One of my favorite group of dogs are Hounds. I’m feeling like writing up on a few that I’d like to personally own in the future, so I’ll be sporadically writing about them in the coming post.
.
.

Can anyone name this breed?

Socialization is an everyday thing with dogs but the most important time to begin imprinting your puppy for YOUR life is the minute you bring them home. It’s widely accepted that between 4 to 12 weeks of age, puppies absorb their environment immensely. It’s crucial to carefully introduce different types of stimuli every day to your puppy and always making sure that it’s a positive experience.
.
.

These isolated socialization efforts can and will make a difference in your dog’s future outlook of life. In time with different experiences and as the puppy begins to become comfortable familiarizing with new things, they’ll begin to take on new encounters like different places, loud noises, objects, new people, shopping carts, smells and other animals with stride.
.
.

The key to socialization is to get to it while the puppy is young. Many pups can become socially handicapped if socializing begins after a certain time, usually 14 weeks of age but it depends on the dog, breed and how you approach the job at that time. It’s not to say that a pup can’t still be socialized but in many respects, the job is harder. At this stage a pup not only is learning basic of commands but has already established other inappropriate behaviors that need to be undone firstly before moving forward in positive socializing. In any case, the best thing to do with your puppy is to approach it in a preventative manner.

.
.

In a previous posting I explained the different bloodlines of American Bulldogs and of how the lines made up the breed as we know today. Predator (Niko’s sire) was the first Schutzhund titled American Bulldog in the history of the breed and of the sport. His son Niko (pictured) was the most titled American Bulldog at that time.
.
.

Maizee (Niko’s dam) was a full sister to my dog Hammer who I personally competed and titled in the sport of Schutzhund. As a team we were the youngest and at the time only the 3rd American Bulldog to be titled in Schutzhund in the history of the sport.

ᴇᴅɪᴛᴏʀɪᴀʟ
.
.

In August 2000, the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) published their “Law Enforcement Canine Model Policy”. This was the first time in the history of police canine where a law enforcement association recommended a training philosophy of “bark and hold”. Their model policy stated “Training and deployment of police canines shall employ the “guard and bark” rather than the “guard and hold” method”. IACP has re-issued this model policy in September 2001. IACP still remains the only law enforcement association that has recommended this training philosophy.
.
.

The idea of the hold and bark has its importance in evaluating temperament and character of the dog in the areas of courage and fighting drives for a sport such as Schutzhund, but can be enforced for civilian use if more departments trained for it. The problem with law enforcement is that most Departments view it as “sport bullshit” and not viewed with enough importance, as their views are “if the perpetrator runs, he should get bit”
.
.

I can see how it can be scary for a criminal who is running from a dog to try to listen to the officers/handlers command to stop moving when a dog is upon them and it’s not always that easy for a dog to distinguish if a criminal is trying to stop in live action. Therefore its probably not going to happen in the majority of cases but if more departments enforce the rule and dogs are taught correctly then the chances of departments being sued can and should go down over time.

This is when you know you’re either dealing with a novice or a dumbass. This way of thinking is not uncommon, some people believe that a dog must be mean and aggressive to make a good protection dog. This idea is so far from the truth.
.
.

If a protection dog is there to protect you, then he should be there next to you the whole time, where ever you are, with whom ever you might be around whether that be humans, dogs, horses, it doesn’t matter.
.
.

Now if we were to think the way some of those people believe then your protection dog wouldn’t be there to protect you. He’ll be too aggressive to handle and would growl and try to bite anyone that is around you. Human, dog, horse, you get it. In a nutshell you’ll have to kennel him.
.
.

So this deceives the point of raising and training a dog in that manner. I felt sorry for the pup as he was a friendly little guy. I’ll write up a better explanation in the coming post. In the meantime your thoughts and comments on this would be much appreciated….
