This is a really interesting article. I'll tell you what though, cats don't exactly fall behind on this either.

Dogs have a sense of fairness. (

Oh boy, Keely is living proof that this is true! When i have the dogs i walk in the yard i ussually do give them a bit more attention simply because it will be the only attention they will get all day. And keely gets mad. She knows it isnt fair so she will avoid me. She will go over on the bench and chew her ball or somethkng! lol.. Its amazing at what they can interprut!

Interesting article. I actually taught Molly "touch it" (an agility command) by having her watch my sisters dog do it with me first. They both got treats of course :lovestruck:
I LOL'd at this quote from the article: "Those that refused at the start _ and one border collie that insisted on trying to herd other dogs _ were removed. " :laughing: silly Border Collies!
