If your dog could speak, he’d call you his fri…

If your dog could speak, he’d call you his friend, cause he wouldn’t think of you as an owner and say “he feeds me, walks me, bathes me and is always telling me how good I am” Your dog would consider you to be the most giving person. To humans, it may seem superficial but to a dog it is everything. Without the rearing of human contact your dog would probably not live a fulfilled life. To an extent, they know it which is why they’re so loyal.

.

.

The beauty of this is humans would do all the above with the best of their abilities and expect nothing in return with no motives, thoughts of monetary returns and the all too common “I did this for you what you going to do for me” ideals. Of course we want our dogs to be obedient and social when guest come over but overall most people just want a buddy to hang with.

.

.

The quote “Be the person your dog thinks you are” should really be re-examined and thought through. Like I stated above about how people would do all for their dogs with no return wanted, if only we can be like so amongst each other in this world, caring for each other, helping one another, doing for all without any motives or wanting anything in return.

Visited a farm several hours outside of Tegucigalpa, Honduras and while inside one of the barns this little girl limped out. Apparently she was hit by a bike but no one ever took care of her. 😠

Short story:
.
.

I trained a dog for a client, his dog didn’t respect him too much. I wrote it off as such. One day he went to correct him and his dog growled at him. I made the owner correct the dog and put him on a down command for a long down.
.
.

Minutes later my clients daughter came into the garage to see what we were doing, he yelled at her to go back into the house. The dog got up and went in between the child and my client. As he went to grab the dog to place him back on his down command the dog allowed him to correct him but when he yelled again at the little girl the dog got up and did the same thing.
.
.

At this point I knew something was up with his dog. I told him to correct the dog again and “loudly tell his daughter to go in the house again” the dog once again stood between the child and the owner.
.
.

That’s when I realized that the problem with the dog was the owner and his anger. The dog didn’t like the way he spoke to the children. My client and I had talks about kids and life in every lesson afterwards until he got the lesson that it wasn’t the boy his dog that needed training, it was the owner himself who needed to change.
.
.

Moral of the story, the dog taught this gentlemen about himself, his anger issues and the way he spoke to people rather than the training this dog was getting. Dogs truly know how people are and only if we pay attention to them more, we can learn a thing or two about ourselves.

In my #BreedsofPurpose segments I’d like to talk about dog fighting. It’s taboo when one talks openly about dog fighting but let’s face the facts; it’s part of our dog world #history. When one usually thinks of dog fighting, it’s the game or as some call it, the #sport where man pits their dog against another mans dog for money, gambling, entertainment or simply to satisfy their ego.
.
.

What many of you might not know is that it’s still a common practice for #dogs living in rural areas of the #MiddleEast, #Europe and other rural communities around the #world to be pitted against one another, not for (entertainment) but to test these guardians (name given to a type of dog, commonly known as a LGD “Livestock Guardian Dog” i.e. Dogs that are still bred and trained to guard livestock)
.
.

Let me explain in more detail, the LGD usually massive #dogs such as #Kangals #Akbash #AnatolianShepherds #Leonberger are gentle around livestock but aggressive towards strangers and predators. Considered “self thinking dogs” which means they evaluate a situation themselves to know whether a threat is upon them.
.
.

An LGD would serve no purpose to a livestock owner if a dog firstly cannot stand their ground against another #dog. Therefore Shepherds game test their dogs against a more powerful, mature and experienced dog in order to help weed out weaknesses and see their willingness (gameness) to stay in the fight. The dogs that stay in the #fight would be left to tend to the livestock and continue to be bred for future offsprings while the ones that don’t will eventually be sold to private owners seeking an estate or property protection dog with the tag that it never be bred. To allow a dog to guard without this type of safeguard would be useless against any kind of predator in that the dog might not fight and therefore a livestock owner won’t just lose a dog but its livestock as well.
.
.

I know that #dogfighting in general touches on emotions because of the culture we have been brought up upon and how we view dogs as family members but it should be noted that this practice is important for the livelihoods of Shepherds and farmers who depends on their dogs to protect livestock living in rural communities to test their dogs capabilities, doing so will help to continue their stock for future purposes.
