I made decision to buy a working dog, so I called my friend @stevethedogtrainer to see what he thought I should get, so after thinking about it I decided to buy a Belgian Malinois. I met @stevethedogtrainer 15 years ago an I’ve been lucky to have a friend, trainer and support of @stevethedogtrainer over the years.

.
.

He has an amazing ability to clarify his methods and translate them into layman’ terms. He has helped many people for regional, national and international events getting there dogs to perform reliably and successfully. Also being a multi breed competitor I truly appreciate @stevethedogtrainer ability to work with any breed in an unbiased manner giving everything he does 💯percent. I don’t know of “any” other school or instructor(s) that has the gift and passion for teaching when it comes to dogs combined with years of collected experience and knowledge that @stevethedogtrainer have!

Steve called me and said I have a breeder that has a litter coming due in Dec 2016. Steve described the parent pedigree, then I said I want a puppy from that litter Now my little boy Jagger is 4 months and doing great! Below is a video of steve and Jagger doing some bite work also notice how calm Jagger is on the bite and how steve interact with Jagger “amazing”! Thanks a million @stevethedogtrainer

What do you see in this picture?

.
.

What I see are children and a dog that technically are all of about the same age. Now you may be asking yourself, how so? Children ages 5 and 6, the dog, 4 months.

.
.

What I’m getting at is that humans will take years to become productive adults whereas a dog, in only a year it can become one. Take the time to train your dog while it’s young, in the case of Zulu where he’ll be 100 plus pounds, do it before he trains you!

As a trainer, one wants to help the client “train” what behavioral issue they face with their dog, solve them and we’re all happy.

.
.

It is when they take what they’ve learn to levels that compare to those that have been “training” for years and make it look easy. @jager_the_malinois and Terry has come a long way and I’m truly proud of my friend and his quest to title Jaeger to his SCH title.
.

Here is a clip of where he’s at which his obedience, I will keep everyone posted when we’re ready to trial him which is coming up real soon. Enjoy the video and as always, your comments are welcome.

ᴇᴅɪᴛᴏʀɪᴀʟ
.
.

In August 2000, the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) published their “Law Enforcement Canine Model Policy”. This was the first time in the history of police canine where a law enforcement association recommended a training philosophy of “bark and hold”. Their model policy stated “Training and deployment of police canines shall employ the “guard and bark” rather than the “guard and hold” method”. IACP has re-issued this model policy in September 2001. IACP still remains the only law enforcement association that has recommended this training philosophy.
.
.

The idea of the hold and bark has its importance in evaluating temperament and character of the dog in the areas of courage and fighting drives for a sport such as Schutzhund, but can be enforced for civilian use if more departments trained for it. The problem with law enforcement is that most Departments view it as “sport bullshit” and not viewed with enough importance, as their views are “if the perpetrator runs, he should get bit”
.
.

I can see how it can be scary for a criminal who is running from a dog to try to listen to the officers/handlers command to stop moving when a dog is upon them and it’s not always that easy for a dog to distinguish if a criminal is trying to stop in live action. Therefore its probably not going to happen in the majority of cases but if more departments enforce the rule and dogs are taught correctly then the chances of departments being sued can and should go down over time.

In continuance of my latest post regarding soundness that stems from straight lines in conformation, the American Bulldog pictured is a great example of a well structured, sound and straight dog for his breed.
.
.

As an enthusiast of dogs, especially American Bulldogs I feel obligated to encourage and educate breeders to produce dogs that are physically sound for performance and to create the breed standard off a performance type instead of what the show ring is insisting today.
.
.

Conformation is important, it’s the structure of the dog and half of what impacts the proper performance dog, temperament/drive is the other but without proper structure your dogs ability in doing its job is impacted.
.
.

When I evaluate a performance dog, I look at the dogs rear end as it is their motor, where all the strength and power is generated and the most important structural point. A dog that is weak in the rear with a nice front end is like owning a Big Rig with a 4 cylinder engine to motor it around town.
.
.

If all the power is in the back then whats needed is a straight legged but well angulated and balanced front with strong shoulders to guide the dog in the direction and to accept the power coming from behind.
.
.

Lastly the ability to stop quickly and effortlessly, accelerate with power and turn on a dime will serve the dog well. With a combination of performance and temperament traits, your working dog will take you places.

Editorial
.
.

In the book, Dogs of All Nations (1915) the German Shepherd is described as a medium-sized dog (25 kg / 55 lbs) In less than 100 years the German Shepherd has evolved into a large (38kg / 85lbs) barrel chested, rear angulated with a sloping back dog which through these physical changes has emerged physical and genetic issues.
.
.

“Form follows function” The principle behind this is a dogs physical form should allow proper movement intended for function or purpose without impediment.
.
.

Now this may sound intellectual for some but what its simply implying is today’s “SHOW DOG” in AMERICA aren’t properly bred to be able to run, work or jump, etc due to the attention in conformation versus that of work ability.
.
.

Understand the SV, The Verein für deutsche Schäferhunde (Society for German Shepherd Dogs), abbreviated as SV the parent club of the German Shepherd, who’s responsible for the breed standard emphasizes temperament, durability and overall soundness.
.
.

In Europe, in order to receive permission to breed a dog, the SV places restrictions in that said dog for breeding must attain a working title (Sch, IPO) or an AD title (endurance test consisting of a 12.5 mile run) and a temperament/companion title (BH) as well as passing with free of Dysplasia (HD free) on all joints before it’s considered to be bred.
.
.

Question: Have you’ve heard of anything as such in the states that pertains to the “SHOW RING” placing “mandatories” for dogs to earn titles before breeding? In Europe this is how it’s done, I’m for adopting the same guidelines for all Show and Working dogs. If more breeders in the states integrate this into their breeding programs, it is when we’ll see healthier, more functional dogs on a consistent basis.

Have you ever heard the quote “you are what you eat” alike people, dogs are what they eat as well. Heart, kidney and liver disease are at epidemic numbers, 40% of dogs are obese in the US. with 46% of dogs dying of cancer in the every year.
.
.

Dry dog foods contribute to gum and tooth disease and dental disease affects over 70 percent of dogs and cats before the age of two.
.
.

So what’s the common denominator here, the Unnatural diets (low quality kibble) we feed them. Let’s open our minds and see what else is out there to offer. Raw meats, fruits and veggies.
.

Read my previous two post to get more info on what you can do to feed better and feel better for your pet.
