Welcome to Lola the Pitty, a dog blog which documents tips about dog ownership and training, shares dog treat recipes, and most importantly – raises positive awareness and fights the negative stereotypes towards often misjudged breeds.

I’m Sarah, a Marketing Director by day, dog lover and pit bull advocate by night. I’m a Colorado native who is delighted to be back in my home state; I grew up with a passion and love for all animals and a huge weakness for dogs and horses. The first dogs in my life were two shelties named Boomer and Buster.

Life has since been on fast forward and has involved volunteering at a local animal rescue, fostering five amazing dogs, to ordinary life where I reside in northern Colorado…Greeley to be exact, with my two fur-kids, Lola and Rio.

The inspiration for Lola the Pitty began in September of 2013 when I began sharing our adventures with Lola on her Facebook page . I then took the leap of expanding our adventures into a blog, which showcases our positive journey that we’d love to have you with us on!

(Looking to read about the dogs behind the blog?)

Our mission is to change the perception of bully breeds by growing as breed ambassadors and share content valuable to our readers. We hope that with our stories and education, we can inspire others to adopt and rescue dogs like Lola, Rio and the millions of other dogs that simply want a chance at life.

I am also proud to announce that as of February 2014, I’m a contributor to Victoria Stilwell’s Blog – take a peek at my profile on the Positively Expert Blog.

    Hi Sarah,

    I stumbled across LolaThePitty.com and thought that you’d be a great fit for our upcoming Pet Paw-Looza Event.

    Pet Paw-Looza is a week long campaign that encourages owners to share or claim thousands of pet samples with friends on Facebook. Not only is this a huge event (our last cross-promotional campaign had over 75 000 users), but it’s also a fantastic promotional opportunity for your blog.

    As an official blogger, you would receive:
    – monetary compensation
    – products from participating brands
    – your own flash giveaway with an awesome prize to share with your fans

    The event is set for May 2015, and I’d love to tell you more. Let me know if you’re interested and I can send you the next steps!

    All the best,
    Rochelle

    I am so shocked at the ignorance when I walk my leash- trained dog. People have verbally assaulted us, grabbed hoses etc. and all without provocation! She is just a mix and a big brown cupcake.

    I’m so glad to find there other fur patents like me. The seem few and far between. My dog is named Dexi Doodle and it a privilege for me to have her in my life.

      Same here! My pit mix Lotus gets undeserved scorn at times. At the end of the day, a dog is a DOG! All dogs can be well-mannered and good-natured, regardless of breed; whether a chihuahua, lab, poodle, yorkie, pit, or mutt, all dogs reflect their upbringing or training. A good human understands the strengths and weaknesses of their dog as an individual, because no dog is the same. A well-adjusted dog has a human who takes their individuality into account. 🙂

    Came across your website from searching “Clipping my dog’s nails” on Pinterest, and a link to your page came up! This is great, and it is nice to see a webpage that I can come to for advice on specific things. And it is great that I can learn a lot from another pitbull owner!

    Thanks for sharing!

    Hi Sarah,
    I came across your page on pinterest when looking for some dog treat recipes. I am not very talented when it comes to the kitchen, but I am trying desperately to raise money so that I can get a service dog. I use the dog treats to attract others to my table. I came across your recipe and tried the buckwheat mint ones and they were great! They were so easy, they looked great, and my parent’s dog seemed to love them. Thank you so much for sharing these recipes!
