    yeah I agree. A game test like the one above is a sure way to ruin your dog. I don't know anyone that would do that.

    for people who breed vs compete i think its a different process
    can u know if a dog is game enough during schooling?
    imo i dont think you can...

    I wouldn't bet on anything unless I saw 40-45 minutes. That to me would be game enough. That would be his final test before the big leagues.

    they dont make em coke heads dude its that simple. i dont need to beleive what anyone says, because i have seen the dogs being trained for such tasks, and i will tell you they are not addicts, its a simple work and praise situation.

    wardog , agreed on the 40 to 45. why ruin the future just to test to hard. end up with more ruined dogs than good ones going to hard to early. jmo.

    It's either in him or it's not but you need to know how to tap into it the right way. it is very easy to ruin him. Some are just not ready as soon as others. I had one that was cold until she was 5 1/2 years old. She was game enough.

    no need to match em, shouldnt be about the money it should be about the dogs.
    test em, if theyre game enough breed em.

    if im wrong forgive me & correct me, but it just seems that matching once theyve proven themselves seems to be more about the money aspect.

    like i said i can give 2 shits about the money, just producing quality bulldogs!

    Hell yeah you have to match them. That is only way to know how good of a dog you really have. Competition is the true litmus test!

    the test of a dog is not time but pressure...some matches dont even last thirty minutes..go uphill give away two to three pounds into a good rough rolldog put him under presessure for at least fifteen minutes and see how he scratch's . depends on the dog some just scratch harder and faster while others just scratch...at the end of the day its scratching that counts...also everyone has there own way of gametest. i know some dogmen that after a good schooling when it comes to the gametest they will two or threedog a dog one after the other no resting in between ..and some will try find the dogs bottom and roll him until he quits..and this could take up to four or more dogs..i know of one dogman who in the late 70's was testing his dog (a staffordshire bull terrier ) and he stopped four dogs all bigger one after the other and they were not short rolls but twenty to fourty mins. he went on to become a ch.. . i dont disagree with anything on this page i aggree with most its just we all have our own way of doing things..cheers!

    not saying to never match em, my bad it came out wrong. your right match and GR CH him out.
    what i meant was that it should never be about the money, its about the dogs.
    but once you get your dog up to its ch title, throw in the towel and put him up for stud! no need to match em after that! let em spend the rest of his days humpin!

    once you have established a line and it has been succesfull for 10 plus years then i think you can get away with game testing some of you dogs instead of matching a lot of the top breeders did this and were very successful

    game testing is a thing where the dogman has to see wat he has an wat he thinks hes been breeding for an the most important thing is too see if the dog even has wat it takes to compete in the fast lane. for example if u roll your dog for 40 min. ok u say well i`ve seen wat i wanted out of him an you match him an he stops in 20? or he wins in 15 !!! shit some matches dont go 40 but everytime you roll a dog u take sumthin from them but wat u hope is that they also learn something from it. my point is that when your game testing know wtf your doing:dogstare:

    It's about both time and pressure. There is only 2 reasons a dog quits. It's either he can't take the pain or he is tired. Most will quit between 30-40 minutes. Also anyone that would put more then 1 dog on theirs doesn't know what their doing cause they would of picked a better dog in the first place.

    i think if the dog is still up to going at it why not let them have their fun?

    no need to, why risk messin up the title? id rather have 5 wins & no losses
    than 5 wins 1 loss!

    BEHAVIN Top Dog

    and thats all it is LWG, a title........
    in reality the title means fark all, its how they achieved that title is what its about. hell, go show the dog at a few conformation shows and it can get a title, he didn't have to do much to get it, and he may have been pretty to look at, but he didn't bring a tear to ya eye:thinking:.well are ya???
    i wasn't going to leave any comments in this thread, for good reason, but.........
