The original caption translated to “Alabai and the wolf” I’m posting it to bring attention to how dangerous a wild animal whether it be a wolf, coyote, mountain lion, etc can be to our pets.

.

.

Recently I was engaged in a conversation with several gentlemen regarding the ferocity of the #alabai #centralasianshepherd against wild predators. In general, these Mastiff dogs are tough, no nonsense dogs that are primarily defense driven. I’m not questioning that.

.

.

What I do question is when fan boys of the breed post videos of these dogs killing a wolf and play to their audience that the breed is tougher than a wild animal. Forums and opinions feed on this but their usually something else that people don’t know when they watch the videos.

.

.

A wolf would be caught, either drugged and starved and then after a few days they’d let a dog on them. Obviously not fair, uncalled for and not a realistic view as to what would go on in the real world. What are your thoughts on this and knowing more of how it really happens do you still agree that these dogs are as tough as advertised?

The original post said “saved by the dogs” if you read my second to last post I wrote about the importance of owning a dog for home protection. Watch how these dogs saved this man from possible harm.

It’s not the word that a dog begins to understand, but the actual sound of the word attributed to the language being spoken. After hearing the word/sound “sit” many times, a dog will eventually associate it with the behavior.

.

.

An average dog identifies 150 or so words/sounds by association, with some dogs learning 250 or more. A Border Collie named Chaser takes the cake, it was reported that he knew the distinct names of 1022 objects including 800 different dog toys.

.

.

In multi-cultural homes, dogs are becoming multi-linguistic. Learning an object such as “ball” can be said in different languages yielding the same result.

Is aggression a learned behavior or genetics? …

Is aggression a learned behavior or genetics? In humans, studies have determined that aggression is a learned behavior but what about in dogs?

.

.

Many dog behaviorist believe that aggression is a taught behavior from us to them, that dogs aren’t born that way, they’re raised to be so. Here’s their argument: a puppy growls at another dog, people would often overlook and say “he’s a puppy” and without thinking PRAISE the behavior and from that point on, aggression is instantaneously OK’d in a dogs mind.

.

.

This is often called an Operant behavior, aggressive behavior is Operant behavior. Operant: a behavior that is initially spontaneous, rather than a response to a stimulus, consequences reinforces the recurrence of that behavior.

.

.

Although this is how dog aggression begins I lean with the theory that genetics plays more of a role that behaviorist want to believe. Dog fighting breeds genetically will show aggression towards other dogs whether or not someone is perpetuating it, in the end it comes down to the individual dog.

.

.

What are your thoughts, is your dog too aggressive to be around people and other dogs?

In a meticulous account kept by Pilgrim Edward Winslow about the first permanent non-native settlement of people is where the recording of a Mastiff and Spaniel were among those that sailed with the first settlers. Winslow left no records of the dogs names.
It is safe to say that the Mastiff was an Old English type and the Spaniel was a English Springer Spaniel type since their voyage began from England.

.

.

A 25 year old Pilgrim named John Goodman was their human companion. He was an important gentlemen as he was one of the men who signed the Mayflower Compact, the document which established the rules by which the settlers would live in the settlements.
