If your dogs a retriever, does he have to retrieve? If it’s a Pit Bull, does he have to fight? If it’s a Husky, well you get it…..

My new installment to #dogsandpeople series introduces you to @ozzietheshepherd Ozzie’s been through several trainers in his 3 years, all having different ideas, methods and approach in training through his aggression issues.

.

.

Ozzie came from a litter of working and show dogs. Audrey (Oz’s human companion) took a video of her picking from the litter and after reviewing the video she began seeing some behavior and temperament issues and phoned the breeder to see if she can exchange with the other available male whom she thought would be a better fit. The breeder assured her she had made the right choice, stating “all her dogs are good” This is where I tell you, “a breeder will tell you everything you want to hear, to make a sale”

.

.

Throughout Ozzie’s formative months, behavioral and aggression issues kept a stream of trainers (6) shuffling in/out of their lives. The first trainer said Oz was a liability and she should return him to the breeder. At 7 months old, Audrey was faced with returning Oz again but changed her mind again. Audrey enrolled Oz with a 3rd trainer who had a boot camp and while there notified her of a potential buyer for him. Searching for guidance on the right choice, Audrey began to pray and randomly opened her bible to this passage (slide to the right) “I started crying because in my heart I believed this was my sign, and I trusted the good lord” From that day she stuck it out.

.

.

Audrey feels that Ozzie came into her life for a reason and has no regrets of all the work and stress that they’ve been through. “I believe things come into our lives for a reason to learn from or make us stronger to change our ways” says Audrey. “I have learned to be patient and calm because of Ozzie, if you knew me before Ozzie” Personally knowing Oz and hopefully being his last trainer, he is a loyal loving family dog with only a few dog issues but which dog is perfect.

Been a while since we seen @stevethedogtrainer. Today we went in with No OBEDIENCE just let Ozzie be a dog and work on his issues. He is doing really well😀he seen many dogs and didnt react. Only one left is dog approaching head on. And id say we pretty much done on our list of problems. Guys with reactive dogs this doesnt happen overnight it is a work in progress with time work and patience.

Outside of Italy a breed of dog is still used as a pet, watchdog, livestock guardian, a working dog. The Dogo Sardo is rare and literally unknown outside Italy rarely seen outside of it’s native region. The breed is so valued to the people of Sardinia from where it was developed that they refuse to sell puppies to foreigners. The breed today continues to serve as a Breed of Purpose.

.

.

For hundreds of years pups born and raised in Sardinia as stated above hardly were sold and because of this, its been difficult to determine the genetics of the breed. It is believed to some certainty that their offspring is of the same genetic root as dogs of the past with similar features that existed in the middle ages, sharing a legacy with the Neapolitan Mastiff, Cane Corso and others.

.

.

Although considered a purebred in its own right, the breed is not recognized by the Federation Cynologique Internationale (FCI) and because of this no breed standard has been placed nor written rules to regulate its characteristics.

.

.

Sharing similarities to its cousin the Cane Corso, its body is thinner, athletic and muscular, with a powerful neck and distinctive Cane head with a longer muzzle. Ears are usually cropped, tail is optional. As previously stated, their is no known standard for the Dogo Sardo, but experts agree that dogs have an average height of 23 to 26inches at the shoulders and a weight of 60 to 90lbs but its not set in stone.

.

.

Its coat is short and very thick (comparable to a boar) and evenly striped in various shades resembling a boar, but rarely white. The appearance of the Dogo Sardo denotes elegance, power and wildness at the same time.

I can’t tell you how proud I am when I see someone that listened and took notes on training their dogs with me. My boy Robert has @dieselthebeauceron doing things (all on his own training) that exceeded my expectations and even his last dog training level. Go follow his growth and be sure to tune in when we finally link up and take Diesel to the next level. 👍🏼🙏🏼👊🏼✊🏼🐶

How many times have I had this conversation about protection/bite work and the training involve to get a dog not only to commit but to stay in the fight. @protectionk9sww posted this and had a great caption (no disrespect to your caption I wanted to direct this to my clients) so please find it and read it as he’s stating the same facts in his words.

.

.

“If the dogs never seen it, they wouldn’t know how to react” wonder how many times I’ve said this in training. This dog committed but wouldn’t stay in the fight when the decoy fought back, even a trained dog like this can be backed down if challenged correctly. What’s more evident of the rush in its training is that this appears to be a sanctioned Ring sport trial and the dog was still exposed. Although this is the correct thing for the decoy to have done as he found the “Chink in its armor” someone in the crowd got upset and gave him a piece of his mind.

.

.

Also note the decoy is wearing a bite suit and if anything the dog should know it’s training time and is going to be worked, imagine if this was a real life situation how would have this dog fared. The “fight or flight” notion comes to mind. The moral of this is all dogs bite but will they protect you if they are challenged let alone defend themselves.

It was 1987 when I first came about this picture and I remember saying to myself “I want my dogs to do that” but the truth is I didn’t know what they were doing and who’s dogs are they?

.
.

I found out that the picture is of a well respected dog trainer and PitBull activist “Diane Jessup” and her dogs, working a Spring Pole. If you’re a true dogman and BULLDOG enthusiast, then you BETTER know who she is but what is a Spring Pole?

.
.

A Spring Pole is a conditioning tool used to develop grip and drive on dogs. It helps in building muscle tone, gripping power, wrestling skills and drive. Unfortunately, the law views this type of conditioning as unlawful, ownership of a “Spring Pole” can be seen as dog fighting paraphernalia and a violation of the law.
.
.

However viewed, this is a form of “tug of war” game for dogs. Today one can walk into a pet store and purchase the variety of “tug toys” to play a similar game your dog but because this type of item is associated with the Pit Bull breed, it’s frowned upon.
.

.

Many Dog men still condition their dogs by way of Spring pole and other methods such as “treadmills” It’s common to see a well conditioned dog latch onto a piece of leather attached at the end, bite down and hang til they tired only to go back again.
.

.
They’re many exercises, training regimens and information that have immense benefits to a dogs overall well being in building drives and conditioning that old school dog men used back in the days that today can be utilized but unfortunately aren’t shared due to fear of the law and pets possibly being confiscated.
