I considered removing him as an experiment to see but haven't done it yet.

Also not sure if I was just accused of driving a Prius but I do not.

Right.......how many Malinois can you fit in your Prius ??

Sunflowers Funny, the same thing happened to me last night. I asked, "Are you hungry?" and he ran and sat nicely in his pen.

I didn't know he knew he was "the dog." Yesterday I said something about "the dog" and he sat up and stared at me with his pointy ears up high.

He also comes running whenever somebody operates the ice maker. Apparently, he thinks it's time for catch the stray cube.

The most interesting one happened this morning. I wanted him in his pen and I said, "Come here," and he ran all the way across the room and got in. I didn't need to tell him to go there. I suppose I use the same tone every time I want him to get in.

wolfy dog Finishing up a phone conversation = "now we are going for a walk".
Putting on any kind of shoe = "now we are going for a walk".
Coming back from the bath room="now we are going for a walk".
Picking up my keys ="now we are going for a walk".
Opening up my PC in the AM="Oh no, better lie down and watch her"
Turning off the Daily Show= "Finally bedtime!"

glowingtoadfly Skadi knows she is supposed to come when I open the back door. She even recently ditched a ball in the backyard to come to me in this situation. Grim is still figuring this out but most of the time he does it. Grim knows he is going for a walk when I take out the treat pouch.

That's too funny! Titan is the same way with outside!! Two unintentional signs were, my BF putting in dip, he does it every time before he goes outside to play with Titan. So when he grabs it and starts packing the can, Titan runs to the door. Or if I grab a plastic bag for poo patrol.... Titan runs to the door.

So true about watching what they pick up.. I have heard other's dogs who picked up on turnign lights on or opening doors, all that. Had a cat once learn how to hook her claws into the screen door, fall to one side to open it jsut enough to squeeze out. Lol.

Jax08 Jax knows
I have to go get your food - runs to the basement door
Frisbee - runs to the front door like a maniac
Let's go to bed

I'm sure many others that I just don't pay attention to.

Seger learned this week
"You have to swing your ass"
We were working on some perchwork and him moving his read independently of my movement. I really hope that's not now his cue.

This is how I train the off-leash heel. It's all verbal cues, words my dog understands already, with the exception of adding "with me" to the "stay" and I much prefer this way over any other method.

It's easy, if you have a quiet road and a destination already planned. Since my dog already knows a release word, and can recall, it's very simple to teach heel this way.
