Hey CX, I have also baited for dogs in the Brit Army and the advice you have given is spot on. Also the pulling apart of the front legs can be used on
some breeds of dogs but is FA use when they are clamped around one of your arms.
Years ago I was baiting for a Handler and his doberman 'Carlos' and he was a BIG bugger. I put the suit on, pegged it through the woods and
eventually he found me. He took my arm and clamped on it with a grip I had never experienced before or since. Anyway he lost it and wouldn't let go
and I felt his teeth coming through and he was not listening to his handler.
His handler, quick as you like, grabbed the loose skin on top of his head and severely pull it back, so you could see a lot of the whites of the dogs
He let go pretty damn quick.
Anyway, years later, I was on the beach with my Jack Russel and my Heinz 57, when the Jack Russel got into a 'Scrappy Doo' with an American
The Staffy had my dog pinned by his neck. All teeth had punctured my dog's
neck. Blood and sand and my dog making a sound like a dying rabbit.
The owner was your typical Staffordshire owner. All mouth no trouser. I covered the 50m or so to my dog like a 1000 gazelles, grabbed the Pit by the
loose skin on its head and he let go of my dog quick, I punched the thing a few times, scooped up me dog and dunked him in the sea so I could see how
bad the wounds were.
Meanwhile, my other the dog, the big heinz 57 was having a go at the owner of the Staffy. She listens well and came by when called.
So I'm stood there, up to me bollox in the north sea, covered in blood, seriously injured dog, blood all over the beach and kids screaming n
Owner of said badly trained pit (there's a surprise) is making like a swastika. What a cake and arse party.
I have used that technique in two other dog fights since (same type dog, they love 'em here in Holland but can't be arsed training 'em) and it's
worked both times, but I took a bad bite on the one before last.
All three times I was screaming like a man possessed and I think that helped. But you've got to be quick and brutal.
Nice thread mate. Good drills. I think presence of mind helps in these situations. Don't detach, keep calm and fight like an animal.
Got tonnes of funny/sad/scary/(shaggy) dog stories.
