Japanese Dog Fighting Rules

Unlike other dog fights, where the dogs fight to the death, Japanese dog fighting is mainly a show of pure power. The rules set for this sport are not focused on winning, but is about what makes a dog lose. Most people think that it is a bloody sport, but Tosa dog fighting is not as bloody as one may imagine.

Ways To Lose
If the dog....
  • does not have or loses its will to fight.
  • loses too much blood.
  • shows any sign of illness.
  • barks or growls.
  • walks 3 or more steps from its opponent.
  • mounts its opponent.
  • lies down for more than 3 minutes (until 15 minutes) / 5 minutes (after 15 minutes).
  • tries to climb the showring.
  • shows or does anything that the judges claim undesirable.

Japanese dog fighting lasts for 30 minutes. If the fight goes over 30 minutes, it is considered a tie. Smoking, eating, and drinking are strictly prohibited. The only people allowed to talk during the fight are the dogs' owners and the judges. The showring must be over 16.5m², with surrounding fences that are 1.5 m.
