My series of Working dogs we hardly hear or talk about.
.
.

The men who developed the Airedale didn’t come from Aristocracy or weren’t Gentlemen of the sporting dog world but everyday Working Class people. They were mostly farmers and hunters living near the Ayre (Aire) and Wharfe Rivers near Yorkshire, England.
.
.

Around 1860’s in that region of England a “do everything” type dog was needed that could control vermin as well as bring in birds for the table. A dog with the courage to stay in the fight and protect, a dog of high character, surely a weather resistant coat, not to mention exemplary hunting instincts and the gentleness to be a family dog. Strong swimming attributes as well as being an efficient bird dog was also on the list of needs.
.
.

An assortment of breeds contributed to the creation of the AIREDALE. As was common in those days, many breeds were mixed that had the attributes needed for the dog to be fulfilled. It is believed the now extinct Black and Tan terrier, Otterhound, Broken-Coated Terrier and English Bull terrier contributed towards the creation of the breed with other Terrier breeds which may or may not have been mixed in. The end product first become known as the Waterside Terrier, then the Bingley Terrier, and finally by 1879 the Airedale terrier.
.
.

Dog writer Holland Buckley wrote a book called “The Airedale Terrier” (c. 1900), in which he stated “he [the Airedale] is a three-in-one gun dog combining the virtues of the pointer, spaniel and retriever.” Alas the breed was finally considered a Sporting Dog where it’s popularity in North America grew quickly becoming the most popular breed in the United States between the 1920’s and 30’s.
.
.

The breeds popularity waned for years after due to many factors, one of which is the choices of other working breeds. In the past 30 plus years, Airedale fanciers has successfully restored the breeds versatility as a hunting dog and one of purpose.

The calm before the storm….

Stella (4 month old) is the forth (4th) dog I’ve trained for this client. Already started foundation bite work, obedience and of course she’s housebroken while we waited for her ears to heal. We’re 2 months into training…..
.

It all comes down to setting a plan and following through.

Team work: a principal point when it comes to a dog and his owner. The human is the point and the dog is the partner. When I first met Ozzie after evaluating him I realized what his issues were. I was surprised at how much better than I initially thought his obedience was but there was a bigger issues looming. He had been through several other trainers before coming to me and so I was bemused to see that they didn’t identify it either.
.
.

The issue I noticed was that Ozzie and his owner wasn’t a cohesive team which is one of the key principals to dog training. I’ll explain and give an example. What is an AUTOMATIC SIT? When walking with your dog and when you come to a STOP, your dog should automatically SIT on every stop!
.
.

Here’s the thing, when in a walk you stop 10 times and your dog only comes to a sit on 5 of those occasions and the other 5 times he doesn’t sit but you don’t correct timely or at all, what your dog will not be doing is an AUTOMATIC SIT. When you’re not consistent and connected with your dog, listening and following through is not what he’s going to do. It’s as if Ozzie is a gambler and is willing to gamble the odds of his owner correcting him on every time he doesn’t SIT on a stop.
.
.

So back to Ozzie, I’m working with his owner to understand and READ her dog better as well as to be consistent on every call she does with him. Because of this, she’s improved tenfold in getting better and more confident with him.
.
.

Here he is doing off leash work, we’ll call him VELCRO dog….. @ozzietheshepherd

When one thinks about dog training, the idea is to get your dog to understand words, obey commands and to listen.
.
.

The reality is that it’s much deeper, it’s preparing the dog to be a functional member of society, free of any vex. Social, happy, confident, obedient.
.
.

Indoctrinating mindset with commands is when your dog is truly trained.

Have a dog that’s full of energy and you can’t never exhaust them and the idea of a treadmill came to mind? Well if you own a BULL BREED, you might want to reconsider a treadmill. In the eyes of the law, ownership of a treadmill along with a BULL BREED would be viewed as DOG FIGHTING PARAPHERNALIA.
.
.

Don’t take my word for it, log onto www.neacha.org and check for yourself.
.
.

Sadly most DOGMEN would have a combination of at least a few items in their possession and yet have never fought a dog in their life.
Here is a list of items which if found in your possession, you could be placed under arrest and possible forfeiture of your animals under the guise of DOG FIGHTING PARAPHERNALIA.
.
.

Spring pole/flirt pole
Slat mill/carpet mill/treadmill
Turntable
Cat mill (jenny)
Antibiotics/drugs/supplements
Medical supplies
Drag sleds
Weight pulling harnesses
Chains
Breaking stick
Pedigrees
Large amounts of money
Barrel dog housing
Scars/wounds
Conditioned dog
Books/magazines/journals/DVDs on the breed
Weighted collars
Human drugs (such as marijuana and cocaine)
Prong collars
Heavy duty dog collars
Above the ground kennels

If you going to train your dog don’t wait, just train them for everything you want starting young and get it done. You don’t wait for children to be 16 and put them in school, so why would you wait for your dog to be older to train them?
.
.

basic obedience is just that. BASIC. Train your dog with off leash and social abilities in mind and do it BIG from the beginning.
.
.

Lastly this can apply to our lives as well. Go BIG or go home. .

ʀᴇᴘᴏsᴛ
.
.

The use of prosthetic’s have been around for centuries, Ancient Greek and Roman literature referenced some of the earliest historical accounts of prosthetic limbs in stories and poems. In the year 2000, researchers in Cairo, Egypt, unearthed what they believe to be the oldest documented artificial body part a prosthetic toe made of wood and leather. The device, found attached to the nearly 3,000-year-old mumified remains of an Egyptian noblewoman, is a good representation of how little prosthetic limbs have changed throughout history.
.
.

The fact that humans love of dogs is not surprising that Prosthetic’s would eventually become an option to dog owners facing an amputation(s). Early veterinary practices believed that a dog with 3 legs would manage just as well as if it had all fours. Although this may be true, with medical advances it’s a no brainier to fork over the $600 to $800 per limb and buy a leg or four for your furever friend.
.
.

This picture represents an early bull terrier with a fitted prosthetic (circa early 1900’s) Someone asked if I thought the dog lost his leg in a dog fight, I replied NO if the dog was a “fighting dog” then he’d have evidence of scars on his face, legs and body and this dog clearly doesn’t.
