I have posted before that Viljo is a thinking dog. He has shown this since he was a young puppy. Tonight, Viljo has gotten his paws on Owl's favorite ball. It is a treat dispenser and I have put a few pieces of kibble inside. This puzzle is new to Viljo and here he is thinking about how best to go about it!
V uses his paws more like hands than any dog I have ever had. He opens crate doors that are completely, even snuggly closed, as long as they're not latched. (Give him time on the latch part!) And, as I have also written before, Viljo has excellent spatial awareness and body control. In other words, he may also be the most sure-footed dog I have ever had.
Thank you, Tia, for such a nice dog. I really enjoy him.
ps Viljo quickly learned that this is an action puzzle and rolling the ball is the key to it!
