The cattle industry in the past as well as today would be nothing without the help of man's best friend. Herding dogs are the best known working dogs. These unique dogs have an instinct to herd and with the right training will help a farmer or rancher move his herd without any trouble, as long as the dog is responsive to the ranchers hand signals and whistles. The best way to train a dog is to have it work along side an already experienced dog. They are keen, alert, responsive, and extremely intelligent. Numerous dogs have evolved into just show dogs or pets, but there are a few that are still used on farms and ranches.
Have you ever had a dog? Do you know where dogs came from? Well, did you know that a million of years ago dogs did not exist. Back, then the dogs were wolves that disliked people. The relationship between dogs and humans has changed over time because over thousands of years ago, the wolves evolved to dogs and the dogs soon became part of human families. That is why these days people want to have a dog as a pet.
The third characteristic of a good dog is courage. Courage is an important characteristic of a good dog because they are more play full and fun to be around. This also means that they won't be afraid of anything or any one. This is important for a good guard dog. Pit Bulls are also very courageous. One example of how courageous Pit Bulls are, is when my Pit was twelve pounds he was trying to wrestle a one hundred and sixty-five--pound Rottwiller. Whenever he is around dogs his own weight or close to it, he always is the dominant dog. Another way he shows his dominance is whenever he is in a car he will want to sit on the driver's lap. The vet told me that this is a sign of dominance in dogs. Even
Canines have the ability to serve as seeing-eye dogs, firedogs, service dogs or just a playful, loyal companion.

There are many different breeds of dogs in this world, but all of them are loving and caring. Josh Billings once said “A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than he loves himself.” This quote is so amazing, it shows you just how much a dog loves you, and that they would put you before anything, even themselves. There's an article called “Brain Scans Reveal What Dogs Really Think of Us,” by Theresa Fisher. In this article it explained how
Brown states that she noticed an increase in demand after the show “Frasier” revealed them as intelligent and adorable little devils (Nieves par. 4). Other than just being famous for their use in television, Jack Russell’s are also among one of the smartest breeds of dogs. Their intelligence is what gives them their quirky, yet almost human like personality. For anybody who has had experience with Jack Russell’s, you’ll know that their high energy and strong will can tend to be quite the handful for some, and shed them in a bad light.
My parents German shepard is very smart. He is always aware of his surroundings and knows when not to do somethimg. When my father leaves, he always does things he knows he couldn't get away with when he would be home. For example, jumping on the counters to get food. He is a very large dog in size.
Every dog has a breed, maybe it’s a mix. Each breed of a dog has a job that a dog next door may not have. Take a Cocker Spaniel for example. Cocker Spaniels are hunters that can track down a deer you shot. Chihuahuas are good therapeutic dogs, Chihuahuas can’t do as much energetic things because they are so small.

Having the highest brain weight to body ratio (1%), 8 common vocalizations, and over 15 complex vocalizations in which they use to communicate. Yes, I do realize that they may not have preformed as well when it came to the maze test, coming in at 510 errors before success. Nevertheless, when you combine the results of all these test I find that cats come out on top. From a performance standpoint they provide he most reliability and stamina across multiple facets of testing criteria. In a very close
Cute, fun, loving, cuddly, outgoing; these are only a few words to describe the animals that we have come to know and love as a part of our families. Dogs have been man’s best friend for hundreds of years and were the first animal to be domesticated because they are great as companions, highly intelligent, and were found to be very useful in human’s everyday lives. Even though they made excellent house pets they were highly successful at working side by side humans as well. They are not limited to being just best friends, but they have been found to be protectors and saviors as well, to their owners, others people and even other dogs too. One type of working dogs in
It is often said that a dog is a man’s best friend. In the last 14,000 years, dogs have accompanied man by helping him hunt, guard, and protect. In our modern world, dogs help us combat in war, search-and-rescue, guide the blind, deaf, discapacitated, rehabilitate patients in therapy, aid law enforcement, and are part of our family as beloved pets (Coren). Although canine superstars such as Lassie, Old Yeller, and Rin Tin Tin portray the perfect dog we all want in our lives, these ideals are far from the truth. Many first-time dog owners expect dogs to know behaviors such as how to walk on a leash, not bite, not destroy the house, and in addition to many others. In reality, dogs must be trained on what their handler wants them to do. It is
