Netizen asks: Hello teacher, I have three dogs, one golden retriever, one border shepherd and one teddy. In fact, they are usually very well-behaved and there is nothing wrong with them. There is just one question that makes me curious to ask. I go out to walk them at 6 o'clock every morning, and sometimes I encounter an embarrassment.


The three of them will bark at them every time they see the sanitation workers far away on the road. I have to stop them a few times before stopping.
