No other breed has the diversity of look and body the AB does: we have micros, pockets, standard, classics, XL, and Exotics in the mix. There are certain lines asking up to $10,000 in fees, others asking for pennies or just a pup back deal.

Does our love for everything Bully imply something about our personalities? On her blog, The Mindful Self-Express, clinical psychologist Melanie Greenburg confirms three facts about canines and one of them might not sit so well with the Bully Community. Read her findings about owners of “aggressive” breeds, the effect of our dogs on our health, and if dogs really do tend to look like their owners.

How do you explain the death of a pet to a young child? All dog owners with children of their own (or kids familiar with our pets) will at some point have to address what happens when our pups leave this world.

There are many products on the market, but breeding is a unique-- and sometimes fickle--market.

After our Facebook page went public a couple weeks ago, we received tons of feedback concerning our first major post Exotic Bullies: A Disaster Waiting to Happen. It is obvious that the topic of Exotics is a controversial one, with strong feelings on both sides of the issue.

Hopefully we all have certain traits we breed for to distinguish our line from the rest. You know you can’t just throw two dogs together and achieve the look and build you want. There is also the task of extinguishing undesirable traits and genetic diseases. Take this little quiz from the Institute of Canine Biology to test your knowledge of the genetics of breeding:

Canine Cognitive Dysfunction is a progressive disease that seems to sneak up on us. One sign turns into several symptoms over the course of 6-12 months. Sometimes the changes are not that obvious until we think back to how our dog acted a year ago.

Ethylene Glycol is a sweet-tasting, but deadly compound found in antifreeze, some brake fluids and coolants, and deicing products. Dogs love to lick this stuff up, until its nasty aftertaste kicks in. But usually by that time it is too late.

One of the major goals of our editorial staff is to educate and inform newcomers to the Bully world. We have learned (at times the hard way) that if you don’t have a strong connection to the community getting started can be difficult. There are a lot of breeders out there advertising themselves as the best to ever do it. There is a lot of contradicting information if you rely on the internet. If you don’t know any better it is easy to fall victim to bad information.

This past weekend a major Bully registry crowned an English Bulldog, Grand Champion Bodacious Boss, the National Best in Show Winner making waves throughout the bully world. Some were quick to point out that this isn’t the first time one of the other bully breeds has won—in 2010, a Shortybull walked away with the Best in Show title. These supporters see Boss’s win as growth of the registry and the growth of the Bully community in general. On the other hand, social media is ablaze right now with disbelief and disgust that anything other than an American Bully would take the crown. Some are using the win as proof that the registry, that ALL of the “established” registries, have given up objectivity and are being swayed by what’s popular at the moment or worse being influenced by personal relationships and loyalties. We have even seen the promotion of yet another new registry promising to be the new best choice.

Freezing weather is bearing down on the United States. The Upper Midwest has already seen inches of snowfall and the arctic air is quickly approaching the southern states. There has been a lot of talk about the Polar Vortex ever since last year's monster winter (anyone remember that little ice storm that paralyzed Atlanta?), but it is actually a permanent "pocket" of freezing air that hovers around the Arctic Circle. It is not a storm, it is not the Vortex itself racing across the country. Major weather events, like the record breaking storm churning off the coast of Alaska right now, can disrupt the flow of the Vortex causing its freezing air to "spill" out across the atmosphere.

A story recently popped up in our social media feed about a woman who decided that her Paleo Diet was getting a bit too costly. After reviewing the nutritional information on her dog's "high end kibble" she decided that at eighty five cents a serving kibble would satisfy her health and budget needs.

How many Bully programs out there are set up as state-registered businesses? It’s understandable that there may be some hesitation when it comes to actually setting up a business: finding the start-up cash, filing paperwork and taxes. There doesn't seem to be much financial or legal information out there on structuring a successful kennel.

The October 2014 issue of Entrepreneur magazine featured an article titled “5 Things You Must do To Successfully Launch a Business.” As I read I couldn’t help but make the connection to the business of breeding, and how arming the Bully community with more business knowledge will benefit us all. Here I apply four of the ideas from that article to creating a profitable, impressive breeding program.

Colder weather is upon us, but that doesn't mean bugs and parasites will be hibernating for the winter. If you visit the vet regularly, you are probably familiar with just how expensive parasite prevention can be. Heartworm medication and flea/tick protection can often cost more than the exam. It is easy to think "I'll get it next time," or "I don't have to worry about that stuff around my house." Unfortunately, all of these excuses are putting your dog, and possibly your family, in danger.
