When I began training dogs (30 years ago now 🤔 WoW) I choose to work with working dogs, mainly the “rare breeds” or what is now called the “exotics” because most dog trainers didn’t know about the breeds or were too scared to work with them.
.
.

I’ve had the privilege to have owned and trained almost every “rare” breed of dog in the world. I came to learn of the Cane Corso around 1990-91ish working a Belmonte bred dog (old time Cane Corso people would know of them) and eventually owning a few over the years to.
.
.

I write this since I’m often asked “do you train all breeds of dogs?” Yes I do train every breed of dogs and for almost every behavioral issue imaginable but the rare breeds and working type dogs will always be my favorites….

During the mid 19th century with the Industrial Revolution in full swing, middle class families began keeping domesticated dogs and cats as pets rather than dogs bred for working and/or a purpose.
.
.
Up to that point, the common households gave little consideration to the animals they owned. So a dogs diet consisted of whatever an owner could spare. Potatoes, bread, knuckle bones, cabbage or whatever leftovers they were.
.
.
Around 1860 a businessman by the name of James Spratt saw dogs being fed leftover biscuits from a ship and an idea was born. With a mix of wheat meals, vegetables, beetroot and beef blood the first commercially-prepared pet food was introduced to meet the new market demand of middle class families.
.
.
Using the current nutritional knowledge of the time period, around 1890 a British company took over Mr. Spratt’s formulas and productions sending the business overseas to the U.S. and the commercial dog food craze began to take shape.
.
.
Bet you didn’t know
.
.
A common meat source to purchase in the early 20th century was HORSE meat, as many working horses would die in the streets, instead of disposing the bodies, they were broken down for feed. Commercial canned dog food company “Ken-L Ration,” was introduced in 1922 and its main ingredient was horse meat, a acceptable ingredient source at the time.

.

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.

Actual and Factual:
.
.

Borzoi are bigger than you think, with adult males standing at least 28 inches and up to 32 inches high at the shoulders and weighing upwards of 100 plus pounds. For a large dog, they eat a relatively small amount compared to another dog their size.
.
.

The Borzoi is a type of sighthound that uses their eyes to find and chase their prey while they hunt. They happen to also be a part of the Hound group that use their noses to locate and follow the scent of prey. Although they are sighthounds, Borzoi can be taught to detect and follow smells
.
.

Lure coursing was created to allow sight hounds like the Borzoi to compete in simulated hunting situations.The course consists of a zigzag path of at least 500 yards with a motorized line-and-pulley system which pulls a plastic lure, usually made of strips of white garbage bags, and the dogs are released to run after it.
.
.

Borzoi’s are fast, very fast running and reaching speeds up 40mph. The breed is a relatively quiet breed, somewhat cat-like in its personality. Lastly the breed is somewhat popular ranking at 99th on AKC most popular list.

Have you’ve ever wonder why puppies brea…

Have you’ve ever wonder why puppies breath smells the way it does? It begins with a healthy puppy and a hearty dose of its mother’s milk. The lactose in her milk smells sweet and digest easily. The digestive enzymes in your puppy’s stomach breaks down the proteins in her milk which adds to the sweet aroma. Some VETERINARIANS believe that puppy breath may be the result of its esophagus developing.
.
.

If a puppy has bad breath, then it could indicate a serious health problem. The first thing a veterinarian would look at is their teeth. In adult dogs, a problem like gum disease and impacted teeth could lead to bad breath but since a puppy’s teeth are still developing, it’s highly unlikely a foul odor is the result of a dental problem. Checking and cleaning your puppy’s mouth is a good habit to begin while young as they usually don’t like being bothered with when they’re older.
.
.

Intestinal Parasites is another common cause of bad breath. Worms can be passed from the mother to their young through pregnancy and through their milk. Indications of parasites are vomiting, diarrhea, lack of weight gain, brittle hair and coughing. Puppies should be treated and dewormed as early as 5 weeks. A severe worm infestation can cause death.
.
.

Coprophagia is the term, its when dogs eat their own stool. A stage in a pups development is using their mouths much like a person use their hands to touch, feel and learn everything about the world around them. This can possibly lead to why some dogs continue to eat their stool as they get older. This habit will usually go away as the pup matures but some pups can continue the same way a child would suck on a thumb if not stopped by a parent.

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 show them what’s right and over look the mistake, we are at fault for procrastinating 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 those 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.

Jumping is a common complaint when it comes to…

Jumping is a common complaint when it comes to dog ownership. When you come home from a long day of work, your dog incessantly jumps happy to see you or god forbid you’re all dressed up to go to a party and your dog jumps on you and now your wardrobe and possibly night is ruined. Let alone having company over and your dog doesn’t know how to act and begins jumping on them the minute they walk in and you wonder how all this began.
.
.

What’s funny is that it could have all been resolved when your dog was a puppy and you played a major role in perpetuating the behavior and didn’t know it. When your dog was a puppy and he came to greet you, he jumped on your leg and you began petting and playing with him unintentionally cultivating this behavior and with every praise it you reinforced what would eventually become a nuisance.
.
.

Now that we’ve identify where you went wrong and for those new puppy owners reading this firstly don’t allow your puppy to jump on you. Instead, teach the puppy to sit before being petted. Continue to reinforce the SIT command every time you greet your puppy. After some time, he’ll understand in order to get praised or your attention, he must sit first. Continue with the same plan when he greets anyone else, family members, friends and strangers always making sure that he SITS before he is acknowledged. Before you know it, he’ll get the hang of it and it will become second nature to SIT instead of jumping when you come home.
