My dog, Gus, a border collie Aussie mix pup decided to do some art on Ofelias horns... he's grounded. No more goat time for Gus. One eighth funny, seven eighths scary. He isn't trained to herd so he just hangs out with three does in a field.

Yeah, Gus was in big trouble. Before this, he chewed through the strap on the gate a the three girls got out! I just don’t get how he did it and why she let him?

She can't feel him chewing on it, there is no nerves there, to tell her unless he got into the quick.

She did feel the dog touching her and should of walked or ran away.
But it didn't bother her for some reason.
It is very odd, but did happen.

Sadly you cannot trust the dog with the goats again after doing that. :(

He needed something he can chew on. Instead of horns.

He is a bc and even though he may not be trained to herd he still jas those instincts. This may have just been him being bored or trying out a new skill set that is very undesirable. He should not have goat alone time anymore.
