Clever Sheep Who Thinks He’s a Dog Does Tricks

A clever Dutch spotted sheep named Flause, who lives at the Yew Tree Farm School in the English town of Sittingbourne, Kent, thinks he’s a dog and does a fantastic array of on-command tricks usually reserved for canines. According to his trainer Millie Clark, Flause responded very well to clicker training, which came as a surprise to her.

His trainer, Millie Clark, was shocked when the young sheep responded so well to clicker training, a form of positive reinforcement typically used to coach canines. …She has already attempted to train pigs, horses, goats and sheep, but says Flause has responded better than any other animal – including their dogs.
