The perfect crop can be the perfect flop! Ear …

The perfect crop can be the perfect flop! Ear cropping can come with mixed emotions. Some think it’s inhumane while others wouldn’t recognize a breed unless its ears were cropped. A step by step of what you should know about cropping your pets ears.

First make sure pup is up to date on shots and ideally be between 9 and 12 weeks of age, older dogs can be cropped but it’s more complicated. Before surgery, be sure to withhold food for 12 hrs as it can cause vomiting and aspiration (inhaling of its vomit)

A qualified Veterinarian will go over the style of crop and which will best fit your dog. During surgery, ears will bleed as they are quite vascular. Once cut and styled the ears are sutured. A couple hours out of surgery, your pup will be ready to go home where the real care begins. Ears can bleed for a few days after surgery. They will be sore and painful to touch or when your pup attempts to scratch at the sutures.

Throughly removing scabs will speed up the recovery process by half the time. Ears can be cleaned using peroxide, drenching on a paper towel and wiping the scabs off. Once scabs are removed, some bleeding will happen. Use a triple antibiotic ointment prescribed by your vet to moisten and protect the dogs ears. Missing a day of cleaning can cause excess scabbing. Genetics plays a role as well as length and style of ear crop. Breeds like Pit Bulls and Cane Corso will stand faster than a Great Dane.

This part takes a lot of patience,
taping of the ears. Taping begins once sutures are off, the process of taping can take upwards to a couple of months depending on style and breed. Taping should only be done by a professional, if the taping is too tight irreversible problems will occur, if done too loose, they’ll never never stand up correctly.

If the tape gets wet, take them off immediately as an infection can happen. If they are coming off, take them all the way off and take the dog to be re-taped.

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.

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.

Most dog trainers repeat shit that successful trainers have figured out. This is for those that want are interested in becoming a trainer themselves.

.

.

It really doesn’t matter how many dogs you’ve trained, in the end dedication and hard work is what’s needed. It is also key that you commit time to your craft as you are only as good as your last dog.

.

.

Passion is important. Passion allows one to overcome the challenges that inevitably occur training ones dog. If you’re not passionate about your clients, their dogs and your craft you will not be able to accomplish what you hope to accomplish.

.

.

In the end it doesn’t matter how much dedication, handwork and passion you have towards being a great dog trainer, Vision is what separates a good to great trainer.
What separates you from the others is staying true to yourself and maintaining your vision.

History has a weird way of repeating itself. The Extreme, Exotics and Micro style Bully dogs are a product of trying to produce a dog smaller and more extreme than the norm.

.

.

This has already happened in dog history, and I’m sure it will happen again. Take a look at the picture and can anyone tell me what breed went through it before the Pit Bull?

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?
