History has a weird way of repeating itself. The Extreme, Exotics and Micro style Bully dogs are a product of trying to produce a dog smaller and more extreme than the norm.

.

.

This has already happened in dog history, and I’m sure it will happen again. Take a look at the picture and can anyone tell me what breed went through it before the Pit Bull?

Is aggression a learned behavior or genetics? …

Is aggression a learned behavior or genetics? In humans, studies have determined that aggression is a learned behavior but what about in dogs?

.

.

Many dog behaviorist believe that aggression is a taught behavior from us to them, that dogs aren’t born that way, they’re raised to be so. Here’s their argument: a puppy growls at another dog, people would often overlook and say “he’s a puppy” and without thinking PRAISE the behavior and from that point on, aggression is instantaneously OK’d in a dogs mind.

.

.

This is often called an Operant behavior, aggressive behavior is Operant behavior. Operant: a behavior that is initially spontaneous, rather than a response to a stimulus, consequences reinforces the recurrence of that behavior.

.

.

Although this is how dog aggression begins I lean with the theory that genetics plays more of a role that behaviorist want to believe. Dog fighting breeds genetically will show aggression towards other dogs whether or not someone is perpetuating it, in the end it comes down to the individual dog.

.

.

What are your thoughts, is your dog too aggressive to be around people and other dogs?

One of the worst thing you can instill in a child is FEAR. Fear of dogs, reptiles, animals in general. Fear of not being good enough, strong enough or loved enough.

.

.

Growing up in the inner city I witnessed for myself how a phobia of dogs were instilled in children. I had no fear of animals, let alone dogs and knew I would raise my kids to be the same way.

.

.

Here’s a small sample of my youngest children “living their best life” when it comes to hanging with dad, dogs and reptiles…..

The same way a smile from a human is a simple …

The same way a smile from a human is a simple means of communication a wagging tail of a dog is their way of notifying intentions. A common myth is a dogs wagging tail, denotes a happy and friendly signal. Indeed a tail that is wagging is usually a sign of friendliness, it can also mean other things such as an insecurity or fear.

.

.

First let’s ask this question, do dogs wag their tails when no one is watching or when there is no stimulation? Sure they do, much like facial expressions you’d make thinking of thoughts or seeing objects that triggers a memory. A dog will do the same but with a different wag.

.

.

Wags are a way of communicating with one another as well as with us. Sort of a (body) language with vocabularies and grammar injected here and there. Positions and movement make up the load of how dogs address each other and humans. A dog will focus on the way a dog carries (moves) its tail
as their more keen to its movements and places it sets its tail. Breeds like the Beagle which carry their tails straight up and stiff also tend to have a white tip helping other dogs identify better.

.

.

A tale of a tail’s position; where a dog carries its tail can tell you where your dogs is emotionally. A dog carrying its tail mid height suggests he’s relaxed. A tail held horizontally, and a dog is usually attentive and alert. A vertical tail is a dominant signal. On the other end, a tail that lowers is a sign of becoming submissive with a tucked tail under its body identifying a sign of fear.

Outside of Italy a breed of dog is still used …

Outside of Italy a breed of dog is still used as a pet, watchdog, livestock guardian, a working dog. The Dogo Sardo is rare and literally unknown outside Italy rarely seen outside of it’s native region. The breed is so valued to the people of Sardinia from where it was developed that they refuse to sell puppies to foreigners. The breed today continues to serve as a Breed of Purpose.

.

.

For hundreds of years pups born and raised in Sardinia as stated above hardly were sold and because of this, its been difficult to determine the genetics of the breed. It is believed to some certainty that their offspring is of the same genetic root as dogs of the past with similar features that existed in the middle ages, sharing a legacy with the Neapolitan Mastiff, Cane Corso and others.

.

.

Although considered a purebred in its own right, the breed is not recognized by the Federation Cynologique Internationale (FCI) and because of this no breed standard has been placed nor written rules to regulate its characteristics.

.

.

Sharing similarities to its cousin the Cane Corso, its body is thinner, athletic and muscular, with a powerful neck and distinctive Cane head with a longer muzzle. Ears are usually cropped, tail is optional. As previously stated, their is no known standard for the Dogo Sardo, but experts agree that dogs have an average height of 23 to 26inches at the shoulders and a weight of 60 to 90lbs but its not set in stone.

.

.

Its coat is short and very thick (comparable to a boar) and evenly striped in various shades resembling a boar, but rarely white. The appearance of the Dogo Sardo denotes elegance, power and wildness at the same time.
