Welcome to Florida, Derrick! If you are close by come check out our pit bull club!!
Mid Florida APBTA March 2008 Fun Show
Saturday, March 15th
Veteran’s Memorial Park, 3602 N. Hwy. 301, Tampa, FL

This month’s judge will be Mike Morgan of Old Family Reds Kennel, located in Altamonte Springs, Florida. Mike is a breeder and show exhibitor for over 23 years of the purest Hemphill/Wilder blood around. His expertise doesn’t stop with only the ‘rednose strain.’ He understands conformation and will recognize the well-conditioned APBT, so everyone should have a great time! Although Mid Florida is a sanctioned club of the American Dog Breeders Association (ADBA), and we do judge our conformation according to the ADBA standard, your APBT does not have to be registered (UKC, ADBA or etc) to participate. And, yes, the spayed/neutered pits are invited! Our monthly fun show events are open to all pit bulls, registered or not, and we encourage everyone to attend.

Mid Florida had over 60 entries last month so come on out and help make this one of our largest fun shows once again! Entry fees are very reasonable at $3.00 for a member or $5.00 for a non-member. If you have never been out to one of our fun shows before now is the time! Come check us out. Ribbons awarded for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places. Trophies for Best Puppy, Best of Opposite, Best of Show, Heavyweight Division and Most Weight Pulled over on the weight pull track.

Last month we did not have enough interest to conduct a weight pull. The weight pull cart will absolutely be out and running in March, so please bring those seasoned weight pull dogs. Newcomers to weight pull are encouraged as well. Those with experience are there to offer help and encouragement to those just learning or wanting to give it a try for the first time!

Not everyone is interested in the conformation show ring or the weight pull track but still want to do something positive with their pit bull. There are so many other activities to choose from to present our dogs in a responsible way. Carla Thomas of Ultimate K-9 Companions has been an active member of Mid Florida American Pit Bull Terrier Association for several years. She has agreed to lend her expertise by offering (on a monthly basis) obedience training, specific behavior training, or Canine Good Citizen training for a very reasonable donation to Mid Florida. The desire of our participants will determine which activity will be conducted.
Carla and some of her K-9 companions will be conducting a brief demonstration for those interested. Class size will be limited (8-10 dogs) so Carla can offer individualized attention as needed. Therefore, pre-registration, $5.00 per class, will be required to participate. For use in these classes only training collars (choke, prong, halti) will be permitted.


Registration 11:30 am to 12:30 pm
Lunch (Hot from the grill) 12:30 - $5.00 per plate

If you care about the American Pit Bull Terrier come on out and join Mid Florida APBTA. Two of our more ‘important missions are to host an American Dog Breeders Association sanctioned point show annually which draws participants from all over the southeastern United States, and to fight against Breed Specific Legislation which affects many other breeds other than the American Pit Bull Terrier. Membership dues are paid annually; $25 for a family and $20 for a single membership.
Membership dues are not refundable. A paid membership in the Mid Florida APBTA provides you with:
*event registration discounts
*free annual subscription to the Bullsheet
(published quarterly)
*one free advertisement in the Bullsheet newsletter (and discounts thereafter)
*one free t-shirt with initial membership
*membership card
*voting privileges for all association
By joining our association and supporting our monthly fun shows you too can actively promote this wonderful breed for all it has been……and all we know it to still be today.

From the past, for today, into the future.


Secure buckle collars and 4ft leads are required.

All dogs must be crated unless participating in an event or being “walked-out.”

No facing off of dogs.

No drugs or alcohol will be tolerated by
members or participants.

No human aggressive dogs, or dog aggressive humans, will be allowed to participate in events.

This is a family event, good sportsmanship and respectable conduct is expected.

Please be careful to keep adequate distance between you and the next dog. Remember, your APBT may not be dog aggressive, but the one next to you could be.

As with any breed of dog, do not attempt to pet any dog without first getting permission from the owner.

No loitering with your dog please. If you are a familiar face with a familiar dog, your participation is expected. First time observers are welcomed.

Anyone not willing to abide by these rules will be asked to leave the premises.

Mid Florida APBTA does not condone any illegal activity, but will never deny the history and heritage of our breed.
