ALL Breeds Need Educational Seminars...
This is what breed clubs should be doing.
Instead, they tend to concentrate just on running shows so a few people can win points.
After 45 years in dogs, its discouraging to see how little involvement the kennel clubs and breed clubs take on public education.
As to so called "bullies", since they are a mix breed and not bred with physical soundness as a priority, it would be hard to find a reputable person who really knows there stuff to hold such a seminar.
I would suggest Pat Hastings, in general, as she has always been very helpful in helping me understand authentic American pit bulls. Even though her main focus is the show ring, she has enough experience to be able to help even those who breed performance dogs. The only warning I would give is that because she is not a pit bull person, she rather underestimates how much sheer determination plays in how well a dog does in performance events.
But for those wanting a VERY comprehensive look at structure she gives a fantastic workshop.
