AMPHIBIOUS COMMAND DOGS – Working dog jumping out of a helicopter. . .

Breeds were created and have become a particular standard for a particular reason. Every pure bred dog was created for a particular purpose. Whether that end is guarding property, pulling sleds, performing water rescues, bringing home the sheep, hunting the ducks, or or  capturing the bad guys… Without careful breeding, being able to produce dogs that are good candidates for these various functions becomes much harder, if not impossible.

Responsible, ethical breeders exist for the betterment and continuation of pure bred dogs…  Responsible, ethical breeders always select for desirable traits. They breed dogs for good temperament, health, working ability and beauty. If responsible breeders don’t breed, then we will lose something precious in our relationship with those purebred species… Sadly, mandatory sterilization laws are sweeping our nation and may further compromise the future of the dog fancy. AKC registrations continue to decline and the push to legally and/or contractually require spay and neuter of most every dog will only worsen that situation. Professional Breeders and Responsible Hobby Breeders, should not be confused with back yard breeders… They are truly the future of the canine.

It’s absurd when people say that mixed-breed dogs can do anything a pure-bred dog can…

AMPHIBIOUS COMMAND DOGS

They can not say that a mixed-breed dog is better at police/military work than a Belgian Malinois or a Black Russian Terrier.  They can not say that a mixed-breed dog is better at pack hunting a wild animal than a Rhodesian Ridgeback. They can not say that a mixed-breed dog is better at jumping out of a helicopter and performing water rescues than a Newfoundland. And the list goes on …

That’s the reason why pure bred dogs exist. They’re not “designer” dogs or “fashion” statements… They have a purpose and have been bred to a particular individual breed standards for centuries. Working dogs are intelligent, courageous, profoundly loyal and capable animals that make solid companions. By virtue of their size alone, these dogs must be properly trained.

Working dogs have been our loyal companions as far back as the 1600s. While these dogs come in all shapes and sizes, the most common working dogs are known for their large, strong bodies. Typically, they’re larger breeds that are specifically bred to perform tasks like:

Farming and herding, Agility competitions, Law enforcement, Racing, Hunting, Sledding, Service, Show.

Working dog breeds include:

Alaskan malamute, Akita, Boxer, Bullmastiff, Doberman pinscher, Giant schnauzer, Great Dane, Mastiff, Newfoundland, Portuguese water dog, Rottweiler, Saint Bernard, Siberian husky, Swiss mountain dog.

Believe it or not, the Welsh corgi can thrive as a working dog when given the task of herding ducks, chickens and other barnyard fowl.

Being a Responsible Breeder Costs Money..

… And there is reason why their puppies cost more. A truly responsible breeder maintains responsibility for every pup he or she raises. “Responsible breeding” is very, very hard work. These breeders carefully select a mating based on genetic factors, physical and behavioral (temperament) health, then care for the dam and the litter as they should be cared for, provide an enriched, nurturing environment for the maturing pups, sell only to the best of homes and act as a resource (and possible home) for the rest of the dog’s life… well, that’s a huge commitment.

Dog breeding is not an easy way to make money; most breeders LOSE money, what with legislation limiting the numbers you can own and sell + the high cost of veterinary care… Yes, responsible dog breeding is a labor of love!

Unfortunately, in America AKC registrations continue to decline and the push to legally and/or contractually require spay and neuter of most every dog will only worsen that situation. And breeders are not blameless. It has become commonplace for breeders to include spay/neuter requirements in their pet sales contract to protect the puppies that they sell from back yard breeders and also to maintain control over their bloodline. Essentially for monetary reasons, but shameful from a health perspective… See why here.

If you find a well bred, purebred dog in the U.S. and the breeder is demanding you sign a spay or neuter contract, offer to pay extra to reserve the right to allow YOUR dog to remain intact, or to extend the age of neuter from his/her usual time frame on the puppy contract. If you decide you must neuter your male dog, do not do it until well into their second year. Wait until the puppy reaches maturity before having sterilization surgery performed.

If you are a responsible pet owner and don't want to buy your purebred 
dog on spay/neuter agreement, if you want an intact animal, Look abroad!

AMPHIBIOUS COMMAND DOGS

Amphibious Command Dogs – Responsible, proven breeder of working dogs. Well bred dogs, with stable temperament, and working ability…

As a professional  breeder of working dogs, for sixteen years, Luis Miguel Legizamón has  been fortunate to blend his passion for working dogs together with his livelihood. Dog breeding and training started at an early age beginning with conformation handling and obedience trials with his father’s German and Dutch shepherds. Luis Miguel Legizamón’s kennel operates (since 2000) under the name Amphibious Command Dogs.

Amphibious Command Dogs is the home of Luis Miguel Legizamón and his many pure bred working dogs. Amphibious Command Dogs are home raised with lots of love, socialization, and training. In the past twenty-plus years, he and his family have ethically bred purebred dogs and puppies he has placed in homes as pets or working dogs. With each litter they focus on tender loving care, socialization and good behavior around people and other pets. That’s how they prepare the puppies for their new homes where their job ahead is to not only guard and protect but to be a faithful friend.

Luis Miguel is the son of a Marine who handled many, many working dogs (German and Dutch shepherds) during his career. At an early age, as a junior handler, Luis Miguel experienced the incredible bond between the working dog and his handler. Working dogs are intelligent and loyal. They respond well to training and can be relied upon to come through in difficult situations. A bond forms between the working dog and his handler that will survive even the most difficult circumstances. Today, working dogs are not only Luis Miguel’s livelihood but also his passion..

Amphibious Command Dogs strives to provide loving healthy and intelligent pups for families interested in a fine pet or working dog. We think of each one of them as home bred ambassadors for their good temperaments and conformation. Amphibious Command Dogs gives its clients a wonderful starting point for their dog’s socialization & training.

We encourage all prospective puppy owners to do their research to find out what dog breed is the best fit for their household. There is little controversy about the fact that many dogs end up in shelters because of what owners describe as “behavioral problems.” Many of these problems could be easily handled if owners in the first place acquired the “right” dog for their households…

AMPHIBIOUS COMMAND DOGS – Most Popular Breeds

~ Rottweilers ~

  • Rottweilers make suitable family pets, working companions or potential show dogs. Reserved with strangers and affectionate and loyal with his family. He is a strong minded and incredibly intelligent. Sometimes stubborn. However, he is the most well rounded breed of dog capable of any job asked of him.
  • At  AMPHIBIOUS COMMAND DOGS, all the Rottweiler puppies they sell come with their natural tail (tail intact).

PLEASE NOTE: In 2000, COLOMBIA made the cropping of ears and tails of ALL BREEDS illegal as it was deemed inhumane. The FCI put into effect the new published standard on April 6, 2000 the for the Rottweiler which abolished the tail docking.  As a result any Rottweiler born in Germany or Europe after this time or any Rottweiler born outside of Europe desiring to compete in German events must have the tail intact.

On the other hand, we believe that mutilating newborn puppies is a truly barbaric practice. The tail is sliced off while the puppy is fully awake and screaming. The raw, open tail is then stitched up, again, without any anesthesia – what a welcome gift!
