Dogs don’t understand human created languages but words or rather sounds of those languages. After hearing the word/sound “sit” many times, a dog will eventually associate it with a behavior.
.
.
An average dog identifies 150 or so words by association with some dogs learning 250 or more. A Border Collie named Chaser takes the cake, it is reported that he knows the distinct names of 1022 objects including 800 different dog toys.
.
.
In multi-cultural homes, dogs are becoming multi-linguistic. Learning an object such as “treat” can be said in different languages yielding the same result.

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!

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.

You can purchase a solid door, the best locks, bullet proof windows and even an alarm but nothing beats owning a dog as the best deterrent that money can buy. Speak to the majority of law enforcement officers and you’ll hear that a home with a dog is less likely be burglarized.
.
.
Why is that? It’s the one intangible that a criminal has little answers to dealing with. They can pick locks, break doors, climb buildings but once encountered by a dog that has been properly trained to protect and commit, then the odds are in you’re favor.
.
.
But before you get excited and go out and purchase a dog, read the rest of this post. “If a dog has never seen it, chances are he wouldn’t know how to deal with it” My clients have heard me say this time and again, but what exactly do I mean?
.
.
A dog is acquired for the purpose to protect, breeds such as Rottweilers and German Shepherd are usually thought of because of their rich history of being a legitimate guard dog. Yet simply purchasing a “guard dog” isn’t going to solve your protection needs.
.
.
So let’s go back to my quote, “if a dog has never seen it, chances are he wouldn’t know how to deal with it” The majority of dogs that has never been formally trained does not know how to handle a legitimate situation such as a break-in or home invasion robbery because “he’s never seen nor experienced an episode as such” and wouldn’t know exactly what to do.
.
.

A little known instinct would kick in “fight or flight” and if given a chance to run the dog will do so. Now they’re is always the exception to the rule but in my experience I’ve dealt with many dogs choosing the flight versus the fight.
.
.

This is what you should know about a “home protection dog” This is not a guard dog, as a guard dog is a dog that is placed in an area to guard and this is not a personal protection dog, a dog trained to protect your personal similar to a K9 police dog A home protection dog is for the purpose of defending ones home. He is a dog that is loyal to its family and household and is fairly obedient as well as social.

If you are ever in the market for a dog as such, don’t just trust the words of the breeder as his job other than finding a good home for this puppy is to sell you the goods and that usually goes with telling you what you want to hear. Some formal training is needed to fully have confidence that your dog will do the job if your ever in that predicament. A police dog isn’t one cause the breeder bred him to be that, as a dog for the blind isn’t one also because of the breeder. It takes training to achieve that, a reputable breeder will put the genetics together but it takes training to get the results.

What do these signs mean to you? If you own a dog you’ve acquired to protect your home, the correct signage can protect you and your dog from a potential law suit.
Ever heard the phrase “think before you speak” the wording and how its perceived in a signage is just as important.
Take for instance the top sign states “Beware of Dog” while the bottom one says “Dogs on premises” They both are meant to warn people to stay out of your yard and property but one of them can be hurtful in an event you are ever in a legal battle. “Beware of Dog” is telling someone that “I have a dog in my property and he will bite if you step onto said property” While the “Dogs on Premises” is stating “there are dogs on my property, I’m not alluding to either they’re aggressive nor passive, simply stating that I have dogs”
The simple play on words can help you in the event that someone does get bit on your property (if they’re breaking and entering)

I found this picture of myself and probably the best dog I’ve had the privilege of working, Jaws of Stone Predator. This pic was taken around ‘91 or ’92 at the Western Regionals. I was 16 years old, decoying a sanctioned DVG’s Schutzhund regionals trial.
.

In the past 20 years the American Bulldog has seen an explosion of owners and breeders that have taken the baton of what we started 25 plus years ago and has done wonderful things with them especially in the performance world.
.
.

Just a bit of history and facts: Predator (pictured) was the first AB titled in the sport of Schutzhund. His son Ike was the second, my dog Hammer third and Niko another Predator son was forth. Swipe left and you’ll see the dogs in that order) The very first AB’s ever tested for Hip Dysplasia through OFA were those dogs listed. In fact at the time, OFA (Orthopedic Foundation for Animals) had never rated an x-ray of an AB and had to use Rottweilers as a comparison to rate the dogs hips against one another.
.
.

It is safe to say that at the time we were the only performance HOT (Handler, Owner, Trainers) of the AB’s and I’m damn proud of that. How many people can say that they were a part of making history, on that note I’ll end with a saying that was common with AB breeders back then.
