The egg-shaped head is not a product of evolution as some believe, but actually man-made, a modern product of many years of selective breeding. Mr. James Hink’s, the father of the Bull terrier wanted a leggier dog, full of stamina and better breathing. I don’t think he’d be happy with the dog today.

.
.

Bull terriers born in the early 1900’s had a head type that would be considered suicide to a breeding program by today’s standards. In a strange way the head type is still evolving towards an even more EGG or “Extreme” head type. If one does research, they’ll find that over the decades beginning in the 50’s changes in head type with how AKC has pushed its narrative for this extreme head has come into play and has change towards the more EGG shape.

.
.

Do you think today people buy a dog like that? I’d believe they would if no one ever saw the EGG shape but that has changed the game.

.
.

Something else to keep in mind, dogs of that era were very good dogs and winning in the show ring without the EGG shaped head present, this is a snippet of the standard that AKC is pushing on todays head type.

.
.

Head – The head should be long, strong and deep, right to the end of the muzzle, but not coarse.  VIEWED FROM THE FRONT IT SHOULD BE EGG-SHAPED AND COMPLETELY FILLED, its surface being free from hollows or indentations.  The top of the skull should be almost flat from ear to ear.  The profile should curve gently downwards from the top of the skull to the tip of the nose, which should be black and bent downwards at the tip.  The nostrils should be well developed.  The under-jaw should be strong.

It’s nice to see dogs do tricks and understand the commands when given but what’s often overlooked yet as important is, what is your dogs Temperament.

.
.

Temperament in the dog world is the equivalent of Character in people.

.
.

A person with a good character is one of high integrity, courage, fortitude, honesty and loyalty. These attributes are held by many dogs, the issue is how to find a pet with the right temperament and how to nurture to oblige to human contact.

.
.

Most everyone whom brings home a dog hopes for their pet to have a good temperament but hoping isn’t good enough. Finding the right temperament comes down to firstly asking yourself: what do YOU want and expect from your dog in the first place. From that point, finding a dog that fits that perspective is the second part. Working with the breeder or hiring an experience dog trainer can help you pick out a puppy that best fits your lifestyle. Lastly is nurturing its temperament with training, love and rules.

.
.

This can take time and monetary means but look at it this way, you can spend it wisely early on or spend it later to correct problems.

To create this mastiff two (2) breeds of dogs were crossed but not in the 50/50% sense, more in a 60% to 40% split.

.
.

Note: the crossing of the two breeds could be the simplest breeding idea that man has ever committed to and one which each breed greatly contributed to the creation of the breed.

.

Name the breed…..

The neighborhood I come from, my parents staying on me and the tutelage from the people who helped me be the dogman I am today is my example of what a positive environment can be towards ones success.

.
.

The same can be said for your dog, the training, socialization, rules in the home and affection as well as direction can lead to a much happier, friendlier and healthier life with your dog. Don’t skimp not overlook the little things as those small bad habits eventually turn into big bad habits.

So I’ve been working with Rocky since the day we picked him up. @worldfamouswakeupshow (tech) and I have set him on the right track for obedience, setting the foundation for protection work, taught him to walk a ladder and now we’re teaching him how to swim and dive off the plank…..

.
.

Within the next couple lessons I’ll have him running off that plank….

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.

If life is a game, no one wants to lose. We pr…

If life is a game, no one wants to lose. We pretty much enter endeavors with the idea to win and never go into it to lose. It is in the humans genetic make up to always want to be the best but we can’t help but feel bummed whenever this isn’t the case.

.
.

In all cases we humans deal with loss differently. Some brood and mope while others succumb to defeat and vow never to try again. Then they’re the remaining few that grieves for a little while before dusting ourselves off and go for it again. Whatever may be the case, the way we handle defeat says a lot about us and determines our successes moving forward.

.
.

Like Suga Free said, “in order for me to win, I gotta lose sometimes” not this may seem oxymoronic but there really is something to be gained from losing. Life doesn’t always give us what we want; we win some, we lose some! Our loss is our gain but just as much it’s another person’s loss that can also be our gain. At the end of the day, the Winners circle can only be awarded to one (dog trainer); the best (dog trainer).

.
.

The real reason that most of us don’t deal well with losing is because we believe that our losses are a reflection of who we are. We end up spending a shit load of time beating ourselves up over because we view ourselves as failures or conclude that we aren’t good enough.

.
.

What we need to realize is that there’s a lot to be gained from losing if we embrace our losses with an open mind and allow ourselves to see the lessons they present.

.
.

Just let the losers worry about losing…
