Have you ever heard of “Scratch Reflex”

.

Dogs shake or kick their legs when you scratch them because it activates nerves under their skin that are connected to their spinal cord and relays a message to their leg muscles to kick in an attempt to get rid of the irritant.

.

Maybe you want to rethink of scratching them the next time you find it funny. 🤷🏻‍♂️

The number of fires identified by satellite im…

The number of fires identified by satellite images in the Amazon so far is the highest since 2010 (Brazil’s National Institute of Space Research agency) The number of fires identified in the Amazon region so far this year is 40,341, about 35 percent higher than the average for the first eight months of each year since 2010.

.

Natural fires in the Amazon are rare, the majority of these fires were set by farmers preparing Amazon-adjacent farmland for next year’s crops and pasture. Much of the land that is burning was not old-growth rain forest, but land that had already been cleared of trees and set for agricultural use.

.

Deforestation is always a cause for concern. Last year, the world lost about 30 million acres of tree cover, including 8.9 million acres of primary rain forest, an area the size of Belgium, according to data from the University of Maryland.

.

The destruction of the Amazon rain forest in Brazil has increased rapidly since the nation’s new far-right president took over and his government scaled back efforts to fight illegal logging, ranching and mining.

.

While campaigning for president last year, Mr. Bolsonaro declared that Brazil’s vast protected lands were an obstacle to economic growth and promised to open them up to commercial exploitation.

.

Less than a year into his term, that is already happening. Brazil’s part of the Amazon lost more than 1,330 square miles of forest cover in the first half of 2019, a 39 percent increase over the same period last year, according to the government agency that tracks deforestation.

.

The Amazon is often referred to as Earth’s “lungs,” because its vast forests release oxygen and store carbon dioxide, a heat-trapping gas that is a major cause of global warming. If enough rain forest is lost and can’t be restored, the area will become savanna, which doesn’t store as much carbon, meaning a reduction in the planet’s “lung capacity.”

.

These fires were not caused by climate change. They were caused by HUMANS.

The story goes, these two pit bull bulls became feral (a dog that has escaped domestication and returned partly or wholly to a wild state) weeks after Hurricane Katrina had passed, they were hungry and attacked the Bull. Photo’s we’re captured by a reporter for the Sunday Telegraph who eventually flagged down National Guardsmen who shot and killed both dogs.

Actual and Factual: “they fought like cats and dogs”

.

.

According to the Webster Ninth New Collegiate Dictionary, the expression fight like cats and dogs came about around 1550. Idiomation was unable to trace the exact phrase back to 1550, however, a variation was traced back to at least 1610 when William Shakespeare used a similar phrase in
“The Tragedie of Cymbeline: King of Britaine”

.

.

As for the meeting of cats and dogs @theothescammer ran out of gas before @0bithekitty so officially they didn’t fight like cats and dogs but slept like puppies and kittens…..

Posting this for all to see, this isn’t to shame anyone but to continue to educate.

.

.

On my stories I posed a question (watch the story again to see for yourself), is it ok for the puppy to lay down even though I told her to sit/stay after a minute or so into the command but I didn’t correct her. Was this OK?

.

.

It was ok, which is why all that answered “YES” said so. Part of the training is to also teach the puppy PATIENCE. A patient puppy will grow up to be a more patient adult and will happily remain on a longer sit as it gets older, wiser and trained/conditioned for the command.

.

.

Lastly I’d like to add, all those that answered YES are clients of mine. So thank you to all of you guys for remembering the training we’ve done with your dog! For those that still don’t understand, DM me and I’ll explain in more detail or just train your dog with me and you’ll get all my expertise of training for your dog! ✌🏽

Reposting in memory of my boy Dempsey! Started with him at two (2) years old (you CAN train an old dog) he was put down yesterday after a fight with Cancer. Demp you will be missed…..

.

If you are having problems with your dog and need help , you need to contact @stevethedogtrainer -STDT. Meet Dempsey the boxer , he was such a wild child very stubborn and strong,enter Steve . He not only helped me get him under control but we expanded his training to be a personal protection dog , Steve is an amazing trainer ,he knows how to handle each individual dog based on their personality which I think very important since one style does not fit every dog . Steve is always ready to help you with any questions anytime. I cannot say enough good things about this man and would recommend him to anyone , Steve is not only a honest person and a great father to all his children but all around great trainer. I cannot thank you enough for showing me what a great dog Dempsey is and will be forever!

Rules and laws are in place to keep control. Dog training in its basic form shares the same ideals.

.

.

Due to rules and regulations in the subway system, large dogs can’t travel with anyone unless it’s a service dog or if the dog can be carried in a carrier.

.

.

This guy has found the loop hole, he’s trained his dog to calmly sit in a bag while he travels is the epitome of what training can do for you.

.

.

Gain control, liberate yourself from having to be concerned of your animal and allow the freedom to go places and do things you’d like to do with your dog. Forward this to someone needing help training their dog.

There’s lesson(s) to be learned if we’d only be “more like dogs”

.

.

Dogs don’t judge nor do they criticize, loyalty isn’t just a hashtag and they’re always happy to see you. Material things are something to chew on, they’re always down for whatever is going on. A dog will always take the initiative when it comes to spilled food, are amazing listeners and unlike people they’ll decrease your blood pressure.
