Pit Bulls Are Chiller Than Chihuahuas

Pit Bulls Are Chiller Than Chihuahuas

New evidence suggests that in many situations, America’s most feared dog is as docile as other breeds.

The Irish Examiner called Rottweilers “time bombs on legs.” The Supreme Court of Kansas called pit bulls “a public-health hazard.” Dostoyevski called the bloodhound “a terrible beast.” But new data suggests that stereotypes of breeds and aggression might warrant a closer look.

My website, Dognition, gathers data on dog behavior by leading paid subscribers through games designed to test their pets’ cognition. Recently, a random sample of people who played the games was asked how aggressive their dogs were in various situations—toward people who were new or familiar, children who were new or familiar, and dogs who were either new, familiar, bigger, or smaller. More than 4,000 dog owners responded.
