Those amazing dogs

By
Real Estate Services with Marte Cliff Copywriting

I'm a great admirer of dogs and all the ways that they contribute to the world.

This video doesn't show them saving lives, but shows how incredibly smart they are, and how they can be taught. I'm also a bit in awe of the trainers - and wish I had that kind of talent and patience.

Check out this video of sheep herders in Wales - and their dogs - just having a bit of fun:

Pacita - I was amazed too.

Marge - I've never had the pleasure of watching sheep dogs work, but know I would enjoy it.

Michael - Makes me wish we had sheep around here so I could go watch.

Erv - Training really does make a difference. I did obedience and then agility classes with one of my dogs and we both had a blast. Then I used what I learned about obedience training when the next one joined the family. Of course, a lot of what you learn is training the person in how to communicate with the dog so they actually understand what you're asking them to do.

Nancy - or maybe at least an extra measure of grain?

Marte~I saw this awhile ago, but just HAD to watch and it gave me goosebumps!! First of all, directing animals for a movie is a GIANT issue, both for time and money. These folks worked so incredibly well together and talk about CREATIVE!  That Mona Lisa took a DAMNED LONG TIME TO DO.

Can you imagine the hours? Just figuring out where each of those sheep belonged - let alone instructing the dogs to put them there. I know they had to have gotten frustrated at times, but the looks on their faces said they also enjoyed the heck out of the accomplishment.

Inna - Most dogs really are smart. They just need a human who is equally smart to show them what's expected from them.
