Not sure if this is related, but it tells something about "dog" behaviour.
Did you smell anything?
A few years back we had a dog ( Berner Sennen) A large male, this dog was the most lazy one, you will ever meet. Never impressed by anything, always
calm and sweet.
I lived in a city at that time and the dog came from a local breeder. As I live in the Netherlands, the dog had never any contact with large wild
live predators, as we don't have them in our country. (We have foxes, and some escaped domestic cats )
Anyway, i went for a walk into the park and there was a Circus in town. As we approached the circus camp, our dog started already to hesitate, didn't
want to come along.
We approached a wagon from the blinded side, and the dog got more and more nervous, then when i walked around the wagon, there were tigers inside the
wagon (behind bars, but visible) At the same second my dog took off, only to stop two miles further being very scared.
I could smell the penetrating odor of those tigers ass well, but what wondered me was the fact that without the Dog knowing or had ever seen tigers,
he already got nervous from the smell and freaked out from the sight.
So did you smell anything?
And do people know if dogs have instincts that can tell a smell is dangerous even without them recognising it?
