It's interesting to know what pets can do that make people more attached and love them more.
Mine dances to get a treat. She's smart, but I haven't put much time into training her. If you know some great hubs on teaching your pooch tricks, pass them on!
Codie: sit, stay, wait, down, dance, spin
Bella: sit, stay, wait, down, leave it, spin, roll over, wave, shake
MIA: sit, stay, wait, down, drop it, leave it, kisses, speak, shake and wave (and she can still do it while balancing on her back 2 legs- she's missing the other front leg)
A new study just came out that said all dogs have the ability to learn up to a 2 year old level and some dogs can learn up to a 4 year old level.
Most dogs can understand 4 year old MATH like addition and subtraction.
The average dog can understand 150 individual words while the smartest dogs can understand 350 words. But most of us just use the basic "sit" "stay" "speak" type stuff but our dogs can learn full sentences.
Your dogs ability directly coincides with how you treat your dog. If you treat your dog like a dog that can learn basic tricks, it will learn basic tricks nad nothing more.
If you treat your dog like a 2 to 4 year old, it will learn at that level and learn sophisticated operations.
I couldn't believe dogs new 4 year old math. It's pretty interesting.
I've only had my new pet for a week, but he knows:
and he jumps and twirls on his hind feet a little when he sees me get the leash for a walk. so cute to see such excitement for the simple pleasures.
Our dog, Lightning, is a white german shepard. My hubby is a neatnik and taught her how to wipe her feet when she comes in the house
She keeps wiping until you tell her ok, Holly
PS She also does the usual tricks.
My mini doxie, Peanut, is just too short to jump up on most things. She used to drive me nuts when she wanted to get up on my lap when I was working. She would just sit there and bark. So I taught her to just step on the top of one of my feet with her hind legs. I then lift up my foot with her on it and voila! Kind of like a personal doggie elevator!
I have two cats Ethel and CIA, and they enjoy fetching paper balls. They get excited when I crumple the paper up, then fetch when I throw it. They actually are very good at bringing it back. Dropping it at my feet. Sometimes Ethel just swats it back when I point to my feet.
He goes and gets his leash and meets me at the front door for walks. He also puts his leash back when we return home. Or he'll go to the back door and hit a bell with his nose (or paw) to be let out.
He can also sit, stay, shake, lay down, roll over, and just look super cute.
My cat comes when I call his name, even if he's in the middle of a nap.
My parrot can ride a parrot tricycle, skateboard down a ramp on a tech deck, he uses a kid slide made just for him, and he runs through a tunnel as he says peekaboo. While he sits on my fingers , if you say pow or faint he throws himself backwards and hangs there. This is only a few thing he does
