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.

.

.

In the end it doesn’t matter how much dedication, handwork and passion you have towards being a great dog trainer, Vision is what separates a good to great trainer.
What separates you from the others is staying true to yourself and maintaining your vision.

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?

Being it’s Veterans Day, I salute the men and women that has and still serve our country. Being a dog trainer I want to also thank our dogs of past and present for their services as well.

.

.

So to tell this story about the medical center laboratories of the Veterans Administration who we find to be embroiled in a controversy involving the mistreatment of canines shouldn’t be the day but it’s important for all to know.

.

.

I read news reports last week that found the VA continuing to conduct invasive experiments on dogs as part of its medical research program, resulting in the euthanasia of the animals. According to these reports, experiments at four VA facilities, including in Milwaukee, where researchers are removing parts of the dogs’ brains to test neurons that control breathing prior to killing them by lethal injection, and in Cleveland, where doctors are measuring dogs’ cough reflexes by placing electrodes on their spinal cords. When done, the cords are severed, killing the dogs. 

.

.

It is important in the name of science for testing and experiments to be done and the VA is not alone in using dogs in the name of scientific research. Im not totally against the practice as it’s critical to medical breakthroughs, but to simply mistreat the animals as collateral isn’t a cool thing.

.

.

On this Veterans Day weekend let’s think of the men and women as well as the dogs that serve our country and bring some attention to this matter urging the VA medical staff to change their approach and better care of the dogs through positive prevention studies designed to keep animals and people healthy, and advocating in any work it funds that no animals are harmed, there is no induction of illness or injury, and they are not euthanized.

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.

The different breeds of dogs that served different purposes in our lives was the inspiration behind this quote. Not every breed is the perfect one but every dog has a special thing about them.

.

Share that special quality about your dog and what it is to you.

I’ve been blessed to have owned and/or trained every dog breed I’ve ever wanted to. The French Mastiff or #doguedebordeaux was one of my favorites breeds to own. I had two (2) males that were athletic as any big dog and also excelled in bite work – Reno and Slob. I’ve yet to see one in 30 years that would actually work as hard as the ones I owned.
.
.

I must add that owning these majestic dog breeds has only helped me better understand the differences of behavior from breed to breed as well as gain an overall knowledge in dealing with each one with the respect that comes with ownership of the different breeds.
.
.

#throwbackthursday share any interesting stories of your dogs, here is mine….
.
.

I noticed bags of dog food would be raided and slobbered by one of the dogs but I couldn’t figure out which would do it since they were all in kennels. One day I looked out the window and noticed Reno popping his gate open, go into the bag of food, eat a few large gulps of dog food then retreat back into his kennel, all the while closing the latch behind him. Smh this guy was too clever for his own self.
