Have you ever heard of “Scratch Reflex”

.

Dogs shake or kick their legs when you scratch them because it activates nerves under their skin that are connected to their spinal cord and relays a message to their leg muscles to kick in an attempt to get rid of the irritant.

.

Maybe you want to rethink of scratching them the next time you find it funny. 🤷🏻‍♂️

Posting this for all to see, this isn’t to shame anyone but to continue to educate.

.

.

On my stories I posed a question (watch the story again to see for yourself), is it ok for the puppy to lay down even though I told her to sit/stay after a minute or so into the command but I didn’t correct her. Was this OK?

.

.

It was ok, which is why all that answered “YES” said so. Part of the training is to also teach the puppy PATIENCE. A patient puppy will grow up to be a more patient adult and will happily remain on a longer sit as it gets older, wiser and trained/conditioned for the command.

.

.

Lastly I’d like to add, all those that answered YES are clients of mine. So thank you to all of you guys for remembering the training we’ve done with your dog! For those that still don’t understand, DM me and I’ll explain in more detail or just train your dog with me and you’ll get all my expertise of training for your dog! ✌🏽

Reposting in memory of my boy Dempsey! Started with him at two (2) years old (you CAN train an old dog) he was put down yesterday after a fight with Cancer. Demp you will be missed…..

.

If you are having problems with your dog and need help , you need to contact @stevethedogtrainer -STDT. Meet Dempsey the boxer , he was such a wild child very stubborn and strong,enter Steve . He not only helped me get him under control but we expanded his training to be a personal protection dog , Steve is an amazing trainer ,he knows how to handle each individual dog based on their personality which I think very important since one style does not fit every dog . Steve is always ready to help you with any questions anytime. I cannot say enough good things about this man and would recommend him to anyone , Steve is not only a honest person and a great father to all his children but all around great trainer. I cannot thank you enough for showing me what a great dog Dempsey is and will be forever!

Rules and laws are in place to keep control. Dog training in its basic form shares the same ideals.

.

.

Due to rules and regulations in the subway system, large dogs can’t travel with anyone unless it’s a service dog or if the dog can be carried in a carrier.

.

.

This guy has found the loop hole, he’s trained his dog to calmly sit in a bag while he travels is the epitome of what training can do for you.

.

.

Gain control, liberate yourself from having to be concerned of your animal and allow the freedom to go places and do things you’d like to do with your dog. Forward this to someone needing help training their dog.

There’s lesson(s) to be learned if we’d only be “more like dogs”

.

.

Dogs don’t judge nor do they criticize, loyalty isn’t just a hashtag and they’re always happy to see you. Material things are something to chew on, they’re always down for whatever is going on. A dog will always take the initiative when it comes to spilled food, are amazing listeners and unlike people they’ll decrease your blood pressure.

𝐋ike humans, dogs are social animals and work best in packs. Packs succeed because members of the group depend on one another to survive.

.

.

𝐎ur brains works much like a dogs in that we need each other as much as they need us. We are committed and devoted to those that show us the same, coming from the heart and not because they have to.

.

.

𝐘OLO is an acronym for “You only live once” this mentality will not take you far in a pack. The pack behavior is a survival mechanism of sorts, dogs keep their packs small and workable. We too should learn from this

.

.

𝘼nimal experts believe a pack mentality is a huge reason dogs are loyal to us, being committed and devoted to the team.

.

.

𝐋ead your dog, lead your pack and you’ll be viewed as the head or “Alpha” and if they view you as the head they’ll respect and follow your lead. Dogs don’t just love a good cuddle, they know loyalty will keep them alive. It’s funny how being loyal to those that care can make a difference in your life.

Kids always want help out on walks with our dogs but they’re a few things that should be established before doing so. Speaking to your children about responsibilities and positive pet ownership is the first thing you’d should do.

.

.

Suggestions for a positive walk with your dog and children. An adult should always accompany children, avoiding busy streets, with parks or an open area like parking lots being ideal. In training your dog to walk with a child correctly it is best to begin with a two (2) leash approach on the dog, one leash for the handler and one for the child, giving them a feeling of being in control.

.

.

Avoid retractable leashes for they can be difficult for a child to walk a dog with and difficult to use as serious injuries can occur if fingers were to become entwined. On walks it’s best to teach the child to avoid other dogs. Your dog might be gentle and social but you don’t know how the other persons dog is. This can help avoid possible dangerous situation.

.

.

Initially keep walks short and sweet, as the child and dog becomes more comfortable with each other, the length and time of a walk can increase. It’s important to teach children to watch their dogs breathing from walks. Dogs can get tired and over exert themselves to make their owners happy but this can lead to deadly consequences depending on the breed. Therefore teaching to notice the signs can make a difference.

.

.

Keys signs are: heavy breathing, purple/blue gums, lethargy, eyes rolling behind their head, feeling that you have to drag the dog. It’s imperative to note not to give a dog water or food after a long walk as this can contribute to bloat (gastric dilatation volvulus) Bloat happens when a dogs stomach fills with gas, with food or fluid mixing to expand.

.

.

In most cases the dogs stomach will rotate or twis. Let the dog cool down at least 15 mins before allowing them to drink. Lastly, teach children to pay attention to the road laws. Where to cross, respecting stop signs, obeying lights, etc.

I don’t know the year this picture was taken but it caught my attention. It’s safe to say early 1900’s? What’s important to note is that this picture was most likely taken during a time that some of the greatest fighting dogs that lived were around, bred by “bulldoggers” that kept to themselves and hardly would have dealt with anyone from the public.

.

.

What is known about “old timers” is they hardly bred nor studded their dogs for money, nor did they sell to the general public. They shared or traded dogs with each other since to them this was a competition of sorts, a sport where dogs were the players that they loved and respected, the same way we cherish our pets today.

.

.

I know this may sound foreign to those that view “dog fighting” as cruel and inhumane but it was a part of history, American Pit Bull terrier history that is today a marker of the breed. I’m in no way perpetuating dog fighting, but relaying to the reader that at one time this breed held the respect of everyone from politicians to presidents to celebrities and the general public.

.

.

What has changed are the people who own the breed and the media circus whom perpetuates a despise of them. I’d rather not use cliches but make things clear for those that don’t understand, “educate yourself before your discriminate”

.

.

With all that said, this picture features several dogs with handlers holding them side by side and obviously the dogs are not bothered by the presence of the other dog. I may catch some flak for this post but I don’t care, it’s how I feel and love and respect the breed through good and bad times.
