|My absolute worse are my Frenchies... it's a darn good thing they are entertaining or I would be crazy!!! I say "come" and my labs and poodles and cresteds bowl each other over to get to me first. Those Frenchies do not even wiggle the tip of their bat ears as they continue in the other direction.
I had one who went to work with me every single day...about 75 yards across the parking lot. For 15 or 16 days she would walk over with me at a perfect heel, then with no warning at all, would head for the hills, literally, the next day.
Sadly, they are also clowns but if I am in a hurry and trying to get them to do something I am in no mood for their clowning around. I DO have to laugh, though!!!
Now I just don't even try to teach them anything... they are great in the house and I keep them on leash outside. Works for me, works for them!
I have had two males, still have one, who were escape artists. They would chew thru the wire holding the chain link to the bottom pipes then escape. But, they BOTH immediately headed up the hill to the vet clinic next door. They would walk in with whomever was entering the building and pretend they were that person's new pet. The receptionists would give them a biscuit and call me to come get them.
I can't tell you how many times I have put everyone in their crates for the night, gone to bed, and then found Lola sleeping under my desk where she had been hiding from me. My poodles would NEVER do that!!!
