|Dogs have a proved to have a positive effect on goat behavior, said Franzel who often hiked the peak with her well-behaved dog, Morgan.
Most hikers kept their dogs on leashes but a few had them under good voice control, she said noting that the goats would immediately back away a hundred feet or so without fleeing the summit altogether.
“There were no reports of dogs chasing goats, nor any other concerns with canine hiking partners,” Hough said.
