He added that dogs can be unpredictable, especially in packs and when they are presented with triggers, which include limited resources like food.
"I am a huge proponent of pits and pit mixes, but I am also a proponent of keeping your children safe, and children should never be left unmonitored with dogs," Proietto said. "It doesn't matter if it a pack of Cavalier King Charles spaniels, German shepherds, Frenchies or pits."
Dr. Ilana Reisner, a veterinarian and dog behaviorist, weighed in on the video via social media:
"While the dogs' self-control is impressive, the message being conveyed is not," she wrote, "There are a few well known triggers of aggression between dogs, among them crowding and the presence of food. Putting two of these potential triggers together is simply unsafe. Yes, apparently these dogs are not competitive or aroused over their kibble, but feeding them in a head-to-head (to head) arrangement like this isn't safe, nor is it relaxing for the dogs."
