oh pit nutter, you have so much to learn about the world.
you don't realize that the same problems with the ATTS exist with the CGC. the test is only good as the tester and there is tester and testee bias. and as sharon pointed out, a lot people can successfully get their dogs through the 5-10 minute exercise.
here's a perfect example. this is simba the mastiff going through the CGC. the tester is an APBT owner. he uses his own dog, MONTAUK, for the test number 8, reaction to another dog.
the really critical part of this test is from roughly 3:00 - 4:00. at 3 minutes, notice the tester giving commands in what sounds like french and look to the far right of the screen at his dog.
so, what do we know about this tester?
ROBERT BOUDREAU has a dog training business. he is or was the president of the LONE STAR STATE APBT CLUB. he testified against dangerous dog HB1982 in 2009, a texas bill that would increase penalties against people when their dogs bite. the details of HB1982 can be found here. he is a tester for the CGC and the ATTS and is an agitator/tester for the Fila assoc. he clearly has a vested interest in seeing grippers and other dangerous dogs passing these tests.
and here's what we know about the pit bull that's "supposed to be trained".
montauk has more medals than stubby!
