"I'm Twitch.  I am about 4 years old and I love life!  I love exploring and I love hunting."

My only fault is I go a bit deaf when I am wanted back, but who can blame me? When I've found a great scent I just have to follow it to the very end, I don’t understand why my Mum doesn’t seem to get that!

 

Anyway I am going to tell you about the vital role I play at the Naughty Dog School.

 

I am a Bully Magnet.  

 

This means that I am a dog with little status in the pack and I am therefore at risk of being bullied by dogs that are setting their ambitions high to become the leader of the pack!

How it works is like this; each dog that comes for an assessment meets lots of my friends. Each of those dogs tells Lynette and her team something about the dog being assessed.

Most dogs are eager to make their way up the ranking of our school and the first one they start with is me.

However, if I believe that I am stronger I will tell them so.

 

Now this is where it gets a bit tricky because in order to go up the rank they have to make me submit.

I don’t have an ounce of aggression in me so I never fight back. Lynette always makes sure I'm supported by my housemate Bahle and T'ealc or Ty.

When the new dog decides that I am easy to control a stronger dog comes along to protect me and tells the other dog that their behaviour is not going to be tolerated!

It may seem that I am always on the rough end of the stick but I love my work at the Naughty Dog School and from time to time I am able to do what I do best which is get a frightened dog to play.  

I am looked after and made to feel safe and because of this I love my job!
