The Schipperke and the Art of Escape

The stature of the petite sized Schipperke often belies the vast intelligence contained inside the little dog. Many owners do not realize the extent of their dog's tenacity until they are being given a run for their money.

A Very Smart Dog

The truth is that the Sussex Spaniel has a reputation for having a good intelligence, but not considered very bright. This, however, comes from people who may misunderstand some of the behavior of the breed and see only a stubborn dog that may take time to house and obedience train. They forget to notice that the dog has skills in game hunting that make it excel in one environment and do poorly in another one. Intelligence isn't just about learning how to sit on command, it's also about how well the dog functions within its native environment. In the Sussex Spaniel's native environment of England, the dog is highly prized for its contribution to small game hunting. It has a great joy of the hunt and its smaller frame allows it to search the underbrush much more effectively than larger dogs. The dog's coat is a golden liver color that blends in with the trees at sunset, making it hard to spot for the prey. It is intensely loyal and a very friendly dog. It can even retrieve game that has fallen in waterways and bring it back to the hunter. [...]

The Welsh Terrier and Terrier Energy

Terriers are a group of dogs that has a well documented history and purpose and which includes a wide variety of dog breeds. These dogs were mostly developed in the British Isles to hunt and kill vermin, such as rats, foxes or any other game that could damage crops or wreak havoc on farms. These dogs were bred to be small and sturdy, so that they could follow their prey into dens and burrows. Once they gained in popularity, they were also used on hunts. Larger hunting dogs, usually hounds, would chase quarry that would often hide in small spaces or dens; the terriers would be released and they would "go to ground", or enter the small hiding places, to flush out the hunted animal.
