We have had Chico for about nine months now, and although he is becoming more doglike by the day, he has always remained aloof. Aloof is probably the best way of putting it. When you try and train him, he readily accepts the treats but doesn't look like he really understands why he has been given them. I spent a while trying to train him to shake one of his front paws, while standing. I ended up giving up cause I don't think he fully grasped the concept. My mother started to train him to walk backwards on cue, and he did learn it, although even then we wonder if he really knows what he is doing.
I knew my younger sister had been working with Diego while I was down in Wellington, but it turns out she was working with Chico too. This last weekend, I was up in Whanganui and she showed me this...
To say I was surprised was an under statement, and I made sure that she showed me multiple times to prove it wasn't a fluke. It wasn't. Also, I apologise for the poor photos, but I needed to get photographic proof as it was happening.
Does your Greyhound know how to sit, or do you know a Greyhound that does? I would love to see photos, you can post them to our Facebook Wall, or Tag us on Instagram!
