THEY SEE US ABOVE

Dogs are speechless. But, as compensation, the nature gave them the ability and extremely subtle sense of the mood and intentions not only of their relatives, but also of people. Dogs, by subtle changes in facial expressions, intonations, the subconscious movements of our muscles, by the subtle smells of certain hormones, feel our mood and can accurately foresee our reactions. A properly educated (socialized) dog perfectly understands the difference between a attacking bully and a man running to a bus. Able to unmistakably understand the difference between fun festivities and aggressive mobs. Continue reading

INDIFFERENCE – FIRST STEP OF FEAR.

Like many other dog breeders, I started my way with the textbook “Fundamentals of Service Dog Breeding”. There were other books, but they were small and, in fact, they all contained the same cynological elements. For example, the unshakable postulate: a service dog must be suspicious of people. Mistrustful and always ready to protect his master and his property from enemies. Continue reading

OUR STAY

Our pack consisted of my dogs (their number varied from 4 to 6) and the dogs of my friends that we met almost daily for several years. Most of my friends also had several dogs (usually two) and, although they lived separately from us, constant contact gives us the right to consider them full members of the pack. Rottweilers prevailed in strength and prestige in the pack, the breed is by no means light in character and earned an undeservedly notorious reputation. Continue reading

LIFETIME LEGAL CONCLUSION?

In childhood, dreaming of a dog, I often imagined myself proudly walking with a dog on a leash. When I got the dog, I didn’t need a leash. Dinara, a one-year-old boxer bitch, picked up by me on the street, affectionate and obedient, was so afraid to get lost again that she did not leave me a single step without a leash. She did not pose a danger to children, nor to small dogs, nor to cats. Well, why such a good girl led on a leash? So it turned out that the leash in our relationship was purely a formality, resting during a walk somewhere in my pocket – contrary to the rules of keeping dogs in the city. Continue reading

The contrast between practical and sports training service dogs.

The book was published back in 1985, not by underground samizdat, but by the state agricultural publishing house, with a huge (by the standards of Czechoslovakia) circulation of 65,000 copies. Contained the basics of the ethology and psychology of the dog, fundamentally new things that were not found in any of our textbooks on cynology. I am not tired to be amazed why this book was not then translated into Russian, continuing to reprint from Pavilovsky’s book passages from book to book. And, apparently, they haven’t translated until now, because so far not only ordinary dog ​​breeders, but also instructors do not see the difference between aggressiveness and spitefulness, do not understand that the behavior of protest has nothing to do with dominance and that in relations between dogs prevails cooperation, not competition. Continue reading
