Default Hackles Easily

So I'm just curious how many of you guys have dogs that hackle a lot and easily.

I've been noticing with Didgie that she will get her razor back going at the drop of a hat. Playing with Traveler? Hackle. See something in the distance? Hackle. Playing with toy? HACKLE!

And it's not one of those sissy hackles either, it's full back and down the tail. It makes me giggle to see this little puppy with it.

Someone walked into the field we were in. The tail makes me laugh the hardest

Ozzy does. Enzo doesn't unless someone is pushing/bullying her. Knox will get a mohawk going pretty quickly. New girl, not sure yet.

Ike does, no one else does. Although, I have noticed Limit's hair trying to stand up but I think it's too short

Bodhi does.. she just did it barking at birds in the back garden. She does it when she's wooing, when she's spooked and around some (most) strange dogs. They also go all down her back
"Dogs are our link to paradise. They do not know jealousy or discontent. To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden, where doing nothing wasn't boring, it was peace."

Bodhi is the opposite of ignorance, the insight into reality which destroys mental afflictions and brings peace.

Zander can do it pretty easily. Excited, playing, or even just streching after a nap. Hackles. Mostly only over his shoulders, then over his butt and down his tail. It makes his chest look HUGE, though.

In the car everytime we pass something even slightly dog on leash-like. Weed wackers, shopping carts, pulling backpacks, I giggle and smooth her down, mine dog needs glasses, an actual dog can pass by and she'll miss it barking at a lawn mower

My dogs all hackle easily but Kim's are epic lol. She has such long thick bristles in her oat, and she hackles from neck to rump. Over the most inane a crow landing in the yard. Stalker-crouch-and-hackle. Cracks me up.
