I resemble that remark!
The thing that makes me really makes me laugh is when OH gives the dogs a command and I have to tell him they don't understand what you have asked so they can't comply. They also when told by oh to do something they understand look at me for the ok so funny.
I have a game I play with the dogs. Sort of impulse control. They have a cue for taking food, treats, toys etc...which is "take it!"
So I place a high value treat in front of the dogs. They know to wait until the cue is given. I can even walk into another room. I say all sorts of random words before they have the "take it" cue So they have to think about it, and not bolt the treat on the first word I say. So I might say things like Cucumber! Parsnip! And they don't move. Not a muscle.
So OH tries it today. I don't know what he does differently, but they sit waiting nicely...he calls "spaghetti!" and all three bolt down their treats...priceless!
