Programs: BR's programs include our popular Pit Ed Classes offer free dog training to pit bull owners and free coaching so dogs can qualify for their CGC (Canine Good Citizen) Certification. This program benefits 250 pit bull owners and their dogs.

BR provides responsible ownership education at various outreach events throughout the year (pet fairs, parades, and various public workshops and events)

BR runs a popular website with pertinent, up to the minute information to help pit bull owners be better informed. The website records an average of 2500 visitors each day.

BR answers up to 1000 emails and phone calls a year from dog owners seeking seasoned advice on a variety of issues related to pit bulls.

BR operates a successful rescue program to offer salvation and relief to 40-50 homeless pit bulls a year. Rescued dogs are home fostered, trained and matched up with qualified, well screened homes.

Education, Rescue, Support.

Education: BR coaches pit bull owners by offering free breed specific information, responsible ownership protocol and dog training. Shelters receive training and materials to help them match sound dogs with qualified adopters. The public receives breed specific information to help demystify this challenging breed.

Rescue: BR hand selects needy dogs from bay area shelters as we have room, trains them in home fostercare settings, and matches them with permanent, well screened adopters.

Support: Pit bull owners receive support to help prevent them from surrendering their dogs to the overcrowded shelter system. They also receive camaraderie, socialization opps and healthy dog exercise outlets to help them enjoy their pets and remain responsible dog owners.
