AUG 4 2015
WE HAD A PUPPY HERE ON SUNDAY..  MAYBE 10 WEEKS OLD...  SOME VETERNARIAN -----WHO SHALL REMAIN NAMELESS ( NOT GEORGE) -----MADE THE OWNER VERY APPREHENSIVE TELLING HER SHE BETTER GO TO AN ANIMAL PSYCHOLOGIST IMMEDIATELY  SO THE DANE  DIDN'T BECOME A FEAR BITER..

NICE LITTLE PUP-- BUT IT CAUSED ME TO  EXPLAIN SOMETHING.....LITTLE PUPS... STRAIGHT FROM LITTERS AND MOMMY, NEED TO IDENTIFY WHO IS ABLE TO SAVE THEM FROM THIS TERRIFYING WORLD.,, IF IN THE PROCESS A PUPPY GROWLS AT YOU-- OR SOMEONE-- IT IS BECAUSE YOU HAVE DONE SOMETHING WRONG..  AROUND HERE... IF YOU BACK A DOG OR PUPPY  INTO A CORNER.. THREATEN HIM BY  STARING STRAIGHT INTO HIS EYES AND IGNORE HIS GROWL, I FULLY EXPECT YOU WOULD BE BITTEN,  AND I WOULD BE HAPPY TO CHARGE YOU  FOR HAVING MY PUP EDUCATE YOU.

 PUPS HAVE TO BE TAUGHT WHAT THE DOG TRAINING WORLD CALLS SOCIALIZATION-- I CALL IT  PUPS HAVE TO BE TAUGHT THE GENERAL PUBLIC IS MADE UP OF 94.3% BLOOMING IDIOTS,--- ASK ANY OF OUR TRAINERS-  YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE IN THE PUBLIC WITH A DANE FOR VERY LONG BUT SOME MOTHER WILL SHOVE SOME KID IN YOU DOG'S FACE WITH A "TELL HIM TO SIT SO MY KID CAN PAT HIM" --- IT HAPPENS....

DANES ARE BY NATURE   TIMID...  THEY DO NOT BOUND UP TO PEOPLE AND LICK STRANGERS IN THE FACE LIKE A GOLDEN RETRIEVER MIGHT. AND YOU DO NOT STICK  YOUR HAND OUT AT THEM WHILE LOOKING  THEM IN THE EYES.-- TO A DOG, THAT IS A VERY AGGRESSIVE MOVEMENT.
THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT YOU DO TO MAKE  ALMOST ANY DOG BARK AT YOU....STARE AT THEM AND MOVE TOWARD THEM...  THAT  IS HOW MOST DOG X DOG FIGHTS START-- EYE CONTACT IS REALLY BAD TO A  DOG YOU DO NOT KNOW.
LEAVE THEM ALONE, LET THEM GET THE LAY OF THE LAND, AND THEY ARE FINE.  DANES ALSO ARE VERY VOCAL  WHICH IS NOT NECESSARILY GROWLING, BUT GRUMBLING.

THE LITTLE PUP WAS FINE-- AND EVEN FRIENDLY ONCE HE HAD LIFE EXPLAINED BETTER BY HIS OWNER.  THE OWNER IS THE PERSON HE HAS ID AS HIS SAFE PERSON..  HE HAS TO THINK ABOUT THE REST.  LET HIM.

EVERY DANE OF MINE WILL "TALK"  BY GRUMBLING.  GRUMBLING DOES NOT INVOLVE TEETH SHOWING....IF IT GETS TO TEETH SHOWING YOU HAVE REALY OVERSTEPPED YOUR BOUNDS...
***
SO PUT THAT IN THE SITUATIONOF A VETERNARIAN DOWN ON THE FLOOR ON HIS HANDS AND KNEES CRAWLING TOWARD A PUPPY TRYING TO SEE IF HIS EYES ARE OK.... AND YOU HAVE BIG TROUBLE... NOT THE DOG'S FAULT.
*****
SO ADDRESS THE PUPPYS WE NOW HAVE... THEY ARE VERY RUMBLE TUMBLE-- NO PROBLEM 1 ON 1.. BUT SEVERAL TIMES AUDRY HAS BEEN PUT IN WITH 2 OTHER PUPS AND GOT BEATEN - MORE THAN NECESSARY..
AND SHE HAS TOLD ME SO... BY HER ACTIONS...
FIRST-- SHE DIVES UNDER MY DESK AS A PLACE SHE HAS FIGURED OUT NO ONE CAN GET AT  HER...
 MORE SIGNIFICANT THAN THAT....-- DEVLIN   RUNNING 3 OF THEM DOWN TO THE V PEN-- 2 WENT THRU THE GATE LOOKING FOR THE USUAL COOKIE- AND YOU WOULD HAVE THOUGHT AUDRY WAS DEAF... SHE RAN RIGHT PAST THE GATE- SO DEVLIN GOT HER ATTENTION AND OPENED THE GATE FOR HER-- AND SHE RAN PAST AGAIN-- SHE KNEW VERY WELL WHAT DEVLIN WANTED  BUT WAS SAYING " I DON'T LIKE BEING IN THRE WITH THEM,"  I ASKED DEVLIN TO ASK AUDRY TO GET UP ON A SOFA IN THE T T ENT-- AND SHE HOPPED RIGHT UP...  DISOBEYING? NO
SHE WAS EXPLAINING A PROBLEM.

DOGS DO TALK.. YOU HAVE TO LISTEN.....SO.... WE ARE DOWN TO THE PUPS BEING 1 X 1 UNLESS PERSONALLY SUPERVISED BY A TRAINER... AND NEVER PUT AUDRY IN WITH 2 OTHERS UNLES I AM THERE.
***********
WE NEED TO HAVE THESE RULES POSTED....

RULES WHILE AT THE SERVICE DOG PROJECT


  • IF IT’S BROKEN, FIX IT
  • IF IT’S DIRTY, CLEAN IT
  • IF IT’S SMELLY, PICK IT UP
  • IF IT’S EMPTY, FILL IT
  • IF YOU TRIP OVER IT, MOVE IT
  • IF IT’S GOT FOUR LEGS AND A TAIL, LOVE IT
  • IF IT’S GOT TWO LEGS - IN A RED GOLF CART, LISTEN CLOSELY TO IT
A haircut necessitated a change to the last rule.  The original rule was...
IF IT’S GOT TWO LEGS AND A LONG BRAID DOWN ITS BACK, LISTEN CLOSELY TO IT

  1. You have just written the 'Operations Manual' for any pup, especially Danes! Wish this was handed out to every new pup owner.
    Maybe you should have it printed and handed out to every visitor at Crazy Acres?
    Bless you for sharing your wisdom!
