- NO head-to-head greetings or "forced" greetings of dogs.

- ALWAYS ask if it is ok before approaching or giving a treat to an unknown dog.

We are coming together to keep a POSITIVE view of the bully breeds. Any dog or person who is going against that idea will be asked to leave immediately. Representatives from CT Pit Bull Project reserve the right to refuse entry.

What is National Pit Bull Awareness Day?

Founded by Cookeville, TN resident Jodi Preis of Bless the Bully’s, this national event is held across the country annually on the third Saturday in October each year. The events are put on by 100% volunteer driven organizations or individual pit bull advocates in support of the noble, and often misunderstood, bully breeds. This family and dog friendly event is a fun-filled day that celebrates the bully breed, promotes responsible pit bull ownership, and helps educate those unfamiliar with the breed's true characteristics. We strive to help dispel the media hype and myths that are prevalent in today's society in addition to providing educational resources for bully owners in need and advocate against Breed Specific Legislation (BSL).
