As a child someone taught us how to brush our teeth, taught us out ABC’s and 123’s, drive a car, those simple things that sometimes we take for granted, play a role in our lives today.
.
.

It is no different for our dogs. We can’t expect them to understand what a SIT command is or to remember go outside and poop when it’s time if it’s never taught to them.
.
.

Dogs need to be taught everything that is expected of them. If you want your dog to be calm and respectful, then you must teach them so. If you want a great obedient dog then you must teach them to be.
.
.

Consistency and structure will help lead your dog to becoming a part of your family unit. Ignoring either will only set you back and continue to perpetuate behavioral issues.

The forgotten bulldog, the “Tommy of Goodfellas” (Joe Pesci character) is the Staffordshire Bull terrier which in my opinion is the one breed that can shine in the show ring, yet adept to jump into a pit and wreck some sh!t.

.

In a future post, I’ll write about these gritty little guys but in the meantime swipe left to see some other Staffy’s. Also if there is a breed you’d like my opinion of, shoot me a comment telling me which one you’d like to see.

There’s lesson(s) to be learned if we’d only be “more like dogs”

.

.

Dogs don’t judge nor do they criticize, loyalty isn’t just a hashtag and they’re always happy to see you. Material things are something to chew on, they’re always down for whatever is going on. A dog will always take the initiative when it comes to spilled food, are amazing listeners and unlike people they’ll decrease your blood pressure.

I don’t know the year this picture was taken but it caught my attention. It’s safe to say early 1900’s? What’s important to note is that this picture was most likely taken during a time that some of the greatest fighting dogs that lived were around, bred by “bulldoggers” that kept to themselves and hardly would have dealt with anyone from the public.

.

.

What is known about “old timers” is they hardly bred nor studded their dogs for money, nor did they sell to the general public. They shared or traded dogs with each other since to them this was a competition of sorts, a sport where dogs were the players that they loved and respected, the same way we cherish our pets today.

.

.

I know this may sound foreign to those that view “dog fighting” as cruel and inhumane but it was a part of history, American Pit Bull terrier history that is today a marker of the breed. I’m in no way perpetuating dog fighting, but relaying to the reader that at one time this breed held the respect of everyone from politicians to presidents to celebrities and the general public.

.

.

What has changed are the people who own the breed and the media circus whom perpetuates a despise of them. I’d rather not use cliches but make things clear for those that don’t understand, “educate yourself before your discriminate”

.

.

With all that said, this picture features several dogs with handlers holding them side by side and obviously the dogs are not bothered by the presence of the other dog. I may catch some flak for this post but I don’t care, it’s how I feel and love and respect the breed through good and bad times.

We as a society love to stereotype. When it comes to the “BULL BREEDS” the media has been known to exacerbate the issues and fill the news with negativity due to their lack of education on the breeds and dogs in general, furthering distorting the public’s perception and conscience…

While cases of aggression in the BULL BREEDS does happen, they’re usually connected to other issues and again judged unfairly due to the negative reporting. A study performed in the journal of Applied Animal Behavior Science (2008) provided scientific data on what breeds are statistically more aggressive than others. Researchers from the University of Pennsylvania studied 6,000 dog owners of 33 different breeds and found that the DACHSHUND was most often the more aggressive dog breed when compared to other breeds, even to many of the BULL BREEDS…

The results of the study found:
“1 in 5 Dachshunds have bitten or had tried to bite a stranger and a similar number have attacked other dogs while 1 in 12 have snapped at their owners.” . .

Guess who’s number two on the list with similar data numbers, the tiny Chihuahua with their huge ego with the JACK RUSSELL TERRIER coming in third…

As for the stereotypical breeds, the results for those were average or below average when it came to aggression with the study focusing more on dogs that were aggressive towards strangers, owners and other dogs. In general, they all scored lower than the top three breeds
across the board…

As for my experience I’ve run across dogs of all breeds that have aggression issues including the BULL BREED and can attest to the snippy killer Dachshund attitude. I am not surprised by the results. Next time you come across a wiener dog, let’s hope you don’t run into a frankenweenie.

Living in the moment, easy to say, hard to do but not for a dog. A dog senses time different versus humans as they live in the moment, without thoughts of the past or future. Brooding about our past or future can take away from our happiness, something a dog will not suffer from.

.

.

Although dogs remember people, lessons learned (commands) and impactful events such as the death of a family member (dogs and humans) they’re resilient and will eventually find their rhythm and be back living in the moment.

.

.

Living in the moment like our pets can help us enjoy life more fully as we shouldn’t impede our chances of being happy by fretting about the past or worrying about a future that has yet to happen. Like our dogs, we would be better off if we were to learn to engage in this practice of living in the moment.

Is aggression a learned behavior or genetics? In humans, studies have determined that aggression is a learned behavior but what about in dogs?

.

.

Many dog behaviorist believe that aggression is a taught behavior from us to them, that dogs aren’t born that way, they’re raised to be so. Here’s their argument: a puppy growls at another dog, people would often overlook and say “he’s a puppy” and without thinking PRAISE the behavior and from that point on, aggression is instantaneously OK’d in a dogs mind.

.

.

This is often called an Operant behavior, aggressive behavior is Operant behavior. Operant: a behavior that is initially spontaneous, rather than a response to a stimulus, consequences reinforces the recurrence of that behavior.

.

.

Although this is how dog aggression begins I lean with the theory that genetics plays more of a role that behaviorist want to believe. Dog fighting breeds genetically will show aggression towards other dogs whether or not someone is perpetuating it, in the end it comes down to the individual dog.

.

.

What are your thoughts, is your dog too aggressive to be around people and other dogs?
