This picture is not photoshopped, Wolves are large animals. The largest wolf subspecies in the world is Canis Lupus Occidentalis, also known as the Mackenzie Valley Wolf or as the Alaskan/Canadian Timberwolf. It typically stands about 32–34 inches at the shoulder and weighs between 110 and 175 pounds with reports of wolves as large as 235 pounds.

.
.

Its a powerfully built animal with evolution on it’s side helping it to develop thick long limbs for traversing through rough terrain such as deep snow or the cliffy edges of the Rocky Mountains. Its deep chest hosts large lungs, letting it breathe efficiently at higher altitudes and allowing it to exert huge amounts of stamina. This stamina enables the wolf to travel up to 70 miles in one day.

.

.

Its powerful neck is a very important adaptation; it has to be strong to support the wolf’s large head and is crucial for bringing down prey. The skull is 12 inches long and can support a much larger brain, and is armed with an impressive array of large canines and carnassial teeth which, and when coupled with huge jaw muscles, gives it an incredible bite force that is strong enough to break the bones of prey and even crack the femur of moose.

.

.

It is not uncommon for a pack of wolves to bring down a bison. The strength of these animals individually are above any domesticated dogs but in a pack, it’s downright destructive. So for those that call me talking about their breed can take out a wolf (wild animal) please rethink and use some common sense and discretion.

.
.

Note: a difference between a dog and a wolf when fighting is a dog will fight and walk away from the battle when done whereas a wolf will fight til the end and eat the dog.

In Kabul, Afghanistan dog fighting is semi-legal. Years ago the Taliban banned the sport and deemed it Haram (sinful, in Islamic terms) but the sport is back and watched by many, as large crowds continue to flock to fights.

.
.

Although it’s seen by many as a cruel and unusual sport, the Police don’t seem to mind it much and in fact tolerate it but they can’t be seen to be encouraging it.

.
.

A possible reason why dog fights have become popular once again in Afghanistan is since fighting dogs are were an important part of their lives and history, when the Taliban enforced their regime over them, they took away many liberties that the Afghans had. So in a way fighting dogs shows the progress from the Taliban years, when so many liberties were banned.

No matter how aggressive, tough or big an LGD (Livestock Guardian Dog) is, this can happen. Don’t believe all the hype of the internet of how tough some of these dogs are.
.
.

They’re dealing with a wild animal that hunts in packs like they’ve been reading The Art of War by Sun Tzu.
I’m a huge dog lover and totally understand how tough some of these LGD’s are working, training and owning many of them but let’s keep it real.
.
.

This picture represents the realness of what LGD’s have to contend with. In a fight to protect livestock depending on the size of the Flock, several dogs will be needed to avoid a situation like this. If one or two dogs are placed out there to defend a stock, a wolf pack is probably going to make mincemeat out of the LGD’s.
.
.

This is the sad side of what the BREEDS OF PURPOSE represents to the human race.

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.

There is a distinct difference between a dog I train for protection and having someone else train your dog.
.
.
If an intruder enters your house, the dog trained by someone else will bark to let you know someone’s there.
.
.
If your dog is trained by me, you’ll won’t hear a bark, because you’ll hear the intruder yelling for help.
.
.
28 years of experience training dogs so I can hear the bad guy yell. That’s real conversation for yo ass!

It’s always refreshing to see dogs still serving a purpose for mankind. A few things I’d like to point out in this short video.
.
.
First notice how blended in the dog is to the sheep. See how calm the dog is around them and how he compares to their size. Lastly, how well behaved he is to his handler.
.
.
These four points are important in LGD (Livestock Guardian Dogs) as their main purpose is to protect the livestock from predatory animals that are searching for an easy meal. A dog lacking in any of these points can be a liability to its purpose.
