I wish my dog could do this...


This is a really smart dog. Seems to understand English and do all those high jumps, walk on hind legs, walk on front legs, ride a skate board, etc... I wish my dog could do all that.

And a dedicated human.

I used to have a dog that knew each of his toys by name and would retrieve them on command no matter where they were in the house. After a while he'd learn the new toys name by exception. If he had a new toy and you asked him to get a toy that he didn't know the name of, he figured out that it must be the name of the new toy.

He pushed me to be the alpha dog. I had to prove that I was by digging deeper and hunting more rats. His eyes almost bugged out the first time I got out a shovel and the dirt began to fly.

And he understood enough English that sometimes my ex and I had to spell stuff out.

Dogs love to learn new stuff. You just have to do the work.

That's a fact. My two are smart, but not that smart. Most people (including myself) lose ambition after covering the basic commands, if they even do that.

It always seems to be the Aussie breeds or Border Collies that are these über athletic smarties.

Definitely. Pound for pound, JRTs get impressive altitude.

Mine were brothers, and they hunted as a pack. Once, one flushed a rat out of a tree and the rat leapt into the mouth of the other while trying to flea. Oooops.
