    No surprise, humans have always been quick to domesticate and train animals.

    Did humans train the dog or the dog train the humans?
    The development and success of both are, I think, closely linked. No other animal has as close a relationship with humans as the dog, excepting perhaps the horse and dogs were domesticated long before horses.
    Scientific studies have shown that success in hunting is increased very significantly when using dogs, which I think contributed in a big way to the success and expansion of early human populations. The "benefits" dogs derive from their associations with people have lead to them being very successful too.
    As we are sharing dog photos I suppose I should include mine.

    All true terriers evolved from only a few regional types only a couple of hundred years ago. They will take on quarry much bigger than themselves. I know that terriers are still used to hunt wild boar in various parts of the World.
    I have two dogs that are terriers, Ive already had to pick up dead skunks twice from my backyard. The others are two rescued chihuahuas and a Texas heeler.
