Since moving to the mountains, the dogs have shown great abilities to adapt to a new environment. I do believe that living on a farm helped the dogs, they were used to running around in the woods and pastures. Now they have streams, steep terrain and a forest to roam. Not a single dog has been lost or required me to go look for them except the Shitsu. She decided to go visit our nearest neighbor and sat on their deck and barked at them. She did finally return home on her own.
