Let me get this straight...So you’re telling me that you want me to drop this so I can chase it? And what if I lose it? And what if you don’t actually throw it again? How do I know you’re not fibbing? Just throw it. I can’t let go, just throw it.

Introducing Officer Vargo and Cain of WVCPD.

Before I was going take the photo Cain decided to do his own thing and went in between Vargo's legs and looked up. It's was like a kid waiting for his big brother's approval. This was towards the end of the shoot and the clouds were going west.— in West Valley City, Utah.

I was one of a few k9s selected to try out this cooling collar from @tcoolk9 . We received it yesterday just in time for our summer scorcher today with a real feel of 100+ degrees! Fits well and i can already feel a difference. The collar consists of cold packs that are inserted to the product to remove heat from my body. Stick em in the freezer for about 45 minutes and slide into the collar for a cooling sensation !!

Respect Space

Space is an important part of dog psychology, it represents respect.

I create space with dogs around myself, my kids and my cat as well as any guests that come over.

What a lot of people don’t realize is, by letting your dogs pick and choose when they get to be in your space, you are blurring the lines of hierarchy in your world.

The Hierarchy should go Human, other pets that dogs will chase or harm, then dog.

Creating space and making your dog earn the right and wait to be invited in will change how they view you in the house. 
It’s one more thing to be aware of when you are trying to establish leaderships your home.

About 5 minutes in to me getting into my apartment and starting to unload my shit did I remember I was in the south after moving one box from my truck into my apartment and was drenched within 5 seconds. So off came the pants and tank top and on went sports bra and boxers. Not even thinking about sunscreen. Won’t do that again😩🦞#sunburnt#imalobster#redasatomato#ouch#welcometothesouth#tennessee#newbeginnings#expandingthefarmerstan#weightloss#fitness#followmyjourney#blueeyes#blonde#restingbitchface#workingdog#k9handler#instamood#fitnessjourney#fitnessmotivation#makingmemories#ignorethemess#lessonlearned#mybackhurts#adventures#exploring#supnerds#imgettingold#modelmaterial#insertsarcasmhere

I’ve received multiple DM’s about Samson’s structure ever since I started posting more pictures of him playing in the backyard.
:
They’re usually the same questions regarding what he eats, where I got him from, what workouts I do with him, and how they can improve their rottie’s fitness.
:
Which are great questions but it’s worrisome when people want to over work their young puppy to make it look like someone else’s puppy or dog they saw on Instagram.
:
Wanting your dog to be fit is awesome, no doubt. It’s worrisome when you have a giant breed puppy, with sensitive joints and growth plates, and you work them out more than they’re supposed to.
:
Rottweilers and other XL/giant breed puppies should only be worked 5 minutes per month old per day. It’s even worse when people cut back their puppy’s food intake to make them lose weight thinking that getting rid of the excess puppy fat will show muscle. “Food bowl conditioning” is not healthy for any dog at any age.
:
Samson and many other XL/giant breed puppies will go through multiple body changes by the time they’re fully grown at 3 years old.
:
Also, some people need to realize that some of the most fit dogs out there have genetics on their side. Good genetics play a huge factor in a dog’s fitness. Most dogs can only get so fit up to a certain point. We should still exercise our dogs despite that knowledge. Achieve fitness to YOUR dog’s fullest potential. Comparing isn’t wise. It’s like me comparing Samson to a lean Malinois.
:
Samson’s a solid example about genetics. He just plays fetch, goes on long walks, and goes to protection training twice a week. He eats kibble that only has a 20% protein and 12% fat content. He’s naturally built like a well muscled tank. His grandsire and sire are built the same way. I don’t go out of my way or work extra hard to make him look this way. I just make sure he has his daily exercise of no more than 55 minutes. He’s still a growing puppy. I’ll start to go out of my way and work toward his full genetic potential when he’s two years old.
:
Some people need to realize and respect the long term health risks by over working and under feeding their puppy just to make them look fit.

End of the week see’s our 2 trainee drugs dogs coming toward the end of their training, with handler and K9 assessments booked for next week, plus K9 hand over. 
Our little bedbug detection dog is doing really well, with her achieving the required standards for the time she’s been training so far. 
We saw 4 dogs go off to a UK police force and HMPS, and 1 new Labrador come in for assessment and training. 
We’ve had over 30 new likes on our Facebook page, new follows on instagram and LinkedIn and have an exciting meeting booked for the start of August to potentially aid us to grow offering training courses and continuation training for the pest control industry.

Our little bedbug detection dog is doing really well, with her achieving the required standards for the time she’s been training so far.
We saw 4 dogs go off to a UK police force and HMPS, and 1 new Labrador come in for assessment and training.
We’ve had over 30 new likes on our Facebook page, new follows on instagram and LinkedIn and have an exciting meeting booked for the start of August to potentially aid us to grow offering training courses and continuation training for the pest control industry.

Lone Ranger by @benjaminbamba

Introducing Sgt. Palmer & Ranger of WVCPD. 
2*

It makes me happy when I get to do what I do. Because when I do it, it's to say thank you to those who serve our communities. I wish I got to know both of these guys more, because just watching Ranger and Palmer work together was fun.
