|and I was a little shocked at the results.
Shadow thinks its wonderful, and figured it out in seconds. It gives out chicken hotdogs so its her new best friend I was a bit surprised at how quickly she learned to move the pieces and with no input from me.
Bud tried to eat it first but once I discouraged that he actually figured it out. I had to prompt a bit but he did get it and learned a new command- push- in the process. He isn't really a bright dog so I wasn't surprised that he needed help.
The real surprise was Sabi. She couldn't figure it out and more importantly got frustrated and actually walked away. She lives for food and this is the dog we had to carry off a track after 2.5 hours when the police finally gave up.( she found the guy an hour later anyway at an unrelated call). I was shocked when she gave up, and a bit concerned. I expected this to be a no brainer for her, all she had to do was slid the pieces over. She barely tried. She can open doors and gates, she figured out how to slip a choke chain, she just about trained herself and she quits on a simple puzzle?
So is this just an age thing? Is this another of her 'I don't do tricks' things? I was just really surprised and I'm not sure if I should be worried.
