Did you know that a child in the Boy or Girl Scouts can earn a badge for dog care, well they can. A badge of merit for pet care has been around since the early 1900’s and has evolved from First Aid to Animals to Veterinary Medicine as well as Pet Care.

Beginning my series of #peopleanddogseries @jessicanunex was the first to reply. This series is intended to show peoples love for their dogs, here’s Jessica’s story of her beloved Shar Pei’s.

.

.

Athena (brown colored) is a 4 year old female and the first Shar Pei she owned. Having encountered other Shar Pei’s, Jessica disliked their prickly coats but her husband convinced her to “just look” into one. After some searching, the last pup of a litter she found without a “prickly coat” was the one they brought home.

.

.

Realizing early her pup didn’t trust people, it was important for Athena to be socialized and since Jessica worked at a vet clinic at the time, taking her to work for socialization was ideal. Athena still has trust issues but will do anything for food as she’s known as a “fatty” at home.Typical of Shar Pei’s, she doesn’t like dogs that are her size or bigger and hates cats but ironically loves little dogs.

.

.

The blue Shar Pei is named Blue. He’s a 3 year old male who was a surprise Valentines gift from Jessica’s husband, believing that Athena needed a friend they brought him home and has become part of their family. Jessica feels he is more trust worthy of people even though he wasn’t socialized in the same manner and is considered more a people lover that loves to cuddle. He too doesn’t like dogs his size or bigger but is fine with smaller dogs.

.

.

They are absolutely loved and well cared for and as Jessica stated, since “I don’t have kids of my own they are my kids”

One of the worst thing you can instill in a child is FEAR. Fear of dogs, reptiles, animals in general. Fear of not being good enough, strong enough or loved enough.

.

.

Growing up in the inner city I witnessed for myself how a phobia of dogs were instilled in children. I had no fear of animals, let alone dogs and knew I would raise my kids to be the same way.

.

.

Here’s a small sample of my youngest children “living their best life” when it comes to hanging with dad, dogs and reptiles…..

Mastiff’s have been around for ages. The painting is of a dog from the 1600’s of the five eldest children of Charles and their dogs. Swipe to the left and see a similar looking Mastiff, present day.

.

.

See the similarities and the size of the dogs. Can anyone name the breed?

CONTROL; the ability to manage, influence and/or direct a dog. This is an example of how you train, teach, imprint, work (pick a word) to gain the CONTROL of a dog.

.

.

It doesn’t matter if it’s a man or woman, young or old, it comes down to training with CONTROL.

They may look fun and cute, Maltese dogs are often intolerant of children or other animals. It is not uncommon for Maltese to be hostile to people other than their owners.

.

.

A common problem often found in the Maltese breed is the dark coloration under their eyes, coming from their tear ducts. Not necessarily a problem, “tear staining” can often be an eyesore for some owners, and is usually just caused by overwatering of the dog’s eyes or even just the size and production of their tear ducts in general.

.

.

It is believed that the Maltese breed white coat was specially bred by the Romans. The color white was sacred to the Romans, who wanted their pets to exhibit an air of divinity.

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.
