The breed can be taught to work without their owner’s supervision. They can also evaluate and solve complex situations on their own. The Australian Cattle Dog owner knows the breed for its incredible stamina, intelligence, and loyalty. This is why the Australian Cattle Dog naturally takes upon itself to be not only a protector but also a companion (Beauchamp 30).
In The Call of the Wild written by Jack London an easy going domesticated dog is reminded of his roots and transformed into a hard working, wild and free dog. Buck understands what it is like to live a leisurely life, but after his trip to the North he never looks back on that life with disrespect. Bucks newfound life changes him overall as a dog, almost to a point where he has to be reminded that he is a dog and not some wild beast. The Call of the Wild shows the life of Buck while using many different literary methods. Bucks long and hard life journey can easily be compared to that of Odysseus in The Odyssey by Homer.
It took a long time to domesticate the dog, and it didn’t just happen overnight. Dogs are a man’s best friend, have evolved from wolves, and then were domesticated. We know dogs as loving and caring animals, but many hears ago they weren’t. The dog is a carnivorous, domesticated wolf (Canis lupus familiaris) of the family Canidae, to which the jackal and fox also belong. The dog is descended from the wolf.
Wolves are clever hunters and gatherers, especially the gray wolf. No speci... ... middle of paper ... ...nd cooperating with each other while hunting, but there’s even more, like having mostly monogamous relationships yet still sharing food and providing parental care for everyone (Schleidt/Shalter, 2003), not unlike a Full House-esque blended family. Contrary to popular belief, this is where we get our similar mannerisms, not the other way around; we learned from dogs. Think about that the next time you try to get Fido to roll over or sit. Using popular belief, you would probably think that dogs have been our companions for thousands and thousands of years.
Traditionally, humans acquired canines to serve functional purposes (Marston & Bennett, 2003). We have been able to document a relationship between humans and dogs as far back as twelve thousand years. As our ancestors began to become less nomadic, they settled down and started forming small communities where they learned to grow crops and raise livestock (Horowitz, 2009). These settled communities were sufficiently stable and it wasn’t long before wild animals began noticing that they produced a large amount of waste. Wolves are scavengers as well as hunters and may have been some of the first animals to discover this squander treasure (Horowitz, 2009).
To be a responsible owner of a trained and skilled upland bird dog it takes time and patients, but the reward of a well-trained dog and the love of a companion is priceless. The first step is to perform some research on picking out the right breed of puppy that will not only fit into the family but also for the fowl that will be hunted. Check out different breeders and finding one that fits the needs for the puppy you pick. This will be ideal in the history of the bloodline of the parents to the puppies and the abilities of your puppy and their future training. There are many breed options when it comes to picking the right puppy.
I could retain hours by feeding or working with my rabbits. By feeding and watering and working my horse, or just by spending time with my animals. But instead of using them for my hours, which i do on a day-to-day basis anyways, i decided to help and volunteer at the animal shelter. During my visits to the shelter, I was able to view all the different dogs that just wanted to be placed in a loving home. The staff at the shelter warned my parents and me to keep the dogs at a fair distance from each other as a lot of the dogs didn 't do well with other dogs.
Graham Vest stated, “the one absolutely unselfish friend a man may have in this selfish world….is the dog” at a Missouri trial in 1870, over 500 years after the first instalment of dogs in civil services (Orbaan, 15). Unlike man, canines possess a courageous attribute that does not fail even in the moment of an emergency and will not back down to daily challenges that may arise on the job each day. Law enforcement agencies around the world, both big and small, employ canines to assist officers in the field. Therefore, canine units have become an integral part of law enforcement around the world, yet to be able to detect bombs, drugs, or the like, canines and their handlers, must undergo extensive training to ensure “familiarization” between man and dog and its purpose. Moreover, on record, France was the first to use dogs for civil protection-patrolling the perimeter of Saint Malo in the early 1300s (Chapman, 8).
