The original caption translated to “Alabai and the wolf” I’m posting it to bring attention to how dangerous a wild animal whether it be a wolf, coyote, mountain lion, etc can be to our pets.

.

.

Recently I was engaged in a conversation with several gentlemen regarding the ferocity of the #alabai #centralasianshepherd against wild predators. In general, these Mastiff dogs are tough, no nonsense dogs that are primarily defense driven. I’m not questioning that.

.

.

What I do question is when fan boys of the breed post videos of these dogs killing a wolf and play to their audience that the breed is tougher than a wild animal. Forums and opinions feed on this but their usually something else that people don’t know when they watch the videos.

.

.

A wolf would be caught, either drugged and starved and then after a few days they’d let a dog on them. Obviously not fair, uncalled for and not a realistic view as to what would go on in the real world. What are your thoughts on this and knowing more of how it really happens do you still agree that these dogs are as tough as advertised?

If your dogs a retriever, does he have to retrieve? If it’s a Pit Bull, does he have to fight? If it’s a Husky, well you get it…..

His name is Vinny a purebred French Bulldog with cropped ears, loved by Susan and Barry of Yorba Linda Ca. This is his story.

My ex daughter in law had a litter of Frenchies. At 6wks she allowed the puppies to be shown, Vinny the pick of litter. A gentleman made arrangements to view the puppies at 3pm. He called throughout the day to move the time citing family issues, finally arriving at 8:45pm. 45 mins into viewing he became antsy and nervous, picking Vinny up & tucking him under his coat running out the front door. Vinny was stolen and a police report was filed.

A few months later a Frenchie breeder in Santa Ana Ca. received a call for her pups. Upon arrival a man looking for a pup, ran out the house shoving the owner out the way with the mother of the pups in his arms. A police report was filed and after putting the stories together found that the same guy had stolen both dogs catching him 5 months later.

Vinny was returned but with his ears cropped. Knowing he couldn’t be sold in his altered condition, my granddaughter pleaded with me to come see and possibly adopt him. I wasn’t prepared for a dog as my mother and sister both diagnosed with cancer had recently moved in. With a full plate I knew it’d be much to add a 5 month old pup but the minute I layed eyes on Vinny “it was love at first sight” and he hasn’t left my side since.

Vinny has had his share of health issues. He’s lost some hearing in his ears and has developed eye ulcers requiring graphs where he’s loss some sight but you wouldn’t know it as he’s happy, funny and loved by everyone he meets. Vinny’s loves other dogs especially Biscuit, the Boston. Every time we come from shopping he’s checking bags for a new ball having at least 100 already. He sleeps with his paw like a pacifier and plays a ‘ratting’ game i’d never seen a dog do before. We thought he had a mental disorder as he’s so intense! One of my faves is the way he walks on a leash prancing on his tip toes to look taller as my protector. They’re many more stories could tell about Vinny but in the end we love him.

This is time of the year dogs are given as gifts and just like most gifts, they’re forgotten by January. A house doesn’t need a dog unless it’s ready for one.

.

.

Before giving the gift that keeps shitting, rethink that thought as they’re so many dogs in shelters and dog pounds.

.

.

If you do bring home a dog, that home will be complete with a dog. Do the right thing and train your dog to fit your lifestyle and family needs. Pick the right breed and make the time to put into your new family member.

.

.

This is to everyone who does bring home a puppy/dog this holiday season, if you need help with your new acquisition don’t hesitate to reach out… Happy Holidays all🎄

My new installment to #dogsandpeople series introduces you to @ozzietheshepherd Ozzie’s been through several trainers in his 3 years, all having different ideas, methods and approach in training through his aggression issues.

.

.

Ozzie came from a litter of working and show dogs. Audrey (Oz’s human companion) took a video of her picking from the litter and after reviewing the video she began seeing some behavior and temperament issues and phoned the breeder to see if she can exchange with the other available male whom she thought would be a better fit. The breeder assured her she had made the right choice, stating “all her dogs are good” This is where I tell you, “a breeder will tell you everything you want to hear, to make a sale”

.

.

Throughout Ozzie’s formative months, behavioral and aggression issues kept a stream of trainers (6) shuffling in/out of their lives. The first trainer said Oz was a liability and she should return him to the breeder. At 7 months old, Audrey was faced with returning Oz again but changed her mind again. Audrey enrolled Oz with a 3rd trainer who had a boot camp and while there notified her of a potential buyer for him. Searching for guidance on the right choice, Audrey began to pray and randomly opened her bible to this passage (slide to the right) “I started crying because in my heart I believed this was my sign, and I trusted the good lord” From that day she stuck it out.

.

.

Audrey feels that Ozzie came into her life for a reason and has no regrets of all the work and stress that they’ve been through. “I believe things come into our lives for a reason to learn from or make us stronger to change our ways” says Audrey. “I have learned to be patient and calm because of Ozzie, if you knew me before Ozzie” Personally knowing Oz and hopefully being his last trainer, he is a loyal loving family dog with only a few dog issues but which dog is perfect.

The Teakettler is a legendary creature from American folklore with origins in lumberjack culture, specifically the lumber camps of Minnesota and Wisconsin. It is said to resemble a small stubby legged dog with the ears of a cat. Its name comes from the sound it makes, which is akin to that of a boiling tea kettle. It only walks backwards, and steam issues from its mouth as it makes its whistle. As the myth goes, only a few lumberjacks have seen one, as they are very shy, but if a boiling kettle is heard and nowhere to be found, it is sure that a Teakettler is nearby.

It’s not the word that a dog begins to understand, but the actual sound of the word attributed to the language being spoken. After hearing the word/sound “sit” many times, a dog will eventually associate it with the behavior.

.

.

An average dog identifies 150 or so words/sounds by association, with some dogs learning 250 or more. A Border Collie named Chaser takes the cake, it was reported that he knew 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 “ball” can be said in different languages yielding the same result.
