Some of us dog owners can’t even get our dogs to “stay,” “sit” or “shake a paw.” But this owner has trained his dog to do much more.
After the owner throws the ball, he entices his dog with a game similar to Simon Says.
“Okay, go slowly.” The dog moves forward a few steps.
“Just a little bit more.” The dog takes one step closer.
“Okay, now back up.” The dog takes a few steps backwards, moving away from the coveted prize.
This little game goes on for a while until the dog has his nose touching the ball, but has enough self-restraint to let it be.
“Okay, now when I say 3, you can get the ball.”
“11, 25.” The dog remains still.
“3.” The dog finally has captured the ball.
