You must be the captain of your team. As the captain, you need to organize your dog’s space and activities. She needs to know what she is supposed to do with herself in every situation, from where to go to the bathroom and what to chew to how to compose herself during the dinner hour and while you’re entertaining company. Take a minute to think back to a team captain or coach that you admired. Now be that sort of leader for you dog. Come to your dog with a plan, communicate it consistently (i.e. where to go and what to do in all situations), and have patience for times when your dog is confused or acting up. Nobody’s perfect: You’re the captain so it’s your job to teach and stay cool!
It is important to like and agree with the person you choose to help you handle
your dog. There are many good dog trainers, but finding an individual who
can teach you is just as important. Here are a few questions to help you pinpoint
• How long have you been in this
• May I speak to someone regarding
• What books or websites do you
• How do you discipline a dog?
• What is your experience with my
breed (or with shelter dogs or mixed breeds)?
It’s best to find someone who is willing to answer these questions openly. A
good trainer is usually busy helping dogs, so be respectful of her time: wait
to ask for specific advice about your dog until you meet her face to face.

These dogs take themselves very seriously.Strong-willed and determined, they simply
ignore anyone they don’t respect. A dog with this personality requires a strong, consistent training program and is happiest when everyone involved takes the same approach.
These jokesters are always dancing on theedge of good behavior and will reveal any
inconsistency within your approach or within the family. Engaging, they thrive on
interaction and may be naughty simply to get attention. A comedian needs clear direction, consistent follow-through, and a calm approach. Being too stern can backfire as this dog will get hyper when a lesson becomes too rigid.
This easygoing lot takes life in stride and may not pay attention to your concern,
energy, or disapproval. These dogs often prefer to nap during lessons and can be
challenging to motivate. Be persistent with your lessons; left undirected they
can easily get distracted and find themselves in harm’s way.
EAGER TO PLEASE
Dogs with this personality put your approval high on their priority list. The drive for attention is so great that these dogs may indirectly learn such routines as jumping up when greeting to get attention that don’t meet with everyone’s approval. Training need only be presented and reinforced in a consistent manner for this dog to cooperate.
These endearing dogs are gentle and loving, often preferring to view life from the sidelines. They prefer not to make waves and can sometimes appear overwhelmed if lessons are too strict. Adoring and sweet, they can be needy if ignored. A calm,
praise-heavy training approach works best to bring out the best in this personality type.
Dogs in this group do not tolerate new situations, dogs, or people well. Calm familiarity is reassuring to them. To an outsider, a timid dog may appear abused, as he cowers and hides at the slightest distraction. Consistent, affirmative lessons will help this dog establish a stronger sense of himself.

Chupacabra or Chupacabras also called El Chupacabras in Spanish, is a legendary cryptid rumored to inhabit parts of the Americas. It is associated more recently with sightings of an allegedly unknown animal in Puerto Rico (where these sightings were first reported), Mexico, and the United States, especially in the latter's Latin American communities the Goatsucker was a monster that used to kill small animals by sucking their blood.Goatsucker like Bigfoot and the Loch Ness Monster were seen by few. But unlike Bigfoot and the monster at Loch Ness the Goatsucker seems to have vanished off the face of the earth.
Was Goatsucker killed by those who hunted it? Did Aliens pickup their biological weapon Goatsucker? Was Goatsucker a government experiment that escaped and then recaptured? Or was the people involved in seeing and hunting Goatsucker tired of carrying on the hoax?
What we, at our organization, are trying to find out is what happened to Goatsucker and whether or not Goatsucker is alive or not and if it is alive to find where it is.
