Humans do a fantastic job at making things more complicated than it should be. Ownership of a dog should not be stressful.

.

Invest the time to find a good trainer and do your part. Start young, be committed and have fun. Mistakes will happen, but learn from them instead of fretting from them.

During the mid 19th century with the Industrial Revolution in full swing, middle class families began keeping domesticated dogs and cats as pets rather than dogs bred for working and/or a purpose.
.
.
Up to that point, the common households gave little consideration to the animals they owned. So a dogs diet consisted of whatever an owner could spare. Potatoes, bread, knuckle bones, cabbage or whatever leftovers they were.
.
.
Around 1860 a businessman by the name of James Spratt saw dogs being fed leftover biscuits from a ship and an idea was born. With a mix of wheat meals, vegetables, beetroot and beef blood the first commercially-prepared pet food was introduced to meet the new market demand of middle class families.
.
.
Using the current nutritional knowledge of the time period, around 1890 a British company took over Mr. Spratt’s formulas and productions sending the business overseas to the U.S. and the commercial dog food craze began to take shape.
.
.
Bet you didn’t know
.
.
A common meat source to purchase in the early 20th century was HORSE meat, as many working horses would die in the streets, instead of disposing the bodies, they were broken down for feed. Commercial canned dog food company “Ken-L Ration,” was introduced in 1922 and its main ingredient was horse meat, a acceptable ingredient source at the time.

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.

whч dσgs hσwl?
.
.

Howling is a normal behavior, sharing with it’s ancestral background of the wolf.
.
.

A dog will commonly howl when the persistent sounds of a siren is heard.
Howling will also occur when a dog is feeling territorial or stressed out. More than likely a dog would howl to alert to other dogs that they’re getting close to their territory or signal them to leave. I’ve witnessed dogs howling after a few minutes of their owners leaving, it’s like their saying “come back home already”
.
.

In the end maybe your dog likes to hear themselves howl, just as some of us like singing in the shower 🚿

A common question I get “WHAT METHOD DO YOU USE FOR YOUR TRAINING?”
.
.

I don’t really like this question as some trainers actually believe that the methods they were taught in is the only method available to train a dog and they should only be trained within those methods.
.
.

My rebuttal is If you train ten (10) dogs the same way nine (9) dogs wouldn’t be trained right. Every dog is different, you can begin with a different breed, is it a male versus a female, age of when you begin training, owners having different ideas of how to raise the puppy, and of course personalities, etc.
.
.

When we look at it that way, a trainer must adjust and adapt to each dog and do what’s best and responsible to attain the best results, and that’s definitely not using the one method that a trainer knows but various methods to get there.

Training with me doesn’t always have to …

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 👇🏽

Let’s face it, we can all be inconsistent in areas of our lives. So when it comes to training your dog I can see how one can be lazy. You hired a dog trainer to TRAIN your dog but you must understand that in order to get your dog to work for you, you must also put in work and be CONSISTENT with how you handle your dog.
.
.

There is one thing if the person doesn’t earn the respect of his dog and expects the dog to do what he’s been taught, it’s another when they know how to handle their dogs but are too inconsistent with caring about their dogs behavior in one situation and not in another.
.
.

Inconsistency in dog training can lead to future behavior problems when there is none. Dogs basically understand RIGHT or WRONG, the BLACK and WHITE of things.
.
.

Look at it this way, if 9 out of 10 times you keep your dog from jumping on you, but on that 10th time you relent, it is that moment that your dog feels like he won and succeeded. That my friends is what keeps DOGS CONSISTENTLY trying. The point is you’re the superior animal here, don’t allow the dog to get his way. Try to be more consistent in what you trained for, what you want and what you expect. Your dog will thank you for it in the end.
