Rugby has been put in plenty of questionable situations. At least he thinks so. I can't decide if it is his nature to trust my judgement, or if in the three years of Obedience training, Rugby has learned to trust my judgement. It is probably a combination of the two.
I went back through some of our photos and found plenty of examples of those situations. Ones where Rugby had to trust me, and hope for the best!
Like the time I had him balance on the edge of Diesel's fireplace mantel, while K.C. investigated from the ground.
Or the time when I had Rugby ride in the swinging basket while one of his classmates (Sugar, the lab) carried him around.
Sometime before or after our Thursday night class, Rugby participated in a stunt where he "placed" onto a five year old.
He also makes a very good broad jump, if you lose or break one of your boards.
Not to mention, he is trusting with other dogs too. Meet Tiny, Rugby's body guard.
I have quite a few more, but I think I should stop while I am ahead. No matter if it is a breed trait, or one that was due primarily to training, life is so much funner with a trusting dog.
