Dogs + Behavior

  • When governor Richard W. Riley signed into law the act making the Boykin Spaniel the state dog in South Carolina, he said it was because of “the fierce dedication, stalwart loyalty, noble character, and eagerness for both hard work and lively play exemplified by this native breed.”

  • A sheepdog from France? With his long shaggy locks, curiously perked ears and air of dignified aloofness, the Briard is indeed a French sheepdog with that je ne sais quois - not like his British or German sheepherding brothers, but entirely original.

  • These dogs are playful and happy to join their family in anything. Most are friendly and accepting of strangers. They're happy, waggy dogs who always greet their family with an invitation to play.

  • They're perfectly willing to lie beside you (or on your lap) while you're reading a book, but if you invite them to play, they'll join a rousing game of catch-me-if-you-can.

  • The clownish, energetic Bull Terrier has found himself to be the object of advertising adoration. No fewer than three Bull Terriers have lent their talents to various marketing media. That said, any well-bred Bull Terrier is happy to put on a show for the family upon whom he lavishes never-ending devotion – and for family guests as well.

  • With its massive head, jutting jaw and barrel shape, the Bulldog appears to be a real tough guy but in fact is just the opposite. The truth is, everyone loves the Bulldog and this sweetheart returns the compliment.

  • Strong-willed and with a body more powerful than the average bear, the Bullmastiff cannot be coerced to do something he doesn't want to do. But for a master he loves and respects, nothing is impossible. These dogs crave physical contact and consider themselves to be lapdogs despite their girth.

  • Puppy Behavior and Training – Training Basics

    Los perros se pueden adiestrar desde el momento en que llegan a casa. Los cachorros aprenden desde el nacimiento; por eso, muchos criadores incentivan la manipulación y la socialización desde el nacimiento. Los cachorros más jóvenes son capaces de mantener la atención durante periodos de tiempo muy cortos, pero con 7 u 8 semanas de edad ya podemos esperar que empiecen a aprender órdenes simples de obediencia como “sienta” y “échate”.

  • Puppy Behavior Training – Training – Sit, Down, Stand and Stay

    Debe utilizarse un trocito de comida como premio, mantenerlo sobre la nariz del perro y desplazarlo lentamente hacia arriba y hacia la cola del perro. El cachorro se sentará al seguir la comida con la cabeza.

  • Getting Your Puppy Started Off Right

    Cuando el cachorro llega a casa necesita un periodo de adaptación. El objetivo es ayudarle a unirse rápidamente a la familia y minimizar el estrés asociado a la separación de la madre, los hermanos y la casa previa. La presencia de otro perro en la casa puede facilitar la transición, ya que al cachorro le resulta más fácil identificarse con los de su misma especie.
