Transparency: this is the most imperfect thing I could have posted but I’m not cherrypicking. We were fucking around.
One thing running rampant in all these dogs is this overwhelming sense of self importance. Narcissism is at an all time high.
I’m guilty as fuck, guys. Listen, I thought I knew everything when I got into working dogs and I still don’t know a fraction of what some of these old salts have forgotten.
What needs to be mentioned though, is if you’re just now getting into this shit, listen more than you talk. Not one trainer, training director, handler, behaviorist, veterinarian, or supposed expert is a true encyclopedia for all things dogs and that’s not soon to change.
There are some knowledgeable, awesome people out there but don’t drink their kool aid unabashedly without first evaluating your sources and your information. Challenge your own thinking. Every day.
Dog world is about the dog in front of you and keeping your program focused on being fair, fun, and clear.
The million dollar breedings don’t always yield a consistent lot of dogs that will cut the snuff for sport or their prospective jobs and when a beeeder tries to pass dog(s) off as something they are not, they end up in the hands of someone who has expectations that don’t get met. There’s more to life than ego and fear of failure. Don’t let those motherfuckers turn off your lights because they prey on boasting and being better than you.
Live your life, love your dog, shut your mouth, and leave it on the field. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖
#OfficialDutchShepherds for your dog to be featured! Tell and/or show us what kind of work you're doing with your dog. Dutch Shepherds and Malinois!
We have our first little model! We needed someone to test out our collars, and little Tango was perfect for the job! I'm working my rear off to start launching collars this weekend! It'll start happening, I promise! #sugarskull
