This breed oriented nonprofit does more for it's chosen breed than any group I have ever met. They cover it all from going out of state to help rescue to local school education. They fully support all the Pittbull owners. And the one thing that I think is most important: they regularly combat the general public opinion of Pittbulls. They take the dogs out into the public streets, the schools & special programs for the public to discover how nice these dogs really are. This is called: CHANGING MINDS.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Find a way to get them more volunteers and more money to carry on with.

My special field is therapy dogs. I helped get the BCBC going with therapy dogs of their breed and they now have many. This is a very good way to show off the natural temprament of any breed, but it is a great way to combat the public opinion of this breed. Also, I have 52yrs. in dog training and I have never seen any dog club put forth more effort to get their breed trained and into the public eye. I know and they know that Pit Bulls are wonderful dogs. The BCBC is the best at proving that.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Public events and schools where others come into contact with their dogs.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

NOTHING! Their dedication is unblieveable.

Will you volunteer or donate to this organization beyond what is required of advisors?

I met the people of the BCBC because I am a tester for Therapy Dogs. They wanted to get some of their dogs into this wonderful work. I know a lot about dogs due to my 50years of experience, but I still got an education about Pit Bulls from Jeremy, Michelle & Danielle. When I observed them with their dogs working with the children for the R.E.A.D. program, I got to see some of the best dog handling I have ever seen.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the area of Therapy Dog visits. I have seen these people talk innercity teenagers into the proper way to handle and live with a Pit Bull.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

get them more help to be tutored by Jeremy & Michelle inorder to expand their operation.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

I have a chance to further my knowledge about a great breed of dog from people who are very goal oriented.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

ordinary people that acted in a very professional manner.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

expand the great work these hardworking people are doing now with very little money.

Ways to make it better...

all of us had more time to devote to the Pit Bull cause.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Breed prejudice, lack of staff and lack of time.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I enjoy all the time I get to spend with these people and their beautiful dogs.

I am a Tester/Observer for Therapy
Dogs Inc. I have tested and observed several of the BCBC member Pit Bulls and find them to be great therapy dogs. I wish some of the good things these dogs do could make the news instead of just the few bad things.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

R.E.A.D. situations and meet & greets.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

get them more money to work with. They do a great job with little money.

Will you volunteer or donate to this organization beyond what is required of advisors?

Unsure

How much of an impact do you think this organization has?
