Dogs are creatures that possess the rare potential to be really dumb or really smart.
You never know what you’re going to get.
Take the COVID-19 sniffer dogs as an example. They’re amazing, and if their training pans out as planned, they will be able to help us trace the virus faster than current testing systems.
Then there’s a friend’s dog, who seems to have made it his mission in life to lie directly in the path of anyone trying to walk around the house, despite being accidentally stepped on multiple times.
If you’ve been locked up with a dog, smart or silly, I’m sure the new exercise regulations are a welcome relief.
If you’re isolating with a puppy, things are a little tougher. They’re easily bored, full of energy, and often haven’t reached a level of obedience that makes it possible to go for a walk.
Mashable reckons they’ve found a trick that’ll solve your problems.
Enter the very latest in puppy fun technology: a kitchen island and a leash.
This development modifies the old “chasing your tail” routine and pits a determined yellow lab baby against the laws of physics. Will she catch the elusive leash end? Watch to find out.
Simple, yet effective.
Just keep an eye on your pup if you want to try this out, to make sure they don’t become tangled or hurt themselves.
