Technically, those parlor tricks like 'knowing their name' and 'basic obedience training' are nothing but showboating and don't help find birds. My sawdust brained pointers only need to come when the collar goes 'beep', hold a point til I get to them, and cover country like coyote on steriods! This puts birds in the bag.
Maybe you and that 'smart dog' can join the dog clown circus--lot's of really smart dogs jumping through fire rings!
My pudel and I will be at the Salon de Chien getting our mani-pedis while we wait for your apology.
