In all my dog training research I ran across a number of videos describing how to teach your dog things like jumps and belly crawls. Well, without ever trying to teach her anything, I’ve witnessed Charlotte execute flawless jumps over an elevated board next to the driveway while in pursuit of a squirrel. Then tonight, without having ever been shown how, she belly crawled the length of the coffee table -under the coffee table – because she couldn’t get out any other way to chase the cat. Obviously, given the proper motivation, my dog will teach herself any number of difficult teicks. To bad the proper motivation seems to be a live animal that is smaller and quicker than her.
