I often speak of how dogs of my mothers generation and dogs today are so different. Why is this so?

.

.

Humans have changed, simple as that. Dogs are no longer just pets, they’re family. People used to say they couldn’t own a dog until they got a backyard only because that was where the dog would live and sleep. Today, that excuse doesn’t stop anyone from getting a Mastiff and living in a studio.

.

.

Separation anxiety is at an all time high today, dogs are given every imaginable way of keeping busy and then the owner leaves for work and dogs are bored out of their mind doing destructive things to get attention. Dogs 30 years ago barely got any attention other than a bowl of food and water for the day, get a bath every other month and taken for a walk afterwards where the owner sees how undisciplined their dogs are to be put back in the yard for the next few months again.

.

.

I’ll make more points in future posts of how different dogs of past generations are to today. Chime in and share your thoughts of this post.

A coyote in the Echo Park area (Northwest of Downtown Los Angeles) was videoed with what appears to be a large dog toy, possibly a Kong toy stuck in its mouth obstructing it from eating or drinking. Residents and Animal control is looking to capture the coyote to help free it from the toy.

.

.

People have mixed feelings when it comes to coyotes as the numbers of small dogs and cats missing continue to rise with blame placed on them the majority of the time. We have to think of them differently and take most of the responsibility of what is going on.

.

.

WE’VE taken over their habitat, leave trash cans out for days, let our dogs and cats out unattended but continue to blame the coyote. The hypocrisy of humans. We are the top of the food chain so we must help them too. Enough of my rant, oh wait one more thing…. this isn’t the first time I’ve seen a dog get his mouth stuck on a Kong toy. Possibly a better design?

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 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!
