Dog fighting slang

Ever wonder what you should be on the lookout for to determine if someone is talking about fighting dogs? I'll try to provide an answer so that you can be alert and know what to look for.

Dog fighters use many code words to disguise their activities. Because it is, in many places, highly illegal and is usually viewed as highly immoral, dog fighters try to keep their hobby a well kept secret. However, it is probably more widespread than you think. It is estimated that up to 140,000 people in the United States are involved in illegal dog fighting; 100,000 in street level, 40,000 in professional level. Fighting dogs ranges from street level backyard brawls all the way up to professionally organized events.

Dog Fighting Slang

Campaign: the career of a fighting dog
Champion: a dog who has won at least three fights
Convention: a very large dog fighting event, sometimes with activities, music, and food
Dogman: a professional trainer or handler
Grand champion: a dog which has at least five wins and is undefeated
Gameness: tenacity and willingness to fight (is also used sometimes outside of fighting)
Prospect: a young dog which is aggressive and is thought of as being a good candidate for a fighting dog
Scratch lines: lines in a dogfighting ring behind which the dogs start in the match
The keep: the training which a dog undergoes leading up to a fight, usually lasting about six weeks
The show: the actual dog fight itself
Breeding stand: a barrel or stand that a female dog is tied to while a muzzled male dog mates with her

EDIT: before assuming someone is a dogfighter, please thoroughly investigate all aspects of the person and their program. Just because a lot of these terms are used for the illegal sport does NOT mean that the terms have died along with it. Now-a-days many of these words have different definitions... a lot of them have been covered in this thread, so please read the original post (this one) and thoroughly read the rest of the responses to this thread to see how much these definitions have actually changed over the last few decades. - Indigo Bully Connection

I see some words we use in sanctioned events too like "champion" and "grand champion" and "the show". So... I assume those that are involved in the illegal things tend to figure us sanctioned event people out too by the way we talk about our shows and events too... right? I mean they should...I just don't want to step into anything unknowingly. Please forgive my stupid sounding request for clarification, but it is important to get across to those who want to participate in sanctioned events but don't know how to talk about it safely.

Err yeah to be honest I'm sure a few of these have multiple usages, it's all based on the context which they are used in I guess.

Wow, blown away to see this on here, because this is just HSUS generated crap. I will always strive to be the best dogman I can be, I will always condition my dogs and call it a keep (using a 8 week period, just the same), I will always carry a break stick, I will own several conformation ch. before I die and hopefully a gr ch., I will always campaign my dogs (going to shows or can I use the word show), and Gameness must never be forgotten purpose of these dogs, period, breeding for a different form of gameness than matchdog quality but it is the only reason to bred or even own one of these dogs is the gameness factor. Tainted minds we have here after all, I bet you go to dog parks don't you?????????

Wow in my industry we use a lot of those words, so if someone heard me talking I might be in trouble, a campaign would be an ad campaign, we hold conventions all the time, we have affiliate sales contests with champions and grand champions. Prospect could be a new marketer, and people might speak about their gameness, I have heard all these words in the office. So if anyone ever hears me say anything, don't lock me up lol.

I think it's dangerous to say "this group" of people use "these words".

Now I am not saying that those words can't be used by said group, but I wouldn't say only that group uses those words.

I use seven of those words on a weekly bases and you all know I don't dog fight Im to outspoken and I take issue to hog hunting when they aren't using armor much less dog fighting. I show my dogs at sancitioned events and am way to camera happy to be posting pics if I had something to hide. Most of those words are used by proud APBT owners and fanicers at sancitioned shows.

It is what it is. its up to us as dog owners to deal with. I choose to take the more responsible aproach to all of it. It really doesnt matter to anyone until they're on your proprty to remove your dogs.

Here's some more words you might not want to use. Adopting-Human term. Not for dogs , not even rescue. That would be placement. Guardian- if you're a guardian then your not an owner. With guardianship, we no longer have ownership rights. The government, spearheaded by HSUS and Peta, are stripping us of our rights everyday. When we use these terms, we just help them with their cause and not ours.
