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.

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.

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?

The same way a smile from a human is a simple …

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.
