Thanks!  They ARE smart, aren't they?  I always tell my husband that I know Trixie could do anything...I am the one who has to find a way to communicate to her what it is that I want, and she will do it!  They are so sweet in addition to their smartness...the perfect creatures! :)

Wow amazing but I am not too surprised.  Doodles are mega smart and I believe they can do anything! Pretty human!!!

Thanks, Alessandra!  I will be interested to know what the book might have to say about how exactly Trixie understands our "flash cards".  I try not to, but I suspect I must show some subtle body language change or I don't think she'd be able to respond correctly when the cards change order.  Since we made this little video we have added "WAIT" to the cards.  I hold that up, walk away for a few seconds (out of sight if possible depending where we're playing) and she stays where she is until I come back.  She REALLY loves her treats, so she'll try very hard to figure out what she needs to do in order to get them!  Kind of like me with dark chocolate!! :)

Trixie, you are beautiful and smart! This is amazing Debbie! I've mentioned a few times that I'm reading this book called "Inside of a Dog" and among other things, it mentions several tests that they've conducted with dogs to compare their "understanding" of our human forms of communication, so I will go back and read up how they would explain this behaviour of Trixie, because whether she understands variations of the signs or changes on your behaviour as you show them to her, it's still pretty amazing!! Congrats!

Wow, I'm also impressed.  Trixie is a smart dog.  Makes we want to try this with my little guy.  He needs  a challenge.  :-)

I may have to try this with Jackson.  He would sell his soul for a treat!!!!!
