He's great at evading during chase.
He'll get another dog to chase him (which he loves), but if the other dog starts pulling on him, Brick will change direction quickly.
The other dog cannot react that fast, so he/she overshoots Brick. By the time the other dog get slowed down enough to change course, Brick is gone.
It's kinda like watching a couple of fighter planes dog fighting. (I wonder if that's why they call it dog fighting? Hmmm.)
I've seen other slower dogs get run over by the faster dogs.
It's funny because as the faster dog starts closing on the slower one, the slower one starts barking like it's scared; and then it gets run over by the faster dog.
It's like they don't even realize they can change direction to avoid being caught.
But watching Brick, it's effortless, almost elegant how he manuevers while being chased.
|You need to get some video of Brick in action!|
My dalmo likes to do the chasing and he isnt very agile (just fast). He has run a number of dogs over. But whenever he comes across a dog like Brick he just cant change direction fast enough. He's a spoils sport and gives up chasing pretty soon which is always a disappointment to the chasee.
|reminds me of my sheepie and lab which i could watch all day. in fact i could watch all of 'em anytime. too much fun.|
i have to mention, if you ever have the opportunity to watch an afghan play, it's amazing. you'll enjoy and your dog or others are always looking wth, where did that dog go?!?
the affie will jump over them and change direction in midair.
|I'll try to get some video the next time we're at the park.|
|Chewie does the big jumping leaps - flipping directions in the air and twisting - so I guess I'd say he's good for a sheepdog. |
But Riley can run circles around him, in regard to really sharp turns...
Video sounds good - I love watching stuff like that.
