A Break-Stick is an efficient tool that can be used to "break" the bite of a tenacious, determined Pit Bull.
A Pit Bulls natural instinct is to bite and hold. Pit Bulls do not have any special locking jaw, but what they do have is an enormous amount of determination and tenacity, the true nature of a terrier. "Pit Bull" not an official breed of dog it is a generic term used to describe the American Pit Bull Terrier, American Staffordshire Terrier, Staffordshire Bull Terrier and any mixes there of.
A break stick helps give you leverage to open a determined dogs jaw. Most other dog breeds bite erratically and blindly - snapping, biting and releasing. (for this reason and for your own safety you should not use a break stick on any other breed of dog).
With Pit Bull breeds, the break stick is one of the quickest and safest ways to break up a fight. Straddle your dog, grab the collar with one hand, and insert the break stick in the opening behind the molars and twist. The leverage will cause them to adjust their bite onto the stick allowing you to pull them away and back under control.
Although we hope you will never have to use them, unintentional, accidental dog fights do happen. Even the most well behaved, friendly Pit Bull could find itself in a dog fight. Dog fights can be very scary, but even scarier is not being able to break them up. Responsible
owners must be vigilant to do what they can to prevent any fights before they start but they should also be prepared and capable of breaking up an accidental fight, should one happen, as quickly as possible.
