My new installment to #dogsandpeople series in…

My new installment to #dogsandpeople series introduces you to @ozzietheshepherd Ozzie’s been through several trainers in his 3 years, all having different ideas, methods and approach in training through his aggression issues.

.

.

Ozzie came from a litter of working and show dogs. Audrey (Oz’s human companion) took a video of her picking from the litter and after reviewing the video she began seeing some behavior and temperament issues and phoned the breeder to see if she can exchange with the other available male whom she thought would be a better fit. The breeder assured her she had made the right choice, stating “all her dogs are good” This is where I tell you, “a breeder will tell you everything you want to hear, to make a sale”

.

.

Throughout Ozzie’s formative months, behavioral and aggression issues kept a stream of trainers (6) shuffling in/out of their lives. The first trainer said Oz was a liability and she should return him to the breeder. At 7 months old, Audrey was faced with returning Oz again but changed her mind again. Audrey enrolled Oz with a 3rd trainer who had a boot camp and while there notified her of a potential buyer for him. Searching for guidance on the right choice, Audrey began to pray and randomly opened her bible to this passage (slide to the right) “I started crying because in my heart I believed this was my sign, and I trusted the good lord” From that day she stuck it out.

.

.

Audrey feels that Ozzie came into her life for a reason and has no regrets of all the work and stress that they’ve been through. “I believe things come into our lives for a reason to learn from or make us stronger to change our ways” says Audrey. “I have learned to be patient and calm because of Ozzie, if you knew me before Ozzie” Personally knowing Oz and hopefully being his last trainer, he is a loyal loving family dog with only a few dog issues but which dog is perfect.

Excellent post from @CaodeTrabalho that I found and wanted to share with you all. The caption was in Brazilian so I didn’t repost the words and I mean no disrespect.

.

.

The video shows a well trained, patient dog that is being tested and ran through a “real world situation” As a trainer that has worked and created scenarios like this, it was well executed and the dog is fully engaged in his job.

.

.

This is a great example of how a dog can protect you and your family.

Being it’s Veterans Day, I salute the men and women that has and still serve our country. Being a dog trainer I want to also thank our dogs of past and present for their services as well.

.

.

So to tell this story about the medical center laboratories of the Veterans Administration who we find to be embroiled in a controversy involving the mistreatment of canines shouldn’t be the day but it’s important for all to know.

.

.

I read news reports last week that found the VA continuing to conduct invasive experiments on dogs as part of its medical research program, resulting in the euthanasia of the animals. According to these reports, experiments at four VA facilities, including in Milwaukee, where researchers are removing parts of the dogs’ brains to test neurons that control breathing prior to killing them by lethal injection, and in Cleveland, where doctors are measuring dogs’ cough reflexes by placing electrodes on their spinal cords. When done, the cords are severed, killing the dogs. 

.

.

It is important in the name of science for testing and experiments to be done and the VA is not alone in using dogs in the name of scientific research. Im not totally against the practice as it’s critical to medical breakthroughs, but to simply mistreat the animals as collateral isn’t a cool thing.

.

.

On this Veterans Day weekend let’s think of the men and women as well as the dogs that serve our country and bring some attention to this matter urging the VA medical staff to change their approach and better care of the dogs through positive prevention studies designed to keep animals and people healthy, and advocating in any work it funds that no animals are harmed, there is no induction of illness or injury, and they are not euthanized.

The same way a smile from a human is a simple …

The same way a smile from a human is a simple means of communication a wagging tail of a dog is their way of notifying intentions. A common myth is a dogs wagging tail, denotes a happy and friendly signal. Indeed a tail that is wagging is usually a sign of friendliness, it can also mean other things such as an insecurity or fear.

.

.

First let’s ask this question, do dogs wag their tails when no one is watching or when there is no stimulation? Sure they do, much like facial expressions you’d make thinking of thoughts or seeing objects that triggers a memory. A dog will do the same but with a different wag.

.

.

Wags are a way of communicating with one another as well as with us. Sort of a (body) language with vocabularies and grammar injected here and there. Positions and movement make up the load of how dogs address each other and humans. A dog will focus on the way a dog carries (moves) its tail
as their more keen to its movements and places it sets its tail. Breeds like the Beagle which carry their tails straight up and stiff also tend to have a white tip helping other dogs identify better.

.

.

A tale of a tail’s position; where a dog carries its tail can tell you where your dogs is emotionally. A dog carrying its tail mid height suggests he’s relaxed. A tail held horizontally, and a dog is usually attentive and alert. A vertical tail is a dominant signal. On the other end, a tail that lowers is a sign of becoming submissive with a tucked tail under its body identifying a sign of fear.

How many times have I had this conversation about protection/bite work and the training involve to get a dog not only to commit but to stay in the fight. @protectionk9sww posted this and had a great caption (no disrespect to your caption I wanted to direct this to my clients) so please find it and read it as he’s stating the same facts in his words.

.

.

“If the dogs never seen it, they wouldn’t know how to react” wonder how many times I’ve said this in training. This dog committed but wouldn’t stay in the fight when the decoy fought back, even a trained dog like this can be backed down if challenged correctly. What’s more evident of the rush in its training is that this appears to be a sanctioned Ring sport trial and the dog was still exposed. Although this is the correct thing for the decoy to have done as he found the “Chink in its armor” someone in the crowd got upset and gave him a piece of his mind.

.

.

Also note the decoy is wearing a bite suit and if anything the dog should know it’s training time and is going to be worked, imagine if this was a real life situation how would have this dog fared. The “fight or flight” notion comes to mind. The moral of this is all dogs bite but will they protect you if they are challenged let alone defend themselves.

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.
