These three dogs are quite a sight. Of course, at first, you don’t see three dogs. You only see two dogs in a canoe floating down the river. You have no idea how they got there or how they’ll get out, but after a short while, you realize that they’re stuck and need help.
Thankfully, their friend jumps in the river and tugs them to shore. Their friend had quite a tough swim out to them, also. Ok, so you might have some questions. Like how did those two dogs get in the canoe and how did the third dog know to pull the rope and get the canoe to shore.
Well, all three are siblings and have been raised by the river. Robie, the black lab, loved to swim, and after a while, his owners taught him to retrieve the canoe. Every time the canoe would go in the river, the other two dogs would jump inside. So eventually, Robie learned to tug his two siblings.
This video starts out with you questioning the safety of the dogs in the canoe; then, you find yourself questioning how the third dog knew exactly what to do to save his friends. It turns out, this was a training exercise and, by all means, a very successful one at that. Don’t miss this clever ‘rescue’ in the video below.
