The better way of curbing aggression is by getting a good and skilled trainer that will stop the aggression through some better techniques.  Head halter and harnesses is very useful in controlling dominant dogs. Consistency, kindness and predictability in managing aggression is critical. No matter what you do, harsh punishment or any form of punishment will not help in any way, so  try to avoid it because if you don’t it can lead to the dog being more aggressive.

There are ways to stop aggression in dogs:

  • Take your dog on a walk: Keep your dog on-leash and keep the leash short, so that you have total control over the dog.

  • If you see people with or without a dog approaching: Move your dog to one side of the sidewalk, keeping him as far away from the other dog as possible

  • As the dogs and people approach, watch your dog very closely for signs of aggression: If your dog looks at the person or dog coming with a death stare, give a quick tug at the leash.

  • If your dog tries to attack, give the dog a quick snap back with the leash Tell him to sit down and this is tells your dog that being calm is good and that attacking others is bad.

  • Repeat:  Repeat the same process every time a person and dog walks by your dog.

  • Reward your dog!: When your dog is able to calm down and resist the urge to attack other dogs, you can reward him with a treat, or by petting your dog by saying “Good girl or good boy”, etc. This passes a message to your dog that being calm is a good thing

  • Whenever you think that your dog is able to calm down, make a meeting between your dog and another dog.

  • Introduce your dog to adults, teenagers, or a child so that they get used to people, they need to sociable

  • Have a role model for your dog!: If your dog doesn’t know how to calm, create a scenario for your dog.

My day job and my passion

What is my day job and What is my passion

My day job is what I take interest in doing and want to do my best at, but my passion is what I love with my whole heart and want to do all that i can to develop and grow it, there are times we have a job we don’t like but we still do it out of necessity to live and sustain ourselves and our family and on the other hand we always have the zeal and passion for one thing or the other, but it is always a good thing to do that which we have passion for at all times, take for instance I love blogging which is my passion and being a full-time blogger is what i am targeting  and i am trying my best to meet up with  that goal, but my passion supersedes every other thing, which is why I keep blogging still hoping for the best. I am still looking for that freedom of doing what I love full-time without any stress.

There are so many things we can do for our dreams to come true, even if we don’t like what we do , we can use what we don’t like which is our work as  an avenue for funding that which we want and love which is our passion, which with hard work and a lot of effort will generate good result if properly harnessed. We all have passion for all kinds of things and different purposes, but many of us do not like our day job as much as what we have passion for.

It’s very unfortunate if you dislike the job you do and feel uncomfortable doing  it, which is very understandable, even though its a job you have no passion about, especially working with some people whom you don’t ever wish to work with, but the truth is you have to keep appreciating what you do now and can be used as an instrument for getting you to where your passion is.

We all have regrets one way or the other during the cause of our lives, there are different kinds of regrets such as regret about loosing loved ones who were so  dear to us, regret about loosing contacts with important friends and school mates, regret about not doing the right thing at the right time, regret about doing the right thing at the wrong time, regret about not fulfilling our life goals and aspirations, regret about our achievements so far, regret about not going after what we want especially when we had it at our finger tips, regrets about our marriage, regret about associating with the wrong friends and acquaintances, regret about not being able to differentiate between a good friend and a bad one,regret about not setting our goals as we should and so on, there are so many things that can bring about regrets but the good thing is that, once we realize where we defaulted we can always correct our selves, This makes us strong and moving on would not be a problem and it also gives room to caution from unnecessary regrets in the future.

my regrets

A friend of mine was telling me of how much regret he had about not being able to show appreciation to his parents for how they raised him, because they are no more, one way or the other we do have people that we love and we hope and assume that they will always be in our lives, but due to unforeseen circumstances beyond us they are there no more or we lose contact with them because we do not realize how valuable they are to us then. many a time we do not know the value of what we have and how precious it is until we lose it, especially if we were in a sweet and loving relationship such as marriage and other kinds of relationship,  Due to our unconsciousness at the time of our relationship, we refuse to recognize its value until after it sleeps out of our hands. some time we regret not paying attention to what our parents thought us as kids and teenagers, but latter realized its value as adults. somebody was talking about going to a place where he would have achieved a lot and fulfill his dreams, but did not go after it when it was necessary to do so.

regrets

Errors and mistakes always gives room for corrections and is always a motivator for better life which simple means what ever mistake we did in the past after realization can bring about our success and achievements by learning from the past. because of our regrets from the past we can  always learn from it by:

What Would Life Be Like Without A computer

Life without A computer

In those days the other of the day was getting glued to the television which still happens till date but the advent of the computer made life much easier  and comfortable for everybody, it was a little difficult the first time because the common man could not have access to computer except companies because the computers were all large like the main frame and other computers like collosus which was used to break enigma codes and the manchester small scale experimental machine also known as baby which was the worlds first stored program computer, It was not easy for the common man to have access to computers then because of the cost of running it and the volume of the computers, but the invention of personal computers made life an easier and better place for everyone because of its usefulness and its value to the society at large in many different ways , both for the young and the old and everybody alike and to crown it all, the internet elevated its value in all ways because of the processes and the usefulness of the computer and the internet

The one interesting thing about the computer is that, it helps everybody to improve in their different aspects of life, no matter what you do there is a place for you in the computer world, the young, the old and everybody at large.  The good thing is that people who were not used to computers, want to be part of it especially with the age of social media and other activities.  It makes life so easy that it is useful for students,business men, computer professionals, people of different life style and the thing about the computer age is that  all institutions, banks, markets, individuals all use computer for different purposes, some people use it for buying and selling,some for games and some just browse the computer through social media like twitter and facebook and others use it for educational purposes. there are forums for discussion, with computers and internet you can get in touch with old friends, school mates and forgotten and lost acquaintances.

how will life be like without the computers, it will be terrible and devastating, it’s almost like when you deep your finger in honey and putting it in the mouth of a baby and the baby licking his or her lips indicates that it is sweet and want more. Refusing to give more to that baby would be terrible, so also is the computer and its usefulness, so without the computer life wont be as interesting as it is now irrespective of age. as a matter of fact, it has its setback but  its advantage is more. kids get busy with school work on the computer, games and other activities and adults use it for their work, for studying, business online and other interesting activities online.
