Dog the Bounty Hunter
Dog the Bounty Hunter not only captures criminals and puts them in jail; he tries to help them make their life better.

Dog the Bounty Hunter is a reality television show on A&E that follows Duane “Dog” Chapman and his family on bounty hunts. When people miss court or try to bond jump; the judge puts out a bond revocation and then they must capture the criminal or they lose their money they put up to get the person out of jail. He encourages them to try to turn their lives around.

This is part of society that most shows don’t show. He started his career 27 years ago after he spent 18 months in a Texas prison. Now he is living on the right side of the law because he doesn’t ever want to go back to prison. Dog has helped catch the most dangerous people, and even a high-profile rapist. “He credits most of his success from getting the most out of his informants.” He says “70% of all his captures happen because some ol’ American has turned them in by giving him information.

He has the bondsman business with his wife “Beth” and their kids also work for him. They are located in Hawaii and even do bounty hunting in Denver Colorado. He helps fellow bondsman named Bobby Brown when he goes there to visit. They originally started in Denver but have since moved to Hawaii. They still do bounties in Denver but that is not their main focus. Every criminal that he captures, he uses his own past experiences to show the fugitives that they can change, and today is the day to start. He doesn’t use real bullets when he goes on bounties; he uses bean bag ammunition or pepper balls. When he captures fugitives with speed or ice on them he makes them smash it on the ground and pour water on it.

For the criminals that want help and get better he will offer them a chance to get into rehab. Beth helps mothers get their lives straight and…...

...The results of the study scaled the dogs on five dimensions of behavior temperament: playfulness, curiosity/fearfulness, chase-proneness, sociability, and aggressiveness (De Palma et al., 2005). Dogs living in rescue shelters were assessed as demonstrating a low degree of playfulness, showing distraction by the environment when being enticed to play. The sheltered dogs also scored low on curiosity but, high on fearful behavior. The cortisol levels for the sheltered dogs were significantly higher than the cortisol levels of canines living in households, indicative of stress and anxiety associated with shelter lifestyle. Shelter dogs showed a low proportion of chase-proneness supported by demonstrations of low physical activity and excitability. Shelter dogs were assessed as exhibiting low levels of sociability toward conspecies but, a high sociability when concerning humans (De Palma et al., 2005). This trend was also demonstrated when observing levels of aggressiveness; the dogs seemed more antagonistic toward conspecies than humans. It should be noted that shelter dogs displayed rare bouts of hostile behavior and results were supported by little data. It is interesting to find a set of shared characteristics existing in canines living in rescue shelters. Such findings lead one to speculate if the shelter environment may be partly responsible for inducing behavior characteristics? After all, dogs living in shelters are subjected to a variety of stressors including......

Hunter Games

...The Hunter Games When a man goes from feeling completely in control as a hunter to feeling the vulnerability of the hunted he may do things he never thought he would. Sangar Rainsford is a master big game hunter who lives for the hunt. Never before has Rainsford given any thought as to how his prey may feel, he only thinks and knows the ways of a hunter. Similarly General Zaroff lives for the hunt just as Rainsford, he is quite a skilled hunter perhaps even better. Many would easily say without a second thought the short story, "The Most Dangerous Game," written by Richard Connell, is either completely commercial or completely literary. However, considering the emphasis on philosophy, logic vs reason, danger, and fear one can see the classic is a combination of both. "The Most Dangerous Game" could most certainly be read solely for entertainment purposes due to its constant plot twists making this story a commercial fiction. All throughout this short story suspense plays a huge roll in making this commercial. Suspense can be seen the first morning of the game, "The generals' eyes had left the ground and were traveling inch by inch up the tree. Rainsford froze there, every muscle tensed for a spring" (23). The suspense in this moment is off the charts. Rainsford is laying in a tree praying he isn't spotted, and as the general slowly glances up the tree he stops right before he notices him and smiles. Readers love moments of extreme suspense, it has the readers on the edge...

...Dog Swimming a. importance of swimming Just as swimming for people is recognized for its conditioning and therapeutic value, so has it been recognized for “man’s best friend” -the dog. For dogs that are overweight, need conditioning, or have disabilities that make normal exercise painful or inappropriate, swimming can provide an excellent alternative or supplement to ground-based programs. Also, swimming can provide dogs excellent rehabilitation therapy, aerobic conditioning, exercise, relaxation, interaction with other dogs and great of fun! b. how to swim Dogs, like all animals, have the natural ability to swim but generally have to learn water confidence before a specific swimming program can be developed. There are two swimming pools in our company. A training pool provides the initial swimming introduction and allows the dog to gain their water confidence. The main pool allows the dog to swim in 30 yard laps or to swim freely to retrieve, train or just swim for the fun of it. Swim Center staff performs the initial swimming of the dog, but owners are encouraged to take over once the dog has graduated from the training class. Dogs wear a chest harness for support and are walked down a gentle sloping ramp into the water. For dogs with paralysis or inability to walk, they are gently lifted and placed into the water and supported by the harness, or in some cases a flotation device may be used, while they develop their swimming stroke. Once the dog is......

Bounty Hunters

...For this assignment I chose to do bounty hunters. There are a lot of people that are in this profession that like to be called fugitive recovery agents rather than bounty hunters. This is because when people hear bounty hunter, it tends to automatically make most think about negative things, or the first thing that comes to mind is something from the old days when people use to post dead or alive posters with an award on it. Some of the more accepted titles other than bounty hunter are bail bond recovery agent as mentioned before, bail officer, fugitive recovery officer, bail agent, bail enforcement agent, and fugitive recovery agent. Private investigators and bounty hunters have some of the same job duties in common which include, conducting interviews, performing surveillance, getting in contact with the subject, skip tracing which is when they track somebody to a current resident or location, and if a subject is located, some form of paperwork might be served. The private investigator could serve the individual legal papers and the bounty hunter could serve a warrant. The bounty hunter works with the bail bondsman in order to re-arrest the individual and place them in jail. This is usually because the bail bondsman’s client has not followed his or her bail contract. Usually the offense is when the individual fails to appear in court after promising to go. The first bounty hunter is Pat Garrett, and he is the one responsible for hunting down Billy the Kid. His......

Bounty Hunting

...Bounty hunting began in England in the 1200s when bail was not money but an actual person. At that time in English history, a custodian was designated by the court to keep track of the accused and to present him at trial. If the custodian failed to present the accused, the custodian would be forced to stand trial in place of the accused. In 1679, a structured bail system was formed, and the British Parliament created and passed the Habeas Corpus Act which allowed defendants to be released on monetary bail. The United States Constitution later adopted the Habeas Corpus Act of the Eighth Amendment (ratified December 15, 1791), which prohibited the setting of excessive bail, and the Judiciary Act of 1789, which served to identify bailable offenses, but it is also the foundation of what we now know as the U.S. judicial court system. The U.S. Supreme Court case, Taylor v. Taintor, in 1873, gave bounty hunters the authority to act as agents of bail bondsmen. This court ruling also allowed bounty hunters a number of overarching rights, such as the right to pursue fugitives in other states and, if necessary, break into a fugitive’s house, without a warrant, for the purpose of returning them on revoked bonds. It wasn’t until the passage of the Bail Reform Act of 1966 that laws relating to bail really began to take their current shape. The Bail Reform Act of 1966 included verbiage that permitted prisoners to be released on as little bail as possible to ensure a return for trail. The......

The term "domestic dog" is generally used for both domesticated and feral varieties. The dog was the first domesticated animal[4][5] and has been the most widely kept working, hunting, and pet animal in human history.[citation needed] The word "dog" can also refer to the male of a canine species,[6] as opposed to the word "bitch" which refers to the female of the species.

...Domestic dogs inherited complex behaviors from their wolf ancestors, which would have been pack hunters with complex body language. These sophisticated forms of social cognition and communication may account for their trainability, playfulness, and ability to fit into human households and social situations, and these attributes have given dogs a relationship with humans that has enabled them to become one of the most successful species on the planet today.[22]:pages95-136 The dogs' value to early human hunter-gatherers led to them quickly becoming ubiquitous across world cultures. Dogs perform many roles for people, such as hunting, herding, pulling loads, protection, assisting police and military, companionship, and, more recently, aiding handicapped individuals. This impact on human society has given them the nickname "man's best friend" in the Western world. In some cultures, however, dogs are also a source of meat.[23][24] Early roles Wolves, and their dog descendants, would have derived significant benefits from living in human camps—more safety, more reliable food, lesser caloric needs, and more chance to breed.[25] They would have benefited from humans' upright gait that gives them larger range over which to see potential predators and prey, as well as color vision that, at least by day, gives humans better visual discrimination.[25] Camp dogs would also have benefitted from human tool use, as in bringing down larger prey and controlling fire for a range of......

...enlgish 921 potty The dog is a loving companion to a man. He is happy to go everywhere with his master. He shows his affection for his master by wagging his tail and licking his hand or face. Dogs were not always like this. Overtime humans have domesticated dogs into making them loving pets. At one point dogs were able to pee wherever they want, eat whatever they want, and do whatever they want. Now we provide our dogs boundaries and train them to become our best friends. Eating and playing comes naturally to dogs just as it does to humans when they are born. Just like human babies one thing that does not come naturally to dogs is being potty trained. Adding a furry litte friend to the family sounds like a lot of fun and many would not think of it as such a difficult task to do since all dogs do is eat and play which obviously does not need to be taught to then but the hard part comes when it is time for them to relieve themselves and they choose do to this task on your living room floors, bedrooms, and bathrooms.

Mutiny on the Bounty

...Leadership Comparison and Contrast Mutiny on the Bounty Brenau University Dana Nelms September 2, 2015 Abstract Noted as the most notable munity in the history of navigation, Mutiny on the Bounty descripts the voyages of Captain Bligh and subsequent mutiny of this crew. In 1787, William Bligh was appointed the captain of the Bounty. The mission of the trip was to travel to Tahiti to obtain breadfruit trees for transplanting in the West Indies for the purpose of producing food for the slaves owned by the English nobility. There where multiple reasons for the mutiny, however the main cause was the leadership style of Captain Bligh. He was viewed as a tyrant on the ship, acting more of a dictator than a leader. The second-in-command, Fletcher Christian had a participative or facilitator type leadership style that caused conflict. The different styles often caused strife among the two men, ultimately leading to the munity. (The Bounty 1984) This paper discusses the comparison and contract of Captain Bligh and Fletcher Christian leadership styles. The Leaders The two main characters of the voyage are Captain Bligh and his second –in-command, Fletcher Christian. The trip to the Tahiti was one of difficulty in regards to overcrowding, lack of food or water; also what the crew considers the tranny of Captain Bligh. The stay on the island was beneficial to the crew as they enjoyed the tropics and became friendly with the natives, especially with the women. Upon......

Dogs in Art

...The Changing Status of Dogs: One Bark at a Time Dylan Sunderland Why do pet owners have paintings and photographs of there pets? Author Katherine Grier writes, “Since the seventeenth century, having portraits made of family members has been one of the most important ways that Americans made statements about their feelings toward one another, their status in their communities, and their desire to preserve the history of their families for posterity” (124). As time progressed animals that were kept as pets began to have different roles for their owners and now they too are being considered a family member. Pets are slowly taking over the world of art as their own roles within the families are changing. Clearly, having pets placed in different forms of art have been used for centuries and they all tell there own different stories as to why they were chosen to be a part of the picture. How about a trip through time from the seventeenth century to the twentieth century to see how dogs have progressed in their roles as pets? Seventeenth century artist, Diego Velázquez, painted the piece of work known as Infante Felipe Próspero. This painting was produced in 1659 using oil on canvas. The location of production is not stated on where the piece was retrieved, but the assumption can be made that it was produced in a Spanish native area because of the title and the author history. This eloquently painted piece of work shows a young human standing next to her......

The Hunter

...The Hunter I'm the one who hunts. Audible tones scream in my ears. The day has begun. I awake from the dreams and arise to begin making energy. The smell of heaven enters my nose. Caffeine poured into my traveling mug My Shimano and gear is loaded. Its time to leave. My journey begins on the road, diving through the turns as if traveling on a roller coaster. Speeding down the path as if chasing my prey I just can't arrive soon enough. My thoughts are running wild. "What a beautiful day. Not to hot, not to cold, the wind is calm, and the fog is thick. It cannot get any better than this." Packing the steel frame with my Shimano and gear, I begin to set sail. This is what I've been waiting for. As the sun starts to rise the reflection of the mountains glisten off the water. The essence of the outdoors overwhelms my senses. I move into position to get the best angle. Anchors away! Reaching for my gear, I make the first toss. "I'm in heaven" As I sit and wait for the prey I think about life and, I'm interrupted? There's a bite! Wait for it, wait for it, set the hook! Fish on! Set the drag, the fight begins, and its a big one! My heart beats faster with every leap from the water. I plea to the heavens I don't lose her. She getting closer. I got her! Dinner is served....

Families want to have security with their dogs; they don’t want them to be TOO friendly to just anyone but they don’t want them to be too aggressive either.
