The American Bully has been named as "Nanny Dogs" due to thier very calm/level temperment, which is why they do so well with children. These very muscular, chizzled/distinctive looking dogs can come off as "aggressive looking" to some, although that couldnt be further from the truth when speaking in terms of temperment.

American Bullies do not hold aggressive traits to that of the American Pit Bull Terrier. American Bullies have notablly been known to do well as indoor dogs, that do require daily exercise due to thier high drive nature. The American Bully does contain lots of energy, so multiple daily walks, runs, or some sort of muscle building/agility based activities like spring poles, slatmills, and tug poles are required to keep them from depressive slumps that can lead to chewing items due to boredom. Stronger than average toys need to be purchased for this breed, along with monitored due to destruction of the toys. Bones that are marrow filled, and different kinds of antlers/bones like knuckles, can be good ways to allow your bullies to chew away thier stress. 

The American Bully enjoys fast paced outdoor activities, and can be ideal hunting partners if trained properly as well. American Bullies have become a lovable breed on the internet when it comes to wearing funny/funky clothing, having cheese thrown on thier faces, gums played with/playfully tugged on/playfully chewed on by thier owners, cheerios/snacked stacked on thier noses and heads as a means of showing this breed is willing to take one for the team when it comes to family jokes, pranks, and play time when compared to smaller, more aggressive breeds.

American Bullies are highly intelligent dogs that enjoy mental games/stimulation/training. This breed has a history of being trained for use as law enforcement k-9 units. Training the American Bully at an early age is more ideal than waiting until they become older, although they are willing to learn at all stages in thier lives. These dogs do not contain food aggression when fed on a regular and consistent basis, although this may vary case by case depending on how the bully was raised/socialized.
