    Very useful when you are too lazy to turn your book's pages.

    Cool a great trick, I may have to try this, I have quite a few wildlife books that could be used for this.
    Another trick added to my list

    Way too funny, now that's a first!! rofl!!
    Never saw that trick before!!:ROFLMAO:

    My family was going by and stopped to watch this, and asked, "What is that border collie doing?"

    I said, "I think he is censoring her book, :ROFLMAO: he disapproves of her book! The dog is trying to make her stop reading!!!":ROFLMAO:

    I know it's scary. There's something human about her, sometimes I wonder who's in there ! :)

    You may try with a clicker if he does not understand what you want. Put the book in front of him and wait. If he knows "touch", use it. As soon as he touches the book with his nose, reward him. Don't reward if he touches with his paw. Help him understand you want him to lift the first page, show him if needed. Reward any attempt. And let us know :)
