I'm a landrace dog fancier, birder and amateur arachnologist. I'm also a wildlife conservationist working in the tiger reserves of central India with Satpuda Foundation. Founder of the INDog Project (www.indog.co.in) and the INDog Club. I worked with urban free-ranging dogs of Mumbai for 14 years.

This blog is for aboriginal breed enthusiasts. It is part of the INDog Project www.indog.co.in. Only INDogs (Indian Pariah) and INDog-mix mongrels are featured here. The two are NOT the same, do please read the text on the right to understand the difference. Our aim: to create awareness about the primitive natural breed called the Indian Pariah Dog/INDog. I sometimes feature other landrace breeds too.

Blacky jumps the bars



One city dog who never gets bored is Manik Godbole's Blacky. His owner keeps him busy learning new tricks, so he never gets stuck in a rut. Dogs benefit from new activities and mental stimuli as much as humans do, after all...though we don't realize it most of the time.

I love this picture of him jumping over bars on their building terrace.

Hi All! it would be unjust, if only blacky is appreciated for jumping over the bars, actually, tommy starts jumping over them the moment i assemble them, and he is so frisky that, inspite of all attempts by myself and my sis, we could not catch him on camera!!we clicked photos wherein he is abt to jump or has already completed the jump! blacky does it slowly so we could get his snaps fortunately.try them for ur pooches and they will surely enjoy! regards, manik.

It's a great idea. How did you get them to jump? I've taught Lalee to come when she's called, sit still for photos and not chase other dogs, but otherwise she's practically uneducated!
