I’m not that trainer with a training facility or sponsorship’s. I’m that guy that relies on my talent and my dog leash.

Received news of the passing of my friend and mentor, Dr. Robert LaBounty. Bob as he was affectionately known was a huge part of my learning of animal medicine and a positive influence in my life til this day. I’ve always held this man with great respect and that surely won’t change.

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 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.

Did you know?

.

•Historically ear cropping and tail docking was done for practical reasons, such as avoiding accidental amputations in the course of work (minimizing a potential injury)

*
*

•WAR dogs engaged in battle were easy targets for maiming. Therefore removal of ears and tails was done to lessen the chances.

*

*
•Fighting dogs ears were trimmed so to not allow an opponent an advantage in a pit.

*
*

•Breeders of certain breeds began the removal of ears and tails for cosmetic purposes to suit a breed standard. Even today, the American Kennel Club (AKC) deems the practices as “integral to defining and preserving breed character” in certain breeds

*
*

•Yet what many don’t know about the history was it also indicated if a dog was of working stock and not a pet, in which the dog was subjected to taxation.

@dieselthebeauceron is growing, swipe left and see how heavy he is at 1 year old. Beauceron, Berger de Beauce or however you might want to call them are big Shepherd type dogs of France.

.

.

Many mistake them for a cross between a Rottweiler and German Shepherd but obviously they’re not and is considered an old breed by today’s standards. Hey Diesel, I know you want me to come down ASAP, I’m calling your Hoomen tomorrow to nail down a date this month! I will repost a write up on the breed on my next posting for those that want to learn more about the breed.
