“I think the film is fantastic. I think it really delves in deep into the whole issue and really explains it and explains it from all sides. That’s what I liked about it. Because it’s not just saying that every single pit bull is fantastic and none of these dogs are dangerous. It’s exploring it from every single point of view.”

~ Victoria Stilwell, Trainer and Host of Animal Planets It’s Me or the Dog

“Beyond the Myth takes a powerfully candid look at the media and public bias that surrounds “pit bull-type” dogs, as well as the laws that discriminate against them and their owners. The film allows the audience to experience the fear and frustration of families affected by breed bans, and puts the panic-driven hype into perspective with “real” statistics and first-person accounts. Beyond the Myth is a “must see” documentary for any and all dog lovers.”

~ Jodi Preis, Founder of Bless the Bullys and National Pit Bull Awareness Day

“Beyond the Myth is a compelling documentary that showcases the devastating impact of breed bans and breed discrimination on real families. This is an important film for both Pit Bull advocates and those who aren’t particularly fond of the bull and terrier breeds. It will open your eyes and touch your heart.”

~ Dawn Capp, Author & Founder of CHAKO Pit Bull Advocacy and Rescue

“This film is a game changer and has raised the level of awareness of BSL to a whole new high. It is a must see for anyone interested in the welfare of all animals and especially the pit-bull type dog.”

“This powerful and revealing film takes a very unbiased look at the difficult issues of breed discrimination legislation, media bias and agenda setting and the affect these topics have on families at a very personal level. By detailing first hand accounts from the people who have suffered the frustration, hurt and ongoing injustice of breed discrimination legislation, Beyond the Myth refuses to let the viewers ignore the issues or sit complacent.”

~ Laura Petrolina, VP of The StubbyDog Project

“Beyond the Myth is the first hard-hitting, emotionally charged documentary to expose the truth about Pit Bull-type dogs: dogs as maligned as they are misunderstood. The film challenges the public’s perception of these dogs—as well as other breeds burdened with false reputations for aggression—by revealing the continuous bias imposed by the media and, by extension, many lawmakers. This film shows these dogs for what they are: loving, loyal and playful companions that deserve fairness, respect and protection. It is a film that anyone who lives with a dog should consider seeing.”

~ Kara Holmquist, Director of Advocacy, Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals

“This film should be viewed by everyone at least once. It’s a reminder that freedom can be taken away and so can a loved one. It’s our duty to defend the voiceless until we no longer need to. This is one of the best documentaries I’ve ever seen.”

~ Deirdre Franklin, Founder and President of Pinups for Pitbulls
