My series of Working dogs we hardly hear or talk about.
.
.

The men who developed the Airedale didn’t come from Aristocracy or weren’t Gentlemen of the sporting dog world but everyday Working Class people. They were mostly farmers and hunters living near the Ayre (Aire) and Wharfe Rivers near Yorkshire, England.
.
.

Around 1860’s in that region of England a “do everything” type dog was needed that could control vermin as well as bring in birds for the table. A dog with the courage to stay in the fight and protect, a dog of high character, surely a weather resistant coat, not to mention exemplary hunting instincts and the gentleness to be a family dog. Strong swimming attributes as well as being an efficient bird dog was also on the list of needs.
.
.

An assortment of breeds contributed to the creation of the AIREDALE. As was common in those days, many breeds were mixed that had the attributes needed for the dog to be fulfilled. It is believed the now extinct Black and Tan terrier, Otterhound, Broken-Coated Terrier and English Bull terrier contributed towards the creation of the breed with other Terrier breeds which may or may not have been mixed in. The end product first become known as the Waterside Terrier, then the Bingley Terrier, and finally by 1879 the Airedale terrier.
.
.

Dog writer Holland Buckley wrote a book called “The Airedale Terrier” (c. 1900), in which he stated “he [the Airedale] is a three-in-one gun dog combining the virtues of the pointer, spaniel and retriever.” Alas the breed was finally considered a Sporting Dog where it’s popularity in North America grew quickly becoming the most popular breed in the United States between the 1920’s and 30’s.
.
.

The breeds popularity waned for years after due to many factors, one of which is the choices of other working breeds. In the past 30 plus years, Airedale fanciers has successfully restored the breeds versatility as a hunting dog and one of purpose.

whч dσgs hσwl?
.
.

Howling is a normal behavior, sharing with it’s ancestral background of the wolf.
.
.

A dog will commonly howl when the persistent sounds of a siren is heard.
Howling will also occur when a dog is feeling territorial or stressed out. More than likely a dog would howl to alert to other dogs that they’re getting close to their territory or signal them to leave. I’ve witnessed dogs howling after a few minutes of their owners leaving, it’s like their saying “come back home already”
.
.

In the end maybe your dog likes to hear themselves howl, just as some of us like singing in the shower 🚿

28 years of experience in the dog business and I’ve yet to meet a (perfect) dog or person. When your dog makes a mistake, stop and teach them so they learn from it.
.
.

When we don’t show them what’s right and over look the mistake, we are at fault for procrastinating as well as sending the wrong signal to your dog that making mistakes has no consequences.
.
.

We all (dogs and humans) make mistakes. That’s life. It’s how we handle those mistakes is what’s important. All we can do is turn them into learning experiences and use them to grow.
.
.

Dogs will make mistakes, but his owner will do more.

Flashback Friday with @jager_the_malinois
.
.

Any trainer bringing home a puppy will begin socializing, conditioning and training the minute they touch home. So why do trainers tell you to begin training when the puppy is closer to six (6) month of age?
.
.


One of the answer is most trainers don’t want to deal with puppies from a young age as it’s a lot of work to guide the puppy and owner for months. I’ve worked with trainers who were taught from schools that teach DOG TRAINING and they’re verbiage is that by 6 months old the possibility that it will develop bad habits and behavioral issues in that time span are higher and it’s good for business as they can charge more for work that has to be undone.
.

Being that it’s #flashbackfriday I’m posting a few pics of jager beginning with the puppy tug in bite work and where he is today. Follow his page to see our adventures.

The American Cocker Spaniel originates from the English Cocker Spaniel. Most consider them the same breed, with the Cocker simply being smaller.
.
.

Two dogs were recorded, a Mastiff and the first English Cocker Spaniel according to records came across on the Mayflower from Plymouth in 1620.
.
.

Despite its long history, the first Spaniel registered by the American Kennel Club (AKC) was only in 1878.
.
.

Oprah Winfrey owned the Chocolate variety and for a time it was the most difficult color to find.
.
.

As a kid, I owned a Cocker Spaniel named Cookie.

Whatever you give a baby, the first thing they’ll do is place the object into their mouths. It is one way how babies learn about new things.
.
.

Puppies are no different as their sensory are beginning to take shape and since dogs have no arms or fingers, they utilize their mouths as would a human picking up an object and observing and feeling it, a way to explore the new finding.
.
.

In fact chewing is natural for your dog. Imagine if your dog lived in the wild, this behavior would be acceptable as their wouldn’t be anyone out there to deter him from chewing on it.
.
.

It’s important to remember that as the owner, your job is to teach your puppy how to live in your environment. What is acceptable to chew and what’s not. Chewing on the wrong item can be dangerous to your dog. 
.
.

So next time your puppy picks up something, depending on the object, don’t be so fast to not deter them, just watch that they don’t choke or are able to hurt themselves buy allowing them time to figure the object out as they’re learning as they grow.

They eat how they want, sleep when they want, fart where they want and literally do what the fuck they want.
.
.

The moral to this is that we should be more like dogs. Live life without apologies going for ours. If you don’t know where you’re going any bus will take you there but when you do figure it out, there’s a bus that will take you too.
.
.

I pay attention to what and how dogs think, it’s amazing how much people don’t. Least today you now know that your dog doesn’t give two fuck’s about much but what’s for sure is that he loves you.

During the mid 19th century with the Industrial Revolution in full swing, middle class families began keeping domesticated dogs and cats as pets rather than dogs bred for working and/or a purpose.
.
.

Up to that point, the common households gave little consideration to the animals they owned. So a dogs diet consisted of whatever an owner could spare. Potatoes, bread, knuckle bones, cabbage or whatever leftovers they were.
.
.

Around 1860 a businessman by the name of James Spratt saw dogs being fed leftover biscuits from a ship and an idea was born. With a mix of wheat meals, vegetables, beetroot and beef blood the first commercially-prepared pet food was introduced to meet the new market demand of middle class families.
.
.

Using the current nutritional knowledge of the time period, around 1890 a British company took over Mr. Spratt’s formulas and productions sending the business overseas to the U.S. and the commercial dog food craze began to take shape.
.
.

Bet you didn’t know
.
.

A common meat source to purchase in the early 20th century was HORSE meat, as many working horses would die in the streets, instead of disposing the bodies, they were broken down for feed. Commercial canned dog food company “Ken-L Ration,” was introduced in 1922 and its main ingredient was horse meat, a acceptable ingredient source at the time.

Although these words ring true to the wonderful disposition of a dog, it is widely believed that William Shakespeare himself despised them.
.
.

He mentioned the word DOGS hundreds of times in many of his plays mostly using the word as a metaphor as when he coined the phrases “dog will have his day” or “Cry Havoc and let slip the dogs of war”
.
.

The impression from the numerous references Shakespeare made to dogs, is that, they were nothing but a nuisances in him. He believed dogs were dirty, dangerous, and not to be trusted even when they were being friendly. With partial exception of hound dogs that LORDS and ROYALS hunted with, he had very little use of dogs aside from utilizing them metaphorically in his writings.
.
.

Not much is known about Shakespeare’s private life, but some have said he suffered a mauling from a dog at some point or maybe he never had a positive interaction with dogs.
.
.

In the 16th and 17th centuries, Shakespearean England was known for its Gruesome Blood Sports involving animals. A popular sport was Bear Baiting, where a Bear is chained to his neck, de-clawed and dogs were let loose to attack and bring down the animal. It was believed that Queen Elizabeth I herself made appearances at the vicious spectacles. This cultural renaissance was spured on by the writings of Shakespeare.
