Meet Sossa, DDK9’s Next Protection Superdog | DOG DYNASTY

Marlon: This is Sossa – the next superdog. He’s Billy bad-ass. He’s never been out. I don’t know how
he’s going to react to what he sees. Suddenly there’s this Husky
that’s coming towards us and right off the bat, there was tension. Right this is Sossa, he’s the next
prodigy, he’s the next best thing. Yeah Sossa is definitely a little ****. Alright be calm. He doesn’t know
what calm means though, not yet. A little ****. He’s just a young little psychopath. He’s about 10 months old now. He’s probably relatively close to
the size that he will actually be. You’ll notice that he’s very different
from, you know, where he was last time. To actually teach him to be a pure
soldier takes a lot of time. He’s extra, extra stubborn. And
that’s really what you want. When you’ve got a dog that’s
like a mega asshole, you almost know they’re going
to do good in this field. Building one of these dogs,
what you’re doing is you’re giving this dog the biggest ego
that he can possibly have. He literally needs to
think he is invincible. He’s the baddest dog walking the
planet and nothing can stop him. You got to check your ego at the door. It’s all about the dog’s ego. Now he’s got to think
he’s Billy badass 24/7. I’m going to get him on this wedge, let him get a couple bites just to
make sure his engagement is right. You might get bit, you might get
punched in the face by a paw. Definitely going to get dragged around but if you don’t like that, don’t train dogs. I’ll train him to be 100% war ready. Like he doesn’t understand that he’s
like training for protection work, he just thinks he’s playing a game. So that game is going to carry
on until we start to show him, you know, an actual threat. But right now, it’s literally
just playing games you know. So basically what you’re
doing is eliminate hesitation. You know what I mean, that’s what we want. Because in this game, security
game, you hesitate you die. So the dog has got to learn zero hesitation. This dog has spent most of
his time here on the farm but it’s time that you know we
take him out in the public. We take him out to a city setting
we see how he is around traffic, you know around just regular people because
that’s going to be an important part of being a protection dog. It is being able to function in,
you know, general society. So I just want to test, test his mindset. I just want to see where
his head is really at, you know that’s what we’re
going to go do today. Lisa: So today we’re going to take Sossa
out and just let him see things that we don’t have back home. Marlon: He’s never been out
so this is all new for him. He’s going to be like dragging me down
the street, it’s going to be a good time. So we’re not in Kansas anymore, Toto. Honestly like I’m just literally
looking for things like, even like, like that right there
like just little staircase and like just let him walk him down. And literally, just getting him used to
things that you would think you would never have to
get something used to, that’s what I’m doing now. And we call it imprinting in dog training just basic, basic wandering
around with him. I don’t know how he’s going to react
to what he sees but he’s on the prowl. See his swag ain’t changed,
that’s what we want. So basically, I’m just letting
him you know, see the sights see just what it’s like to see just
everyday people, traffic, cars, sounds. He isn’t really obedient yet. So you know, we can’t let anybody
touch him or anything like that. Nobody’s ever dealt with
Sossa but me and Lisa really. One of the worst situations that we
can have is you know, there being a ton of people just trying to flood
Sossa when we’re trying to, you know, do this imprinting. So I needed my security with
me to keep people at bay. Lisa: We get a lot of people coming
up to us wanting to take pictures. A lot of attention. Right now, we
kind of want to keep people at bay and just really focus on the dog. Marlon: Come on, boy. Yeah, this is weird.
I think it was weird too, come on. Come on if I’m
going, you’re going come on. Come on. There you go. Come on! The reason why I had him
doing this is repetition, you know. So initially
he had a little pause, he didn’t want to do it. We
just pull him through it. He’s got no fear. And
then by the second or third time, the confidence
starts to change. We’re building confidence in the dog.
So skip come on! Come on, come on, right there.
Right there, jump, do the next one. Lisa: Getting him to jump through the
hoops, he did really well in that. And it was great to see him
learn something like that and master it. And with just a few tries. He learned really quick.
Marlon: Good job. I can tell right now he really doesn’t like
to be in tight spaces too much. So that’s something that
I’m going to work on. There you go. So I’m walking down the
street and suddenly, there’s this Husky that’s coming towards us. He’s never, he’s never
seen nothing like that. You could see when the
Husky came up and got down real low. And he
got in this position, which is a stalking position, you know.
So right off the bat, there was tension. He’s alert right now, you know,
so he’s kind of bothered. So this is why he’s here. This is
all things that he has to work on. You know, so we’ve seen another
dog, his reaction, it wasn’t it just was mildly disappointing, but
it’s not anything that we can’t correct. He’s still got a long way to go.
We got a lot to do with him. But I know he is going to be
the future star here at DDK. Normally when you deal with protection
dogs, you’re not going to get the dog that has this
like stomach. You pick based on performance. So to have a dog that’s that rare,
that I know just from seeing him has the skills to lead, probably the
best dog that I’ve ever trained is a gift. He’s going to be a star beyond. He’s a prodigy.

  1. Is it weird that my reaction to the thumbnail was “he’s adorable I love his smile and I want to hung him even if it kills me”

  2. Oooooh Boy … Sossa is a real bad boy dog … I love his painting.
    Guys keep doing ur job … ?
    Greetings from Swiss ??

  3. Can we just talk about how cute he is? I would love to have him as my cuddling frie- I mean guard dog

  4. That’s a good looks pit! I’m personally not a huge fan of xl pit bulls but each to his own. But good looks on this guy more like him.

  5. Yeah you are taking dogs only for protection ? I want my answer because pit bulls are the same as the other dogs if you see it answer me

  6. Akitas are such aggressive dogs!!! Pitbulls get a bad wrap but I've met 100s of pits who are grate dogs but ever Akita has been super aggressive and extremely difficult to train

  7. In time pitbull’s will be outlawed federally. If not it will be done in every state, the numbers don’t lie. These dogs are ticking time bomb’s and basically war machines that were bred over time for destruction and death.

  8. COWGIRL'S DADDY is right that's an Akita bro. They have similar characteristics but are completely different dogs…..Sosa is a well built dog, well done.

  9. my concern is, is what will he/they (all the other dogs on the farm).. do if they ever accidentally get out of containment?

    – bc i had a neighbor that would let her dog roam the neighborhood (by her hse) and then told everyone she was a pit..

    * keep in mind her hse was right across from my sons elementary school bus stop

  10. There is rare breed it's a tiger stripped purple pitbull but only one person has that breed and there really friendly with people ?


  12. You no he with the u no what when He saw dat husky he wasn't barking acting hard he was just trying to get to it in his brindle coat goes hard nice dog.

  13. I have a question if u ask to pet sossa will mr marlon say no bcs he doesn’t want him to get distracted or will he let u pet him

  14. Dont need to make anymore of these dogs. Your running a dog abuse facility. Go to the animal shelter. 90 percent of dogs put down are these types of dogs because of stupid breeders and owners.

  15. Ok, I've got to say… If you really didn't want so many people recognizing you on the street, why would you both wear those hoodies?… Come on…. you can't fool a wise lady. You like having the 'body guards' around. Makes you feel good and a little important doesn't it? lol

  16. Took my German Shepherd at 5 months to a barbershop he was great you start them young so they are well rounded around anyone!!!

    at 8 weeks I had him around small baby’s since hour 1 I played In hit food to make him Understand I make the rules

  17. that dog should be wearing a muzzle if they don't know how he's going to react in public. the dog needs a front-clip harness to stop the pulling, and should have been socialized WAY before ten months old! This dog is almost fully grown, extremely powerful, and has never been out of the home before???? No dog trainer would recommend this style of training, whatever it is. he's beautiful and no doubt very intelligent but my pit was heeling and very familiar with the outside world even before ten months old. you gotta start early with these guys.
