HOW TO APPROACH DOGS. Dogs are more scared of you than you of him. Always remember a dog might mistake anything you do for a threat.

.

.

You’ve met a dog in the neighborhood, how do you know if he’s friendly? You’ll know from his body language. A wagging tail, sniffing nose his head and body swaying back and forth, a possible high pitch bark and a happy disposition.

.

.

Exercise caution when dealing with strange dogs, here’s a few things you should know. If a dog seems unapproachable, try to make the dog feel comfortable by talking softly. No fast or sharp movements, moving slowly always keeping the dog in front of you. Approach dogs side ways, not straight facing which can be intimidating. Never get on your knees if you don’t know the dog. Patience is key to making a dog feel comfortable, be respectful showing confidence but don’t look a directly into a dogs eyes as they may view it as a threat. Ball your hand into a fist and stretch out toward him, giving him a chance to reach you.

.

.

This is less threatening and lessens the chance of your fingers being bitten than an open hand. Allow the dog to sniff your hand remaining motionless. Let him take the time he needs to sniff you, it’s important to build confidence. Give the dog time to finish, slowly moving your hand to try to scratch or pet gently watching for a reaction. Some dogs don’t like when they can’t see your hands, so pat the side of his head instead. At this point he either likes you or don’t. If the dog decides not to approach or is uncomfortable, watch their body language as most dogs give plenty of warning of being threaten (growling, snarling, ears rolled backed, hackles raised, tail tucked between legs, stiffness) If signs of fear/threat are apparent leave him alone. If he seems curious and calm and not exhibiting the warning signs, you’re making progress but move slowly while remaining calm. In time you’ll be able to befriend him.

What is hydrocephalus in dogs?
There are two types of hydrocephalus in dogs: congenital which is present at birth and acquired.

.
.

Congenital hydrocephalus is a birth defect most often associated with a dome-shaped skull sometimes referred to as “water head” or “apple head” (chihuahua’s with round, smushed faces are often called the same) Clinical signs (symptoms) associated with congenital hydrocephalus include abnormal or spastic walking, changes in behavior, circling or falling over on one side, and failure to housetrain or learn basic commands. Dogs may not show any symptoms when very young.

.
.

Acquired hydrocephalus develops when the flow of CSF is blocked or altered by infection, tumor, or swelling. The most common cause of acquired hydrocephalus is a brain tumor. Clinical signs are similar to those of congenital hydrocephalus and include changes in behavior or training, circling, head pressing (a term used for pressing of the head up against a wall or other structure), listlessness, loss of vision, pacing, restlessness, and seizures.    

.
.

Brachycephalic breeds (smushed faces dogs) such as English and French Bulldogs as well as Boston terriers and Pekingese, would fall into this category. Most small, toy and miniature breeds pushed for conformation are likely to be affected by Hydrocephalus.

.
.

Clinical signs consistent with hydrocephalus are usually all that is CT and MRI scans can also diagnose and give a definitive diagnosis. needed to make a presumptive diagnosis.

.
.

If caught early, hydrocephalus would be treated with corticosteroids to reduce CSF production and inflammation. In severe or chronic cases, anti-seizure medications will also be needed. Surgery to place a tube that runs from the open spaces in the brain to the abdomen (ventriculoperitoneal shunt) can be performed at some veterinary teaching or specialty hospitals. Success rates as high as 80% are reported in cases treated early.

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.

As a trainer, one wants to help the client “train” what behavioral issue they face with their dog, solve them and we’re all happy.

.
.

It is when they take what they’ve learn to levels that compare to those that have been “training” for years and make it look easy. @jager_the_malinois and Terry has come a long way and I’m truly proud of my friend and his quest to title Jaeger to his SCH title.

Here is a clip of where he’s at which his obedience, I will keep everyone posted when we’re ready to trial him which is coming up real soon. Enjoy the video and as always, your comments are welcome.

Dogs are a product of the environment we create, what we teach them and how we treat them. Unfortunately many pet owners have no idea that they’re the teachers more so than an owner. People want to make their dogs more of a friend, but with the dog gaining all the benefits.
.
.

As much as a dogs craves affection, they need direction. Rules and Laws are in place to keep order, to be held accountable. When rules are properly in place your dog knows what they can and can’t do. This is a simple fundamental that is often overlooked.

.
.

Set rules and follow through. Enroll into obedience training program. Continually work on socialization. Make sure to upkeep a proper environment instilling a clean quarters living behavior.

.
.

Following through on these four (4) principles will positively impact the way your dog thinks and acts.
