A German dog fetched a live WWII grenade last weekend. Fortunately he was trained and set it down on command. “Drop It” is an important thing to teach your dog even if they’re much more likely to pick up a dead animal or another dog’s toy than a grenade.
Sadly in other news, a dog pulled a California woman in front of a train killing them both. There’s a pretty small chance your dog will pull you in front of a train, but if your dog pulls on its leash, you could be pulled off your feet or into traffic. Saffron used to pull steadily on her leash so though I wasn’t likely to be pulled off my feet, I did start having severe wrist and elbow pain.
