  1. It’s the same as all the other commands your dog can learn. You can teach them to fetch their toys and put them back for example. It requires a lot of training though, it’s not like they just understand you or what you say, since you teach with keywords

  2. My dog does this why I ask if she wants to go for a car ride. She grabs my keys off the coffee table. Of course I’ve created a monster since she grabs them when she wants to go for a ride and not when I tell her to. So it’s like 3 am and you hear keys clanging because she wants to go for a ride.

  3. I can’t remember exactly what but my husband said something (probably “Let’s go…”) and the dog heard and got all excited.

    Unfortunately it was bed time and we were not going anywhere until the next day. Pup had a hard time getting settled back down for bed.

    I got slightly annoyed and asked why he would say that in front of the dog if he wasn’t going to deliver on an outing.

    “I can’t help it if he speaks English.”

    Couldn’t argue with that.

  4. yeah, this is evidence of a well trained dog, not necessarily an *aware* dog (also, not necessarily NOT an aware dog, we just don’t see that). My dog isn’t as well trained, but she’s completely aware of the fact that she’s not allowed to chew on any toy that’s not hers when I’m around, but the second I start walking away she knows she can jump the fence and roll around with my kid’s plushies without punishment. Smart and naughty and dumb all at once (still only one year old, we’ll get there). Also decent with object permanence, especially when it’s something she wants: “it’s not under the cup, which means you took it, you bastard! stop trying to trick me!”

  5. I love that within all that excitement, he always has those little momentary pauses to listen. I need a dog

  6. There was an episode of Scientific American hosted by Alan Alda years ago that had a dog who had learned the names of all of his little stuffed animal toys… and there were dozens of them. They called out a name, he got the right one – every single time over and over. Then someone buried a new toy in the pile that the dog had never seen and they called out a name that he didn’t know. He took off, stopped and came back as if to ask, “What’s that again?” and hesitated. He dug through the pile and – I assume by a process of elimination – was able to connect the toy he had never seen with the name he had never heard and picked it.

  7. I was waiting for the end twist when he says “alright let’s go to the vet” and the dog dies inside.

  8. we had a real smart mutt who knew all the different names of his toys. tennis ball, blue ball, bone, etc. he was a good boy too, except when left at home. he was smart enough to have anxiety.

  9. My daughter worked in a vet clinic. She was the first one in in the morning and would often be met at the door by the clinic dog holding all the leashes in her mouth. Nobody taught her that.

  10. Bully breeds are incredibly smart and inquisitive by nature. Mine has a full vocabulary of words that she learned all by herself, via the method of association.
