My family takes pride in our little Seamus as being a very intelligent puppy, but then again, we don't have any dog to compare him to. (We did have a dog before him, but she was old and disabled.) His tricks (that are either completely or mostly locked in) are as follows: Sit. Lie down. Stand on hing legs. Speak. Shake (separate hands for separate paws). Stay. So, is this normal for a puppy?
