Many would have heard about Da Vinci, the great artist from the Renaissance period who has contributed largely to the world through his genius craft in painting and in the world of arts. But, have you ever heard about Dog Vinci? A talented pooch also tagged as “The Greatest Canine Artist” of his generation.
He is also a well-known artist among the canine family, and many knew him as Dagger, the great canine artist. Dagger has paints Yvonne, his owner, almost every day. Like, DaVinci, Dagger has his own way of painting his subject. His brushwork is vividly painted. It is thrilling and is filled with different vibrant shades.
Her owner, Yvonne, said in an interview with Mashable that few of DaVinci’s work is immensely abstract. She also said that her dog’s works seem to have hidden meaning or images in them.
She added that Dagger was not much fond of painting before. “Dagger didn’t always want to be a painter,” she said. But, as he grew up and was able to undergo a series of training as a service dog, he developed his talent and fondness in the artistic craft.
Yvonne said that when Dagger was just undergoing training to be a service dog, he was trained to push things like drawers. He was also taught how to close doors and grasp things using his mouth. From there, the commands and training he learned were modified. It made him learn how to paint. Yvonne told that while modifying the commands during his training, she would use ‘push’ when meaning to paint.’
The genius talent of Dagger is very rare. He is really focused during his painting sessions and makes sure he is grasping the brush correctly to paint his subject properly. No wonder, people call him one of the greatest canine artist of his generation.
