Do you think that Betsy (also named Betty in the article, if I understand this right) was taught differently and this is the result of her teaching?

For example, during training the owner may have moved objects from original locations before sending her to retrieve.

Another example could also be that the owner taught her by moving with her from room to room while looking for objects.

Just a thought.

Hi Con

Most interesting. We have neighbours with problem dogs and they won't do anything to constrain them. They follow none of the leash laws at all. They have chased our Cassowaries away. They have had hundreds of dollars worth of fines but they persist in letting their Great Dane and Dalmatian run wild in the neighbourhood. Awful.
