Just like Lassie in the movies, all dogs inherently want to be your hero! The trick is whether or not they have the rights skills.
In a recent study, researchers learned that a good portion of the dogs would rescue their owner simply by the owner calling out in distress.
We know dogs are smart. We know that they love their owners too and are loyal. The researchers said, “most dogs want to rescue you, but they need to know how.” Might be worth the extra money in obedience school after all and definitely worth taking your dog with you if you are an adventurer!
