Game line cross weight pull line

    Does it make sense to cross Game-bred dogs to weight pull dogs that also have game dogs behind them, and that are good at what they do? Let's assume that good weight pull (and maybe other performance) dogs bring athleticism and drive to the table. They have proven themselves to have desirable characteristics. They might even have some desirable characteristics at a higher level than a lot of Game-bred dogs.

    Your thoughts?

    I like the sound of it FD.Performance is still proven in the pit.I believe what ever you put into a family will sooner or later come back out.I think most would rather go proven to proven.JMO

    Yes although the pit performance might be back a bit in the ped. This is theoretical. But weight pull dogs are around my area.

    I'm fairly new to weight pull but from what I see many folks do well pulling with dogs down from game dogs. I don't know a lot about their dogs but I don't think proven dogs are too far removed from some of them. There are also crosses everywhere who knows what they claim they are but it's been done and many are exceling with their dogs. I have more respect for the folks that try to keep the breed true to form and still select for better pulling dogs along with everything else.

    I know drive and gameness are two different things but i also feel they kind of go hand in hand... Even if i was breeding strictly for pulling i would still want to make sure my dogs were true to the standard of the breed..

    Well it depends for what you want these dogs. If you want gamedogs, use gamedogs. If you want weight pull dogs, use weight pull dogs.
