Ask yourself this question, how do you get your dog off leash…

Ask yourself this question, how do you get your dog off leash trained when for the first few weeks of the training class that you’ve enrolled in, spent weeks on sit, stay, come, down & heel (on a six foot leash) You then have this false sense of security and let your dog off the leash and he acts a fool, as he’s never been to a park nor has had weeks of training beforehand.
.
.
As you begin training towards off leash work, firstly you must make the decision that you’re going to go forward with the work to achieve off leash status and commit to it. While leash training is the foundation to achieving “off leash” in lots of ways it hinders most handlers as most people often and inadvertently use physical cues to control the dog while applying slight pressure on the leash to help the dog know what they want.
.
.
Every dog is different and the approach or as some may call (method) has to be adjusted to each but keeping it “simple, stupid” is the best approach. Start in your backyard just you and your dog using a ball, toy or food to motivate and keep his attention and as he gets used to going through a repertoire of off-leash skills move training inside where they’re is more going on for him to want to wander and play with. Continue the same approach as you did outdoors to keep him motivated and focused on you and as he gets more reliable working off leash, find a fenced in field to continue his growth in off leash work.
.
.
Sounds pretty easy right, but you have to remember two big and important components to achieving ultimate freedom. One is always I incorporate into all your daily activities off leash work even when you’re not doing structured training. Secondly build the best relationship you can with your pet where they always want to be with you and always give huge rewards for your dogs good behavior anytime you play, walk, feed, or just hang out. Blending these ideas along with training will take you a long way and can help finally achieve the off leash status you want.

There is overwhelming evidence that people who lead active lifestyles and are dog owners as well will less likely suffer from illness and more likely live longer.
.

In the dog world, exercising is viewed as a way to get a dog tired more than for their health sakes. As healthiness is important, keep in mind that dogs that exercise less run the risk of developing health issues with obesity, heart disease and arthritis to name a few.
.
.

What many dog owners don’t realize is that dogs that have little ways to exert their energy (exercise) can and will develop various behavioral issues. Lack of exercise and (freedom – indirectly) can result in boredom and frustration, developing into destructive patterns of behavior such as barking, aggression, digging or destroying of property.
.
.

This is what Cesar Milan’s preached all along, exercising leading to a better behaved dog. Their is truth in exercising helping to a better dog but only if it’s incorporated with proper training and every day “life skills routine”
.
.
Overall it is important to incorporate some type of exercise routine at least twice a week and routinely work on obedience patterns that a trainer has taught you if you went through any professional training. If you didn’t go the trainer route, many dog training books will have breakdowns of lessons to work on. On my next posting I will offer a few clients (in the LA area) a personal obedience pattern and exercise routine to help with their dogs, stay tuned.

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)

Dog trainers love to receive messages like this. It’s a reflection of our hard work to connect clients and their pets.
.
.

In this business it’s 50% training the dog and 50% training the owner. A good trainer will identify the behavior issues and where the dog is lacking and either teach or in some cases re-teach, so when the owner is reintroduced to the dog, the dog will be ahead in its learning curve but by only so much so that the owner can pick up on.
.
.
It’s no wonder why trainers feel this part of working with the client is most difficult yet in the end, most satisfying. For the trainer, it comes down to transferring what we know about the dog and simplifying so the owner can control their dog as well as the trainer can.
.
.
And when this is achieve correctly, it’s only then that the client will feel that they’ve received a return in their investment.

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.

Today, August 26th 2017 is #nationaldogday
.

In honor of today, I like to pay respect to one of my favorite puppy that I owned. This is Bugsy, she was often mistaken for a #pitbull (yes because of her ear cropped) but was an #americanbulldog out of Hammer/Casper.
.
.

She was featured in #daveputnam book #workingamericanbulldog where he spoke of my breeding program at the time (Undaground kennels) She was a great working dog like her father, high drive and well balanced but most importantly she was a goof ball always getting into trouble with my mom whom at the time I was still living with since I was only 17 or 18 years old at the time.
.
.

*Quick story; One rainy evening I took Bugsy out to relieve herself, leaving her alone for a few minutes. When I returned to the yard, I called for her several times only to see her come out the house. Realizing that I came out the same door, I said to her “where did you come from?” As we walked back towards the house she showed me where she was hiding as she had jumped back in the Dryer where she was laying in warm clothes. Needless to say I had to re-wash the garments before my mom found out, yet it made no difference since my mother found her in the dryer many, many times afterwards.

I made a list of Top Ten Guard Dog breeds a few months ago and have been regularly asked since then to make one of my Top Watch dogs. Because a watch dog can be ANY breed, it’s difficult to place a ranking on just 10 breeds. All of the dogs on my “guard” list can do the job of a Watchdog but there is a certain specific on what makes an ideal “watchdog”
.
.

My criteria was different from the guard dog list as it doesn’t entail a dog to bite in order to do it’s “guard” work successfully. In a watchdog although some will bite if pressured too, it’s not a prerequisite since most dogs that will be listed are smaller in stature. Let’s begin with the definition of what a watch dog is.
.
.

“A Watch Dog is a dog that keeps vigil of your property, alerting you of any potential intruder by barking incessantly letting you know someone is there”
.
.

The breeds on this list will focus on the independent and alert based dogs that the dog world has to offer. Size does not matter, as many dog owners of smaller breeds will attest that their dogs will hear or smell you before creeping up on them.
.
.

Lastly I will not touch much on the breeds specifics (history, health and descriptions) but state some information about their temperament and overall character and will place them in blocks of three (3) breeds in five (5) divisions with my last block of breeds as the best watchdogs for a home.

I got you fam, introducing the “ladle harness” and for a low price of $59.99, you can finally sleep in peace knowing your puppy won’t fit through the bars.
