    Imo that Vietnam keep is the best public written keep in history. Mix that together with maximum stress keep and you really got something.

    I've had this saved since the days of ROM forums.....


    For 25 years I have been a student of conditioning. I will share only my thoughts on conditioning. There are many numbers of keeps developed by different fanciers over the years.

    Each of these methods has both strong points and weak points. As most of the tried and true

    keeps (TRIED IN THE BOX) will produce very similar results.....within a range of realistic expectations. A range of improvement on the order of 5 To up to 10% is about all the average fancier can expect. And, unless a trainer is very observant and given a true understanding of what he is seeing, the trainer may actually do more harm than good when trying to shape a dog!

    NO MATTER WHOSE METHOD YOU MAY USE, IT IS NECESSARY TO UNDERSTAND
    THE WHAT'S, WHY'S, AND HOWS OF GETTING TOP PERFORMANCE FROM YOUR
    ANIMAL.

    Too many times your dog would be better off if you took him directly off the chain
    rather than trying to put him through a keep when you don't know what you're really doing!!! If the dog has been wormed and in perfect health, you can reasonably hope to improve his performance by 8 or l0% and possibly up to 15% if you put super-maximum effort into your
    training program.

    YOU MUST BE DEDICATED TO REACH THIS LEVEL OF SKILL IN TRAINING DOGS FOR THE UPPER LEVELS OF COMPETITION!!!

    To go above and beyond improvement requires years of experience and practically a God-given talent to see more and get more out of your animal than the majority of fanciers in the game today. Just look back through the old journals and reports. Look at the records of S.T.P.,REBEL KENNELS,VIETNAM, FAT BILL, B.WILLIAMS, and the SOSOBOYS.... to name a few of the toughest.

    It is no accident that these men continue to be "THE MEN" to beat; and their consistency is no coincidence! Hey, sure they have goods dogs and in some cases,they have dogs that anyone
    could win with. But these fellows know how to get the very most out of their dogs, even just average dogs.

    THEY SELDOM LOSE ON CONDITIONING. THEIR DOGS SELDOM QUIT.

    So let's get on with the basic keep.

    DAILY FEED MIXTURE

    ONCE PER DAY, FEED 2 BOILED EGG WHITES, 1/2 BOILED EGG YELLOW ,2 CUPs
    TURNIP GREENS OR SPINACH, IT CUP FISH PER 20 LBS. OF BODY WEIGHT (TUNA OR MACKAREL-PACKED IN WATER) (TUNA IS BEST BUT COST MORE). THE REST OF THE FEED WILL BE DOG FEED(FROM 1 TO 3 CUPS DEPENDING ON WEIGHT).

    YOU WIL CONTROL HIS WEIGHT BY THE AMOUNT OF DOG FEED YOU FEED WITH THE SUPPLEMENTS.

    Make sure you walk your dog 4 days a week for 2-3 miles a day, with a five minute sets on a treadmill twice a week for 3 weeks for his pre-keep.

    For historical purposes only. ROM in no way supports dog, fighting or the cruelty of any animal.

    Early A.M. - 2 mile walk. Empty out .Weigh the dog. If you are underweight, feed macaroni equal to the amount you are under plus 4 ounces of additional macaroni and 4 cup greens. If you are overweight feed 4 cup of greens plus enough macaroni so as to put him 4 ounces over the contract weight. This should be 12 to 14 hours before show time. Water 4 to 6 ounces (l fl. oz. water weighs approximately 1.1 ounces (in pounds and ounces)).

    Early P.M. (6 to 8 hours before the show, the dog should be from 2 oz. under to 2 oz. over
    weightwise. If you are under, give the dog water equal to the amount that you are under. If you are over, walk the dog 4 mile for each oz. that you are over. Rest the dog for 4 hours and weigh again. If still over, walk dog 2 mile to and allow him to empty out. Weigh him again, if he is still over weight, insert a child size Glycerin suppository in his rectum, wait 10 minutes, walk for 10 minutes or until he empties out. REST until 30 MINUTES BEFORE WEIGH IN. WEIGH THE DOG AT THIS TIME. If over use another Glycerin suppository, wait 10 minutes, walk 10 minutes. If under weight, give the dog a drink of water equal in weight to the amount that you are under. Mix a beef bouillon cube with this water. No more than 4 oz. of water.

    SHOW TIME!! Your dog should be slightly under the weight (1to 4 oz.) If you have a choice, wash last. If by some odd chance, you are still overweight, walk him and use another Glycerin suppository. If more than 4 oz. under, give the dog chicken broth equal to the amount that you are under. No more than 4 oz. of broth. After weighing if you feel your dog isn't DEAD GAME, give a Tylenol #3,30 M.G. of Caffeine Sulphate, and 1 tablespoon of honey and 1 tablespoon of canola oil immediately after weighing. If you feel that your dog is GAME, give him 30 M.G. of Caffeine Sulphate and I tablespoon of canola oil. If you have him in really good shape, he won't need anything.

    I've always wondered in this game how much is it about the dog and how much is it about the conditioning?
    A dog has to rely on it's trainer much more than say a boxer, it has no real input on it's training plan.

    How often does a lesser dog beat a better animal just because it was conditioned better, saying that, how the hell can you say that the better dog lost when it lost?!?!?
    There's so much grey areas with these dogs.
