Wolf uses “digging” instinct to “dig” – (displace) water. What’s notable is it’s persistence – dogs “give up” and manipulate a human to do things for them. (As do human children LOL) Which animal is more intelligent? The important observation is that each uses its intelligence in accord with “what works” in its particular environment. This applies also to humans.
Wolves are the wolf’s environment; humans are the domestic dog’s environment.
Fixation and persistence in the wild animal; fascinating contrast with domesticated (tame) behavior in dogs and humans. In humans, there is a range of behavior from wild predator to tame prey, also due to degree of domestication.
