The original caption translated to “Alabai and the wolf” I’m posting it to bring attention to how dangerous a wild animal whether it be a wolf, coyote, mountain lion, etc can be to our pets.

.

.

Recently I was engaged in a conversation with several gentlemen regarding the ferocity of the #alabai #centralasianshepherd against wild predators. In general, these Mastiff dogs are tough, no nonsense dogs that are primarily defense driven. I’m not questioning that.

.

.

What I do question is when fan boys of the breed post videos of these dogs killing a wolf and play to their audience that the breed is tougher than a wild animal. Forums and opinions feed on this but their usually something else that people don’t know when they watch the videos.

.

.

A wolf would be caught, either drugged and starved and then after a few days they’d let a dog on them. Obviously not fair, uncalled for and not a realistic view as to what would go on in the real world. What are your thoughts on this and knowing more of how it really happens do you still agree that these dogs are as tough as advertised?

If your dogs a retriever, does he have to retrieve? If it’s a Pit Bull, does he have to fight? If it’s a Husky, well you get it…..

The original post said “saved by the dogs” if you read my second to last post I wrote about the importance of owning a dog for home protection. Watch how these dogs saved this man from possible harm.

His name is Vinny a purebred French Bulldog with cropped ears, loved by Susan and Barry of Yorba Linda Ca. This is his story.

My ex daughter in law had a litter of Frenchies. At 6wks she allowed the puppies to be shown, Vinny the pick of litter. A gentleman made arrangements to view the puppies at 3pm. He called throughout the day to move the time citing family issues, finally arriving at 8:45pm. 45 mins into viewing he became antsy and nervous, picking Vinny up & tucking him under his coat running out the front door. Vinny was stolen and a police report was filed.

A few months later a Frenchie breeder in Santa Ana Ca. received a call for her pups. Upon arrival a man looking for a pup, ran out the house shoving the owner out the way with the mother of the pups in his arms. A police report was filed and after putting the stories together found that the same guy had stolen both dogs catching him 5 months later.

Vinny was returned but with his ears cropped. Knowing he couldn’t be sold in his altered condition, my granddaughter pleaded with me to come see and possibly adopt him. I wasn’t prepared for a dog as my mother and sister both diagnosed with cancer had recently moved in. With a full plate I knew it’d be much to add a 5 month old pup but the minute I layed eyes on Vinny “it was love at first sight” and he hasn’t left my side since.

Vinny has had his share of health issues. He’s lost some hearing in his ears and has developed eye ulcers requiring graphs where he’s loss some sight but you wouldn’t know it as he’s happy, funny and loved by everyone he meets. Vinny’s loves other dogs especially Biscuit, the Boston. Every time we come from shopping he’s checking bags for a new ball having at least 100 already. He sleeps with his paw like a pacifier and plays a ‘ratting’ game i’d never seen a dog do before. We thought he had a mental disorder as he’s so intense! One of my faves is the way he walks on a leash prancing on his tip toes to look taller as my protector. They’re many more stories could tell about Vinny but in the end we love him.

Regular

You can purchase a solid door with the best locks, you can bullet proof your windows and even get an alarm but nothing beats owning a dog as it’s the best deterrent money can buy. The majority of law enforcement will attest to that last statement as a home with a dog is less likely to be burglarized.

.

.

A dog is an intangible a burglar has little answers to deal with. They can pick locks, break doors, climb buildings but once encountered by a dog, especially one that’s been properly trained to protect and commit, then odds are in you’re favor.

.

.

Before you get excited and go out to purchase a dog, read the rest of this post. “If a dog has never seen it, he wouldn’t know how to deal with it” My clients have heard me say this time and again, but what do I mean by this statement?

.

.

Let’s take this as an example, a dog is acquired for the purpose to protect, breeds such as Rottweilers and German Shepherd are usually thought of because of their history as a legitimate guard dog. Simply purchasing a “guard type dog” isn’t going to solve your protection needs.

.

.

Let’s go back to the quote, “if a dog has never seen it, he wouldn’t know how to deal with it” The majority of dogs especially one that hasn’t been formally trained would not know how to handle a legitimate situation such as a break-in or home invasion robbery because he’s never experienced an episode and wouldn’t know what to do. Although acquiring a breed is a good beginning, it’s only the beginning.

.

.

For a dog a little known instinct would kick in what’s called “fight or flight” and in many cases if given a chance to run the dog will do so. Now they’re is always the exception to the rule but in my experience I’ve dealt with many dogs choosing the flight versus the fight.

.

.

What one should know a “home protection dog” is just that and not a guard dog (a dog that is placed in an area to guard) and this is not a personal protection dog (a dog trained to protect your personal, similar to a K9 police dog) A home protection dog is for the purpose of defending ones home. This is a dog that is loyal to its family and household, obedient as well as super social. If one is in the market for a dog don’t trust the words of the breeder as their job other than finding a good home for the pup is to sell you the goods and that goes with telling you what you want to hear. Formal training is needed to fully have confidence that the dog will do the job if ever in a predicament.

.

.

In the end it takes training to achieve results, a reputable breeder will put genetics together but it training in the right direction will get the results.

Next time people think they’re just dogs, remember they’re also family. Dogs are part of our world, life, our moral fabric. Even at the top levels of our government, a dog made a difference in someone’s life. So important that they gave him his chance to pay his last respects.

This is time of the year dogs are given as gifts and just like most gifts, they’re forgotten by January. A house doesn’t need a dog unless it’s ready for one.

.

.

Before giving the gift that keeps shitting, rethink that thought as they’re so many dogs in shelters and dog pounds.

.

.

If you do bring home a dog, that home will be complete with a dog. Do the right thing and train your dog to fit your lifestyle and family needs. Pick the right breed and make the time to put into your new family member.

.

.

This is to everyone who does bring home a puppy/dog this holiday season, if you need help with your new acquisition don’t hesitate to reach out… Happy Holidays all🎄

The perfect crop can be the perfect flop! Ear …

The perfect crop can be the perfect flop! Ear cropping can come with mixed emotions. Some think it’s inhumane while others wouldn’t recognize a breed unless its ears were cropped. A step by step of what you should know about cropping your pets ears.

First make sure pup is up to date on shots and ideally be between 9 and 12 weeks of age, older dogs can be cropped but it’s more complicated. Before surgery, be sure to withhold food for 12 hrs as it can cause vomiting and aspiration (inhaling of its vomit)

A qualified Veterinarian will go over the style of crop and which will best fit your dog. During surgery, ears will bleed as they are quite vascular. Once cut and styled the ears are sutured. A couple hours out of surgery, your pup will be ready to go home where the real care begins. Ears can bleed for a few days after surgery. They will be sore and painful to touch or when your pup attempts to scratch at the sutures.

Throughly removing scabs will speed up the recovery process by half the time. Ears can be cleaned using peroxide, drenching on a paper towel and wiping the scabs off. Once scabs are removed, some bleeding will happen. Use a triple antibiotic ointment prescribed by your vet to moisten and protect the dogs ears. Missing a day of cleaning can cause excess scabbing. Genetics plays a role as well as length and style of ear crop. Breeds like Pit Bulls and Cane Corso will stand faster than a Great Dane.

This part takes a lot of patience,
taping of the ears. Taping begins once sutures are off, the process of taping can take upwards to a couple of months depending on style and breed. Taping should only be done by a professional, if the taping is too tight irreversible problems will occur, if done too loose, they’ll never never stand up correctly.

If the tape gets wet, take them off immediately as an infection can happen. If they are coming off, take them all the way off and take the dog to be re-taped.

My new installment to #dogsandpeople series in…

My new installment to #dogsandpeople series introduces you to @ozzietheshepherd Ozzie’s been through several trainers in his 3 years, all having different ideas, methods and approach in training through his aggression issues.

.

.

Ozzie came from a litter of working and show dogs. Audrey (Oz’s human companion) took a video of her picking from the litter and after reviewing the video she began seeing some behavior and temperament issues and phoned the breeder to see if she can exchange with the other available male whom she thought would be a better fit. The breeder assured her she had made the right choice, stating “all her dogs are good” This is where I tell you, “a breeder will tell you everything you want to hear, to make a sale”

.

.

Throughout Ozzie’s formative months, behavioral and aggression issues kept a stream of trainers (6) shuffling in/out of their lives. The first trainer said Oz was a liability and she should return him to the breeder. At 7 months old, Audrey was faced with returning Oz again but changed her mind again. Audrey enrolled Oz with a 3rd trainer who had a boot camp and while there notified her of a potential buyer for him. Searching for guidance on the right choice, Audrey began to pray and randomly opened her bible to this passage (slide to the right) “I started crying because in my heart I believed this was my sign, and I trusted the good lord” From that day she stuck it out.

.

.

Audrey feels that Ozzie came into her life for a reason and has no regrets of all the work and stress that they’ve been through. “I believe things come into our lives for a reason to learn from or make us stronger to change our ways” says Audrey. “I have learned to be patient and calm because of Ozzie, if you knew me before Ozzie” Personally knowing Oz and hopefully being his last trainer, he is a loyal loving family dog with only a few dog issues but which dog is perfect.
