I don't agree with Frawley (the author of the above quote). IMO and in my experience, fight drive (not fighting drive which is developed) is genetic, an innate drive in some dogs. It can be seen in fairly young animal if one knows what they are looking for. They are not defensive dogs or prey crazy dogs. They are animals that relish in the fight for the fight.
Whether or not your puppy has fight drive is really hard to tell when in a game with another dog. He may just love the game and be harder in temperament than his littermate.
