Yesterday my dog, Pearl, refused to mind me when a delivery truck came in the yard. I was in the brooder shed and not near the kennel. I have a fenced area near the shed.
I locked the dogs in to "teach", well remind actually, them to listen. The dogs sat by the gate and looked sad. It appears Bert Jr wanted to comfort them.
Bert is a "toad" he is a 3/4 Cornish Cross and 1/4 Dixie Rainbow. So he is a BIG guy. He was actually sitting by them outside the fence looking in and visiting with the dogs, but when I came out and went for my IPhone he got up and walked around.
