Excerpt: "The first few months with Clem, my adopted Cattle Dog, were impossibly difficult. She was skittish and shy of everything. She constantly chewed and got in the trash. Every noise and movement caused her to roll over and pee in submission. The shelter s behavior helpline was quick to suggest giving her a job to do, attending classes that used positive training techniques, and providing lots of exercise. Playing disc, flyball, and agility immensely helped her behavior to improve! Clem knew I would change from pajamas to jeans before taking her outside. One day, as she whined to go out, I said, Hang on! You know I have to change my pants. She cocked her head to one side and trotted off to the bedroom. Thirty seconds later she came back dragging a pair of my jeans that she had dug out of the laundry basket. I had never taught her this trick. That s when I realized she was much smarter than I had thought!" -Aly Jabrocki
