Our new dog is way smarter than the beagle. We couldn’t get the beagle to do anything.
The new dog has been taught to sit, give paw, and to ring the bells on the door when he wants to go out. I am amazed at this. This is my second dog ever, and I am used to much more intelligent animals (cats).
He has also been training us. Training us to let him out of his crate when the cats’ food dispenser goes off in the morning. So much that we had to change the time of the dispensing so we weren’t wakened at 4:30. He’s been training us to give him belly rubs and bring him biscuits when we crate him.
I’m beginning to think that training is a two way street.
