Pit Bull Guru trainer, Drayton Michaels, is interviewed in Beyond the Myth, a film about dogs commonly referred to as "pit bulls" and those who love and defend these breeds. It explores the contributing factors behind the public's generalized fear of "pit bulls," and examines the conflict existing between advocates and opponents of breed discriminatory laws, as carried out in three cities that ban pit bull-type dogs, which require the animals to be spayed and neutered. Beyond the Myth is an important, must see film for all dog lovers. For more information, visit
