Talking Sneaky things your dog does

GSDs are smart, obviously, but does your dog do any particularly sneaky things?

Kind of a classic example, but Lara figured out how to remove the lid off the trash can. When no one is around I will hear her nosing it off and come in to find her snout under the edge, then she gets the guilty face. She's never successfully stolen something out of the trash though

She will also sneak into my bedroom and when I go in there to see what she's up to, she will grab a ball she has stashed nearby so it doesn't look like she was being naughty, but sometimes I find wet socks nearby and such

Ours would flip the trashcan lid up to sniff, I could hear it from the living room. She also had a thing with open cabinets and doors. I would open the lower cabinet to get the hand drying towel out and she would close it. All the doors in the house would be closed. etc.

Oh, and my wife had a tea cart on wheels in the hall for awhile, dog would constantly move that cart around.

yes, he steals anything he can. He loves to sneak the paper off the printer and shred it. He did the nose the trash can lid up and he tries to steal the trash. I put a 10 pound weight on it. Pretty soon he'll be able to lift that as well. He tries.

He sneaks slippers, clothes out of the laundry hamper and loves to take paper towels out of the trash and shred them.

Yesterday he grabbed my new slipper and ran outside with it. Running around the yard. He thinks it's a game and won't "leave it" or drop it". Then he runs to the pool. I say "No, Don't you..." and he leans over and drops it in the pool....looked at me like " I dropped it" . He can be a mischievous dog...lol

He is getting a lot better though. Today he wanted to play with his bite wedge. He kept grabbing my pants leg and pulling me. I got out the bite wedge, played for a bit and now he's sleeping.

Lisl can open her crate latches. I have to use carbiners and a Master lock to keep her inside while at work.

I swear if she had the key she'd be out before I got home.

Dexter displays items he does not approve of all over the lawn,

Snowboard boots all over the lawn
Halloween witch shredded all over the lawn
barn board i was selling all over the lawn
basketball shredded all over the lawn
socks and undies stolen out of the laundry basket all over the lawn

and he lays in the middle of all his carefully dispenced items and looks at you with the "you should have really walked me sooner" look.

Although the snowboard boots were when his daddy went away to whistler to snowboard, after that stunt he spent the next 4 days underneath brendans bed and would not come out, he gets easily depressed when all his families not around

Not my shepherd, but my sneaky Maltese! She's obsessed with my underwear, and sneaks into the laundry room to steal panties when I leave the door open.

A few months back I was "fence" talking with my next door neighbor, while she was sitting beside me chewing on her toy, so I thought. When we finished our chat and I turned around, she was chewing on my undies. I know my neighbor noticed, and I went inside to die of shame. :-)
