Behavior

  • Clicker training is used as a means of clearly and immediately reinforcing a behavior in virtually any species of animal.

  • Owners will recognize that horses and ponies all have different ‘personalities’, with varying temperaments, willingness to please and responses to environment and handling. With the exception of some of the miniature breeds, they are bigger and stronger than their handlers.

  • The Belgian Malinois is an intense, sensitive individual who is willing to dedicate himself not only to his jobs, but also to his human.

  • The Belgian Sheepdog is the long-coated, black version of what some people consider one breed, the Belgian Shepherd (or Continental Shepherd). Like all the members of this family, the Belgian Sheepdog is an active and intense companion, as well-suited for police work as for herding chores.

  • Intelligent and energetic, Belgian Tervurens are happiest with a job to do. They are loyal and form strong bonds, so they must be part of the family, not isolated or left outdoors.

  • Bergamascos are easygoing, balanced, and observant, and tend to bond strongly with their owners. They are patient and tolerant with children, making them excellent family guardians and companions.

  • The happy wagging tail and calm demeanor of the Bernese Mountain Dog make him or her a splendid family pet. Overjoyed to greet you when you come home and equally content just hanging out, their easygoing temperament is a joy.

  • Bichon Frises are enjoyable playmates for children and companions for the elderly. They are ideal for city living yet are found in just about any lifestyle situation because of their good looks and pleasing personalities.

  • A bird may bite out of fear or aggression. They may be protecting their territory or asserting their dominance. Their powerful beak can break the skin and hurt. If your bird tries to bite you, remember to keep your fingers together and curled inward.

  • The Black and Tan Coonhound loves to sniff up a trail and go on a hunt, but he's also a mellow fellow content to lounge around the house — as long as he gets out for a good walk or jog every day.
