The POODLE haircut is synonymous with the breed and can be traced back to early 17th century Germany. POODLES were bred to serve as WATER DOGS, retrievers to be exact.
.
.

PUDELN in GERMAN means to Splash (root word in English: Puddle) so the name POODLE is derived from the GERMAN word “PUDEL” or short for PUDELHUND which translates to WATER DOG. It was widely believed during the era that the POODLE needed a certain haircut, that an unshaven dog would be too heavy and would weigh them down while swimming.
.
.

The POODLE cut was born. The thick mane of hair kept around the chest was left to keep the POODLES vital organs warm in the cold water while the bottom half of its body was shaven believing the dog would be more buoyant and swim faster and freely. Shaving around its face, especially the mouth and eyes were so it could fulfill its retriever duties.
.
.

The two areas of a POODLE cut that receives the most attention were the hair around its paws, the thought was hair around the joint protected them from the cold and possible injuries while helping prevent rheumatism while acting as “floaties” and tying the hair on their heads into a “top knot” would keep the hair out of the dogs eyes. What was common with this, owners would tie knots with different colored ribbons to help identify their dogs from afar.

A dog who is enabled, spoiled and allowed to get away with things are often the product of an owner that allows their pet to much comfort. With videos, books, trainers and that friend that knows everything about dogs, one should be able to at least get their pooch under control.
.
.

Placing your dog on a schedule, training, modifying its behavior and setting rules you wish for it to follow, that living within a family environment is a privilege will help your dog learn to appreciate who you are as an owner. Staying consistent within the rules and following through with what you mean, you will present to your dog that you’re boss. In the end you’ll gain their respect as they fall in line to become the pet you wished for.

Prior to 1988 the CANE CORSO was non-existent in America. By 2014, it ranked 47th according to AKC registrations. On this list the CANE is the first GUARD DOG to exhibit a balanced ratio of DEFENSIVE & PREY drives.
.
.

At an average of 110lbs the CANE (pronounced ka-nee) is smaller than most MASTIFF. In recent years, 140+lbs dogs are becoming common, as long as their bred physically sound with a great temperament. Luckily for the breed, their are many dedicated enthusiasts that are focusing on working dogs rather than the show world.
.
.

The CANE CORSO is considered the only “Coursing” MASTIFF in the dog kingdom. Coursing; a sport of hunting game animals such as hares or larger game with sight rather than scent. There some debate over their history but that’s for another post. Overall this original idea of the breed contributed to a higher prey drive and athleticism.
.
.

The CANE excels as a personal protection and sport dog. Their high aptitude and athleticism is a potent combination and as mentioned in the beginning, the breed exhibits a balance of PREY and DEFENSE drives with the latter being useful for GUARD DOG duties. In a home setting, the CORSO is always “Johnny on the spot” and with some formal training, this breed excels as a guardian.
.
.

A loyal and docile dog around family settings, the breed can be stubborn and do enjoy their alone time (A plus for guard dog duties) with this lending to a moody and temperamental dog at times. When around small children and other small dogs, supervision is advised.
.
.

Some defaults: Hip & Elbow dysplasia, skin issues such a demodectic mange and gastric torsion (stomach bloat) otherwise the breed is a hardy dog with an average span of 9 – 12 years.

There is a distinct difference between a dog I train for protection and having someone else train your dog.
.
.
If an intruder enters your house, the dog trained by someone else will bark to let you know someone’s there.
.
.
If your dog is trained by me, you’ll won’t hear a bark, because you’ll hear the intruder yelling for help.
.
.
28 years of experience training dogs so I can hear the bad guy yell. That’s real conversation for yo ass!

There are differences between breeds, then differences between individual dogs of the same breed. The one fundamental skill that’s required by creditable breeders and show judges alike is understanding breed history, function and purpose.
.

Working dogs such as the one pictured above must possess power, speed and agility to serve its purpose. So length of body and legs as is on this “working bull terrier” is important to adequately do the job it’s intended to do.

It’s always refreshing to see dogs still serving a purpose for mankind. A few things I’d like to point out in this short video.
.
.
First notice how blended in the dog is to the sheep. See how calm the dog is around them and how he compares to their size. Lastly, how well behaved he is to his handler.
.
.
These four points are important in LGD (Livestock Guardian Dogs) as their main purpose is to protect the livestock from predatory animals that are searching for an easy meal. A dog lacking in any of these points can be a liability to its purpose.

It would be a dishonesty to say all humans are insensitive to the pain of animals. Animals do not speak our language nor do we speak there’s so it’s understandable that we may have a communication gap but in a situation like this, there is simply no excuse. Even if you were blind, deaf and mute, you can communicate and know that this isn’t right.
.

This dog was tethered to a collar that he out grew and it festered to this point. In today’s world we live in, people are truly showing their true colors.
