The appearance of Man's Best Friend

I walk pass Foh Sang and Hilltop Housing while having a jog with Baby-The Pug early morning yesterday. As we were jogging along the housing main road, plenty of dogs were miggling around outside their house, perhaps owners let them out for some release...then suddenly 1 particular black dog( perhaps its a mix kampung retriever) ,with big paws and long deep muzzle came running towards us with a grin on his eyes a fierce look on Baby ( grrrr~ who on earth are you to step on our territory??), then it started to sniff around Baby...when he actually found out that we are not Harmful and just a passer by, he started to wiggle his tail and feeling to play with us... I thought dogs were naturally friendly with 20% human instact.. they are more then happy if you are able to calm them down and communicate through body language and simple words of command. Hence, i let Baby play with this (Blacky- i call it for a while)..

I suppose Baby wasnt the best well trained dog, however, due to the environment she grew up, in a trap small apartment and limited running space in KL, she was trained to understand her responsibilties, dos and dont and even be obedient i.e: less barking, potty correctly and~~ stop chewing shoes! i remember she chewed all my teddy bear in KL and even the biggest one she was trying to drag it down!....

Puppy/ or canine behavior trainning, is historically to be used for hunting , police force, fighting for protection and even leading the blinds. Nowadays, dogs had become mens best friends, womans companion and even, shows for children.... As we in Sabah having dogs arund the Taman or sometimes seeing carcass of dogs on the road are common scenario, this were infact a serious issue for metropolitan City like Kuala Lumpur, authories "put wild dogs to sleep" thats sounds cruel but yes it is true....


Basically to have a dog, they do need a basic obedient trainning.. not particularly to perform or anything but to listen to owners command and instructions... Some people naturally has a communication bond with their dogs, especially the watch dogs or the sporty type... that these group of dogs really do sacrifice for them... however vice versa, they are also behavioral problems dogs that barks non-stop at night, scartches al over their owners car, or even bite their owners, these group of dogs are mostly companion dog( in house) or Toy dogs ( manja Dog i mean) .Dog behavior trainning can make an enormous difference in our dogs life....

Have you watch the Movie Marly and Me by Jennifer and Owen Wilson?






Or Hotel For Dogs?

oh dear, these are the movies that really infuse dogs huminity to us especially to kids... Non muslim society like Japan, Taiwan, Needless to say europes... are treating dogs as FURKIDS...Perhaps for us is still unacceptable....however, when you are in situation that is so down or anger... they silently understand you and emphaty your feeling, just like any best friend does...


Ok OK enough of DOGS.... i am allocating 1 hour for Baby-The Pug Flyball trainning this sunday at my Taman basketball court... if you do need some behavioral trainning for your dog, let me try if i can help you out with this :).. free consultation, Chin do come by if you are in KK. I m sure your pug Blacky will be happy to meet Baby..




Cheers...for the weekend...
