    It's a study on this! I have the paper on my to-read list. I can't wait to read about the methods they used!

    That's really interesting. I will definitely be trying this out with Chloe. Let us know how it goes if you test this!

    Yeah, I'll read it soon to check what methods they used exactly. Though, from what I read, the sample size is very small (just 8 dogs, and 4 of them were BCs) so I don't know if this would work on all dogs.

    Very cool... lets do this as a trick challenge :)

    Very interesting. So does that mean that is why Ripley always digs more out on a walk after I have been gardening? :confused:

    Well... my teacher always said that he thought that one of the main reasons dogs dug was that they wanted to "garden" like us :p

    I think I may agree with your teacher!!!

    Seriously though I do think it would make a great trick challenge!

    Yeah me too! I'll try to read it asap and post the method here. I started reading it but (a) I have an exam tomorrow and (b) it made reference to methods in other papers and I had to track them down too. I spent the time I was going to use on reading it on finding the paper "dependencies" haha.
