In the UK, one detective private investigation has taught his dog to find the missing cats. It sounds a bit unbelievable, but yet no less. Colin Butcher - a private detective engaged in tracing pets, teach your dog that's such a useful trade.
In an interview with Colin Butcher told that during his more than two decades of work experience, he received dozens of calls a week about the loss of domestic cats. And once he thought that, in principle, it would be nice to get a dog, which would in that it wanted to help. The only problem remains the reaction of dogs to cats in this situation.
By the way, this idea of a detective put things in the old days in the police when Colin has repeatedly sought the help of a police dog, which found the drugs, bombs or just out on the trail of the killer. At that moment, Butcher and thought, well, what if the dog nadressirovat sought not heroin, but, for example, cats.
Next came the difficult period - the correct selection of dog breeds. There was a need to consider several factors. Firstly, the size of the dog should be relatively small. Still, cats love to be hammered into place so close that a large dog in life there will not climb. Second, the dog must be non-aggressive. Kota fact it is necessary only to find, not even tear. And third, be smart enough. Since training ahead for difficult and responsible.
By the way, Pray, Butcher current partner was not the first female candidate. In front of her "audition" has visited about a dozen dogs. But, fortunately for the Colin, his choice stopped on polutorogodovalom cocker spaniel, who gladly gave the former owners. Especially because Moli very successfully been tested. Run it on the farm, where there are more than ten cats, Butcher was pleasantly surprised to see that Spaniel completely indifferent foreign animals. Pray all the attention was focused on the host and his job.
Butcher pointed out that it was nine long months of training. Where is the most important, perhaps, teach the dog to lay down quietly on the ground and not on your nelly not frighten found a kitten.
His first successful mission Moli completed in February this year. And to this day an amazing cocker spaniel successfully finds the furry "poteryashek". She has more than eleven goals.
It is noteworthy that the very Spaniel refers to his work with less admiration than involuntary spectators of the show. After all, for Moli, it's just another fun game.
