I have been around dogs all my life.
Once, while working in a young family.s house, performing renovation work, the two border collies they had (to actually help corral their two toddler children) watched me intently as I went from garage to basement, several times. In the course of my work, i deviated from this routine to cut a few holes into their new addition. One of the BC’s gently put her jaws around my wrist as to pull me back to my previous path. At the same moment, the wife/mother became alarmed, tried to explain the dog’s actions and plaintively told me she wouldn’t hurt me. I knew what the dog was doing: she was gently guiding me back to where she thought I belonged. There was no harm and no foul. The dogs were doing their job. Pure and simple. I laughed it off and assured the owner that I knew exactly what the dog was doing and they were fortunate to have such well trained and dedicated ‘’toddler sitters’’.
