As I said elsewhere, Normie had his 'worst dog' day at Obedience yesterday. So a friend sent me this to cheer me up. It seems that even those well-trained service dogs don't start out that way.
And that can handle a dog that now knows how to open the fridge.I think my favourite bit is him opening the fridge door with such enthusiasm that he takes the fridge with it! Definitely the wrong temperament for that job, but I hope he found a home that appreciates him for what he is.
????? Seems like something our Aussie would have done!Someone I know had a Belgian Shepherd, which is a fairly closely related breed. During the puppy chew-everything phase she taught the dog to give up prized items by trading them for treats. One day the dog brought her a sock. She gave him a treat. Then he came back with another sock. She gave him another treat. He came back with a third sock. At this point she got suspicious and followed him. Turns out he had gone through the clean laundry, pulled out all the socks, and set them aside as currency for his newly hatched treat exchange scheme.
