Lewis Moon Posted February 8, 2012 Report Share Posted February 8, 2012 Every once in a while it dawns on me just how much I take Cerbs intelligence for granted. I really expect him to do what I tell him, no matter if I've trained it or not. A couple of examples: Last night when I came to bed Cerb was curled up on the spot where my feet would go. Without thinking and much fanfare I said "move it, buddy" and he promptly moved over where I could get in comfortably. Not real big but it showed he was thinking. Then there was the little Yorkie cross we were sitting. She's very playful and Cerb was obliging her, but with the 30lb weight difference I was worried. I told Cerb to sit, he did (duh) but he then proceeded to endure her onslaught of nips and bats without reciprocating. He just pulled in his chin and took it. That is exactly what I meant for him to do, but it's nothing I really trained for or expected. I'm sure there is a lot of other stuff, but the gist is, I now just expect Cerb to do what I tell him, no matter what (within reason). There are plenty of times he doesn't get it right, and you can see him hunting and trying, but I'm pretty knocked out by how often he does get it right.
