Can dogs climb trees?

Our question this week was:

My dog is a Border Collie/Australian Cattle Dog mix we were told at the animal shelter when we adopted him. He, of course, loves to herd things, especially squirrels. He will even climb trees, yes, like a cat. Do you know of other dogs that will climb trees? He only does that when a squirrel is up in it.

Hi – thanks for your email. You wrote that your Border Collie/Australian Cattle Dog mix loves heard things and even climbs trees. This is very cool. I don't know many dogs that climb trees. Let me toss this question out to our dog lovers and I'll create an article of their stories.

If you have a dog that climbs trees – share your story with us. Go to:
Dogs Climbing Trees Survey

We have a photo of a dog climbing a tree , go to: Dogs having Fun and look for : "Jax loves trees". It is something! Go to:

Until next time,
