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.

One of the difficult things about being an actor is sometimes the job can uproot you and take you anywhere and although it’s a blessing to be able to travel the world for work it sometimes leaves at home responsibilities and life randomly in limbo. Anyone who knows me knows Judah and I are attached at the hip so when #whiskeycavalier announced we were shooting in Prague my first thought was “What about the baby?” Anyone with a bulldog knows traveling with them can be very difficult for a number of reasons. So I called up my man @stevethedogtrainer asked for some help and he agreed to travel with Judah AND help get him adjusted internationally. Got so much love for this guy right here and the work he does. He’s been in Judah and my life since the day we came together and has been committed to the pups health and happiness ever since. Please go check out his page for ANY of your dog needs, breed knowledge, and training tips 🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽 #frenchbulldog #frenchiesofinstagram

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.

The worlds changing around us, or has it alway…

The worlds changing around us, or has it always been the same laying in wait til the right moment to show its ugly head. Every level of our society has been adding to the lack of humanity, from the president to school yard bullies.

.
.

We’re seeing the decline of simple and kind acts from everyday people. When we see it and don’t do or say anything about it only adds to the fact that YOU TOO are allowing it to happen as you are humanity as well. We can only be responsible for ourselves in what we put out into the planet so pointing fingers and blaming others only rids yourself of responsibilities.

.
.

It’s easy to point fingers to who’s contributing to humanities downfall on earth and it’s easier to blame them for all but we (ourselves) have to own up to our responsibilities and change the way we do and act, when you know better you do better.

.
.

In the end change begins with you, if you can’t stand the culture we see around us then stop consuming it. If you don’t like something, then change it. No one but yourself can tell you to be compassionate, loving and kind to anyone, only you have that choice. If someone is rude or nasty, be the bigger person and move on.
Stop giving other people your power and be the change you want to see.

.
.

I wrote this because of all the stuff going on in today’s world but also because of what I posted yesterday of the little bully who was killed inhumanely. I don’t understand and want to know anyone that is that treacherous. Hope they find that asshole.

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.

Obviously this isn’t a “Sled Dog” but posting this video sent to me by @dieselthebeauceron with his Hoo-man. I’ve yet to meet him as he resides in Idaho but will be doing so real soon.

.
.

The point id like to make is Diesel’s owners has trained a dog with me before and applying the knowledge that they’ve learned from their past dog has allowed them to raise him well.

.

.

Of course he’s a different dog, breed and temperament that will eventually need more training but when you have an understanding of foundation training, your dog has great chance of becoming the dog you want him to be.

The majority of dogs have the ability to learn, it’s essential to their growth. They also have a capacity to retain information far greater than humans believe, but it’s their willingness to learn which makes them unlike other animals in the kingdom.

.
.

Train your dog, it’s worth it in the end and read a book. Any book people need to read more books.
