    Conditioning a dog for the show ring is NOT work...anymore than conditioning a Sport dog for a sport is NOT work.

    Seriously, if you guys with REAL APBTs have these superb canine athletes, why don't you do something constructive with them besides the ADBA ring? I would think one of these exceptional APBTs would absolutely excel at French ring or a multitude of other sports!

    So by Celtic's definition of WORK, that means that ALL SPORT dogs that take EFFORT to become accomplished in their venue are WORKING dogs.

    Also, I'm not saying that it isn't hard work to condition an ADBA dog cause I imagine it is, I am saying that it is just as hard to condition ANY dog no matter the breed to do a sport. The APBT fanciers don't want to admit that conditioning ANY breed is work. That has been my main point all the way through. I am also saying that there are other breeds that have just as much endurance as the APBT. Take the sled dog for example, slap a sled dog on a mill and I'd bet my life that it'd run till it dropped if someone let it, that's what they are conditioned to do.

    (I still don't think that conditioning an ADBA dog is WORK.) You guys scoff and make fun of other people's dogs, other breeds etc. Every dog is different and not all dogs are going to excel at the same thing obviously. My GSD isn't going to excel in the pit, he wasn't bred for that, I can guarantee that he will stop an intruder and give his life for it, cause that's what he was bred for. He has heart and DRIVE and with those 2 things, a good solid nerved dog can do ANYTHING irregardless of breed!!!

    Colby- when and where?? I'd love to take Judge(GSD) hunting. We talking hog hunting or what? He might not be the greatest out there but he'd try his heart out and for me that is what counts!

    The ones I know must be slackers. They usually do around 7.

    If the APBT's build was perfect for long distance running, then working Huskies would resemble APBTs with thicker coats. But they don't. And the only reason that they don't kick as much butt on the weight pull track as they could is because they are infamously independent and do not like to work if it is not their own idea. Hard to get a dog that thinks that way to go all out.

    Not many APBT folks like man-biting sports so you won't see many of em at French Ring. lol

    The only reason APBTs wouldn't make good sled dogs is because they'd rather kill the other dogs on the sled team. :rolleyes:

    "Huskies" (Alaskan, Siberian...whatever) were NEVER bred for competitive weight pulling. They were bred to haul light to moderate loads over long distances. Competitive weight pulling started out as side-shows at their races and evolved into the specialty event we have today.

    Some strains of APBT probably ARE the first dogs BRED for competitive weight-pulling....and thus do very well at the cut-throat competition it is today.

    I agree APBTs are very versatile....and I love to see them out there excelling in all kinds of sport/work/games....

    First of all they said they work them 4 hours in the evening pay attention and dig your head out of your ass, and if Nevada is the same as New Mexico where I just was last week, that would only be an hour behind us. So you better do the math again.

    Point proven.

    Jibberish. Nothing constructive to add by half ass smart remarks. And yes they are half ass.

    Basically useless. And that has been you in the last 2 threads. Useless.

    But hey as long as you get a giggle out of it. I guess it is ok.

    From my understanding, Malamutes are used more often than Huskies for that reason.

    Well, I'm going to bed. It has been an interesting thread.
