This breed is considered the last Coursing Mastiff of recent times. Although an old breed in its native country, it has become popular rather quickly around the world, especially the States.

For bonus points, in the picture this dog exhibits a key physical feature that is telling of the time the dog comes from and it’s purpose on the field. Can anyone guess?

The debate will rage on of the true origin of the #Mastiff breed. Their will also be those that don’t agree on what colors are acceptable. This MASTIFF doesn’t usually come in the color above but some devotees of the breed might differ.

Name the breed…..

Received a call from a client visiting South Africa whom enthusiastically raved about a breed he swore I never heard of and that he was trying to figure out how to get a puppy back to the states cause it was the coolest, biggest dog he’s ever seen.
.
.

Reminded me of a similar call I received about 15 years or so ago about the same breed from another guy visiting South Africa who wanted to bring a pup in cause he swore I never heard of it either.
.
.

As I sat there listening to my client talk I was recollecting the words I imparted to my last client about bringing home a breed of dog that doesn’t fit their lifestyle and in my opinion is simply too much dog for them.
.
.

All these “Rare Breeds” are a sight to see and own but they aren’t for everybody. We all have a breed we like and possibly dreamed of owning since childhood but are they for you?
.
.

Before zoning into a certain breed, do your research and make sure if it’s compatible for your lifestyle and future family. The breed I’m speaking about is the Boerboel, in the coming post I’ll post a picture of my dog.

We’ve finally begun the ground work with Rocky…

We’ve finally begun the ground work with Rocky and I’m pretty happy with his obedience, which will only get better since we’re introducing bite work.
.
.

Every dog is different in its learning curve and the drives toward protection work varies as well. Some dogs are what we call “prey monsters” in that they like to chase and grab anything thrown at them. Then they’re dogs like Rocky, which are more “Defensive” minded. A little antagonizing can go a long way.
.
.

They end results can be the same whichever way you take to reach the goal, only thing is the latter (defense) can produce a more aggressive type dog if not trained right from the beginning.
.
.

Don’t just let anyone tell you it’s easy to train dogs for bite work, it literally is an Art form in terms of teaching, building, creating and the final product. It can be dangerous to both the handler and trainer as well as for the public if a dog is not trained properly. The key to “protection training” is making it a game and having fun with your dog. A dog should never view bite work training as a chore, but as something fun and to look after. If they take it too serious, then you’re in for some serious problems in the end.

As a dog trainer on some days I walk miles on end, and for that “MY DOGS BE BARKIN” (swipe left for the definition) so I have to take care of my feet.
.

I’m pretty sure I’m one of the few if not the only dog trainer up on IG talking about his feet and using a dog term to describe them 😂🤦🏻‍♂️

Shout out to my manicurist Kelly over at Angel Nail salon for taking her time to work them ingrown’s out.

Scooby Doo and Marmaduke are both Great Danes,…

Scooby Doo and Marmaduke are both Great Danes, but are they really?
.
.

The name “Great Dane” was given by the French naturalist Comte de Buffon. History tells us during his travels in Denmark, he came upon a breed and saw a big but lightly built Boar Hound (early Dane like dogs) which resembled a Greyhound and remarked that “the Danish climate had caused the Greyhound to become the Grand Danois (Great Dane)” shortly thereafter the dogs became known as the Great Danish Dog err Great Dane.
.
.

The real Great Dane is the Broholmer, a true big Mastiff type dog from Denmark. A large yet agile dog with some weighing upwards to 150lbs. The breed is very rare outside of Denmark with only about 1200 totaling the world and 250 outside of its native country.
.
.

Broholmer’s were once hugely popular in Denmark and was well-known for its versatility. The Broholmer was a prized possession, used by Danish nobility as a guard dog and as a hunting dog of large animals (deer, boar, etc) as well as by farmers as a farmhand who would assist in the handling of uncooperative pigs and bulls. The breed were highly respected that Broholmers were often given as a gift by royalty and aristocrats to their peers in Europe.
.
.

A generally mild tempered and a highly social dog, the breed may seem intimidating but a conscious effort has been placed by the few dedicated breeders in its community to produce a calmer, gentler animal than what was once need many years ago.
.
.

In the early 1500s, King Frederick II posed for a painting with the breed, while in the 1700s, King Frederick VII and Countess Danner owned several Broholmers (many of which they gave the same name: Tyrk). This link to the monarchy has guaranteed the breed as a whole a very regal standing in history.
.
.

So for those discriminating few that want something very few people outside Europe owns, check out the Broholmer.

Reading is important, gaining knowledge in the field you’re in will only help better you. With the age of the internet, books became obsolete but educating yourself came to your fingertips, but books are making a comeback.

On that note, use that computer of yours to log onto Amazon and buy this book for your reading pleasure. YES I wrote it, help a brother pay some bills around here.
