Information on working terriers, dogs, natural history, hunting, and the environment, with occasional political commentary as I see fit. This web log is associated with the Terrierman.com web site.
Looks like a fun day for the dogs! I'll cop to being stoopid, but why does a dog have to turn around underground to exit head-first? Seahorse
A dog doesn't have to, but if it can, it generally will. Remember, everything is pitch dark underground, and everything is done by feel and smell and ear. All of the sensory equipment on a dog is on the front end!P
Well, shows what I know (not much!). I was thinking the dog would go in one end and exit out the other all headed, well, by the head. Or, pull the quarry out while backing up and out. I know settes can have incredible intricacies of design, but I sure need to learn a lot about how the dogs actually work them!Seahorse
