Recently a 7 month miniature pincher was brought for evaluation. My client was told by the couple whom they adopted the dog from that he was found in the street wondering with his mother and that was all they knew. Initially when brought home he was quiet and shy but within days he became comfortable and began showing signs of aggression.

.

.

Upon evaluating the dog, I guesstimated he was older than previously believed (15 months) with a Veterinarian guessing the same. After the first week, the dog was still shy, easily agitated when corrected and exhibited dog aggression.

.

.

After my evaluation I pressed my client to see if they can get more information and to let the couple know he was much older than they had said. After much pressing, the couple had agreed that they withheld information on the dog and the story given was not all true.

.

.

The couple stated they felt bad that they did not raise the dog properly and that he had gotten out of hand, and simply wanted to find him a better home. They agreed to never properly socializing the dog and didn’t have the means to pay for training. Their idea of socializing was bringing the dog around other dogs to see but he was so aggressive that they just took him home. When they had guest over, the dog would begin to bark and even bit someone that they just put him in a room without ever correcting the behavior.

.
.

This is a classic story of the quote above, both socializing and training go hand and hand but lacking in one department will only lead to failure in all. Getting a dog requires an investment of patience and time with sometimes having to pay for service to help remedy the situation. For those seeking help, there are avenues to explore but you have to do some research in finding help. I personally help my clients giving deep discounts to those that truly don’t have the means and need help and are willing to do the work to get their dogs trained and socialized.

I’ve been blessed to have owned and/or trained every dog breed I’ve ever wanted to. The French Mastiff or #doguedebordeaux was one of my favorites breeds to own. I had two (2) males that were athletic as any big dog and also excelled in bite work – Reno and Slob. I’ve yet to see one in 30 years that would actually work as hard as the ones I owned.
.
.

I must add that owning these majestic dog breeds has only helped me better understand the differences of behavior from breed to breed as well as gain an overall knowledge in dealing with each one with the respect that comes with ownership of the different breeds.
.
.

#throwbackthursday share any interesting stories of your dogs, here is mine….
.
.

I noticed bags of dog food would be raided and slobbered by one of the dogs but I couldn’t figure out which would do it since they were all in kennels. One day I looked out the window and noticed Reno popping his gate open, go into the bag of food, eat a few large gulps of dog food then retreat back into his kennel, all the while closing the latch behind him. Smh this guy was too clever for his own self.

In the dog world, it’s called TRAINING your dog to do a habit “over and over again, correctly” but I like the term “CONDITION” to do so on an everyday basis without skipping a beat.

.

.

One of the reasons I was brought out to Prague was to continue the CONDITIONING that Judah has at home and establish the same in another place, this time in another country.

.

.

Judah has acclimated very quickly and for those that will say, “that litter box is too small” we have already ordered a larger box with a reservoir for the rainy/snowy months ahead.

Your dog can never be too old or too young to start training (within reason). Same can be said for a person, (again, within reason) Everyone must be involved, if they want their dog to listen.
.
.
Obviously aside from teaching a child RESPONSIBILITY, like having to remember to feed, provide fresh water, and to clean up after their dog. A relationship that develops can be life-changing for a child as they themselves continue to grow and develop.
.
.
When training a dog, I press to my clients how important PATIENCE is to teach their dogs. In turn, dogs teach children patience as a dog can be frustrating. Puppies like to nip and chew, scratch, jump and slobber while getting to children’s toys and destroying them as it’s theirs. Patience teaches children restrain all the while to teach without yelling and/or hitting a dog.
.
.
What I know for sure is that dogs teach children COMPASSION, understanding the feeling of emotions and pain. As dogs have short lives, and a child would more than likely be there for their dogs entire life cycle, a lesson however hard it may be is an invaluable lesson for a child as they comfort their dog and cope with their loss.
.
.
And most importantly how much FUN they will have with their best friend and pet by all the interaction they’ll have throughout their lifetime. From dressing them up, to taking them for walks. Spending time training and playing fetch. Your dog is always their through good and bad days as they’re always there to cheer you up.

Training with me doesn’t always have to be “walking in the middle of a park and making your dog do sit and heel commands” it comes down to learning how to communicate with your pet.
.
.
Anyone who’s worked with me knows that I try to explain every step of the way:
.
.
what your dog is doing
.
.
why he’s doing it
.
.
and what’s he going to do next.
.
.
A more educated client is a better client. A client that knows his dog, how to read his dog and who’s connected with his dog will make a better owner and friend for his pet.
.
.
Those of you who’s trained with me, share with others how you’ve learned about your dog and what I’m talking about down below 👇🏽

Obedience training should be fun and to the point. Yesterday’s lesson consisted of working Zulu and Dräco together for the first time. After weeks of individual workouts and conditioning of new deportments I was able to put two (2) clients dogs, both 6months old to work together.

Procrastinating your dogs education is the grave for where your dogs opportunities are buried.

What do you see in this picture?

.
.

What I see are children and a dog that technically are all of about the same age. Now you may be asking yourself, how so? Children ages 5 and 6, the dog, 4 months.

.
.

What I’m getting at is that humans will take years to become productive adults whereas a dog, in only a year it can become one. Take the time to train your dog while it’s young, in the case of Zulu where he’ll be 100 plus pounds, do it before he trains you!

Humans do a fantastic job at making things more complicated than it should be. Ownership of a dog should not be stressful.

.

Invest the time to find a good trainer and do your part. Start young, be committed and have fun. Mistakes will happen, but learn from them instead of fretting from them.

This mornings lesson gave me the inspiration for this post. Your dog will give you “teachable” lessons everyday. It is best to pay attention follow through on them.

.
.

In today’s lesson, the dog keyed into a situation as if he was going to react but his owner didn’t correct him. In these moments it is best to correct your dog, even after the fact. A dog would understand why it is being corrected despite catching them after the fact.

.
.

Next time you find yourself with your dog, identify the teachable moments and correct them. Your dog will understand and you’ll appreciate it when he gets it.
