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.

With so many working breeds to choose from it seems sometimes lthe only dogs people think are working dogs are PRESA, ROTTWEILERS, GERMAN SHEPHERDS, BOERBOELS etc.
.

Let me introduce you to a few other breeds that don’t always get their fair share of shine but are BREEDS OF PURPOSE

The Cimarron Uruguayo is a dog native of Uruguay and are today traditionally known for their round shaped ear crop that resembles the ears of a Puma, an animal they once hunted.
.

The Uruguayan government sent in the military to help eradicate the breed that was once destroying farms, livestock and intimidating many of the people that lived in the rural areas.
.

The breed hunted pumas and cougars in the jungles of Uruguay so much so that they almost decimated the animal from the area.
.

Although the Cimarron Uruguayo is not currently recognized by the American Kennel Club (AKC), for the betterment of the breed it appears it will be recognized anytime in the near future. FCI and UKC recognition have greatly increased the Cimarron Uruguayo’s international profile.
.

Cimarron Uruguayo remain a relatively rare breed, especially outside of Uruguay although the breed is increasing in popularity. Unlike most of the modern breeds today, the Cimarron Uruguayo remains primarily a working dog, a true breed of purpose.

The calm before the storm….

Stella (4 month old) is the forth (4th) dog I’ve trained for this client. Already started foundation bite work, obedience and of course she’s housebroken while we waited for her ears to heal. We’re 2 months into training…..
.

It all comes down to setting a plan and following through.

Team work: a principal point when it comes to a dog and his owner. The human is the point and the dog is the partner. When I first met Ozzie after evaluating him I realized what his issues were. I was surprised at how much better than I initially thought his obedience was but there was a bigger issues looming. He had been through several other trainers before coming to me and so I was bemused to see that they didn’t identify it either.
.
.

The issue I noticed was that Ozzie and his owner wasn’t a cohesive team which is one of the key principals to dog training. I’ll explain and give an example. What is an AUTOMATIC SIT? When walking with your dog and when you come to a STOP, your dog should automatically SIT on every stop!
.
.

Here’s the thing, when in a walk you stop 10 times and your dog only comes to a sit on 5 of those occasions and the other 5 times he doesn’t sit but you don’t correct timely or at all, what your dog will not be doing is an AUTOMATIC SIT. When you’re not consistent and connected with your dog, listening and following through is not what he’s going to do. It’s as if Ozzie is a gambler and is willing to gamble the odds of his owner correcting him on every time he doesn’t SIT on a stop.
.
.

So back to Ozzie, I’m working with his owner to understand and READ her dog better as well as to be consistent on every call she does with him. Because of this, she’s improved tenfold in getting better and more confident with him.
.
.

Here he is doing off leash work, we’ll call him VELCRO dog….. @ozzietheshepherd

More actual and factual:
.
.

The Hush Puppies shoe company gained its inspiration to name it in 1958 by the company’s first sales manager, James Muir. While on a sales trip in Southeastern United States he noticed that farmers and hunters would throw Southern cornballs (Hush Puppies) to their barking and howling Basset Hounds to quiet the dogs down. As the story goes, “barking dogs” was another name for sore feet and Muir thought to himself that people could, “quiet their barking dogs” with these shoes. The Basset Hound continues to be the shoe brand’s mascot.
.
.

The BLOODHOUND is known as the best scent dog in the business with the BASSET HOUNDS a close second. Bassets have over 220 million smell receptors versus a human with about five million and the portion of their brains responsible for the sense of smell is 40 times that of a human’s as well.
.
.

A BASSET HOUNDS floppy ears actually serve a practical purpose. Bassets have one of the best senses of smell of all breeds and their ears have a lot to do with it. While tracking prey, the breeds ears would sweep up scent toward the dogs nose while the loose skin or dewlap at the BASSET HOUNDS throat, would help trap scent to amplify the dog’s already powerful olfactory ability. Being short to the ground also helped.
