If this statement is true, why wouldn’t a trainer apply this same knowledge to you, the client?
Dog trainers will vary in their ideas of the proper age to begin obedience training and foundation work with a dog. Some may even call it their “method” but the truth is, every dog is different and the situation you may find yourself training your dog may differ in age as well as when you acquired the dog. Also please note: IT IS NEVER TOO LATE TO TRAIN A DOG.

.
.

It has been proven that children learn at a much rapid pace than an adult so a new language to a child, besides any linguistic ideals, will set as their young brain is like a sponge absorbing anything thrown its way. The same can be said for a puppy.

.
.

Any trainer bringing home a puppy for the first time will begin to set rules and scheduling commitments for their puppy. They will begin housebreaking procedures, leash breaking, proper eating etiquette and solve any behavioral issues that may arise on a daily basis. So why shouldn’t YOU, yourself start with your dog early on too. Don’t allow a trainer dictate what you know is best for your dog, it’s only common sense.

I made decision to buy a working dog, so I called my friend @stevethedogtrainer to see what he thought I should get, so after thinking about it I decided to buy a Belgian Malinois. I met @stevethedogtrainer 15 years ago an I’ve been lucky to have a friend, trainer and support of @stevethedogtrainer over the years.

.
.

He has an amazing ability to clarify his methods and translate them into layman’ terms. He has helped many people for regional, national and international events getting there dogs to perform reliably and successfully. Also being a multi breed competitor I truly appreciate @stevethedogtrainer ability to work with any breed in an unbiased manner giving everything he does 💯percent. I don’t know of “any” other school or instructor(s) that has the gift and passion for teaching when it comes to dogs combined with years of collected experience and knowledge that @stevethedogtrainer have!

Steve called me and said I have a breeder that has a litter coming due in Dec 2016. Steve described the parent pedigree, then I said I want a puppy from that litter Now my little boy Jagger is 4 months and doing great! Below is a video of steve and Jagger doing some bite work also notice how calm Jagger is on the bite and how steve interact with Jagger “amazing”! Thanks a million @stevethedogtrainer

As a trainer, one wants to help the client “train” what behavioral issue they face with their dog, solve them and we’re all happy.

.
.

It is when they take what they’ve learn to levels that compare to those that have been “training” for years and make it look easy. @jager_the_malinois and Terry has come a long way and I’m truly proud of my friend and his quest to title Jaeger to his SCH title.
.

Here is a clip of where he’s at which his obedience, I will keep everyone posted when we’re ready to trial him which is coming up real soon. Enjoy the video and as always, your comments are welcome.

Pictured is Niko, a performance bred American Bulldog out of Predator (a hybrid standard) and Crazy Maizee (of Williamson/MactheMasher lines)
.
.

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.

Editorial . . In the book, Dogs of All Nation…

Editorial
.
.

In the book, Dogs of All Nations (1915) the German Shepherd is described as a medium-sized dog (25 kg / 55 lbs) In less than 100 years the German Shepherd has evolved into a large (38kg / 85lbs) barrel chested, rear angulated with a sloping back dog which through these physical changes has emerged physical and genetic issues.
.
.

“Form follows function” The principle behind this is a dogs physical form should allow proper movement intended for function or purpose without impediment.
.
.

Now this may sound intellectual for some but what its simply implying is today’s “SHOW DOG” in AMERICA aren’t properly bred to be able to run, work or jump, etc due to the attention in conformation versus that of work ability.
.
.

Understand the SV, The Verein für deutsche Schäferhunde (Society for German Shepherd Dogs), abbreviated as SV the parent club of the German Shepherd, who’s responsible for the breed standard emphasizes temperament, durability and overall soundness.
.
.

In Europe, in order to receive permission to breed a dog, the SV places restrictions in that said dog for breeding must attain a working title (Sch, IPO) or an AD title (endurance test consisting of a 12.5 mile run) and a temperament/companion title (BH) as well as passing with free of Dysplasia (HD free) on all joints before it’s considered to be bred.
.
.

Question: Have you’ve heard of anything as such in the states that pertains to the “SHOW RING” placing “mandatories” for dogs to earn titles before breeding? In Europe this is how it’s done, I’m for adopting the same guidelines for all Show and Working dogs. If more breeders in the states integrate this into their breeding programs, it is when we’ll see healthier, more functional dogs on a consistent basis.

“It takes time, sometimes years and years of effort to make something look effortless for a single moment”
.
.

People see a dog do HEEL work like this, walking like a soldier watching their handler attentively and instantly WANT their dog to do this as well. What’s not fully understood is the work needed and the follow up to achieve this.
.
.

This is attributed to training of the highest level and having a dog meet you at the peak. A well trained dog comes with consistency, training and patience. It must be done over and over again, correctly at any cost, obviously without hurting the animal.
.
.

Anything in life you want whether it be a house, car or mentality must come first with a vision, hard work and consistency – doing it over and over again til the wheels fall off.
.

@dogtrainertoronto wrote a great write up on “METHODS AND TOOLS” used for training that I’d like everyone to read as he hits it on the head when it comes to this topic.

I found this picture of myself and probably the best dog I’ve had the privilege of working, Jaws of Stone Predator. This pic was taken around ‘91 or ’92 at the Western Regionals. I was 16 years old, decoying a sanctioned DVG’s Schutzhund regionals trial.
.
.

In the past 20 years the American Bulldog has seen an explosion of owners and breeders that have taken the baton of what we started 25 plus years ago and has done wonderful things with them especially in the performance world.
.
.

Just a bit of history and facts: Predator (pictured) was the first AB titled in the sport of Schutzhund. His son Ike was the second, my dog Hammer third and Niko another Predator son was forth. Swipe left and you’ll see the dogs in that order) The very first AB’s ever tested for Hip Dysplasia through OFA were those dogs listed. In fact at the time, OFA (Orthopedic Foundation for Animals) had never rated an x-ray of an AB and had to use Rottweilers as a comparison to rate the dogs hips against one another.
.
.

It is safe to say that at the time we were the only performance HOT (Handler, Owner, Trainers) of the AB’s and I’m damn proud of that. How many people can say that they were a part of making history, on that note I’ll end with a saying that was common with AB breeders back then.
