As you all know I have 2 dogs, Ike & Alfie. Alfie is about 2 1/2 years old and Ike is an old boy who will be 10 in November, we think.
My morning routine, get up, go and switch the kettle on, go to the bathroom in bare feet. By the time I get back to the kitchen to make my coffee Alfie is there with a slipper for me!
This is Alfie this morning bringing my slipper
when he has given me the first slipper, and got a small reward, he goes off and gets the other one! No one has taught him to do this, and I just think he his a real star! I don't have to look for slippers ever again! What more could I want? I would like him to look for keys, mobiles...... lol Only joking Alfie.
and this is Alfie waiting for a treat. You can just see Ike is standing at the side of him waiting for a treat too! He's a wise old dog and gets in on the act for the treats! lol
Ike brings you slippers when you get home everyday. Ike was about 3 years old when we rescued him and he has always brought slippers or shoes, we did not train him to do this he did it from a few days after he came to live with us. Alfie was about 5/6 weeks old when our daughter brought him home, and Ike has been like a Dad to him, looking after him, washing him when he was very small. So IKe could have taught him or Alfie just learnt from Ike who knows but I just think it is great, don't you?
