southern California I plan on getting one for personal protection and maybe do some sports in the future.
