In recent times, XL Bullies have become the subject of many discussions and headlines, with government considerations on banning the breed. This comes as a reaction to growing concerns about the aggressive tendencies of some individuals within this breed. However, at the heart of this discourse lies a fundamental truth: the need for proper training and understanding of this dog breed, rather than outright bans.

Understanding XL Bullies

XL Bullies are known for their strength and size, but like any breed, their temperament can be largely influenced by their upbringing, training, and environment. While some may argue for a complete ban, we firmly believe that proactive measures in training and understanding are the real solutions.


Why Banning Isn’t the Answer

Banning XL Bullies isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution. Instead, implementing a comprehensive dog training programme from as early as 12 weeks old is crucial. This should include obedience training, ensuring that a dog’s reactions and behaviour are moulded positively right from the start.

Here at One to One Dog Training School, we offer all XL Bully owners an intensive training programme, which focuses not only on obedience but also on specific issues like dog aggression or support for PTSD. Every programme begins with a training assessment, tailored to your dog’s unique needs. This assessment can be carried out at your residence anywhere in the UK, from £150 ( depending on your location).

Dog trainer Rob Metcalfe, from One to One Training School is receiving frantic calls every day from terrified owners.

Rob said: I recently had a case where an owner was too frightened to be on her own in the house with her dog unless it was locked in the kitchen.

I said I needed to return with specialist equipment but I haven’t heard from her since. It’s worrying. That dog could get out and bite someone. The XL Bully grows to 70kg in next to no time.

Many are purchased as a fashion accessory and some owners think they can watch a YouTube video and learn how to handle them. It is essential for these dogs to have professional training.”
