Dogs and string/cord/rope

Postby Event Horizon on January 3rd, 2019, 11:53 pm 

Over a great many years, I have witnessed dogs having big problems with string, rope, cord and chain.

Tethered dogs often wind around and around in a predominantly anticlockwise vector until they almost choke themselves.

Dogs on a chain will take off after something only to darn near hang itself when the slack runs out.

I used to have a dog who liked me making knots in a rope for him to undo again.

Why can't our canine friends get to grips with something as simple as string?

Most human folks can barely come to grips with string theory... so dogs may be a bit hard pressed to do any better ;^P

Best wishes,

Hell, humans can barely even tie their shoe laces anymore. Sales of clogs continually rises. And there are multiple youtube videos of people running into glass doors.

In response to the OP, what about border collies?

Are border collies better at string or rope? They are smart; Smarter than the average peasant around here anyway.

The RAF police dog team uses German Shepherds in their amazing displays. When I was in the services, my squad helped them at Earls Court in 1987. Those may well have the measure of rope and suchlike.
