been a while since I've been here... Okay.. the hunt is the closest your going to get legally in this country.. Put your dog in a situation of survival .. Most people who hunt hogs with game bred APBTs drive in and walk them on a lead until hounds find pigs.. I do not... I run in and run out.. ... No bout with coyotes last 2hrs ..
well get out there and try it... NO a good bulldog will melt right through them yotes.. HOWEVER.. let your dog out at the wrong time and you'll see what I mean when you have to save your dog. .. my dogs also have to handle moose that wander on to the acreage or try to get bully on our runs.. My newest dog just went through that this summer she got into a bull moose and stumbled away after the bull moose dropped in exhaustion covered in bruises and road rash... the last thing you do is get in that; I wan't there my neighbor told me about it.. So she was fighting for her life and out of prey drive and out of game at some point because bull moose kill dogs all the time.
Is this game testing? Not by way of any dogman... Have to remind yourselves that game was derived first from huntin and handling feral and big game. This is just being honest to your dog as all bulldogs are catchdogs. Just as all these dogs are bulldogs, bandogs, or terriers.. nothing more nothing less unless proven otherwise..
TRUE game is only testing in a controlled experimetal environment as breeding is scientific and that is the scientific way of purifying the game gene within a breed of dog.
What I do is run well bred game dogs as dogs that they are, dogs of prey.. Can every bulldog(apbt
) do this? NO.. just like not all them go the distance in the .
Unless your willing to endevor into illegal practices hunting big game and predator control is as close to testing what game your dogs do possess. Yes every ped and most all dogs have a cur or more in there somewhere.. Curs have produced game dogs and dogs that went cold have done the same.
As far as name dropping?; Im speaking on the public knowledge those men disclosed into books for EVERYONE to understand and learn. For instance Stratton mentions before anyone gets involved in bulldogs they study and understand wolves. "The Truth About the American Pit Bull Terrier".. So when people start arguing facts presented by the authorities on the breed and those who founded it and rubbed shoulders with those who founded it, I tend to throw some scarcasm in there because I wrongly assume that every one who thinks they know bulldogs has read the library of Stratton and the other books by other dogmen: Stevens, Rocca, Faron, Colby etc.. Combining with experience... BUT thats not the case..
Those who have ears should hear; those who have eyes should see.....
