Our 13 current dogs are mongrels from Hungarian animal shelters.
At the beginning of the project we settled on "waist-high" dogs for a better comparison with the tall wolves. The dogs arrive at us - just as the wolves - at the tender age of 10 days.
At this stage you are not able to recognize, wether the tiny puppy will become a large or a small dog and often also the parents are unknown, you will get at the end dogs of all sizes, colours and shapes.
For the direct comparison with the wolves the dogs as well live in packs in enclosures. In dog packs there are also pack leader s and a ranking. Our dogs live in large, fine enclosures with a heated doghouse for the winter and have -apart from their work to frolic.
