Mindy's learning to read in class!!!
So yesterday in obedience class we started teaching our dogs to read! Mindy is my mixed maltese/yorkie (still looking for my chocolate hav) and she's about 20 months old. We had cards with SIT and DOWN to start with. First we showed them the card and verbally gave the command. Once they got that, we just showed them the card and told them to read it. Mindy got it right about 80% of the time. I thought maybe it was luck, but today I worked with her and out of 12 times she got it right 100% of the time!!!! You can actually see her study the writing on the cards- it is so funny. I'll start adding more cards for shake hands, rollover, dance, etc. It's so cute. Once I get my new scanner I'll try to post some pics.
