No idea. I can't tell from my PC. But that rabbit pelt idea is a good idea. We used it to help the sight hounds with low drive, chase the lure.

What you describe is basically a breed description of the Tervuren. I know a few with the same traits. They are very active working dogs and need not just physical but a lot of mind exercise as well.

Yep, one of the "great" results of this device that's not designed with the dog in mind but with the laziness of its owner.
