Did you know that a child in the Boy or Girl Scouts can earn a badge for dog care, well they can. A badge of merit for pet care has been around since the early 1900’s and has evolved from First Aid to Animals to Veterinary Medicine as well as Pet Care.

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.

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 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.

A dog can bring protection to your family and property but what most don’t know is that they’re dogs are generally a false sense of security.

.

.

“If your dog hasn’t seen it, you don’t know how they’ll react” is a statement I’ve said over my career, time and time again. Even the most prolific guard dog, if not taught to do the work will more than likely not up show when you most need them.

.

.

This video is of a dog that is beginning to be taught “real world” challenges in the event of a break-in or encounter of a bad guy.

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.
