AMERICAN BULLDOGS NATURAL PROTECTORS


– [Narrator] Dogumentary TV, producing the best breed
documentaries on YouTube. (barking) (light upbeat music) – I’m Kraig Guay from
Maximum Power Kennels. We breed working American Bulldogs standard to hybrid standards. So, for me an American
Working Bulldog is athletic, mentally stable, easy to
live with most importantly and they just give it their all. There’s no medium level for a bulldog. It’s first or last and
that’s how we like it. Here at Maximum Power Kennels,
we focus with a French ring for our protection sport and as puppies we focus on a Belgium
ring style of bit work. From there, once they leave the property they’re capable of doing whatever the handler chooses to do
with them at that point. Whether it’s ring or IPO or
hog or pet or protection. Whatever floats your boat, the American Bulldog
should be able to fill it. For me getting into French
ring with American Bulldogs, I was told they couldn’t do it. Which obviously prompts a
lot of people to try it. Then took a lot of time, a lot
of effort, a lot of patience but we put our time in and
we got where we wanted to go but it’s not for every bulldog for sure. There’s a lot that goes into the ring but I think it shows the
mental capabilities of the dog, the stability environmentally of the dog and the will to run at 40 meters over and over and over again to get to that level
that these dogs are at. That’s why I chose to
go with ring versus IPO or personal protection. I wanted that elite handler
control over my animals. (chattering) (horn honking) (whistling) (horn honking) Mentally, an American
Bulldog in French ring or in sport work in general, predictably in the rings because you get, there’s no break in between the obedience and the protection work, it’s all at once. It’s all at the same scenario. A bulldog tends to go red
zone thought very easily and they have a hard time coming back down into the green light world of obedience. So, if you can get your dog
to transition from obedience to bite work back into proper obedience, that shows a lot of character
and a lot of stability on that dog. It’s very difficult. For American Bulldogs,
we have two standards and multiple types in our world. It all pretty much starts,
it starts getting documented with Dr. Johnson that we all know. Very large dogs, short muzzle,
really great for property, close encounters, loving animals that want to
be around their handlers, but can also do some work. Then we have the Scott’s,
the Alan’s of the world, that they tend to be a
little longer muzzled, a little smaller of an animal. Possibly more athletic
just because of their size. Then from there, those
are the two major types and then from there we go into
hybrids and hybrid standards and hybrid bullies and from that mix. The hybrids are a little
bit of both worlds. You get the size of the
Johnson and that nice want to be with you character. Then with the performance or the standard, you get that nice breedability,
can run through fields. You want to go catch hogs, they’re going to be
right there with the wind with the hog. Very athletic animals. I’m in the standard to
hybrid standard world. I like a longer muzzle,
four inches or more, four and a half inches or more. I like to be at a 26
inch wither or bigger. Good size head, like 26
inch head give or take and that puts you right where Tuna, Al The Tuna Capone looks. And that’s what I’d like. A little taller maybe but right there. I think that’s a good working bulldog. He can jump a seven foot wall. He can clear 1.5 on a meter. He can do a four meter long jump, so there’s a lot of athleticism. So, we’re able to do a lot with that dog. Okay, so Al Tuna Capone is
out of Intoxicating Bullies. He’s my older male. He’s been through the ringer with me, we’ve done many, many,
many sports with him. He excelled at French ring. We’ve played in the Iron
Dogs with the bulldogs and the all sportS and
we’ve had some fun with him and he’s been around. His makeup, he’s about 26
of the wither, 26 inch head and about 95 pounds. We’ve never seen him stop. We’ve been training, we’ve sent him, I think it was 27 times full field and the first time he
went, nice full bite, and the last time he went, nice full bite. I’ve never seen that dog quit. ABA, he’s on his way to ABA Champion and we have a qualified
ring one, French ring one. He’s played many times at French ring two. He’s won hardest hitting
when he did his ring one, so he got hardest hitting that trial. He got decoy’s choice. That was all at ring one. Then we went into all sport
and he cleaned up in all sport. Hardest hitting, I think
it’s called an elite canine, is their title there. Then we go into Iron
Doggies and Iron Dog three and he have hardest hitting there and decoy’s choice as well. – [Male] Tell them about your female. – My top female is NorCals
Fuchsia in Fashion. She’s a UKC Champion. She’s a splash dog,
title dog, a therapy dog, French ring one. Amy Peterson had her from a
pup and did her obedience. And also was the breeder
on her through NOrCal. Gave me a really, a lot of
great foundation to work with to get her to a ring one. She’s a little bit smaller,
we call her the cannon ball because she doesn’t have any knees. She’s just full field,
full speed down the field and wrecks everything she
comes in contact with. But she’s a little smaller which was a product of the line breeding. But full grip and again,
I haven’t seen her stop. I’m very happy with the
foundation I have right now for my puppies. Living with a bulldog is pretty sweet. I don’t know if I got lucky or not, but my pack structure’s pretty good. When I first started I
had as couple more males so we were on our toes a little bit more. With experience you learn
what you could be doing and what you should be doing. So, we have a great pack structure here, everybody’s friendly. If I ask my dogs to work,
they’re ready to work. If we want to sit down and watch TV, they’re ready to sit down and watch TV. For me, I don’t know if I got lucky. We’ve had seven dogs
go through the program, more or less here and everyone of them has had that same characteristic. All heart, super lovable, ready
to work, never backs down. You can’t ask for, not
every dog with do that. We’ve had quite a few here, so that something about the breed. Out here, we’re 25 miles from the freeway,
we’re out in the sticks, I’m on six acres and the dogs more or less keep the coyotes out. They bark at the gate, super alarmers. I can’t say they’ve had a
live bite cause they haven’t. No one’s jumped the fence. Anybody’s welcome to try. If they get them, they get
them, that’s what I say. As far as protecting the property, I couldn’t ask for more than
what they’re doing for me, so that’s perfect for me. As far as protecting myself, anyone of these dogs
would throw down for me. I think we’ve proved it. I feel confident in it. I think that goes a lot to
say about the relationship a handler has with their dog is that the dog will actually be for them. In conclusion, for me
bulldogs are my breed, I’ve worked Malinois, I’ve owned Malinois, I’ve owned other breeds. Some other breeds might be easier to train but you’ll never have as much fun as when you’re training a
bulldog and that’s for sure. You can bring them home
and they’re good dogs. You can bring them out in the field and they’re good dogs. For me, that’s my breed.

    We adopted a dog 3 weeks ago from a shelter in Newark, NJ, it was advertised as a pit bull terrier. She was big, 75lbs, white with brindle markings on front and hind quarters and small patches of faint black on her enormous head. I knew she was a Standard American bull dog and yanked her out of there for $200. 3 years old and very gentile, I truly lucked out.

    I love my American Bulldog. Best dog I've ever had. Athletic as crazy and will chase down a soccer ball, before it hits the ground, no matter for far I kick it. He goes all day, unless I stop him. Loyal, friendly and knows I'm the alpha. Can't wait until I get a female to breed with my Hendrix… This dog had completely changed my life! Semper Fi

  33. L AF says:

    I just lost my American Bulldog, Bogey. He was great with kids and loved kittens and puppies. I have no doubt he would have given his life for me. I thought I got lucky when I rescued him, but I hear over and over that this breed is a great family dog and protector.

  34. Thribzy Life says:

    I have a 9 month old American bulldog , 72lbs. She is very protective of our home. She has never ever hurt anyone. But she definitely let's people know she is checking you out before you step foot past the porch area.

  37. gunny says:

    their are the Johnsons and Scotts. they come from the few English whites found in the south. they also suffer from some fear aggression. and some are way hyper i had one and it was long muscle and he ws big head and high and even castrated his conformation ws perfect. i believe he had a bit of pit bull in him . but if my mother talked agrssive to me which she did alot the dog b/c to want to attack me he also since youth hated people unless they were really known from being in my house a lot. when he was hyper he got red eyed and his whit face turned reddish . he wanted to follow my mother upstairs to my apartment and she didnt let him he caught a tantrum and in ten minutes he caught an acute heart attack and he was dead. if i had him alone without my mother treating him in such a bad way , i believe she had to do with his attack. he was so easy to teach he loved me except in my mothers apartment. i also have trained since 81 and started with Antwerp in coney island ny with b. Malinois and a movie is coming out about them and a boy and the dog is going to be in trouble of becoming popular. our b. Malinois society always tried to keep them a secret from the public and if common people buy them they are not going to keep a well breed tough malinois, they will not understand their need to work, forgot my amer staff may have been part pit but his color was wite face and had some wooden looking big blotches just like amer. bulls i saw. his head was a good round side and longer muzlled then others i saw but he was to me kinda tall. boy i miss him terrible. he bit me plenty b/c my mom made him nuts. so if i get my next bull type he is off limmits for long periods with mom. sorry mom but , you need to concentrate what you have now , a adopted pomi and yorkie. i Stlii call my dog a amer buldog. he was sold to me as i was ignorant about pits but to me he was amer. bull in every way. i also just lost my fifteen year old great amer. staff and god, what a lover and a natural protector. i never needed to shutzhund work her. she protected me and never bit, she jumped styraight up vertically and pushed this guy and he flew back about 7 ft. and i am glad she knew tis guy was off and did not bite him b/c she almost killed a game muscle bound pit that this kis from half a block was showing him off and baiting him to bark at my staff and it got loose my dog ripped his face almost off. i felt terrible for the dog and help pay for the damages out of my heart for the dog and i gave it to this kis good

    Joe Painter created great American Bulldogs. Seems people try to write him out of history cuz he was more of an outlaw but he and a couple others laid out the "bullprint" for hybrids They all out crossed in order resurrect the breed. Joe Painter had some amazing dogs. Look them up.

  58. Law of one * says:

    Yeah I'm a big fan of Allen Scott American bulldogs because they look just like the original bulldog back in the 1800s. The problem with dogs that have a short muzzle they over heat easy like the boxer and Johnson American bulldogs.

  59. Usman Alam says:

    wish i could post a pic. that dog at 2:30 is my guys twin! AMer Bulls are the best. I too have been around pure breed dogs my entire life. I have photos of me sooo small my bed was a pillow and curled up next to me was a pure TAN color Doberman Pinscher. Listen, my boy is just the full package. Its like if you were looking for a girlfriend whos many things that are great, such as, funny, attractive, faithful, hardworking etc. Thats what the Amer Bulldog is; its everything!!! Guarding instincts, family friendly, intelligent, strong and playful too. The list goes on, but man I cannot give more praise to this breed but also it will depend if youre a wise owner who knows how to connect with your animal. My boy is my fookin Ace! Love em and he knows it!

  71. Lela Graham says:

    Kraig, great video and information and thanks for posting. Until 10 years ago I had never heard of an American Bulldog, but an abandoned one showed up at our house on December 31, 2008. We named her Athena and she was the best dog I ever had. Our Vet. estimated Athena to be about 10 months old and she weighted 88 LBS at the time. She grew to a beautiful 130 LBS bulldog and was a great family pet. Athena was loved by all. Unfortunately, she got cancer in her left hind leg and we had to euthanize her on Nov. 12, 2018. Broke my heart. For anyone interested in seeing photos of her and a read about her story, internet search Athena – American Bulldog Tribute. I did her tribute to shed light on this great breed and to possibly reach anyone thinking about a rescue American Bulldog. They are GREAT dogs and I'll be getting another one soon. David G.

    Awesome video. I have a Scott his father was from the southern white line. I made a mistake and didn't do socializing as much as I should have when he was a pup. The biggest problem I have is he is a very independent thinker. It takes a lot of effort to get him to take his attention off something and focus on something else. Extremely protective of the children especially my daughter.

  81. War Monger says:

    I had two, o' southern white, American bulldogs. Two brothers and they are/ were amazing. When my wife was pregnant, they followed her around. They would sleep, with their head on her belly, until I came home from work. They could run 15 miles and jump over the bed of my truck. Someone tried to break into my house, he was met by a 115 pound bulldog, who jump through the open window to stop him. Born to protect, work and love. They are true, tender warriors, and adore being in a family.

    My American Bulldog crossed the Rainbow Bridge almost three years ago at the age of 10 & not a day goes by that I don't miss him. He was gentle w/everyone we loved but was all business when he sensed something was wrong. Maybe once my heartache subsides, I'll get another one❤❤❤😥😥😥

  94. Dogs 4 Home protection says:

    I have both types Johnson and Scott; they are extremely smart and obedient. They have pit bull type drive but a little more laid back and can easily be trained to be less animal aggressive. I use them to guard my chickens from stray dogs that like nothing more than to sneak in and kill chickens. The video describes the difference between the two types, the Johnson is more laid back and a better guard dog and have that hilarious Bulldog personality. The Scott type are hot and dog aggressive , they live to catch hogs or whatever you throw in front of them. Great Dogs , I have many breeds and have had many more.

  95. Ashlee Belman says:

    Love our miley mae, she is definitely the dominant one over her and our pitbull. She is the protector of our home expecially after our kids were born and raised in her home. she let's us know if someone is lingering outside the home she also let's us know some just pulled in! 10 years old and still a pup at heart loves our family

  96. Faith M. says:

    Someone I know, has a male 12 week old American bull dog pup in foster at the moment, and he was rescued by a woman whose boyfriend was training him in dog fighting, he has already shown signs of dog aggression, but he’s a beauty. White and gray. I want him so bad, but I know I wouldn’t be able to handle him. But the American bulldog is definitely one of my dream dogs later on in life.

  97. Graham Broughton says:

    My favorite the Scott type

  98. Fuckthera 7575 says:

    I would absolutely love a dog like him , send me one to Northern Ireland

  99. Sean Currey. says:

    Yes I'm in Australia W. A an own an American Bulldog (Scott line ) magnificent dogs working an family pet our boy is exactly wat they say . Will run an hunt all day long he is at 55kg in weight very powerful not type of dog an average person with no experience in walking this breed they are always loving an very powerful an always friendly with the family an some friends but at home alone become very protective of there home an surrounding's all round great inside outside dog dominant but so great with children our boy is great with kids he loves to run an play chasey as long as the kids want his size tends to scare people an is only to i introduction to people with him do they realize how friendly an loving they really are they are very protective of his master but r an all round great breed of dog but must have stimulation an or they will become obese walking an running a minimum of hour a day. They just love to sit with family an be very happy doing this must integrate with other dogs when puppy or in older age u will have problems letting them of there leads in dog park they are alpha male meaning they want to show any breed that they r the boss thus must intergreate as a pup with all other breeds but if u r looking for a good all round dog my suggestion is get an American Bulldog preferable (Scott line) but choice is yor own ;)-
