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.

When does your female dog begin her heat cycle…

When does your female dog begin her heat cycle?

.

.

A female dog typically enters her “heat cycle” or Estrus twice a year, starting usually at 6 months of age with larger breeds beginning their cycle as late as a year old or later. Once a cycle begins, on average last 3 weeks.

.

.

What to look for:

.

.

The ProEstrus is the beginning stage, one will begin to see the females Vulva swell. It’s common for the bitch to lick herself in that area and male dogs will begin to react to her by sniffing her as she’s producing a hormonal scent. She will begin to produce a bloody discharge, this is all normal.

.

.

One will probably notice the bitch would become flirty with dogs and “Flag” whenever another dog comes around her. Flagging is when she raises her tail and hind quarters up high to attract male dogs for breeding.

.

.

If the idea is to breed your female, between day 8th thru 12th the discharge lightens to a pinkish color, her Vulva softens and her eggs are released from the ovaries.

.

.

Note: if you do not plan to breed your bitch, you’ll notice her discharge look bloody again. Don’t worry, shes not in heat again. This time is called the Anestrus

.

.

Lastly, please note: MALE DOGS DO NOT COME INTO HEAT. It is biologically impossible. A male dog is able and ready to mate at any time.

Last week I had a sort of impromptu lesson set up at a park in the valley for some of my clients. Worked on issues that we can’t address working individually, with dogs and owners switching up helping each other.

.

.

On a future session, I’ll invite a discriminate few who’s interested in a meet/greet regarding training their dog. If interested shoot me your name, breed and issue you’re having with your dog.

Outside of Italy a breed of dog is still used …

Outside of Italy a breed of dog is still used as a pet, watchdog, livestock guardian, a working dog. The Dogo Sardo is rare and literally unknown outside Italy rarely seen outside of it’s native region. The breed is so valued to the people of Sardinia from where it was developed that they refuse to sell puppies to foreigners. The breed today continues to serve as a Breed of Purpose.

.

.

For hundreds of years pups born and raised in Sardinia as stated above hardly were sold and because of this, its been difficult to determine the genetics of the breed. It is believed to some certainty that their offspring is of the same genetic root as dogs of the past with similar features that existed in the middle ages, sharing a legacy with the Neapolitan Mastiff, Cane Corso and others.

.

.

Although considered a purebred in its own right, the breed is not recognized by the Federation Cynologique Internationale (FCI) and because of this no breed standard has been placed nor written rules to regulate its characteristics.

.

.

Sharing similarities to its cousin the Cane Corso, its body is thinner, athletic and muscular, with a powerful neck and distinctive Cane head with a longer muzzle. Ears are usually cropped, tail is optional. As previously stated, their is no known standard for the Dogo Sardo, but experts agree that dogs have an average height of 23 to 26inches at the shoulders and a weight of 60 to 90lbs but its not set in stone.

.

.

Its coat is short and very thick (comparable to a boar) and evenly striped in various shades resembling a boar, but rarely white. The appearance of the Dogo Sardo denotes elegance, power and wildness at the same time.

CONTROL; the ability to manage, influence and/or direct a dog. This is an example of how you train, teach, imprint, work (pick a word) to gain the CONTROL of a dog.

.

.

It doesn’t matter if it’s a man or woman, young or old, it comes down to training with CONTROL.

The Yorkshire Terrier originated in Yorkshire,…

The Yorkshire Terrier originated in Yorkshire, a county in northern England. In the mid-19th century, workers from Scotland came to Yorkshire in search of work and brought with them several different varieties of small Scottish terriers.

.

.

Originally it was three (3) dogs, bred from Scotch terriers (note: meaning dogs from Scotland, not today’s Scottish terriers) by chance that the eventual creation of the “Yorkshire Terrier” was done by these same Scottish workers, working in the cotton mills. This may sound strange as it wasn’t someone dedicating time and effort to shape and influence the breed but regular workers and the right breeds of dogs in the factories. The name Yorkshire Terrier was given to them on account of their being improved so much in Yorkshire, England that the name stuck.

.

.

Not long after the Yorkshire Terrier was introduced into North America. In 1885 the first Yorkshire Terrier was registered with the American Kennel Club (AKC) Yorkies were a popular pet and show dog in both America and England. The creation of the Yorkie was heavily influenced and grew during the Victorian era and as Americans embraced Victorian customs, so too did they embrace the Yorkshire Terrier.

.

.

The breed’s popularity dipped in the 1940s, when the percentage of small breed dogs registered fell to an all-time low of 18% of total registrations. Smoky, a Yorkshire Terrier and famous war dog from World War II, is credited with beginning a renewal of interest in the breed. The American Kennel Club ranked the Yorkshire Terrier as the 6th most popular pure-breed in the United States of America in 2012 and 2013.

Actual and factual:

.

.

The Yorkie is a relatively new breed, originally bred in the mid-1800’s. At first the breed was used as an exterminator to hunt rats in mines and clothing mills.

.

.

The Victorian Era changed the view of the Yorker as a ratter to a prized pet. Both the upper class and Royalty placed great value on the breed because of its small stature and big personality.

.

.

The Yorkie’s coat is silky and fine (like human hair) perfectly straight and (preferably) with a high sheen and they don’t shed. In the show ring, the breeds hair is grown out and it is not uncommon for hair to grow to 2ft or more in length.

.

.

Possibly one of the first Therapy dogs was a Yorkshire terrier found in a foxhole in New Guinea during WWII. An American soldier named Bill Wynne found her and named her Smoky. The two traveled through New Guinea, and she immediately began to help with the war effort. Thanks to her small size and obedience, she was able to run through pipes and string communication wires under a former Japanese airstrip. Without her help, soldiers would have had to dig trenches and expose themselves to enemy fire.

.

.

During and after the war, Smoky toured hospitals throughout the Pacific and the United States, working as a therapy dog for wounded soldiers. One can visit a monument dedicated to her memory where she passed away in Cleveland, Ohio.
