#DogsOfEN: Who’s the Boss?

My first trainer had a schutzhund-trained German Shepherd she called her assistant. The dog sat ringside during lessons and if a horse refused a fence, it would pounce in barking and bite at the horse’s heels. Unorthodox but I can’t say it wasn’t effective — our horses quickly learned that it was in their best interest to just jump the jump.

Who is REALLY running the show at your barn? From lessons to chores and even horse show weekends, these #DogsOfEN seem to have established a position of authority.
