"Welcome to Tom Garner Kennels, your #1 source for the highest quality pit bulls available on the planet today. We have produced more noteworthy dogs and satisfied customers in the past 45 years than any other Pit Bull breeding kennel on the planet. The APBT breed standard stipulates that our dogs must be completely people friendly, intelligent, stable, athletically superior and uncompromisingly courageous. We will not compromise on any of these criteria. We breed to a standard, not for a particular purpose. We believe that faithfully breeding to a well-reasoned set of ideals best serves both man and dog."

Take a tour of our yard both past and present and see why we are producing the best bulldogs in the world today.

Garner's Chinaman was the foundation and prototype for my Pit Bull breeding program. Not only was he conformationally perfect (he is the breed standard for the Sporting Dog Registry), he was tested at Stanford University and found to have oxygen assimilation capabilities (as assessed via VO2 max) equivalent to top Greyhounds.

Testing also revealed that Chinaman possessed an unusually high percentage of fast-twitch muscle and advantageous skeletal and muscle-attachment geometry. These genetically based, scientifically documented advantages, coupled with clearly demonstrated superiority as an athletic performer made Chinaman the ultimate choice for taking Pit Bull evolution to the next level.

The rest is history. In 2 short years (from age 7 to 9) he made a profound mark on our breed as a producer and as a producer of producers. His double-bred son Frisco is the leading producer of all-time.
