Default Ever teach your dog something that wasn't such a great idea?

Like the time I thought it would be fun to teach Tallulah to chase my feet under the covers?

Not quite the same thing as a cat chasing them, ya know?

Uhhh yeah. LOL I refuse to treat shake anymore or bark on command. They are really annoying defaults when dogs get confused, imo.

When Zoe was a puppy, she pawed a lot, so I taught her "Gimme five" really quickly. Now she paws with her giant bear claws all the time. Part of it is just her style of communication, but it is also a default for her, being one of the first commands she learned.

Now that we're doing nosework, I know she'll get into pawing at the source, which is bad for trialing, where destroying boxes during the container search - and cars during the vehicle search - is faulted.

Caleb's thing is nosing the tin or straw. And if I'm not fast enough, he picks it up. Goes back to teaching him to pick stuff up for me ("Gee, Mom, that tin/straw doesn't belong there. I'll get it for you").

Embyr knows how to open the fridge, but she doesn't do anything with it unless asked. I started to teach Copper, my food crazed Foxhound, and thought better of it. I'm glad I did.

Same here, Adrianne, lol! There's a good reason I call Tallulah my Bottomless Pit.

Kharma . . . I suspect she knows (I caught her nosing at the door opening a couple of times and told her she'd better not even think about it). However, she has a faithful servant to do such things. Just as well, she'd probably put something metal in the microwave or leave the stove on, lol.

She does make phone calls every now and then. She's called Buckshot several times (he knows its her and they have a conversation) and the other day she somehow managed to call Romy's old number -- the one for the phone her ex now has. I think it shook him up a bit, lol. Guess it's a good thing I don't have any pizza places on the memory?

Shake. Worst thing to ever teach Chewy, and it's her go-to now. When you're eating, when she's bored, when you're trying to work on something else and she gets frustrated and claws your thigh to pieces instead... It was really useful if I ever wanted her to do something with her feet, like Cross Your Paws, but she still feels the need to claw like a cat.

I taught Lugia to run between my legs from behind... now she does it to everyone at the dog park It's so funny to see people just milling about unsuspectingly, when suddenly a puppy forcefully squeezes herself between their legs causing their knees to buckle, as she runs off in the opposite direction. As amusing as it is to watch it happen to other people, it can get a little annoying when I'm cooking in the kitchen or something, and she comes up to me unannounced and tries to weave through my legs.
