ᴇᴅɪᴛᴏʀɪᴀʟ
.
.

In August 2000, the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) published their “Law Enforcement Canine Model Policy”. This was the first time in the history of police canine where a law enforcement association recommended a training philosophy of “bark and hold”. Their model policy stated “Training and deployment of police canines shall employ the “guard and bark” rather than the “guard and hold” method”. IACP has re-issued this model policy in September 2001. IACP still remains the only law enforcement association that has recommended this training philosophy.
.
.

The idea of the hold and bark has its importance in evaluating temperament and character of the dog in the areas of courage and fighting drives for a sport such as Schutzhund, but can be enforced for civilian use if more departments trained for it. The problem with law enforcement is that most Departments view it as “sport bullshit” and not viewed with enough importance, as their views are “if the perpetrator runs, he should get bit”
.
.

I can see how it can be scary for a criminal who is running from a dog to try to listen to the officers/handlers command to stop moving when a dog is upon them and it’s not always that easy for a dog to distinguish if a criminal is trying to stop in live action. Therefore its probably not going to happen in the majority of cases but if more departments enforce the rule and dogs are taught correctly then the chances of departments being sued can and should go down over time.

This is when you know you’re either dealing with a novice or a dumbass. This way of thinking is not uncommon, some people believe that a dog must be mean and aggressive to make a good protection dog. This idea is so far from the truth.
.
.

If a protection dog is there to protect you, then he should be there next to you the whole time, where ever you are, with whom ever you might be around whether that be humans, dogs, horses, it doesn’t matter.
.
.

Now if we were to think the way some of those people believe then your protection dog wouldn’t be there to protect you. He’ll be too aggressive to handle and would growl and try to bite anyone that is around you. Human, dog, horse, you get it. In a nutshell you’ll have to kennel him.
.
.

So this deceives the point of raising and training a dog in that manner. I felt sorry for the pup as he was a friendly little guy. I’ll write up a better explanation in the coming post. In the meantime your thoughts and comments on this would be much appreciated….

What four lines can tell us about soundness in conformation
.
.

Properly using the Four Lines of Balance requires observing a dog in person or using a photo of the dog in the correct position. Either mentally or actually drawing lines in a photo to recreate the four lines of balance.
.
.

The first illustration is a young American Pit Bull Terrier in the correct position to be examined. His hocks and front legs are perpendicular to the ground and the photo is straight from the side, level with the dog not looking down on it.
.
.

The first line is Line “A” line drawn on the dog’s top line. If you aren’t sure exactly where the dog’s top line begins, draw the line beginning past the head, beginning from its shoulder. The dog’s entire head must be above this line when held in a natural position.
.
.

Line “B” is the single most important line. This line starts at the dog’s pro-sternum and runs directly back past the end of the dog’s body. The pro-sternum is that pointy lump on the front of the dog’s chest. The pro-sternum almost always indicates the position of the dog’s point of shoulder. It is common for the pro-sternum line to be placed far too low on the dog’s body, so be aware of placing so the line divides the dog in a perfect half and balance.
.
.

For Line “C” imagine a line dropped from the dog’s point of rear to the ground. With the dog’s hocks absolutely perpendicular to the ground, the line should drop to the front of the dog’s rear toes.
.
.

Line “D” is drawn up the front leg of the dog, with the legs perpendicular to the ground. The balanced dog will have its entire neck in front of this line.

People and dogs share a bond unlike no other in the animal kingdom, having over thousands of years developing an ability to pick up on our body and facial cues, seemingly knowing what we’re gonna do next.
.
.

Although we share a mutually beneficial relationship, their most important characteristics is loyalty.
This idea of loyalty in dogs is embodied in this quote by Mark Twain.
.
.

Dogs need us plain and simple. We shelter them, feed them, give them love and attention but in return they repay us with the utmost loyalty. Take the time to read the quote a few more times and let it sink in, ME: I’d rather have 1 good dog versus 100 half as friends.
