County 4-H'ers offered a unique pespective into the nature of man's best friend
Dog behavior consultant Cassia Drake of Minneapolis noted that a small, dark-haired Sheltie seemed stressed.
As she looked at the little dog who wasn't interested in a treat reward from his handler, she pointed out how his ears were laid back, and he was licking his lips. "He's just saying, 'This is a little worrisome.'"
It was one of the first of many lessons Drake taught Saturday at the 4-H Dog Project Supersession in Willmar.
