Mutt is a complete natural with animals. Once he is able to truly connect with the trained dogs, he very much only needs the barest of commands for them to do his bidding. This ability has come to the point where it has become more easier for other people to get along with his dog trainees than it is with him. This trait of his was honed since he was a child growing up surrounded with many pets. At one point, he even foiled a burglary by being able to keep his pet dogs from revealing their presence to the intruder until the crook was completely surrounded.

Of all the dogs he has trained over the years, Junkyard is the one who he has connected to with the most. Together, Mutt proves he's not man's best friend but dogs'.
