Nobody surely knows when the first collar was …

Nobody surely knows when the first collar was strapped on a dogs neck but I’m of the theory that the bond between dog and human began the day a wolf cub was taken from its mother, a collar was placed and ownership and domestication began.

.
.

Written human history of the Egyptians has shown us that they were the first to introduce the use of collars on their dogs. It is believed that Egyptian royalty used collars for decorative (fashion) and possibly for identification. Dogs for purposes such has hunting and protection would also utilize a type of collar in Egyptian times but it wasn’t until the Ancient Greeks and Romans that purposeful metal, leather and spike collars evolved and collars took a more menacing route.

.
.

It is believed that Greek farmers constructed the first spiked collars as a way of protecting their dogs throats from attacking wolves that targeted livestock and the dogs protecting them. Otherwise known as “wolf collars” these collars were normally made of a metal, usually iron fitted with elongated spikes to protect and stop wolves from attacking a dogs neck while at the same time being used as a weapon.

.
.

The Romans took collars on their dogs a step further as it would identify the role of position and job for a dog. Romans were so devoted to their dogs that Caesar reportedly had to publicly reprimand citizens for paying more attention to their dogs than to their children. Upper class Roman woman didn’t keep dogs as pets but more so as an accessory who wore collars made of jewels and metals.

.
.

Modern dog collars are a reflection of our ancient pass. Although collars aren’t made by metals craftsmen, saddle or shoe makers they still utilize quality materials manufactured by companies that specialize in dog collars. Two of the most common materials are leather and nylon.

I’ve been blessed to have owned and/or trained every dog breed I’ve ever wanted to. The French Mastiff or #doguedebordeaux was one of my favorites breeds to own. I had two (2) males that were athletic as any big dog and also excelled in bite work – Reno and Slob. I’ve yet to see one in 30 years that would actually work as hard as the ones I owned.
.
.

I must add that owning these majestic dog breeds has only helped me better understand the differences of behavior from breed to breed as well as gain an overall knowledge in dealing with each one with the respect that comes with ownership of the different breeds.

#throwbackthursday share any interesting stories of your dogs, here is mine….
.
.

I noticed bags of dog food would be raided and slobbered by one of the dogs but I couldn’t figure out which would do it since they were all in kennels. One day I looked out the window and noticed Reno popping his gate open, go into the bag of food, eat a few large gulps of dog food then retreat back into his kennel, all the while closing the latch behind him. Smh this guy was too clever for his own self.

Your dog can never be too old or too young to start training (within reason). Same can be said for a person, (again, within reason) Everyone must be involved, if they want their dog to listen.
.
.
Obviously aside from teaching a child RESPONSIBILITY, like having to remember to feed, provide fresh water, and to clean up after their dog. A relationship that develops can be life-changing for a child as they themselves continue to grow and develop.
.
.
When training a dog, I press to my clients how important PATIENCE is to teach their dogs. In turn, dogs teach children patience as a dog can be frustrating. Puppies like to nip and chew, scratch, jump and slobber while getting to children’s toys and destroying them as it’s theirs. Patience teaches children restrain all the while to teach without yelling and/or hitting a dog.
.
.
What I know for sure is that dogs teach children COMPASSION, understanding the feeling of emotions and pain. As dogs have short lives, and a child would more than likely be there for their dogs entire life cycle, a lesson however hard it may be is an invaluable lesson for a child as they comfort their dog and cope with their loss.
.
.
And most importantly how much FUN they will have with their best friend and pet by all the interaction they’ll have throughout their lifetime. From dressing them up, to taking them for walks. Spending time training and playing fetch. Your dog is always their through good and bad days as they’re always there to cheer you up.

Training with me doesn’t always have to be “walking in the middle of a park and making your dog do sit and heel commands” it comes down to learning how to communicate with your pet.
.
.
Anyone who’s worked with me knows that I try to explain every step of the way:
.
.
what your dog is doing
.
.
why he’s doing it
.
.
and what’s he going to do next.
.
.
A more educated client is a better client. A client that knows his dog, how to read his dog and who’s connected with his dog will make a better owner and friend for his pet.
.
.
Those of you who’s trained with me, share with others how you’ve learned about your dog and what I’m talking about down below 👇🏽

Respect goes a long way, it is not given but earned and dogs know who it gives it too. You can talk to your dog all day but if he don’t respect you then it’s fruitless.

.
.

Don’t ask your dog to do something, tell them to do it. Unlike humans, dogs take well to commands…..

The worlds changing around us, or has it alway…

The worlds changing around us, or has it always been the same laying in wait til the right moment to show its ugly head. Every level of our society has been adding to the lack of humanity, from the president to school yard bullies.

.
.

We’re seeing the decline of simple and kind acts from everyday people. When we see it and don’t do or say anything about it only adds to the fact that YOU TOO are allowing it to happen as you are humanity as well. We can only be responsible for ourselves in what we put out into the planet so pointing fingers and blaming others only rids yourself of responsibilities.

.
.

It’s easy to point fingers to who’s contributing to humanities downfall on earth and it’s easier to blame them for all but we (ourselves) have to own up to our responsibilities and change the way we do and act, when you know better you do better.

.
.

In the end change begins with you, if you can’t stand the culture we see around us then stop consuming it. If you don’t like something, then change it. No one but yourself can tell you to be compassionate, loving and kind to anyone, only you have that choice. If someone is rude or nasty, be the bigger person and move on.
Stop giving other people your power and be the change you want to see.

.
.

I wrote this because of all the stuff going on in today’s world but also because of what I posted yesterday of the little bully who was killed inhumanely. I don’t understand and want to know anyone that is that treacherous. Hope they find that asshole.

The now extinct Cordoba Fighting Dog originate…

The now extinct Cordoba Fighting Dog originated in Córdoba, Argentina. This breed was the predecessor to today’s Dogo Argentino. A main reason the breed vanished and the Dogo remained was its strong aggression toward other dogs. Primarily meant to be a fighting dog, even males and females would rather fight than mate. Although a
capable hunting dog, it hunted in small packs of a male and female, otherwise they were more likely to turn on their pack mates.
