Anyone have a Dutch Shepherd? I'm a fan of the breed and I'd be interested in seeing some pics.

Great looking dog OP

I have been raised around GSDs all my life and after I got out of the Corp I was planning on getting one, the timing just did not work out. When I get my own place (house seeing as GSDs are an "aggressive" breed no apartments will have them) I plan on getting one. Or getting my dads. Great dog, solid black and about 120isg pounds......he is a big boy lol.

No but its a job I'm interested in care to elaborate.

Also Rex somehow managed to catch a red tailed hawk yesterday.
I was walking him behind my house were they are putting up new houses. He took off behind one of them and by the time I got back there he was battling with it. He ended up messing it up pretty good and I had to catch it and take it to a wildlife center

Certainly I can elaborate a bit.

The military uses many different dogs. We use smaller breeds for SSD (Specialized Search Dogs) and other Medium build dogs as well (Weimriener, Labs, etc). This is a whole different course so I wont get into that mainly because I know really nothing on it.

However, the military also uses certain breeds as Military Working Dogs (MWDs). The two breeds we use are German Shepards and Belgian Malinois. These two dogs have the keenest noses and, im guessing, have the most responsive Handler/Dog understanding. Im still pretty new at this but I will try my best to articulate what ive been learning the past month.

Basically, dogs can learn on two main aspects. They either learn on compulsion (obeying commands due to the fear of correction) and through Inducive training (Dog obeying commands fearing>or resenting) that they will not be rewarded. Most dogs prior to the implementation of Clear Signals Training (CST) have been compulsion type dogs; driven to obey the handler in fear of being corrected with the choke chain and leash. Compared to CST, compulsion builds more stress on the dog whereas CST is a more stress-free enviornment and is condusive for training and performing. The main point of CST is to accomplish the task without putting the dog on so much stress.

In our class we have a mix of both CST and Compulsion driven dogs. We have both german shepards and belgian malinois. The older dogs are more Compulsion than CST and the newer "pups" are CST. My dog is 2 years old and is CST... frankly... I dont like CST. I havent had very many good training situations partly because of the dogs inexperience.

Now, all dogs certify on both "patrol" and on "detection". A dog can be either an explosives dog or a drug dog. You cannot train a dog to detect both explosives odors and drug odors... to MY knowledge. We have yet to cover detection so this is all I can really say about that aspect of being a dog handler.

It is rewarding when you handle a dog and he does what you want and you train him to perform certain tasks... however it can be very aggravating and stressful. Sometimes I wonder if I made the right choice, however, I love learning what I am learning. It is a HUGE responsibility and is something I am going to love doing more down the road.

If you want more information about being a K9 handler in the miltary please PM me and I will help articulate it better for you.

TL;DR: Dogs bite and smell stuff... but mine can do it when I tell it to

This was my German Shepherd, Xeno. He was a Pure Bred from the Seeing Eye...I trained him, but when he went in for his final training he tried to chase too many squirrels and failed...so I got to keep him!

Those are beautiful dogs! I have never seen a white shep in my life! Very cute I would have never thought they would appear in white.

You might want to look into some human foods that can create a more glossy shiny coats. Now... do your research but my buddy always talked about his weimreiner's coat and how glossy and nice it was because he had her on a high protein diet. He used raw eggwhites to coat her food and gave her chicken every now and again.

Please dont take my word on this. I have only heard of this but his dog was beautiful and had a great coat. Look into feeding methods for a better, glosssier coat. Also, my dog has a great shiny coat of fur as a medium legnth hair dog. He is on Science Diet with nothing extra. Your dog's diet plays a big role in his coat appearence. Also, exercise, activity level, and attitude also play a part in your dogs appearence. Proper diet, exercise, and attitude/rapport with their owner(s) are definate factors in their coat and appearance... not just shampoo products alone.

Hope that gave you a little insight. Good luck post pics of your pups I would like to see more white sheps!
