When you’re happy, your dogs happy. When your sad, your dog is hanging around next to you wondering what’s wrong.
.
.

But what else do they have to do but watch and study your every moves observing closely for the signals that your mood has changed. Humans use language (words) as their queue but a dog being around us all the time are able to see our body language, change in tone and smells to know something’s changed (mood)
They have perfected the ability to read our body language.
.
.

An example of a dog’s understanding of body language is how they always seem to find that one person in a room full of people who doesn’t like dogs. That person would tense up, change their body posture and stare that dogs are immediately attracted to the person’s behavior and view it as a “challenge” putting the dog in a defense mode to check them out.

Cheat sheet.
.
.

Any trainer will begin housebreaking, leash work, house rules and scheduling the minute they bring home their puppy. So why wouldn’t you train your puppy from the beginning?
.
.

Can an old dog learn new tricks? Of course they can, but when will you begin training them “these tricks?”
.
.

Training begins with the first “sit” Train them right and consistently making sure that the dog understands what is expected of them. In the end, no ones to blame but yourself when the dog develops behavioral issues that could of been avoided by doing it right the first time.

In the next few posts, I will be reintroducing the list of Top 10 Guard dog breeds and the reason why I choose them. This is the breakdown as to the criteria that I used for that list.
.
.

With 300 plus breeds of purpose to choose from it was difficult as I’m partial to many of them. Many on this list are dogs that I’ve personally had experience working/training/owning.
.

.
The focus of this “list” is to educate a future owner of a “guard dog” and to share my knowledge and personal experience of each breed so they can better decipher which breed is better suit for there purpose.
.
.
CRITERIA: 
.
.

Physical; with size varying from 40 to 200 plus lbs. for a typical guard dog. It would be the discretion of the potential owner on the decision to choose.
.
.
Drive; the majority of “guard dogs” rely on “Defense” drive, defined as “A means of protecting something from attack” Defense comes down to a response called – Fight or Flight.
.

.
A dog’s self-confidence in a stressful situation dictates what he’s gonna do when the pressure is on. A dog that exhibits a strong (FIGHT) drive will stand his ground (ideal for a guard dog), whereas a dog lacking a strong defensive (FIGHT) drive will be unsure in the situation choosing to run (FLIGHT) and react cowardly.
.
.

Aptitude; the word STUBBORN is attached to many of the breeds listed. In the breakdown I took into consideration their trainability as well as sociability with his master and family.
.
.

Overall; intimidation factor, history and stigma all played a role as well with my experience with the breeds.
.
.

Humans do a fantastic job at making things more complicated than it should be. Ownership of a dog should not be stressful.
.

Invest the time to find a good trainer and do your part. Start young, be committed and have fun. Mistakes will happen, but learn from them instead of fretting from them.

28 years of experience in the dog business and I’ve yet to meet a (perfect) dog or person. When your dog makes a mistake, stop and teach them so they learn from it.
.
.

When we don’t do this and over look the mistake, we are at fault for procrastinating and for not correcting when it happens as well as sending the wrong signal to your dog that making mistakes has no consequences.
.
.

We all (dogs and humans) make mistakes. That’s life. It’s how we handle mistakes is what’s important. All we can do is turn them into learning experiences and use them to grow.
.
.

Dogs will make mistakes, but his owner will do more.

My clients will attest to this. When I show up, dogs all of the sudden whip themselves into shape.
.
Dogs show respect by how they interact with you. Submissive body language, licking and grooming you are signs a dog recognizes you as a leader and respects you.
.
Ex: A dog that runs ahead of you passing through a door first is being disrespectful and doesn’t see you as a leader.
.
As opposed to a dog who would stay back (calmly) and await for you to go through the door first with him walking behind you is showing you respect.

Dogs don’t understand human created languages but words or rather sounds of those languages. After hearing the word/sound “sit” many times, a dog will eventually associate it with a behavior.
.
.
An average dog identifies 150 or so words by association with some dogs learning 250 or more. A Border Collie named Chaser takes the cake, it is reported that he knows 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 “treat” can be said in different languages yielding the same result.

Dogs sɪᴛ before being fed knowing if they do, food would be rewarded.
.

While playing ball, dogs learn to sɪᴛ when retrieving knowing that the ball will be thrown again.
.
.
While walking coming to a sɪᴛ signifies a stop to your dog, only to resume walking once again.
.
.
Since dogs often repeat actions that are self rewarding, he’ll master the idea that sɪᴛ equals good things.

There is a distinct difference between a dog I train for protection and having someone else train your dog.
.
.
If an intruder enters your house, the dog trained by someone else will bark to let you know someone’s there.
.
.
If your dog is trained by me, you’ll won’t hear a bark, because you’ll hear the intruder yelling for help.
.
.
28 years of experience training dogs so I can hear the bad guy yell. That’s real conversation for yo ass!
