Rules and laws are in place to keep control. Dog training in its basic form shares the same ideals.

.

.

Due to rules and regulations in the subway system, large dogs can’t travel with anyone unless it’s a service dog or if the dog can be carried in a carrier.

.

.

This guy has found the loop hole, he’s trained his dog to calmly sit in a bag while he travels is the epitome of what training can do for you.

.

.

Gain control, liberate yourself from having to be concerned of your animal and allow the freedom to go places and do things you’d like to do with your dog. Forward this to someone needing help training their dog.

There’s lesson(s) to be learned if we’d only be “more like dogs”

.

.

Dogs don’t judge nor do they criticize, loyalty isn’t just a hashtag and they’re always happy to see you. Material things are something to chew on, they’re always down for whatever is going on. A dog will always take the initiative when it comes to spilled food, are amazing listeners and unlike people they’ll decrease your blood pressure.

𝐋ike humans, dogs are social animals and work best in packs. Packs succeed because members of the group depend on one another to survive.

.

.

𝐎ur brains works much like a dogs in that we need each other as much as they need us. We are committed and devoted to those that show us the same, coming from the heart and not because they have to.

.

.

𝐘OLO is an acronym for “You only live once” this mentality will not take you far in a pack. The pack behavior is a survival mechanism of sorts, dogs keep their packs small and workable. We too should learn from this

.

.

𝘼nimal experts believe a pack mentality is a huge reason dogs are loyal to us, being committed and devoted to the team.

.

.

𝐋ead your dog, lead your pack and you’ll be viewed as the head or “Alpha” and if they view you as the head they’ll respect and follow your lead. Dogs don’t just love a good cuddle, they know loyalty will keep them alive. It’s funny how being loyal to those that care can make a difference in your life.

Kids always want help out on walks with our dogs but they’re a few things that should be established before doing so. Speaking to your children about responsibilities and positive pet ownership is the first thing you’d should do.

.

.

Suggestions for a positive walk with your dog and children. An adult should always accompany children, avoiding busy streets, with parks or an open area like parking lots being ideal. In training your dog to walk with a child correctly it is best to begin with a two (2) leash approach on the dog, one leash for the handler and one for the child, giving them a feeling of being in control.

.

.

Avoid retractable leashes for they can be difficult for a child to walk a dog with and difficult to use as serious injuries can occur if fingers were to become entwined. On walks it’s best to teach the child to avoid other dogs. Your dog might be gentle and social but you don’t know how the other persons dog is. This can help avoid possible dangerous situation.

.

.

Initially keep walks short and sweet, as the child and dog becomes more comfortable with each other, the length and time of a walk can increase. It’s important to teach children to watch their dogs breathing from walks. Dogs can get tired and over exert themselves to make their owners happy but this can lead to deadly consequences depending on the breed. Therefore teaching to notice the signs can make a difference.

.

.

Keys signs are: heavy breathing, purple/blue gums, lethargy, eyes rolling behind their head, feeling that you have to drag the dog. It’s imperative to note not to give a dog water or food after a long walk as this can contribute to bloat (gastric dilatation volvulus) Bloat happens when a dogs stomach fills with gas, with food or fluid mixing to expand.

.

.

In most cases the dogs stomach will rotate or twis. Let the dog cool down at least 15 mins before allowing them to drink. Lastly, teach children to pay attention to the road laws. Where to cross, respecting stop signs, obeying lights, etc.

Hip dysplasia is an inherited condition that occurs when the hip joint made up of a ball and socket is improperly formed causing the joint to rub and grind instead of sliding smoothly and can drastically reduce your dogs quality of life. The deformation of the joint causes wear, deterioration and eventual loss of function of the joint. Other factors include a dogs weight, level of physical movement and nutrition.

.

.

Sуmрtоmѕ of thе condition uѕuаllу appear in аdult dogs, уоung dogs may аlѕо bе affected. All dog breeds can get hip dysplasia, but lаrgе breeds аrе usually more susceptible. Thеrе аrе vаrіоuѕ trеаtmеntѕ fоr the condition; frоm nаturаl pain relief, lifestyle changes, and in extreme cases, corrective surgery. With proper knowledge and care a dog can still live a long and comfortable life. 

.

.

Signs of hір dуѕрlаѕіа:
* Decreased activity and not wanting to go out for walks, or climbing stairs
* “Bunnу-hорріng”
* Limping or lameness in the back end
* Dіffісultу іn getting uр
* Pain and Stiffness

.

.

Prevention is always the best treatment. Inherited hip dysplasia cannot be fully prevented, responsible breeders should screen for the disease and let the buyer know what to expect. Other preventative measures include wеіght control as exсеѕѕ wеіght аddѕ stress tо thе dоg’ѕ hір joints. Some simple things you can do to control your dog’s weight include measuring exactly how much you feed them, treating them only when they’ve earned it, and taking at least one walk daily for 20-30 minutes (but avoid prolonged runnіng аnd jumping).

This is the Bulldog of today and to many this is the breed that hunted wild hogs, baited bears and bulls and fought dogs. Laughable as today it can barely walk half a mile and is coughing up a lung. To be fair the breed has changed to this more for show and money than anything else but who’s to blame and what can we do?

.

.

Let’s squarely put the blame on breeders and AKC for the loss of so much genetic diversity over the past decades, creating a breed that’s really kind of bred itself into a genetic corner.
Due to the bulldogs limited genes, breeders have very little to rebuild healthy phenotypes.

.

.

I feel that breeders should introduce new genes from outside such as some of these hybrid bulldogs ie: Olde, Victorians and Leavitt bred dogs that can boost the overall health of these animals. I doubt that the diehards will take this idea because the resulting dogs aren’t pedigreed and we’ll don’t look exactly like what today standard is wanting.

.

.

What are your thoughts about this?

The ABBB actually descends from the various types of Bulldogs that were brought by early settlers to the new world. Working Bulldogs were used to control cattle and pigs, hunt small and large game as well as guard the homestead. The bulldogs were bigger, taller and more athletic than the AKC version English Bulldog we see today.

.

.

In 1979, a group of Bulldog lovers set out to preserve what was believed to be a long lost breed. They gave them a name Alapaha Blue-Blood Bulldog — founded the Alapaha Blue-Blood Bulldog Association, and wrote a breed standard. Eventually due to difference of opinions, they broke off and one family (The Lane family of Georgia) has taken credit in the creation of the breed.

.

.

ABBB have also been known by such names as Otto, Cowdog, Silver Dollar and Catahoula Bulldog.

.

.

A story of the Lane family will be posted soon.

When someone says BULLDOG, a dog that looks like this doesn’t initially come to mind but it’s funny how strong the Bulldog blood is that even with a different color coat and eyes, it’s still a Bulldog.

.

Can anyone name the breed?

Continuing with structure of Bulldogs, this fine specimen is Dozer Bruno, an American Bulldog. He was a big Johnson dog from the early 90’s that had just the right amount of leg versus mass that kept him agile enough for his size.

.

.

With each generation, change comes. The same could be said of dogs, this was considered extreme back in my time but looking at todays dogs (check out previous post) and you’ll appreciate a dog like this more and wonder what hallucinogens people are on.
