Using Their Heads

by Elizabeth
(Canada)

Has anyone ever noticed their Great Pyr shoving their head through the person's legs and gently nudging them down the stairs?

My boy does this all the time and I have a friend whose Pyr does the same. I wonder if that is how they get sheep to move?

Yep...ours, too. We advise the men especially to 'keep their knees together' during greetings at the door haha. Our Pyr has the biggest grin on his face when he does that, I swear he gets a kick out of the squeak of surprise and the laughter.
Great big goofy with a sense humor. Makes sense that it would be a useful way to move sheep.
Whatever...keep the knees together! : )

by: Jackie Wierengo

My boy, Kip, does this all the time. He's not out to sniff "parts" but he stands there waiting for a head scratch. I think it's hysterical but because he's a registered therapy dog this behavior is not acceptable. I have to discourage this by turning sideways and redirecting him to sit for his attention. He also pushes from behind but because they're not herding dogs I don't think it has to do with pushing sheep along.
