What some people don’t realise is that you can train your pups to do a lot of stuff! Most pups, especially those with working breed heritages, are incredibly intelligent.
Many working pups have the double bonus of being both intelligent and people pleasers – in other words, they are not only smart enough to train, but they also want to do so to make Mom and Dad happy!
Which means you can get pups to do cute little stunts like what this Beagle named Oliver is doing! First, upon hearing his name being called by Dad, he rushes down the staircase to greet him, tiny feet clicking on the tiles! Then, Dad orders him to “play song”. Upon Dad’s command, this pup attempts to play the piano! What a smart boy!
He then is obviously rewarded by Dad with some treats, reinforcing this associated wanted behaviour with the command via positive reinforcement. Truly, this pup has now mastered a fun party trick!
