    It can be quite a complicated process to assess a dog by its constitution and exterior looks. First of all, both experts and dog owners need to have in mind that an assessment of any dog’s exterior is not simply the be-all and end-all, but rather a way to help improve the breed and increase the vital capacity of its ...

    Рано или поздно любой владелец сталкивается с проблемой поведения у собаки. Понимание причин поведения и умение справиться с ситуацией помогают быстро решить проблему.
    Вот основные правила, которые подходят практически к любой ситуации.
    Контролируйте собаку, и вы будете контролировать ситуацию. Надев на собаку ошейник и поводок, вы можете контролировать ее. Для многих собак надевание "тренировочной" амуниции означает "начинаем работать", и это может помочь в решении проблемы. Собака на поводке не может убежать или погнаться за бегуном или животным, и у владельца появляется возможность помочь ей понять, что нужно делать.

    When Shetland sheepdog Maggie comes home from the groomer, her owners praise and pet her shiny coat, much to the chagrin of pit bull Stormy, who will head-butt her until their family cuts out the compliments.


    "Stormy's jealous," said owner Amy Putnam.


    "You know how you're supposed to treat your kids the same? Well, that goes for dogs, too. They get along great and go with the flow until one thinks she is being slighted."


    After hearing stories like Putnam's, a psychology professor decided to study for the first time whether the human emotion of jealousy really occurs in dogs. The nine-month study published in July in the science journal PLOS ONE hints that it could be possible, but other experts are not so sure behaviour like Stormy's can be called jealousy.

    Caesar has a rock solid temperament and my training has enhanced it. My methods are gentle and encouraging, rather than punishment related and forceful. I want the dogs that I train to WANT to obey me because they’re happy to please me, not to obey me because they’re worried about what might happen if they don’t. As well as this he’s already 50 kilos, so if you don’t have control of him verbally, there’s probably very little chance that you’ll control him physically if he doesn’t respect you. Through a consistent program of training and expecting a very high standard of good manners from him at all times we have produced a dog who is polite and obedient. Its very important that you maintain these rules when he gets to you and expect the same level of manners because this will slip if not kept in check. When he went to Paphiakos for the 3 weeks over Christmas he came back to me jumping up and pulling on his lead because the staff obviously hadn’t maintained his manners as strictly as I do. It only took me one day to get him back to how I wanted him, but it just goes to show how quickly they can forget their manners and training when allowed to get away with stuff.

    Caesar

    As a breeder of German Shepherds and a dog trainer and behaviourist of all breeds I thought I’d dealt with most breeds of dog. So when I got a call to ask if I’d kennel and train up an East European Shepherd I was baffled. I’d never actually heard of this breed!! A quick Google search gave me the information I needed and I was really looking forward to meeting the dog and working with a breed I’d never worked with before. Obviously I didn’t know what to expect temperament or trainability wise and was excited about the challenge.

    This powerful breed is seen by many as what the ideal working German Shepherd Dog should be, with some even considering it to be the original incarnation of the popular German breed. However, it should be noted that even though related, the East-European Shepherd is neither the same breed nor a type of the GSD, but a very different and separate working dog from the USSR. It could be argued that it was developed as an improvement upon the GSD, which proved itself to be unsuitable for harsh climates of the former Soviet Union when it was introduced to the country in the 1920's, but the East-European Ovcharka was created in the 1930's using a number of breeds, many of which have remained undisclosed to this day. What has been confirmed is the employment of imported German Shepherds, a variety of indigenous Russian Laikas, Central Asian Ovcharkas and Dobermanns in the breeding programme, but quite a few other breeds have been suggested as having a part in its creation, including Black Russian Terriers, Caucasian Ovcharkas, Moscow Mastiffs and even some wolf-hybrids and local greyhounds, but whether this was really the case is unclear.
