Hi Steve, My fiancé and I have a Brazilian Mastiff who is just over a year and a half old. We differ on our opinions with disciplining Bruno and I’d like some advice from you. If you would like to email I would be fine with that. Thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing from you. Sheri Burns

Here is my email prestigedog@yahoo.com when you respond give me a little more info especially how you’d like to correct versus your fiancé’ idea of a correction.

Look fwd to hearing from you guys and hope I can help

Steve

He’s a 10 year old #servicedog who likes long walks in the park, drinking out the toilet and spending quiet times with the thunder cats at the convalescent homes.

REPOST
.

This is a post I did two (2) years ago regarding #columbusday What’s funny in that short period of time things have changed, in #california that day is now considered #indigenousday and for good reasons. Despite beliefs that Columbus found #America there is another side of history that most don’t know and ever talk about.
.
.
In the early years of Columbus’ conquest’s very little is talked about his hands in the many indigenous people who were massacred in butcher shops set up throughout the #Caribbean where their chopped up remains were sold as #dogfood.
.
.
During this period, a practice known as the “Montería Infernal” translated the “Infernal Chase” (manhunts) in which enslaved Indians were released or those that escaped were hunted by #War dogs as a sport to appease those in charge.
.
.
Dogs themselves were protected by armor vest and spiked collars to protect against #weapons that could have been used against them. To add insult to injury, the flesh of humans were fed to incite the dogs and in some cases in front of horrified parents their babies were fed to punish the people.
.
.
This is a gruesome side of how dogs served a purpose in history and what little was known about the day that we celebrated with admiration when we we’re children.

What do these signs mean to you? If you own a dog you’ve…

What do these signs mean to you? If you own a dog you’ve acquired to protect your home, the correct signage can protect you and your dog from a potential law suit.
Ever heard the phrase “think before you speak” the wording and how its perceived in a signage is just as important.
Take for instance the top sign states “Beware of Dog” while the bottom one says “Dogs on premises” They both are meant to warn people to stay out of your yard and property but one of them can be hurtful in an event you are ever in a legal battle. “Beware of Dog” is telling someone that “I have a dog in my property and he will bite if you step onto said property” While the “Dogs on Premises” is stating “there are dogs on my property, I’m not alluding to either they’re aggressive nor passive, simply stating that I have dogs”
The simple play on words can help you in the event that someone does get bit on your property (if they’re breaking and entering)

Repost; I was asked if vitiligo in dogs is true.
.
.

Yes in fact it’s true and easy to explain, firstly Vitilago is a disease that causes the loss of skin color in blotches.
.
.

Although Vitiligo is a skin disease it is not considered life threatening. Every dog is different and to this extent Vitilago affects dogs variably as some will experience full depigmentation while others will only have a depigmented nose.
.
.

There are no known treatments but some Veterinarians suggest exposing your dog to the sun as the UV rays are believed to help. #Homeopathic treatments may also be used according to your dogs health and conditions.
.
.

Here is a list of breeds that are more at risk to develop Vitilago:# GermanShepherds #BelgianTervuren #Rottweilers #OldEnglishSheepdogs #Dachshunds

Food for thought…. . . If you were to go to a country,…

Food for thought….
.
.
If you were to go to a country, let’s say Russia for conversation sakes and the people began speaking to you (obviously) in Russian, would you understand what they were saying?
.
.

Chances are you wouldn’t know what is being said to you unless you knew the language.
.
.

So for you new dog owners use this same analogy, how do you suppose your dog to understand a command let alone what you are saying to them when they don’t know the language.

The history of the #puli leads back as far as 5500 years ago,…

The history of the #puli leads back as far as 5500 years ago, today #Hungary is the official country of origin. Don’t let the hair fool ya, with a sharp eyesight, sensitive hearing, and a suspicious nature towards strangers, the Puli is serious about his responsibility as a watchdog and is more than willing to back up its bark with a bite.
.

Fun fact: During WWII Pulis left behind were shot by the Germans and Russians seeking to silence the barking Puli. On a positive note, around the mid 1800’s the breed was one of the most expensive dogs to acquire as the price of a GOOD Puli puppy was about equal to the earnings of a shepherd for a full year.
.

It’s not a #scottie nor a #cairn but both breeds played an important role in the development of the #westhighlandwhiteterrier Originating from #scotland the breed is highly energetic and usually possessive of its owners, toys and food. Along with it being independent and stubborn, these traits completes it to be a competent watchdog.
.

Fun fact: The #westies “white coats” was a desirable quality in their later history as it easily distinguished them from their game in hunts. This is important to note as in their early history, white puppies were culled as they were deemed “weak” compared to the darker sandy colored or brindle dogs.
.

The #softcoatedwheatenterrier was bred in #ireland for over two hundred years as an all purpose dog (herding, vermin and watchdog) Although a terrier at heart, the Wheaten is not as scrappy as other terriers. Highly intelligent yet head strong, energetic with a high prey drive finishes this dog as a more than capable watchdog.
.

Fun fact: Known as enthusiastic greeter’s one will often find a Wheaten’s jumping up to lick your face, within the breed this is commonly referred to as the “Wheaten Greeten”
The breed was commonly referred to as the “poor man’s wolfhound” as in the extra large #irishwolfhound this is because only the gentry (the class below nobility) were allowed to own large dogs, so terriers like the Wheaten were left for the lower class to use.
.

Honorable mentions: Tibetan Terriers and Jagd Terriers
