I’ve been blessed to have owned and/or trained every dog breed I’ve ever wanted to. The French Mastiff or #doguedebordeaux was one of my favorites breeds to own. I had two (2) males that were athletic as any big dog and also excelled in bite work – Reno and Slob. I’ve yet to see one in 30 years that would actually work as hard as the ones I owned.
.
.

I must add that owning these majestic dog breeds has only helped me better understand the differences of behavior from breed to breed as well as gain an overall knowledge in dealing with each one with the respect that comes with ownership of the different breeds.

#throwbackthursday share any interesting stories of your dogs, here is mine….
.
.

I noticed bags of dog food would be raided and slobbered by one of the dogs but I couldn’t figure out which would do it since they were all in kennels. One day I looked out the window and noticed Reno popping his gate open, go into the bag of food, eat a few large gulps of dog food then retreat back into his kennel, all the while closing the latch behind him. Smh this guy was too clever for his own self.

One of the difficult things about being an actor is sometimes the job can uproot you and take you anywhere and although it’s a blessing to be able to travel the world for work it sometimes leaves at home responsibilities and life randomly in limbo. Anyone who knows me knows Judah and I are attached at the hip so when #whiskeycavalier announced we were shooting in Prague my first thought was “What about the baby?” Anyone with a bulldog knows traveling with them can be very difficult for a number of reasons. So I called up my man @stevethedogtrainer asked for some help and he agreed to travel with Judah AND help get him adjusted internationally. Got so much love for this guy right here and the work he does. He’s been in Judah and my life since the day we came together and has been committed to the pups health and happiness ever since. Please go check out his page for ANY of your dog needs, breed knowledge, and training tips 🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽 #frenchbulldog #frenchiesofinstagram

Hanged with my bud, Judah the frenchie through much of my time in Prague. We met a few furry friends, enjoyed the country and it’s amazing food culture.

.
.

Extra special Thank you to @willtylerjames for the amazing time and hospitality. I truly enjoyed my experience and the effort you put in. It was much appreciated.

A good or bad behavior will continue if allowed to get away with, as your pet views good or bad as ok. Correcting an issue early will sway your pet from continuing said behavior you’re not approving of.

In the dog world, it’s called TRAINING your dog to do a habit “over and over again, correctly” but I like the term “CONDITION” to do so on an everyday basis without skipping a beat.

.

.

One of the reasons I was brought out to Prague was to continue the CONDITIONING that Judah has at home and establish the same in another place, this time in another country.

.

.

Judah has acclimated very quickly and for those that will say, “that litter box is too small” we have already ordered a larger box with a reservoir for the rainy/snowy months ahead.

FORM FOLLOWS FUNCTION is a 20th-century princi…

FORM FOLLOWS FUNCTION is a 20th-century principle which says that an object should primarily relate to its intended function or purpose.
.
.

This is important to note as many breeds today don’t follow this principle. In fact breeding for extremism is more common than functionality and without function then form will not follow.

.
.

This is what an ENGLISH MASTIFF should look like. The perfect balance of front to back to height, even weight distribution throughout its frame and the overall structure is impeccable on this dog. It should be noted that he’s not as wrinkled, sloppy or overly massive, as today’s dogs. Take note how alert he appears and gives the appearance of a dog with endless amounts of energy.
.
.

This picture was likely taken sometime in the early 1900’s and if you know what today’s MASTIFF looks like (slide right to see) it’s a different breed we are comparing. Over a short amount of time a more extreme version has been promoted versus the dog pictured.
.
.

So why don’t dogs follow the same pattern as before? The reason is the purpose of many breeds isn’t coveted as it once was and breeders breed for the show ring to compete in conformation rather than any workability and functionality. Add to the fact that breed clubs and parent registry AKC, the American Kennel Club pushes for dogs to look or exceed conformation standards that promote extremisms.
.
.

In your own opinion did modern breeding practices improve today’s dogs or make them impractical physically?

What is a Cynologist, someone asked after reading my bio. At first I thought to ignore the question as maybe they’ll look up the definition themselves but then I remembered, what if their millennial’s?

.
.

Cynology is the study of matters related to canines and/or domestic dogs. To be exact, it is a term used to denote a serious zoological approach to the study of dogs by writers on canine subjects, dog breeders, trainers and enthusiasts who informally study dogs.

.
.

One thing I enjoy doing is educating myself and others about dogs, their purpose and history. So being a self imposed Cynologist, it allows me to enjoy both while giving myself a moniker.

Your dog can never be too old or too young to start training (within reason). Same can be said for a person, (again, within reason) Everyone must be involved, if they want their dog to listen.
.
.
Obviously aside from teaching a child RESPONSIBILITY, like having to remember to feed, provide fresh water, and to clean up after their dog. A relationship that develops can be life-changing for a child as they themselves continue to grow and develop.
.
.
When training a dog, I press to my clients how important PATIENCE is to teach their dogs. In turn, dogs teach children patience as a dog can be frustrating. Puppies like to nip and chew, scratch, jump and slobber while getting to children’s toys and destroying them as it’s theirs. Patience teaches children restrain all the while to teach without yelling and/or hitting a dog.
.
.
What I know for sure is that dogs teach children COMPASSION, understanding the feeling of emotions and pain. As dogs have short lives, and a child would more than likely be there for their dogs entire life cycle, a lesson however hard it may be is an invaluable lesson for a child as they comfort their dog and cope with their loss.
.
.
And most importantly how much FUN they will have with their best friend and pet by all the interaction they’ll have throughout their lifetime. From dressing them up, to taking them for walks. Spending time training and playing fetch. Your dog is always their through good and bad days as they’re always there to cheer you up.

Training with me doesn’t always have to be “walking in the middle of a park and making your dog do sit and heel commands” it comes down to learning how to communicate with your pet.
.
.
Anyone who’s worked with me knows that I try to explain every step of the way:
.
.
what your dog is doing
.
.
why he’s doing it
.
.
and what’s he going to do next.
.
.
A more educated client is a better client. A client that knows his dog, how to read his dog and who’s connected with his dog will make a better owner and friend for his pet.
.
.
Those of you who’s trained with me, share with others how you’ve learned about your dog and what I’m talking about down below 👇🏽
