Socialization is an everyday thing with dogs b…

Socialization is an everyday thing with dogs but the most important time to begin imprinting your puppy for YOUR life is the minute you bring them home. It’s widely accepted that between 4 to 12 weeks of age, puppies absorb their environment immensely. It’s crucial to carefully introduce different types of stimuli every day to your puppy and always making sure that it’s a positive experience.
.
.

These isolated socialization efforts can and will make a difference in your dog’s future outlook of life. In time with different experiences and as the puppy begins to become comfortable familiarizing with new things, they’ll begin to take on new encounters like different places, loud noises, objects, new people, shopping carts, smells and other animals with stride.
.
.

The key to socialization is to get to it while the puppy is young. Many pups can become socially handicapped if socializing begins after a certain time, usually 14 weeks of age but it depends on the dog, breed and how you approach the job at that time. It’s not to say that a pup can’t still be socialized but in many respects, the job is harder. At this stage a pup not only is learning basic of commands but has already established other inappropriate behaviors that need to be undone firstly before moving forward in positive socializing. In any case, the best thing to do with your puppy is to approach it in a preventative manner.

.
.

In a previous posting I explained the different bloodlines of American Bulldogs and of how the lines made up the breed as we know today. Predator (Niko’s sire) was the first Schutzhund titled American Bulldog in the history of the breed and of the sport. His son Niko (pictured) was the most titled American Bulldog at that time.
.
.

Maizee (Niko’s dam) was a full sister to my dog Hammer who I personally competed and titled in the sport of Schutzhund. As a team we were the youngest and at the time only the 3rd American Bulldog to be titled in Schutzhund in the history of the sport.

ᴇᴅɪᴛᴏʀɪᴀʟ
.
.

In August 2000, the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) published their “Law Enforcement Canine Model Policy”. This was the first time in the history of police canine where a law enforcement association recommended a training philosophy of “bark and hold”. Their model policy stated “Training and deployment of police canines shall employ the “guard and bark” rather than the “guard and hold” method”. IACP has re-issued this model policy in September 2001. IACP still remains the only law enforcement association that has recommended this training philosophy.
.
.

The idea of the hold and bark has its importance in evaluating temperament and character of the dog in the areas of courage and fighting drives for a sport such as Schutzhund, but can be enforced for civilian use if more departments trained for it. The problem with law enforcement is that most Departments view it as “sport bullshit” and not viewed with enough importance, as their views are “if the perpetrator runs, he should get bit”
.
.

I can see how it can be scary for a criminal who is running from a dog to try to listen to the officers/handlers command to stop moving when a dog is upon them and it’s not always that easy for a dog to distinguish if a criminal is trying to stop in live action. Therefore its probably not going to happen in the majority of cases but if more departments enforce the rule and dogs are taught correctly then the chances of departments being sued can and should go down over time.

This is when you know you’re either dealing with a novice or a dumbass. This way of thinking is not uncommon, some people believe that a dog must be mean and aggressive to make a good protection dog. This idea is so far from the truth.
.
.

If a protection dog is there to protect you, then he should be there next to you the whole time, where ever you are, with whom ever you might be around whether that be humans, dogs, horses, it doesn’t matter.
.
.

Now if we were to think the way some of those people believe then your protection dog wouldn’t be there to protect you. He’ll be too aggressive to handle and would growl and try to bite anyone that is around you. Human, dog, horse, you get it. In a nutshell you’ll have to kennel him.
.
.

So this deceives the point of raising and training a dog in that manner. I felt sorry for the pup as he was a friendly little guy. I’ll write up a better explanation in the coming post. In the meantime your thoughts and comments on this would be much appreciated….

In continuance of my latest post regarding soundness that stems from straight lines in conformation, the American Bulldog pictured is a great example of a well structured, sound and straight dog for his breed.
.
.

As an enthusiast of dogs, especially American Bulldogs I feel obligated to encourage and educate breeders to produce dogs that are physically sound for performance and to create the breed standard off a performance type instead of what the show ring is insisting today.
.
.

Conformation is important, it’s the structure of the dog and half of what impacts the proper performance dog, temperament/drive is the other but without proper structure your dogs ability in doing its job is impacted.
.
.

When I evaluate a performance dog, I look at the dogs rear end as it is their motor, where all the strength and power is generated and the most important structural point. A dog that is weak in the rear with a nice front end is like owning a Big Rig with a 4 cylinder engine to motor it around town.
.
.

If all the power is in the back then whats needed is a straight legged but well angulated and balanced front with strong shoulders to guide the dog in the direction and to accept the power coming from behind.
.
.

Lastly the ability to stop quickly and effortlessly, accelerate with power and turn on a dime will serve the dog well. With a combination of performance and temperament traits, your working dog will take you places.

What four lines can tell us about soundness in conformation
.
.

Properly using the Four Lines of Balance requires observing a dog in person or using a photo of the dog in the correct position. Either mentally or actually drawing lines in a photo to recreate the four lines of balance.
.
.

The first illustration is a young American Pit Bull Terrier in the correct position to be examined. His hocks and front legs are perpendicular to the ground and the photo is straight from the side, level with the dog not looking down on it.
.
.

The first line is Line “A” line drawn on the dog’s top line. If you aren’t sure exactly where the dog’s top line begins, draw the line beginning past the head, beginning from its shoulder. The dog’s entire head must be above this line when held in a natural position.
.
.

Line “B” is the single most important line. This line starts at the dog’s pro-sternum and runs directly back past the end of the dog’s body. The pro-sternum is that pointy lump on the front of the dog’s chest. The pro-sternum almost always indicates the position of the dog’s point of shoulder. It is common for the pro-sternum line to be placed far too low on the dog’s body, so be aware of placing so the line divides the dog in a perfect half and balance.
.
.

For Line “C” imagine a line dropped from the dog’s point of rear to the ground. With the dog’s hocks absolutely perpendicular to the ground, the line should drop to the front of the dog’s rear toes.
.
.

Line “D” is drawn up the front leg of the dog, with the legs perpendicular to the ground. The balanced dog will have its entire neck in front of this line.
