    LOL.Must do this when I get home....If you cover a newfie with a towel, they will just stay there, That is part of newfie-dom. You cover it, you take it off. I do what you want ...We do the three cup thing all the time. It is one of our traicks to show the kids. Poor Lukey has no idea, the other three are so fast. We also do the one where they are out of the room and we look at the correct cup.
    As to the barrier, hey we are newfies we go through, take the barrier along. We always test things, we are newfies. But I am going to try them all

    Chair puzzle:
    Place a treat under a table or chair low enough so your dog can only fit her paw and cannot fit her head. If your dog figures how to reach the treat within one minute, score 3 points. If she uses her paws and nose, score 2 points. If your dog gives up, score 1 point.
    Evil hound is very good at this one, has had a lot of practice, but if it's too hard for her to reach she roo roos and tells me to get it for her. And she's kind enough to show me where it is.

    And I think I read another test once where they said that if a dog shows they know when it is time for the scheduled walk, that is a sign of intelligence too. Which is quite different to them reacting to a lead being picked up.

    Some of those test require lots of preparation too. Rearrange the room?!
