I wish I didn't have dial up
That's pretty much the Rattie drill. If they get into a nest of the critters, some Ratties will pin a rat with a paw while they are killing the one in his jaws. The good ones take that stuff very seriously.Oddly (or maybe not) she doesn't do anything with her kill. She kills it, drops it and moves on to the next one. She doesn't play with it; she doesn't bring to us. I've seen her walk right over a carcass ten minutes after she killed it and not even look at it.
Oh see, that is not true at all. The Rottweiler just has a different style then some of the other herding breeds. Instead of chasing them, he chose to get them to follow him where they were needed to go.Using a half dozen cows to herd one Rottweiler doesn't seem very efficient.
on the subject of doing what they are bred to do & natural instincts, heres my drahthaar pointing at 8 1/2 weeks
LwUOqcmEDTkDoesn't get any more instinctive than that!
And on the subject of herding... This video is amazing
oh i guess its not cool thenYou do realize this video is fake...
notice the sheep with the border collie head.
most of it is just someone playing around with graphic programs.
Wow shes stiff as a statueHere's one of Libby pointing, it was taken back in March.
Yah, she really likes the hunting "game", lol!Wow shes stiff as a statue
Rottweilers were originally bred as drovers. Mostly for moving cattle but were used as multi-purpose farm dogs. They are also used as carting dogs to haul the meat or milk to market and guard their masters purse on the way home.I never knew rottweilers were sheep herding dogs either!
I am sure that is exactly what they are doing. First time out, it takes a little while to "click on" but they were all doing pretty well. Not all dogs ever do "click on" some have no interest at all. Some are down right aggressive to the sheep. Neither of those 2 things are good.Inga, those dogs in the videos look like they are really trying to figure out the fine line between "herding" and "chasing"!
